Features coming to Ring Protect Basic
As a Ring Protect Basic subscriber, you’ll have access to these improved features.
Extended Video Storage Time1
For Ring videos recorded after July 1, you have the option to increase how long they are stored in the cloud, up to 180 days. Previously, the video storage limit was 60 days. Changing your video storage time only affects videos that are recorded after you adjusted your storage time setting. For videos recorded before you changed the setting, it will retain the previous setting.
To modify your video storage time, log in to your Ring account and go to Control Center. Learn more about Video Storage Time.
Download More Videos at Once
You have the option to download up to 50 Ring videos at once when logged in to your account at Ring.com. Learn how to share and download your Ring videos.
Ring Protect Basic subscribers also get a 10% discount on select device purchases at Ring.com and Amazon.com, a benefit that was previously only available for Protect Plus and Protect Pro subscriptions. Terms and conditions apply.
