Real stories with Protect.

“After a break-in, I was able to take clips from the Ring videos to email the district attorney, and he recommended the burglar not be granted bail.”

Reno, NV

“If Ring didn’t call and if I didn’t sign up for Protect, I really think that I could have died. Within minutes, the fire engines came in and all of their carbon monoxide units were going off.”

Durham, CT

“My daughter decided to go outside without telling my wife. When I got home from work I looked at the video, and my wife and I were in shock. Anything could have happened to her and I am very happy that we were able to find this out.”

Hernandez Family
Gardner, KS

"Three people went around our neighborhood and tried to get into several houses and broke into several people’s cars. We sent the video to the police and they are using it as evidence in charging the suspects.”

Frequently Asked Questions.

Am I eligible for a Ring Protect Plan? Arrow Icon

After you set up your Ring device (camera, doorbell or Alarm) then you are eligible to purchase a Ring Protect Plan. Before you set up a device you can review what plan would work best for you. A trial of Ring Protect starts immediately when your device is set up. This way you can use the benefits while you decide what plan is best for you. For Protect Plus, all devices at a location for one user account are covered.

I am having trouble subscribing? What do I do? Arrow Icon

We are here to help! First make sure you have set up a device at your location. If you were not the person that set up the device and you are a shared user on the account, please ask the device owner to login to their account on Ring.com to subscribe.

Is a Ring Protect Plan required to use my Ring products? Arrow Icon

No. Your Ring products provide their standard features (instant alerts, Live View, Two-Way Talk, and so on) without any subscription. Ring Protect Plans simply offer additional features for those who want them.

Can I try Ring Protect before I subscribe? Arrow Icon

Yes. A 30-day trial of Ring Protect Plus begins when you first set up your Ring Doorbell, Camera, or Alarm. Some retailers may offer special promotions with different trial periods.

What happens when I add a new Ring device? Arrow Icon

With Ring Protect Plus, all Ring devices at one address are covered automatically. If you’re currently using Ring Protect Basic and want your new device covered, you can add another Basic subscription, or upgrade to Ring Protect Plus.

I have a Ring Alarm system. Which Ring Protect Plan is best for me? Arrow Icon

We recommend subscribing to Ring Protect Plus, as it provides professional monitoring for your Ring Alarm system.

I have Ring products at more than one address. Does one Ring Protect Plus subscription cover them all? Arrow Icon

How does 24/7 professional monitoring work? Arrow Icon

When you subscribe to Ring Protect Plus and enroll in professional monitoring, our team will be alerted when your Ring Alarm detects a security issue. We’ll give you a call from a dedicated support line to see if you need an emergency response. If you give the go-ahead or can’t answer, the team will dispatch emergency responders like the police department, fire department, or emergency medical services*. With professional monitoring, you can also immediately request these emergency services from your Ring Alarm Keypad or Panic Button. 24/7 professional monitoring is only available for Ring Alarm and select third party “Works with Ring”-certified devices; other Ring devices, such as Video Doorbells and Security Cameras, are not professionally monitored.
*In jurisdictions requiring alarm verification, Guard Response or other verification is required before emergency responders will be dispatched. Learn more here.
