Introducing the Spotlight Pro

Feb 07, 2023|

It’s no secret that a well-lit home increases your home’s security and aesthetic appeal. But can your outdoor lighting actually deter crime?

It can with the Spotlight Pro. The Spotlight Pro is the only smart security spotlight on the market that intelligently prevents crime from occurring. Read on to find out how it works and how it can make your home safer and more secure.


What is the Spotlight Pro?

The Spotlight Pro is an outdoor LED spotlight that works with Vivint’s outdoor home security camera—the Outdoor Camera Pro (Gen 2) to accurately identify people on your property and deter them from lingering.

Unlike traditional motion-detection floodlights, the Spotlight Pro does more than just turn on when something appears in its field of view—it uses the intelligence of the Outdoor Camera Pro to spot, track, and deter lurkers on your property.

Like the Outdoor Camera Pro, the Spotlight Pro is equipped with Smart Deter technology, which uses a computer vision chip and motion sensors to identify people lurking in your defined motion zones. Once a lurker is identified, Spotlight Pro immediately spotlights them, tracking their every move. If the person lingers too long, the Spotlight Pro’s strobe effect is activated.

In addition to intelligently deterring crime, the Spotlight Pro also serves as a traditional floodlight, providing security lighting for your home that you can conveniently control from your phone with the Vivint App.

Why you need the Spotlight Pro

The Spotlight Pro elevates your home security, working together with the Outdoor Camera Pro to provide some of the most advanced monitoring features available in any surveillance camera system. With the Spotlight Pro, you can:

  • Detect, track, and illuminate people. The Spotlight Pro uses a computer vision chip to identify people (not animals or passing cars) on your property. It then uses its spotlight to track them. If they lurk on your property too long, the deter light illuminates them and encourages them to move along.
  • Send unwanted people with running Smart Deter. If you already have a Vivint camera with Smart Deter, like the Outdoor Camera Pro or the video doorbell, then you know how cool this feature is. Smart Deter lets people know they’ve been spotted by playing a loud tone and illuminating the LED ring around the camera’s lens. On the Spotlight Pro, Smart Deter goes a step further with lighting effects that include strobe, sweep, and circular patterns.
  • Light the way. A dark driveway can be dangerous to your family and your visitors. Spotlight Pro will tastefully light the path to your home, providing a safer and more visible path whether you’re coming or going.
  • Know when people are on your property, and communicate with them. You’ll also receive notifications and motion alerts on your phone whenever the Spotlight Pro spots someone on your property. And because it identifies people, not just motion events, you won’t get notified every time a car passes or a pet wonders into your yard. The Spotlight Pro includes two-way audio and two-way talk, so you can get a live view of them and speak to them via your Vivint App.
  • Improve the detail of your Outdoor Camera Pro. The Spotlight Pro works with the Outdoor Camera Pro (Gen 2), which already features night vision and 1080p-HD video feeds. When the Spotlight Pro’s lights are on, it provides even greater detail through your camera feed, so you’ll have color night vision and clearer, brighter video quality.
  • Customize your lighting settings. You can customize various settings of your Spotlight Pro right from your app, including brightness, deter countdown, which of the 9 LED light zones to light up, and which deter lighting behavior is used. And if you’re worried the spotlight will disturb the neighbors, you can disable certain lights so they don’t light up the neighbor’s property.
  • See clearly day or night, rain or shine. The Spotlight Pro features weather-resistant housing, so it works even in inclement weather.

The Spotlight Pro in action

So how would the Spotlight Pro help you in your home? Take a look at a few real-life scenarios:

Send thieves running

The average burglar or car thief has one goal—to get in and out as quickly as possible without being seen. The Spotlight Pro makes it impossible for a would-be thief to go undetected. Not only that, but once activated, it lets the thief—and you—know they’ve been spotted.

Let’s say your car is parked in the driveway one evening. A burglar approaches to check if the door handles are unlocked. Because the car is in your Spotlight Pro’s pre-defined field of view, it recognizes the lurker and shines a light on them, letting them know they’ve been seen. The burglar tries to duck out of sight, but the Spotlight Pro tracks him and activates Smart Deter on both the Spotlight and the Outdoor Camera Pro, playing a tone and lighting the LED ring around the camera. Finally, the Spotlight Pro begins to strobe, and the thief takes off running.

You’ll also receive a notification on your phone, so you can see what’s happening in real-time. The recorded footage can also be given to local law enforcement.

Automatically illuminate your walkway

Spotlight Pro also keeps the people who are coming and going safe when it’s dark out, dynamically lighting up your walkway when needed. They’ll be able to see clearly and avoid anything that might be blocking the way. You can even use the two-way talk feature to warn them of an icy walkway.

Keep the fun going after dark

Don’t let the setting sun put an end to your outdoor fun. The Spotlight Pro can also be used to light your basketball court, driveway, back patio, or any outdoor area within its field of view. Using the manual lighting control in the Vivint app, you can choose where to shine a light outside, and adjust the brightness as needed.

Compatibility with the Spotlight Pro

The Spotlight Pro is designed to work with the 2nd Gen Outdoor Camera Pro, so you’ll need a Vivint smart home security system and the latest version of the outdoor security camera in order to use it.

Unlike battery-powered cameras and floodlights, the Spotlight Pro is a wall-mount, hardwired camera, so you don’t have to worry about battery life or swapping out rechargeable batteries like you would with other floodlight cameras.

If you’re worried about wires showing or having to DIY your Spotlight Pro, don’t be—all Vivint systems include professional installation, so you can rest easy knowing your Spotlight Pro will be installed correctly and tested to ensure it works as it should. It will also look wire-free, providing a seamless look for your home’s exterior.

The Spotlight Pro also integrates with other systems within your smart home. You can activate the spotlight when a door is left open, an alarm is triggered, or when the garage door is open, providing more light and detail.
