How to Reboot your Ring Doorbell or Security Camera from the Ring App

If your Ring doorbell or security camera is not working properly, you can try rebooting the device in the Ring app. You will not lose any information in your Ring account using this process. However, your device must be online (connected to wifi, battery charged and/or wired properly) in order for the "Reboot This Device"  feature to work.

Tip: If your Ring doorbell or camera is recording pink video or seems to be stuck on night vision, rebooting your online device in the Ring app using the Reboot feature may help.
