Ring Indoor Camera Red Light

I have a Ring Indoor Camera, sometimes the red light on the fron of it is on. The panphlet that came with the camera does not mention a red light only blue. Ring does not have a owners manual available to download for this camera.

Any ideas?

Thanks

That red light is the infrared sensor that comes on in low light or dark.

If the red lights are on in Home mode, does it mean that the camera is still videoing when it should be off? Potentially being accessed by a hacker?

In home mode surely the camera will be videoing. In disarm mode is when it won’t !

I’ve noticed a red light on mine recently too even when I’m in Home mode at home. I was concerned thinking somebody hacked and was watching but I played around with it and it goes off when lights are on or daylight. The red light is on when it’s dark. I think they must’ve changed something because it never did that before.

Hi @bcooney91. Correct, the red light on the Indoor Cam is the Infrared Light that is used for night vision. When it is dark enough in the room, this light will activate. :slightly_smiling_face:

Why does the indoor camera red light come on (with a click) when motion detection, alert and live view are off? The camera should be doing nothing and whiting for instructions from my Ring system. The click is noticeable, annoying and concerning. Is This part of Amazon surveillance?

Yes, same question here. Never noticed it until earlier this week.

Hey neighbors. As you can see in the marked solution for this post, the red light is the infrared light. This comes on in low light settings and an audible “click” can be heard. :slightly_smiling_face:
