Ring Spotlight Camera not discoverable in Smartthings


(Valentine Joseph) #1

I have already added my Ring Floodlight and Doorbell 2 to Smartthings and I am able to use both as a motion sensor and I also have the ability to control the light with Smartthings. When I search for the Spotlight just those two devices are coming up, any help is appreciated.

Is it battery or mains powered? Only thing mains powered version will connect to SmartThings.

Thanks. I had a feeling this was the issue. I have the Battery with solar panel. Strange that SmartThings can use my doorbell which is battery but not the Spotlight. I wonder how the Amazon Hub pairs up with it. I would just like to be able to tell Alexa to turn my spotlight off or on like my floodlight

As an FYI, we have been waiting for a fix from Ring to enable integration for this device.

Will adding a power cable to the battery version make it discoverable?

or is it only the actual hardwired version

Any sense of when this will take place?

No ETA from Ring at this time.

Just installed my Spotlight Cam Battery and found this terrible news out. Any idea when this support will be added?

Also in the same boat. Hopefully Ring enables the Spotlight Battery/ST integration soon. Was hoping to motion activate my smart switchlight using the Ring Spotlight.

As a work around for now you can use stringify as all Ring devices and their functionality are available on it. I created a flow to switch on certain light switches when motion is detected on the ring spotlight cam battery.

Any update? Just spent an hour trying to connect a battery operated spotlight cam!

Would love an update on this too

Would love an update as well. I just spent an hour furiously searching the web for the fix.

The only compatibility for the spotlight camera is the Spotlight Camera Mount, and the Spotlight Camera Wired. Setting it up with the permanent USB battery charger won’t cut it. There is something digitally different with the battery equipped models that isn’t playing nice with others…
