What is the Ring Bridge? Do I need to purchase one to use my Floodlight Wired?
Ring Bridge is the central hub that integrates Ring Smart Lights, Motion Sensors, and Transformers into your Ring system. The Bridge connects to the Ring app using your home Wi-Fi network and connects to other Ring Smart Lighting products using a proprietary long-range communication protocol.
Without the Ring Bridge, your Floodlight Wired functions only as a standard motion-sensing light. With a Bridge, you can control whole groups of lights at once and be notified via the Ring app when any light or Motion Sensor senses movement.
In addition, you can use your Ring app to create Groups of Smart Lights and Ring cameras that work together to enhance security. For example, if you’re subscribed to Ring Protect, your Ring Doorbell can begin recording video as soon as motion is detected by your Floodlight Wired. This provides footage that captures motion events earlier.
