Hi, new here and new Ring smart light customer. I just installed the battery flood lights on my patio and am doing some final tweaks with setup. Initially, I used Duracel ProCell D batteries and was just curious what others maybe using? And what kind of battery life expectancy is reasonable? I know that has to do with a lot of variables (frequency of motion/action, temps, etc.) but for general purposes.
On that last point, I’d also be curious if anyone could share any of their ideal settings. As in my case, I am using the lights cranked up to full brightness and length of time per motion detected at 5 mins (max). Perhaps this is a bit overkill but I wanted to test this out fully to see what I could get from the lights.
FYI, there is not too much activity around the patio area where I installed the lights. We installed them to get some extra light when we let the dog out and also to light up side of house where I keep the garbage can and park my truck. Overnight I had only one motion occurrence (when wife took dog out before she went to bed).
Any help appreciated! And sorry if this has been discussed before, I didn’t find any good answer on my searches.
