Ring Spotlight CAM lights via Alexa

This is VERY frustrating.

The Ring skill in Alexa does not allow me to control the spotlights (On/Off) on my Spotlight Cams.

Samsung SmartThings can do this, and, in fact, the SmartThings Skill allows me to do this via Alexa (i.e. control my Spotlight Cam LED lights). There’s an annoying bug in the SmartThings Skill hence I want to control my spotlamps LED in Alexa directly via Ring (via the Ring Skill).

Not telling you your job Ring, but this simply means including the LED switch (on/off skill) in the RING skill…and this is Ring’s responsibility and code, not Alexa’s.

Bizarre that both companies are part of the Amazon group and the integration functionality is less than that of a third party. How embarrassing!

I too was very annoyed with the inabilty to control the floodlight lights with Alexa. I wanted the lights to turn on and off with sunset/sunrise but amazingly this is not an option in the Ring app. I figured I could do it in Alexa (just like my Lutron Caseta and Philips Hue lights) but no. The Ring lights are crippled and stuck within the featureless Ring app. Very disappointed with this so far and I can’t even adjust the ouptut level which is ridiculous…

I want to tell Alexa to turn the light on for one hour, or to snooze the light for one hour.

I often want to turn on my floodlight before people arrive so they can see my house number or simply want to work in my driveway without the lights turning off for no motion. Would be much more convenient to do via alexa then opening the ring app.
