Adjust the Video Recording Length on Your Battery Powered Devices

Your Ring app gives you the power to control how long your Ring devices record events you don't answer. By lowering or raising your video recording length you can choose a longer time to see more of each event (but drain batteries faster) or less recording time in order to preserve battery life. 

This article will answer commonly asked questions concerning the video recording length control.
