Setting Up Your Stick Up Cam Wired in your Ring App

 

Setting up your Ring Stick Up Cam Wired in the Ring app is a simple process. The rest of this article will walk you through the process step-by-step. 

Before you begin your app setup, be sure your Stick Up Cam is powered up. You can power Stick Up Cam in one of two ways: Plug it into an outlet (with USB), or plug it into an Ethernet port that supplied Power over Ethernet (PoE).

Using PoE requires a special type of Ethernet switch or a dedicated PoE power supply. If your Ethernet system does not supply PoE, USB is the easier choice.

 

Step One - Download the Ring App

 

To download the Ring App:

  • On your mobile device, go to the App Store (for iOS devices) or Google Play (for Android devices).
  • Do a search for “Ring.”
  • Download and install the Ring app on your mobile device.
Step Two - Create or Log in to Your Account

 

If this is your first Ring product, You will be asked to set up an account. To set up an account:

  • Open the Ring App.
  • Select Set Up an Account.
  • Follow the in-app instructions to create a new account.

If you already have another Ring product installed, simply open the app and select “Set up Device.”  

Step Three - Specify your Location

 

In the next step, if this is your first time setting up a Ring product, you will get a request from your phone informing you that the Ring App wishes to use your phone’s location services to pinpoint your location. Allowing the app to do so will assist in inputting your address.

Enter your address information into the app, then confirm it.

Note: Without a specific location, certain features of your Stick Up Cam will not work properly.

Step Four - Name your Stick Up Cam

 

In the next step you will have the opportunity to give your device a specific name. This will allow you to distinguish between it and any other Ring devices you may have.

Step Five - App Pairing

 

For the next step, your phone or tablet will need to connect to the Wi-Fi network called “Ring-.”

If you’re on an Android device, this step should happen automatically. 

On an iPhone or iPad, follow the instructions below:

  • Press the Home button on your iPhone or iPad to leave the Ring app.
  • Navigate to the “Settings” app.
  • Tap "Wi-Fi."  
  • Select the network from the list that begins with “Ring-.”
  • Close your Settings App and return to the Ring App.
  • When you return to the Ring app, the app will automatically scan for available Wi-Fi networks. Select the network closest to your Stick Up Cam to connect it.
Step Six - Connect Your Stick Up Cam to Your Wi-Fi 

 

The next step in the setup process will ask you to connect your Stick Up Cam to your Wi-Fi network. Be sure you're near your router and have your Wi-Fi password ready. If you have more than one Wi-Fi network, select the one closest to where you will be installing your Ring Stick Up Cam. 

Note: Following this step, your Stick Up Cam may update its internal software. While performing an update, the light will flash. Note that while the update is taking place, and the light is flashing, your Stick Up Cam will not work. Wait until it completes before proceeding to the next step.

Step Seven - Run a Test Through Your Stick Up Cam

 

Once your Stick Up Cam has completed its update and setup, set up your camera’s motion zones, then open up your Live View to test your camera.
