Hiccups with the Bridge settings. After the problem was solved, everything works well.

I have a ring doorbell pro, so I really wanted to try Ring smart lighting. Just recently I ordered this bridge and 2 spotlights kit. Right off the bat I felt this was odd because the products came from Alberta. I live in Southern Ontario and Amazon usually ships products neaby. Another thing is that all these 3 products were in French. Didn't really make sense.
I opened the bridge first to connect with Ring app on my phone. That didn't even work. I checked my phone settings, unplugged/plugged the bridge, checked my wifi modem... nothing worked. the process always gets stuck at "Connecting to your Ring Bridge", even though my phone was connected to the bridge wifi. So I cannot proceed to get the bridge access to my internet wifi.
Setup is supposed to be super easy..
Even though Google play did not indicate that my Ring app had an update, I Uninstalled and re-installed the app, and that solved the wifi connection problem.
After that, I was able to setup Ring spotlights with the bridge and my doorbell.
