This article will outline the step-by-step process to install your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro. Before you begin installing your Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Pro, make sure that you’re following safety code standards.
WARNING: Electrical shock hazard. Disconnect power to installation area at your circuit breaker or fuse box before beginning installation. Always use caution when handling electrical wiring.
Installation by a qualified electrician may be required in your area. Refer to your local laws and building codes before performing electrical work; permits plus professional installation may be required by law.
Your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro must be installed on a 4“ round UL listed weatherproof electrical box.
Make sure the power is turned off at the circuit breaker.

Prep your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro for Installation
Rotate both the lights outward if you are mounting the Ring Floodlight Cam Wired Pro on an eave or overhang.
Rotate one light downward, if you’re mounting to a wall.
Remove Your Existing Floodlight
With the power off at the circuit breaker, remove your existing floodlight at the junction box and disconnect the wires.
If there is a metal bracket attached to the junction box, remove that as well.
Choose Your Screws
Select a set of screws that fit your junction box from the bags marked A through F. Save a screw from either bag B or C for one of the following steps.
Bag A - standard screws that fit most junction boxes
Bag B & C - longer screws for recessed junction boxes
Bag D, E & F - best for older boxes with smaller screw holes
Attach the Metal Mounting Bracket
Secure the metal mounting bracket with the screws you selected in the previous step.
Install the Plastic Mounting Plate
Pull gently from the opening of the plastic plate to free it from the fixture, then feed your power wires through the opening.
If you’re installing on a wall, the UP arrow should point up when your wires have been fed through the mounting plate.
If you’re installing under an eave, the arrow should point toward the wall.
Insert one of the screws from Bag B or C into the center hole, then tighten to secure.
Hang Up the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro
Locate the nylon strap on the back of your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro light fixture and loop the buckle at the end over the hook on the mounting plate. Make sure that the buckle and hook are secure before releasing the light fixture.
Connecting the Wires
WARNING: If you cannot easily identify the wires coming out of your junction box, have difficulty with them or are uncomfortable in any way, consult a licensed electrician.
The green wire on the the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro is the ground wire.
With the power still turned off at the breaker, use a wire nut from the bag marked G to connect the green wire coming from the junction box.
The white wire on the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro is a neutral wire. Use another wire nut from the bag marked G to connect the white (neutral) wire coming from the junction box.
The black wire on the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro is a hot wire. Use another wire nut from the bag marked G to connect the black wire from your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro to the black (hot) wire from your junction box.
Give all three wires a gentle tug to make sure they’re secure.
Mount the Fixture
Tuck the wires into the junction box, then align the two holes on the light fixture with the threaded posts on the plastic mounting plate. Slide the light fixture onto the posts and push firmly into place.
Secure the fixture using two of the hex cap nuts from Bag G over the ends of the threaded posts.
Remove the reversible bit from the included screwdriver and use the handle to tighten the hex cap nuts.
Restore the Power at the Breaker
Now that your floodlight Cam Wired Pro is installed, you can turn the power back on at the breaker. The lamps on your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro will flash once it’s powered on.
Complete the Setup in the Ring App
Once your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro is installed, follow the set up instructions in the Ring app. You can find the setup instructions here.
