So I bought a floodlight yesterday from the Homer Despot, as I happened to be looking for another v3 cam and another spotlight/floodlight independently of each other. As it turned out this seems perfect as I can move my old v3/Ring floodlight to new locations/uses.
Here’s my apparent issue, which I wonder if anyone else is having:
- It seems that there is a cooldown/timeout on the floodlight itself after triggering . I went out this evening to calibrate it, and I’m noticing it won’t retrigger after turning off, even if I’m walking right up to it from less than 20 feet up to right underneath it. It seems to take 30-60s to cooldown before the light will turn on again.
A security light that has a significant cooldown (to me >2-3s) is almost useless. I’ve never had this issue from any other “dumb” motion-activated light or any of the Ring lights I have. They all stay on after triggering as long as motion continues or re-trigger immediately after motion resumes.
Am I the only one experiencing this? Is this a design error or a firmware issue?
