Ring for Business - Using Ring to Secure Your Commercial Property

At Ring, our mission is to make neighborhoods safer. Ring for Business offers products and services designed to provide customizable security for businesses.

While you can use the same Ring security products at both home and business locations, how you install, set up, and use these devices may be quite different, depending on the type of business, the size and layout of the property, the number of employees you have and the number of customers who visit each day. 

When it comes to monitoring,* home and business Ring Alarm systems have different security and professional monitoring* requirements. These requirements are based on the zoning regulations for your property. Making the correct choice in the Ring app will help us provide you with the right monitoring services* and allow us to provide accurate alarm permit information. 

If you don’t know if your property is zoned for commercial or residential use, you can request this information from your local municipality.
