Wiring Ring Floodlight Cam

Hi all, I just got Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Plus with motion-activated 1080p HD video, Black (2021 release) and need some help with wiring. Removing an old light fixture at the door, I got two grouped pairs of wires: (red and white) and (black and white); see photo for the outgoing 4 wires.

  1. Are red and black here active while whites nuteral? What the right 4-3 map to the green-black-white on the Ring cam?
  2. Can I mount the metal crossbar bracket directly into the wall, or I need a compatible 4” junction box?. I worry the mounting bracket won’t fit unless I put a junction box first, right?

Thank you sooo much for your help!!

Hi @rushdi. We have this Help Center page on installing a Floodlight Cam Wired Plus. It does require you to install it on a 4“ round UL-listed weatherproof electrical box, so I suggest not installing the crossbar bracket directly on the wall. As for figuring out those wires from your pre-existing light, I would strongly suggest consulting a qualified electrician for help.
