About the Ring Smart Lighting Solar Steplight
Powered by the sun
Powered by the sun
The one thing I disliked about Ring's compact and helpful Smart Steplights was the need for all those batteries. So I was very excited to see them release a new version with a tiny, built-in solar panel that keeps the built-in battery charged. And if you want to use them in dark spots, without direct sun exposure, that battery can be recharged with the included micro USB cable. That means you can tuck these weather-resistant lights pretty much anywhere you need a little illumination. Each light has a built-in motion sensor, so as you approach your walkway, steps, or porch, it lights your way.
And if you connect it to your Ring ecosystem using the Ring Smart Lighting Bridge (sold separately), it can do more than shine a light. When someone enters the motion zone, it will not only light up the area, but it will also send a notification to your phone to let you know. And if you have it grouped with other lights, it can turn those on, too.
Alexa, turn on the lights
When you connect your Steplight via the Bridge, you can use select Alexa-enabled devices to control your lights using your voice. And Alexa can speak up when one of your lights or motion sensors detects motion.

More details on the Ring Smart Lighting Solar Steplight
Overview: Ring's new Smart Lighting products can light specific areas around the exterior of your home for added safety and security. This solar-powered Steplight can illuminate your stairs, decks, or walkways when motion is detected. The Steplight can turn itself on automatically when it detects motion, in sync with other Ring Smart Lights*, or manually through the Ring App*. The Steplight is powered by solar and a rechargeable battery (included), and can easily be installed into wood or siding. If installing into stucco or brick, you'll need a drill bit and wall anchors (not included). The lights are protected by a 1-year limited warranty.
* Note: The Ring Bridge (sold separately) is required for setup and interacting with other Ring Products or the Ring App.
Ring Bridge: The Ring Bridge integrates Ring Smart Lights, Motion Sensors, and Transformers into your Ring system. The Bridge uses your home Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n, 2.4GHz) to connect to the Ring app. It also connects to other Ring Smart Lights using a proprietary long-range protocol. During setup on the Ring app, you can control groups of lights at once, and receive notifications via the app when any light or motion sensor detects movement. You can also integrate Smart Lights with Ring Doorbells or Security Cameras for enhanced security, and control the lights via voice control with Alexa. A minimum internet upload speed of 1 Mbps is required, but for optimal performance, 2 Mbps or higher is recommended. Up to 50 Ring Smart Lighting devices can be supported by a single Bridge. Without the Bridge, Ring Smart Lights function only as standard motion-sensing lights.
Steplight: The Ring Steplight has an adjustable, high-efficiency LED light that softly illuminates stairways and walkways around your home with 50 lumens of brightness, at a 3500K Color Temperature. The light has an adjustable auto shutoff time of 30 seconds to 2 minutes. In the Ring app, you can adjust the light intensity, and select a Dusk-to-Dawn glow, if desired.
Motion Detection: The Ring Steplight features adjustable motion detection with a field of view of up to 120°. It has a range of up to 15 feet, with the detection angle dependent upon the distance from the unit. If you're installing multiple Steplights, it is recommended that you space them 5 to 7 feet apart for the best motion sensing performance.
Installation: The Steplight is designed to be installed onto wood or siding directly. For masonry installation, a 3/16" drill bit and wall anchors will be needed. No hardwiring is required. Average install time is approximately 5 minutes.
Solar/Rechargeable Battery Powered: The Ring Steplight is powered by solar and a rechargeable battery (included). The battery is recharged by the solar panel on the top of the light. Also, a USB charging cable is included for recharging the battery, if desired.
Weather Resistant: The Steplight is designed to be used outdoors. With its IP66 rating, it is resistant to inclement weather and temperature extremes (-4°F to 122°F).
Ring App: The Ring Bridge lets you control your Smart Lighting devices via the Ring App on your smartphone or tablet. The Ring App lets you turn individual lights on or off, or group lights together and control them as a group (front yard, back yard, etc.). The app also provides instant notification when motion is detected by one or more of your Smart Lights, as well as view a list of recent activity at your home. You can control the brightness, adjust the motion detection sensitivity, and monitor the battery level in each light from the app.
Ask Alexa: Using the Bridge, you can link your Ring Smart Lights to your Alexa-enabled devices to give you control over your lights with your voice. You can turn individual or groups of lights on or off, and adjust settings (brightness, motion detection sensitivity) with your Alexa device. When enabled, Alexa will notify you when motion is detected by any of your Smart Lights.
Security or Convenience: The Ring Bridge can provide enhanced security for your home when added to your Ring security system. With the motion detection abilities of the Smart Lighting devices, the Bridge can link together the lights with your Ring doorbell cameras and security cameras to create a wider reach. You can also program all of your Smart Lights to turn on whenever one detects motion. For convenience, you can link together your Smart Lighting devices to light your path when you come home after dark. When one of the devices detects motion, you can set the system (through the Ring app) to turn on your Steplights, Pathlights, Floodlights, or Spotlights to safely light your way to the door.
