Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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 motion detected.
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.
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.
