Setting Ring Alarm Entry and Exit Delays

The Exit Delay setting gives you a short period of time to leave your home once you’ve armed Ring Alarm. You’ll hear a series of chirps to remind you that there are only a few seconds to exit your home and close the door. When your Exit Delay ends, your Alarm is in Armed Mode. Opening your door will trigger the Entry Delay to begin counting down.

Entry Delay gives you a short time to disarm your Ring Alarm when entering your home. You’ll hear reminder chirps during the delay, and when the delay ends, if you don’t disarm, your Ring Alarm siren will sound.

To use Entry and Exit Delays, set the Contact Sensor Placement setting to Main Door. Next, customize each delay for any time between 0 seconds (no delay) and 180 seconds (3 minutes). Just make sure you have enough time to arm and disarm your Alarm.

To configure your exit delay: 

  • Tap the three-lined menu icon on the upper left-hand side of your screen.
  • Tap Location Settings.
  • Tap Modes.
  • Tap "Home" or "Away."
  • Tap "Exit Delay."
  • Set the exit delay for the amount of time you wish.
