Event History Timeline Information

Event History Video Timeline is designed to give you easy access to all of the events recorded by the doorbells or security cameras you own when subscribed to a Ring Protect plan.

Scrolling back and forth through timeline events can give you a better idea of what has happened within a certain range of time.

How Does Event History Timeline Work?

Event History Timeline places icons on a timeline, letting you know when certain events have happened. You can also see a screenshot of the event in your Event History if you have a subscription to a Ring Protect plan. 

Those events can be:

  • Live Views
  • Motion Events
  • Person Detected
  • Answered Rings (doorbells)
  • Missed Rings (doorbells)
  • Linked Device Events

Snapshot Capture is a feature where you can see images that are recorded periodically (if you have a Ring Protect plan). To find out more about Snapshot Capture, click here.    

How to Sort Events in your Event History

To sort your Events in Event History tap the Events tab on the top of the screen in the Ring app. Tap Ring, Motion, Live View, Key Delivery or Linked Devices or Favorites. Then tap Filter Events to sort your events.
