Installing your Ring Spotlight Cam Wired is a simple process. The steps below will help you prepare and mount your Spotlight Cam.
Before physically installing your Spotlight Cam, it's important to set it up in your Ring App. Click here to learn how to do the in-app setup.
Select a location to install your Spotlight Cam. It's important when selecting a location to remember that Spotlight Cam is designed to be placed at an optimum height of five to seven feet with the motion detector parallel to the ground. This will put the motion sensor in a perfect position to detect human-sized objects at up to 30 feet.
Once you've selected your spot, turn the mounting bracket so that the word "Up" is facing you. Use the built-in level to make sure Spotlight Cam is even before using the bracket to mark your holes.
If installing on a masonry surface like stucco or brick, use the provided drill bit to make your holes, then insert wall anchors before installing the screws. If installing on a wood surface, use the install screws to screw the mounting bracket directly into your wall.
After installing your bracket, align the four screws on the base of Spotlight Cam with the small holes on the mounting bracket and push down into the slots, securely locking it. Use the Phillips end of the screwdriver bit to tighten the security screw on the right until Spotlight Cam is secure.
Use provided cable clips to secure the power cable to your mounting surface. Once again, use the provided drill bit if installing on a masonry surface. Then, insert the wall anchors before installing the screws. If installing on a wood surface, you can screw the cable clips directly into your wall. Feel free to paint the cable to match your wall, as well.
If Spotlight Cam isn't plugged in yet, go ahead and do so now. Wait a minute for Spotlight Cam to power up and come back online. Using the live feed on your phone, position Spotlight Cam to your desired view. Once you are happy, tighten the security screw on the right side to fix Spotlight Cam in position.
