While setting up Ring Floodlight Cam, you will be asked to put the device into Setup Mode (note that the device will automatically enter Setup Mode the first time it receives power). In order to put the device into Setup Mode, press and release the small button on the top of the camera as shown in the image below.
What is Setup Mode?
When any Ring product is in setup mode, it broadcasts a temporary Wi-Fi network.
During the setup process, the Ring app will connect to this Wi-Fi network to "tell" your Ring product how to connect to your home Wi-Fi network. As soon as your Ring product has been set up in the Ring app, it will stop broadcasting this Wi-Fi network, and stay connected to your home network.
How do I know my Floodlight Cam is in Setup Mode?
You'll know your Floodlight Cam is in setup mode when the light on the bottom is flashing.
The light at the bottom of the Floodlight Cam isn't lighting up. Is something wrong?
There are three possible reasons why your light isn't lighting up:
- You're keeping the button pressed too long. Ensure that you are pressing the button firmly and releasing it immediately without holding it down. Holding the button down performs a different function.
- Your Floodlight Cam isn't receiving power.
- Your Floodlight Cam is wired incorrectly. To correctly wire your device, refer to Installing your Ring Floodlight Cam and consult a qualified electrician.
