Every function of the lights on your Spotlight Cam Battery is available in your Ring App. The remainder of this article will explain the various controls available to utilize your lights. 

Motion Settings

Tap on the Motion Settings tile for access to the motion zone and Lights controls. 

Motion Zone Controls

Your motion zone controls are where you'll adjust the range and distance at which motion will turn your lights on. Your lights use passive infrared detectors (PIR) to detect motion in three 90 degree arcs around the device. With this, you can adjust the range at which your lights activate.

Question: Will the lights on my Spotlight Cam Battery turn on every time it detects motion?

Answer: As a default setting. the lights on the Spotlight Cam Battery will only turn on for motion events when it's dark. If it is dark outside and your lights aren't turning on you can adjust your motion sensitivity for triggering the lights. 

Note: You will not receive any motion alerts until you set at least one motion zone.
