Using Ring Cameras, Lighting, and Video Doorbells at your Business

Ring Video Doorbells, Cameras, and Lighting are designed to give property owners an extra layer of protection by letting them know who’s coming and going. You can use your Ring manuals and any articles in the Ring Help Center to guide you.

You may have a different experience when using these devices at commercial locations rather than at your home, based on the amount of foot traffic in and around your place of business. With increased activity, your cameras and lighting devices may notify you, record or turn on more frequently. 

Depending on the amount of activity, you may experience a shorter-than-average battery life on your battery-powered Ring Video Doorbells, Cameras and Lighting. Here are some tips to help you preserve battery life. 

Note: To avoid shortened battery life and the need to more frequently charge your devices’ batteries, we recommend hardwired devices be used at a business whenever that is possible. 

Ring Video Doorbell 2, Ring Video Doorbell 3 and Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus Battery-Saving Tips

  • Buy an additional removable, rechargeable battery so you can easily replace the battery when you get a “Low Battery” notification, allowing you to charge the low-power and while still keeping your device online. 
  • Change the Motion Frequency setting to capture fewer events, which will lengthen battery life.
  • Adjust the Motion Zones to exclude high traffic areas that you may not want to monitor. For example, you may want to monitor the sidewalk outside your business, but not get alerts or record a video every time a car drives down the street.

  • Change the motion frequency setting to capture fewer events, which will lengthen battery life.
  • Use the scheduling tool to schedule alerts during specific times. For example, schedule these cameras to only detect motion and notify you during closed hours to capture activity after-hours.
