Gotta say I am pretty excited to try Ring Outdoor lighting when it hits the market. I think what excites me the most if the ability to make the Ring lighting work with my current Ring ecosystem of products. Also the ability to trigger the lights based on motion to light up areas for safe entry in and out of the house. These lights combinded with my Ring Doorbells, Cameras and Ring alarm will give me yet another layer of security in my home. Anyone else going to get them when they come out?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I wanted to make note here that we are opting to delay the 4/17 launch of Ring Smart Lighting so we can perfect our product and assure you, our neighbors, have the best experience possible as soon as you set them up. This time will help us ensure we bring new Ring devices to market when we are confident they will best empower Neighbors with an affordable, effective way to monitor and secure their homes.
Thank you for you patience and for sharing your thoughts here. We appreciate them all!
I'm very excited, too! I plan on getting my dad the Pathlight's for the sidewalk leading up to the front door. It's so dark, whenever I visit I can't see anything-- these are going to be perfect! Are you looking at any in particular?
For sure I need about 6-8 pathlights for front and side paths, maybe 4 step lights, and a couple spotlights as well. That should give me some great lighting coverage around house.
I just pre-ordered the Transformer and Bridge. I needed a transformer for a 12V light I had sitting around. This smart one was not much more than other 200W dumb models I looked at. Love Ring's Customer Service. So, happy to invest in more of their ecosystem.
I expect they will update the app to allow a lighting schedule. Currently my solar lights are Dusk to Dawn, my wired lights are Dusk to 11PM and my battery lights are On with motion.
With the transformer, I want a combo of On from Dusk to 11PM and then On with motion until Dawn (motion tied into my other Ring devices [maybe other Alexa devices and cam's too?]).
Why is the Wired Floodlight $20 more than the Battery Floodlight?!?! Ring charges the same for the Wired or Battery Spotlight cams. Most companies charge more for their battery devices.
