Smart Lighting and Alexa

With Ring Smart Lighting, you can also control your lights and manage most of their settings directly with Alexa. Ring Skill is compatible with all Ring Smart Lighting, 3P Works With Ring Light Switches and non Ring landscape lighting connected to the Ring Smart Lighting Transformer. Ring Smart Lighting also works with Alexa Routines. Look for your Ring Lights under the Devices section of Routines in the Alexa app.

Note: A Ring Bridge is required for Alexa integrations.

Note: Non Ring landscape lighting must be connected to the Ring Smart Lighting Transformer.

  • Turn your Smart Lights on and off.
  • Manage your Ring app settings like Groups, Motion Sensitivity, Motion Alerts, Turn On Duration, and Auto Shut-Off Timer for all your lights.
