Event History Timeline Information

Event History is a video timeline that provides easy access to all events recorded1 by your doorbells or cameras with a Ring Protect subscription (sold separately). Event History features icons on a timeline, letting you know when certain events happened. Scrolling back and forth through timeline can give you a better idea of what happened within a range of time.
