Ring Smart Lighting enhances home security by using light to act as a deterrent to criminal opportunists. Plus, built in cameras mean you can check what's going on from any location, should motion be detected. In addition to enhancing your home security through the use of cameras and motion detection, Ring Smart Lighting doubles up as an effective outdoor light, perfect for making your way from the car to the house late at night that little bit safer.
This battery powered spotlight is designed to illuminate a space with 400 Lumens of brightness, as soon as motion is detected. The kit also comes with the Ring Bridge, a handy device that enables users to keep track of exactly when motion is detected, through a connection established with a smart device.
The device is easy to install and comes without wires, meaning you won't have to worry about paying someone to install it professionally. When it comes to enhancing your home security, it really doesn't get much easier than that.
