How to arm and disarm Ring Alarm with mode schedules

Mode schedules allow you to create a schedule to change the mode of your Ring Alarm system.

For example, if you routinely arm your system at night, you may want to create a schedule that will automatically switch your Ring Alarm to Home Mode every night at 10pm. If you put your system in Home Mode every night but have a different evening routine on the weekend, you can set up a second schedule just for weekends to accommodate your lifestyle.

The benefit is you do not need to remember arming the system before going to bed, reducing the chance that you forget.

Note: Modes schedules require a Ring Alarm system
You can only use mode schedules if you have a Ring Alarm system. You must be a Ring account owner to create and delete Mode Schedules.

How to create a new mode schedule for Ring Alarm:

  1. Open the Ring app and tap Menu.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Mode Schedules.
  4. Tap Add Schedule.
  5. Enter the name for the schedule, and select the specific mode and time for the schedule.
  6. Select the day(s) of the week you’d like to apply this schedule.
  7. Tap Add Schedule.

You’ll be taken to the mode schedule overview screen that displays all schedules for your Ring Alarm.

How to delete a mode schedule for Ring Alarm:

  1. Open the Ring app and tap Menu.
  2. Tap Settings.
  3. Tap Mode Schedules.
  4. Select the schedule you want to delete.
  5. Select Remove this Schedule.

If you have a schedule conflict, the app will display an error informing you of an issue. You should resolve this conflict immediately. You can update the time, day or mode of the schedule in conflict to resolve the issue. Additionally, you can turn off the schedule completely by using the toggle in the upper right corner of the card.

Please note when arming the Alarm system by a schedule, all faulted sensors will be automatically bypassed.
