    Hello,

    I'm new to the forum and seeking some advice please.

    I am considering buying a Ring Floodlight Camera (link below), but don't have an existing external light fixture/power.

    To get this set-up, would it be as simple as connecting the light fixture wiring to an extension cable, with a standard plug on the end? I'm planning to drill a hole through the wall to to the outside of the property, feed the wire through and plug internally (ensuring there is a good seal around the wiring entering the property).

    The reviews/instructions that I have found seem to suggest requiring a junction box, but those are U.S installs so not sure if that is still required...

    Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Yes you could fit a plug and use a socket outlet but a better way would be to feed it from a fused spur off of a lighting or socket circuit.

    Hi
    Im doing the same with the Ring flood light, im taking off a spur from a socket, im going to add a switch fuse so i can over it if needed, im thinking the fuse should be a 5amp, is this correct? thanks in advance.

    3 or 5 amp will be ok.
