    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Ring Protect? Arrow Icon

    Ring Protect is a comprehensive subscription service that unlocks photo capture, video recording, saving, sharing and more for Video Doorbells and Security Cameras. For Alarm owners a Protect Plus subscription activates Assisted Monitoring and Cellular Back Up, plus a few extra perks. A Ring Protect subscription allows you to link all of your Ring devices and set them to all start recording the moment one of your devices detects motion. There are two tiers of Ring Protect: Basic and Plus.

    Do I need a Ring Protect subscription to use Ring Devices and their features? Arrow Icon

    No. You can use features including HD Live View, Two-Way Talk and Motion Alerts without a Ring Protect subscription.

    Which features are included with a Ring Protect subscription? Arrow Icon

    A Ring Protect subscription unlocks Video Recording, Saving and Sharing for Video Doorbells and Security Cameras, plus features like Person Alerts and Package Alerts. If you have multiple Ring devices, a Protect Plus subscription allows you to link all your Ring devices together and unlocks Assisted Monitoring and Cellular Backup for your Ring Alarm. HD Live View, Two-Way Talk and Motion Alerts are all available out-of-the-box, without a Ring Protect subscription.

    What’s the difference between Ring Protect Basic and Ring Protect Plus? Arrow Icon

    Ring Protect Basic covers one Ring Video Doorbell or Security Camera for only $3.99/month or $39.99/year. It records all the videos captured by your Ring device and saves them to your account. You can then review all your videos at your convenience, download to save them for later and share them with friends, family and neighbours.

    Ring Protect Plus covers all Ring Video Doorbells and Security Cameras at a single location for only $10/month or $100/year. It records all the videos captured by your Ring doorbell and/or cam and saves them to your account. You can then review your videos at your convenience, download those you want to save them for later or, if you so choose, share them with your friends, family and neighbours. If you have a Ring Alarm, with Protect Plus you can opt in to Assisted Monitoring, receive automated calls when your Ring Alarm detects a security issue. You’ll also get extended warranties for every eligible device for as long as your Protect Plus plan is in place.

    What is the difference between Package Alerts & Persons Alerts? Arrow Icon

    The Persons Alerts feature only sends an alert when it detects a person, so you won't keep getting notified each time your pet passes by. Available with Ring Video Doorbells, the Package Alerts feature sends you an alert when a package is detected in the designated area on your doorstep.

    How do I link my Ring devices? Arrow Icon

    Your Ring devices can all be linked in the Ring app, where you can customise the settings and set them all to start recording the moment motion is detected. So if your Video Doorbell detects motion at your doorstep or your Alarm senses an open window, your Spotlight Cam, Floodlight Cam or Indoor Cam will automatically start recording too.

    Can I share my videos and photos with others? Arrow Icon

    If you have a subscription to Ring Protect, you can choose share your videos and photos with anyone, including neighbours, friends, family and local police. Every Video Doorbell, Security Camera and Alarm Pack comes with a free 30-day trial of Ring Protect. You can choose to subscribe to Ring Protect at any time to save, review and share all videos and photos captured by your Video Doorbell or Security Cameras and you won’t be charged until the end of your free trial.
