Trigger floodlight to only turn on when a person is detected with camera

Hi all. I was robbed last week so I purchased a floodlight camera and have installed it with person alerts. I wondering if we have the option to only turn on the floodlight lights when a person is detected on the camera sensor. The reason being I want to set a trap to catch my theif so I only turn on the light when I have him recorded. (Otherwise, he’ll just run away when the floodlight turns on) Is there any way to do this or plans to do this in the future for sting operations? Thank in advance

Just to recap question if there’s too much to read: can we have the floodlight turn on at the exact same time a person is detected using the motion system on the camera?

Hi @TomP86. You should be able to decrease your Light Sensitivity to help the lights activate when a person is within your Camera’s motion detection range. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Open the Ring app
  • Choose the menu button (three lines in the upper left corner).
  • Select your Floodlight Cam
  • Tap Device Settings
  • Select Light Settings
  • Select Light Sensitivity, adjust it to your liking, and save.

I hope this helps.
