Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro?

Arrow Icon

Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro are home security systems to protect any house or apartment. Security kits come with a Base Station, Contact Sensor, Motion Detector, Keypad and Range Extender.

Place Contact Sensors on any door or window in your home, and the Motion Detector in any room of your home, and you’ll get mobile notifications when your door or window is opened or motion is detected. Please note: Ring Alarm and all Ring Alarm accessories requires a subscription for in-app features and digital notifications, including digital arming/disarming. Subscription sold separately. View for pricing and details.

Ring Alarm Pro gives you a Ring Alarm for trusted physical security, and a built-in eero Wi-Fi 6 router for fast wifi and network security in a single system. Unlike traditional home security systems, Ring Alarm Pro also offers optional layers of backup protection to help stay connected in case the power or internet goes out. By combining Alarm Pro with a Ring Protect Pro plan, you have more protection, and more ways to secure your home.

Do I have to purchase the kit? Or can I buy it piece-by-piece?

Arrow Icon

The Ring Alarm Security Kit comes with everything you need to protect your home. The Base Station controls your entire Ring Alarm system and is only available in a kit.

For upgraded protection, Ring Alarm Pro comes in Kits as well. Or, purchase the Alarm Pro Base Station on its own and customize a security system exactly to your home's needs.

Additional Contact Sensors, Motion Detectors, Keypads, Range Extenders and future Ring Alarm components can be purchased separately to expand the coverage of both systems. These will connect with the Base Station at your home to protect your entire property. They both also work with Ring cameras, Ring Video Doorbells, Alexa-enabled Echo devices, and more. Please note: Integration with Ring Alarm requires a subscription (sold separately). Learn more here.

With Ring Alarm pro you can add eero 6 Extenders to expand coverage and Ring Power Packs for additional back up power.

  2. Connect up to four fully-charged Power Packs to a single Alarm Pro to keep it working for hours and all Alarm Pro features will be available.
