Why isn't floodlight allowing me to set up without Bridge

The packaging doesn’t say you need to purchase a bridge to have this item work. I’ve Wired it, mounted it, turned power back on and nothing happened. Flipped switch a couple of times, still nothing. Is this a bad unit, or am I required to purchase a bridge to set up and have this work?

Hi @Dsmoyak. The Ring Bridge is required to connect your Floodlight. The Bridge acts a hub and controller for all of your Ring Smart Light devices. Here is some FAQs on the Ring Floodlight. I hope this information helps!
