Take a tour of the Ring App

Your Ring app is the command center for all of your Ring devices. Take some time to learn all about the Ring app and what its functions are.

Sign up for a Ring Protect Plan

Ring Protect is an optional subscription with three tiers, which allows video recordings from your Ring devices to be saved in your Ring account, along with many other features. Without Ring Protect, you access Live View on your doorbells and cameras and answer doorbell notifications when they happen, but you do not get video recordings of those events.

Set Up your Users and Roles

Once you've completed setting up your Ring device in your app, you can decide who has access to your system. Certain people need total control over the system while others only need to be able to perform a few simple functions. The homeowner, for example, needs to be able to configure every aspect of their devices. A neighbor who checks the house cameras while the family is on vacation needs very limited access. Fortunately there is a system in place to deal with this situation: Users and Roles.
