Frequently Asked Questions
While Ring Alarm Pro supports connecting to cameras that implement the ONVIF protocol, ONVIF-compatible cameras are manufactured by many different companies and we have not tested compatibility of Ring Alarm Pro with all of them, so you may experience issues with certain makes and models. Generally, Ring expects to support ONVIF-compatible cameras that:
• Support a video stream of 1080p or lower
• Support H.264 encoding
• Have the ONVIF protocol enabled
• Have a valid password set
At launch, support for ONVIF-compatible cameras in the Ring App will only be available to U.S. customers.
To link an ONVIF-compatible camera in the Ring app, customers first need to have a Ring Alarm Pro and Ring Protect Pro subscription. In the Ring app, the selected cameras can be easily added, giving customers control over their devices, in a single dashboard alongside their Ring devices.
The Ring app will support features for ONVIF-compatible cameras including Live View, real-time notifications, Event History & Timeline and more.
• Live View: Allows customers to check in on camera feeds at any time from anywhere, and view real-time video and audio.
• Real-Time Notifications: Lets customers know what’s happening at a home or business with motion-triggered notifications delivered to a linked mobile device. Enabling People Only Mode creates even more specific motion alerts and helps reduce false motion alerts.
• Event History & Timeline: Gives customers the ability to go back and access motion events recorded by linked ONVIF-compatible cameras, as well as save, download or share for records.
Customers can choose to store video clips from their Ring-connected ONVIF-compatible cameras either in the cloud or on a microSD card inserted into Ring Alarm Pro, just as with Ring cameras.
