Floodlight Cam Wired Plus Installation Guide

Before you begin

WARNING: Installation and wiring must be performed by a qualified and licensed electrician. Refer to your local laws and building regulations before installation; permits may be required by law.

  • Turn off power at the fuse box before installing.
  • Verify that the supply voltage is correct. Connect fixture to a 100~240 VAC 50/60 Hz power source.
  • The earth wire must be connected to the light fixture. DO NOT INSTALL if a working earth connection is not available.
  • Do not connect this light fixture to a dimmer switch or timer.

CAUTION: Risk of fire.

Do not install near combustible or flammable surfaces. Floodlight Cam Wired Plus must be installed on a wall or eve.

Installation Steps 

To install your Floodlight Cam Wired Plus device, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Ring app and select Set Up a Device. Then follow the in-app instructions.
  2. Scan the QR code found on the front of the manual, or on the back of the camera. This identifies your Ring device to make setup fast and easy.

4.        Prep your Floodlight Cam Wired Plus for installation

First, rotate the light out of the way, like this:

If you’re mounting on an eave or overhang, your camera is already in position.
If you’re mounting to a wall, rotate the camera into position like this:

5.        Remove your existing floodlight

  1. With power off at the fuse box, remove the existing floodlight from the wall and disconnect the wires. If there is a bracket attached to the wall, remove that as well.
  1. Remove the plastic mounting plate from the light fixture.

Push gently on the threaded posts visible on the front of the fixture and pull the bracket free.

 

6.        Install the anchors

If you’re installing on wood, skip this step.

If installing on stucco, brick or concrete, mark 2 drill holes using the plastic mounting plate as a template. Then, use a 6mm masonry drill bit (not included) to drill holes in the wall, and insert the included anchors.

7.        Install the mounting plate

Run the wires through the hole in the mounting plate.

Install the mounting plate with the two posts level with the ground, or level with the wall if mounting on an eave or overhang. Ensure the “UP” arrow is pointing upwards for wall mounting, and away from the area to be monitored for eave and overhang mounting.

Secure the plate with the two mounting screws. Then, push the included rubber plug over the screws to seal.

8.        Release the pressing plate

Using the Philips head end of the included screwdriver, loosen and remove one of the screws on the pressing plate and rotate it out of the way. Place the power cable into the channel, but don’t replace the pressing plate just yet.

With power still turned off at the fuse box, slide the earth wire into the centre bay on the bottom of the terminal block and tighten with the flathead end of the included screwdriver. Then slide the line wire into the bay on the bottom of the terminal block marked “L” and tighten with the flathead end of the screwdriver.

Repeat with the neutral wire, sliding it into the bay marked “N” and tightening with the flathead end of the screwdriver.

Tug each wire individually to make sure they are secure.

Align the two holes on the light fixture with the threaded posts on the plastic mounting plate. Slide the light fixture onto the posts and push it firmly into place.
