Using spotlight cam as a motion sensor floodlight without wifi

My apartment community has been having issues with people breaking into our detached garages. I want to set up my Ring spotlight camera in my garage but the wifi connection will not reach. I’m not sure an extender will help since I live on the 3rd floor, but I was wondering if I can use the camera as a motion detector floodlight without wifi connection. If there’s any hope of the chime pro working please let me know, but at the very least I’d like to get the floodlight working if at all possible. Thanks!

If you are wanting just a Floodlight on the garage, for use of the lights, Ring Smart Lighting is a great option. There is a Smart Lighting Floodlight and more available. A Smart Lighting Bridge will be needed to obtain smart functionality in the Ring app, which uses an efficient long range connection frequency. Smart Lighting can also be linked with other Ring devices in the Ring app.

As for using a Floodlight Camera manually, the motion functions are dependent on settings in the Ring app. Turning your lights on and off via a physical switch is just a manual override and is a safety feature of any brand of floodlight, not just the Floodlight Cam. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
