Real stories with Protect.

“We feel safer every day, my wife said the intercom feature is one of her favourite things so we always feel connected and home, even when we’re not home. We are customers for life now!”


“I feel that packages are less likely to be stolen, and I have [a] video record for deliveries and pickups for my small business.”


“Recently someone broke into my neighbour’s house... the whole scene was caught on the Ring doorbell camera. [The video] was used as part of evidence to prosecute the burglar. Ring has made my life safe and convenient.”

St. Johns

“The fact that I can be anywhere in the world and have access to see my front yard and answer the doorbell when there is a notification gives me a peace of mind.”

British Columbia

“The Ring video enabled us to share an excellent description of the thief, and RCMP quickly apprehended the suspect in our neighborhood.”

Frequently asked questions.

Am I eligible for a Ring Protect Plan? Arrow Icon

After you set up your Ring device (camera, doorbell or Alarm) then you are eligible to purchase a Ring Protect Plan. Before you set up a device you can review what plan would work best for you. A trial of Ring Protect starts immediately when your device is set up unless you have an existing Ring Protect Plus subscription at your location. This way you can use the benefits while you decide what plan is best for you. For Protect Plus, all devices at a location for one user account are covered.

I am having trouble subscribing. What do I do? Arrow Icon

We are here to help! First make sure you have set up a device at your location. If you were not the person that set up the device and you are a shared user on the account, please ask the device owner to login to their account on Ring.com to subscribe.

Is a Ring Protect Plan required to use my Ring products? Arrow Icon

No. Your Ring products provide their standard features (instant alerts, live view, two-way talk, and so on) without any subscription. Ring Protect Plans simply offer additional features for those who want them.

Can I take my Ring doorbell device when I move? Arrow Icon

Yes, you can take your Ring alarm or doorbell devices when you move. If you decide to move, simply unplug your devices and set them up on your new location. You'll only need to update the address linked to the Ring Alarm and can even keep your same subscription, if you have one.

Can I use a Ring alarm or doorbell even if I’m renting a property? Arrow Icon

Ring is not only for homeowners. There are several benefits for owning a Ring doorbell or alarm if you are renting. For instance, the Ring Peephole Cam (formerly called Door View Cam) replaces a peephole, if you don’t have one. And your landlord will appreciate not drilling into the door or walls, which in many cases is not suitable. Similarly, if the place you are renting is already equipped with a Ring device, you can easily start a subscription and start enjoying some additional benefits.

Can I try Ring Protect before I subscribe? Arrow Icon

Yes. A 30-day trial of Ring Protect Plus begins when you first set up your Ring Doorbell, Camera, or Alarm unless you have an existing Ring Protect Plus subscription at your location. Some retailers may offer special promotions with different trial periods.

What happens when I add a new Ring device? Arrow Icon

With Ring Protect Plus, all Ring devices at one address are covered automatically. If you’re currently using Ring Protect Basic and want your new device covered, you can add another Basic subscription, or upgrade to Ring Protect Plus.

I have a Ring Alarm system. Which Ring Protect Plan is best for me? Arrow Icon

We recommend subscribing to Ring Protect Plus, as it provides assisted monitoring for your Ring Alarm system.

I have Ring products at more than one address. Does one Ring Protect Plus subscription cover them all? Arrow Icon

No. You’ll need to subscribe to a separate Ring Protect Plus plan for each address you want to cover.

Can I use multiple phones or tablets with my Ring products? Arrow Icon

Yes. All of your Ring products can be viewed and monitored via the Ring mobile app on any mobile phone or tablet, and any PC if you log into Ring.com.

Which forms of payment are accepted for Ring Protect Subscriptions? Arrow Icon

Ring only accepts digital credit or debit card payments and any other payment methods offered through our website ring.com. We do not accept any payments in the form of cash, check, or money order. Any such payments sent to our address will be returned to you, and you will be instructed to subscribe and pay for Ring Protect online. Payments that are mailed to Ring may cause a lapse in your Protect Plan coverage. If you do not subscribe and pay for a Protect Plan online within your 30-day trial period, or prior to the expiration of your existing subscription plan, you will lose your stored video recordings and they will not be retrievable.

Is there a free trial for Ring Protect? Arrow Icon

Yes! Your free trial subscription begins as soon as you activate your new Ring product unless you have an existing Ring Protect Plus subscription at your location.

How long do my videos stay in my Ring account? Arrow Icon

Your Ring videos are stored in the cloud for up to 180 days.

How does assisted monitoring work? Arrow Icon

Assisted Monitoring is an optional feature of Ring Alarm that notifies your emergency contacts via an automated call when a security issue is detected. This means you'll always be notified of a security issue detected by your Ring Alarm, regardless of where you are and whether or not your cellphone data is turned on. On top of this, trusted family members, friends or neighbors can respond appropriately in the event of a security issue.
After subscribing to Ring Protect Plus you can set up Assisted Monitoring by agreeing to the service’s terms and conditions, and adding emergency contacts via the Ring app. Assisted Monitoring (and a Ring Protect Plus subscription) requires no long-term commitment, and users can easily opt in or out of the service.

1 Extended coverage warranty applies to Ring devices registered to a single location within their original limited warranty period when you subscribe to Ring Protect Plus. Once the original limited warranty expires, the device will be covered under Ring Protect Plus until you discontinue your subscription. Non-Ring and other third-party devices are not eligible for the extended warranty. If you are a consumer, the limited and extended warranties are provided in addition to, and without prejudice to, your consumer rights. Read more about our warranty: https://shop.ring.com/pages/warranty.

2 Your Ring videos that are stored in the cloud are stored temporarily, e.g., up to 180 days in the U.S. Check Ring Protect Subscription Plans for more information about your plan's retention period. To keep important videos beyond 180 days, download them to your PC or mobile device. You can delete videos from your Ring account at any time. Once deleted, videos cannot be restored.

3 Ring takes recurring photo snapshots throughout the day so you can see what is happening between motion-activated events (videos) in your Event History Timeline. These photos are stored in your account for up to 7 days. To keep important photos beyond 7 days, download them to your PC or mobile device.

4 Additional non-Ring charges may apply in areas that require permits or guard response service for alarm verification.
