Checking and Updating Your Firmware

Question: What is firmware and why is it important to keep it updated?

Answer: Firmware is a software program embedded into your Ring service that keeps it functioning properly. It is regularly updated by Ring to improve the reliability and functionality of your device. 

Note: Your hardware will usually update its firmware automatically.
