What is the Ring Smart Lighting Wall Light Solar?
Ring Smart Lighting Wall Light Solar is an outdoor, motion-sensing smart light that can be mounted to walls and other surfaces around the perimeter of the home.

What is a Ring Bridge?
Ring Bridge is the central hub that integrates Ring Wall Light Solar into your Ring system.

For example, if you’re subscribed to Ring Protect, your Ring Doorbell can begin recording video as soon as motion is detected by a linked device, which can then turn on the Wall Light Solar.
