Linked Devices - Automatically Record on Cameras when Alarm is Triggered

When your Ring Alarm is triggered, every second counts and there’s no guarantee that an intruder will be in front of a camera when the time comes. 

That’s why you can set any Ring device with a camera to start recording the instant your Alarm is set off. To set up your Ring Camera devices to begin recording When your alarm is triggered, simply follow these instructions.

Setting up linked devices to start recording at an alarm. 

  • Open your Ring App.
  • Open the side menu by tapping the three-lined icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.
  • Tap Devices.
  • Tap Base Station.
  • Tap Base Station
  • Tap Linked Devices.
  • Tap Add Linked Devices.
  • On the “Add Linked Devices” page, tap the devices you wish to begin recording video when an alarm goes off or begins entry delay.

Note: Live View must be enabled in order to set a device for simultaneous recording. Turning Live View off on a device will supersede an order for the simultaneous record.
