What Ports Do I Need to Open in My Firewall for Ring Doorbells and Chimes?

If you are faced with a black screen when viewing video and live events in the Ring app, the problem may be related to port settings on your router. In business environments and certain home environments, incorrect port settings can cause device setup to fail as well. 

Internet-connected devices, such as Ring products, communicate with the internet by sending information through ports. Ports are designated openings between an internal home or business network and the outside internet. Each internet service sends data through specific ports. For example, Port 80 is used for website traffic. 

Ring uses the following ports:

Battery devices:
TCP in 32882 - 65533
TCP out 80, 443, 5223, 9998
UDP in 53, 67, 68, 123, 137, 15063 - 65439
UDP out 53, 67, 68, 123, 5353, 15063 - 64208

Powered devices:
UDP in 53, 67, 137 & 8610 - 61000
UDP out 53, 68, 123 & 5001 - 64854
TCP in 32768 - 61000
TCP out 80, 443, 5201, 9999, 15063

Ports can be “opened” or “closed” on your router’s firewall. Open ports allow devices to send information through them, while closed ports block all traffic.  Ring products only function properly if the required ports are open outbound from your router. The process to open ports can be different, depending on your type of router. Consult your router’s user manual for instructions on how to open ports.

Ring Chime also requires certain ports. If your Chime is not ringing, ensure that the following ports are accessible as well:

Chime Pro:
TCP in 32773 - 60998
TCP out 443, 9999
UDP in 123, 32776 - 60989
UDP out 53, 123, 14440

Chime:
TCP in 50157 - 65168
TCP out 80, 443, 9998
UDP in 68, 50534 - 62946
UDP out 53, 123, 5353

The client applications also use the following ports:

TCP In 59720 - 59840
TCP out 80, 443, 5223, 15064
UDP in 68, 123, 49400 - 64951
UDP out 53, 123, 18306 - 63919
