Wasn’t sure where to post this… App vs. Security Cams forums but my concern is more geared towards the wired Ring camera lights.
I’m an Android user and recently got a work-issued iPhone, so I thought I’d install the Ring app and check out the differences.
There are a few differences, but most notably, under the Light Settings for both my Floodlight and (Wired) Spotlight Cams has a toggle that states “_ **Turn on Lights with Motion.” ** _ I’m curious what this toggle specifically does, and why it’s not available on Android.
Does anyone know if:
Does this toggle only affect the PIR sensor below the camera, or does enabling this cause the light to come on when the CAMERA detects motion, rather than the PIR sensor below the camera? If so, could we then in turn disable the 3 PIR motion zones or just dial the sensitivy way back, and allow the cameras advanced motion detection dictate when the light turns on?
Will this feature be available on the Android platform? It really needs to be if this does what I think (and hope) this toggle does. (I did uninstall/reinstall the Android app but don’t have the toggle.)
The other notable difference is both my Wired Gen2 Stickup Cam, and Doorbell Pro both show firmware version 2.1.01005 in Android, and show “Up to Date” on the iPhone. --I’ve spoken to support last month on this and they confirmed that IS the correct and current version.
For reference I’m using my Samsung S8 on Ring app 3.22. 1 and an iPhone 6s on Ring app 5.22.4
