Spotlight Cam Setup Mode

While setting up Ring Spotlight 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 right of the camera.

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 Spotlight Cam is in Setup Mode?

You'll know your Spotlight Cam is in setup mode when the light on the bottom is flashing.

The light at the bottom of the Spotlight Cam isn't lighting up. Is something wrong?

While setting up Ring Spotlight Cam, you'll need to make sure the device is able to go into "Setup Mode.” In doing so, you may notice the LED lights aren’t responding on the front of the camera. If this happens, please follow the troubleshooting guide below:
