1. Make sure your SwitchBot App version is up to date.

2. Make sure SwitchBot Outdoor Spotlight Camera has been added to your App and your device firmware version is up to date.

3. Please follow the instructions below to turn on the lights of the Outdoor Spotlight Camera at night when it detects motions.

Open SwitchBot App → Tap "Outdoor Spotlight Camera" → Tap the gear icon on the upper right corner → "Basic Setting"

  • Power Mode =  either "Battery Mode" or "Wired Mode" is OK
  • Night Vision = "Auto"
  • Image Settings = "Color"


1. If you set the camera to "Wired Mode", make sure that the camera is actually being charged via the Type-C cable to the DC adaptor. Otherwise, the battery will drain quickly with the spotlight on in this mode.

2. With the settings above, the spotlight will also turn on when live streaming.

Below is where the Spotlight is installed.
