Frequently Asked Questions

How is Car Cam powered? Arrow Icon

Ring Car Cam connects to your vehicle’s OBD-II port and is powered by the car’s battery. Car Cam has a power management system which will turn itself off in advance of ever depleting the car's battery. For safety, only use Car Cam in vehicles where the OBD-II port is located to the left of the driver’s side dash. You can confirm your car's OBD-II port location here. For help locating your car’s OBD-II port, please check your vehicle’s owner’s manual.

Does Car Cam work when the car is turned off? Arrow Icon

Ring Car Cam remains vigilant while the car is parked, or off, and can continue to help keep your car secure to work in a low-power mode. Car Cam will "wake up" to record triggered events like disturbance detected.

Will Car Cam drain my car battery? Arrow Icon

Ring Car Cam goes into a low-power mode when the vehicle is parked to draw even less power from the battery between uses. Although the device will monitor your car’s battery level and shut down when needed to help preserve the car battery, you should make sure your battery is healthy or else you will not be able to use the device.

Will I still be notified about activity in or around my car when Car Cam is not connected to my home wifi? Arrow Icon

A Ring Protect Go subscription is required to stay notified about and check in on your your car when it’s on the go. Otherwise, if events occur while your car is away from your home wifi, your notifications will be queued up and delivered to you once Car Cam re-connects to your home wifi. See here for more information on Ring Protect Go subscriptions.

Does Car Cam save my videos so I can view them later? Arrow Icon

Car Cam can save videos locally to the device, which can be played back in the Ring App. To download or share these videos, or store video highlights in the cloud to access anytime up to 180 days, subscription to Ring Protect Go is required, sold separately.

What privacy features are included with Car Cam? Arrow Icon

For privacy inside the car, at any time, flip up the built-in Privacy Cover to turn off the mic and block the cabin-facing camera.

You can also disable location sharing at any time through the Ring App.

How does Traffic Stop work? Arrow Icon

To record a crucial moment with Traffic Stop, say “Alexa, record”, and your Ring Car Cam will capture the scene for up to 20 minutes, even if you are parked with the car turned off. Additionally, with a Protect Go subscription, the beginning of the event will also be uploaded to the cloud.

Can I set a different home wifi for Car Cam than my other Ring devices? Arrow Icon

Yes! Ring Car Cam wifi does not have to be on the same network as other Ring devices, but is limited to only one wifi network at a time. Wifi settings can be changed in the Ring App.

If I have an existing Ring Protect Plus or Pro subscription, do I still need to subscribe to Ring Protect Go? Arrow Icon

Yes, Ring Protect Go is the only subscription plan that supports Ring Car Cam.

1Viewing resolution may vary depending on connectivity, viewing device, and viewing format. See Video Tech Specs for details.

2A Ring Protect Go subscription, sold separately, is required to use Live View, Two-Way Talk, Real-Time Notifications, and GPS Locator over LTE when the Car Cam is away from home wifi, and to use the Cloud Highlights (including Cloud Highlights for Traffic Stop).

4Service includes 2GB of LTE data per month, extra data charges may apply. LTE data is provided by a third party carrier. Coverage, uptime, technology, and speeds will vary. Visit ring.com/protect-go for more details.
