Setting up Your Wall Light Solar in the Ring App

Setting up your Wall Light Solar in the Ring app is simple.

Before you begin

  • If there is an update available for the Ring app, please update it before you begin. Remind any shared users to update their app too. Updating the app ensures that everyone on your account will be able to see this new device.
  • Be sure to install and set up your Bridge before installing and setting up your Wall Lights. You will need to have a Ring Bridge installed and set up in order to connect your Wall Lights to the Ring app and the rest of your Ring devices.
