Ring Protect Plan is an optional plan that covers monitoring and video recording services for Ring devices.
With Ring Protect Plus you'll receive 24/7 monitoring for your Ring Alarm system and be able to save Ring videos for a reasonable price. This lets you check out alerts at your convenience even if you miss one and makes sure that your home is always protected.
Note: Currently, Ring Alarm and the professional monitoring service are available only within the U.S. (excluding American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) and Canada (excluding Quebec). If your location is not eligible for Professional monitoring you can still use the Alarm in self-monitoring mode where no Ring Protect Plan is required.
Note: A Ring device is required to use Ring recording services.
