Welcome to Ring!
Whether you've just purchased your first Ring product or you're a long-time neighbor, congratulations on adding to the ring of security around your home! The following article covers some basic information that will get you up and running quickly.
First you'll need to set up your new device in the Ring app. If you haven't yet set up your new Ring device in your Ring App, click on the device name below for setup instructions.
Next check out some of the other functions of the Ring app.
Take a tour of the Ring App
Your Ring app is a powerful piece of software and 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 Ring Protect Plus
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 Protect system and be able to save up to 60 days of 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.
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.
