Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro Security Kit? Arrow Icon

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

Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro are simple enough to install without any tools or professional installation. Simply place the Contact Sensor on any door or window in your home, and you’ll get a mobile notification when it opens. You can also place the Motion Detector in any room of your home, and you’ll get a notification when motion is detected.

Ring Alarm Pro gives you a Ring Alarm for trusted physical security, and an 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.

Ring Alarm Pro Base Station is sold separately, so you can customize your entire home security system.

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.

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

What’s the difference between Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro? Arrow Icon

Ring Alarm Pro gives you the trusted security and customizable features of Ring Alarm plus an eero Wi-Fi 6 router built in for network security and fast, reliable internet. The Ring Protect Pro Plan also offers 24/7 Backup Internet that is only available for use with a Ring Alarm Pro Base Station, giving you cellular internet connectivity when there’s no internet access available.

Does Ring offer professional monitoring and how much does it cost? Arrow Icon

Yes, you can enroll in 24-7 professional monitoring with fire and medical emergency support for $20 / month / location with the Ring Protect Pro Plan.

Do I need Ring Protect Pro to get Professional Monitoring? Arrow Icon

Yes. Professional monitoring for Ring Alarm systems is only available with a Ring Protect Pro plan. Ring Protect Pro is not available in Canada. Canadian customers, learn more about your Protect Plans here.

How do I control Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro? Arrow Icon

You can easily arm and disarm your system with the free Ring App (compatible with iOS and Android phones and tablets). You can also use the Keypad if you’re indoors and not near your phone or tablet. Ring Alarm provides three Security Modes to control your smart home security system:

  • Away mode arms all of your Contact Sensors and Motion Sensors, by default.
  • Disarmed mode disarms your security devices so you can come and go.
  • Home mode arms Contact Sensors around the perimeter of your home, by default.

For Ring Alarm Pro, while you can control your wireless security system from the Ring App, to control and manage your wifi, you do so from the eero app.

What happens if the power goes out? Arrow Icon

Ring Alarm comes with a 24-hour backup battery that kicks in whenever the power at home goes out. You can also get cellular backup with a Ring Protect Pro Plan, giving you essential security features to help protect your home during an outage.

With Ring Alarm Pro, when the power goes out you have two options:

  • 1. Alarm Pro has an internal backup battery inside the Base Station that can provide backup power. When using the internal battery, you may have limited access to Alarm features only.
  • 2. Ring Power Packs (sold separately) can provide external battery backup for your Alarm Pro. 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.

Ring Power Packs can also be used to provide backup power to your eero 6 Extenders, which will keep your expanded wifi network up if you lose power.

What happens when the internet goes out with Ring Alarm Pro? Arrow Icon

Your Ring Protect Pro plan offers 24/7 Backup Internet when you need it. This means that if the internet goes out, or if you don’t have internet service, you can use cellular data to connect all devices on your wifi network to the internet.

The 24/7 Backup Internet* feature included with the Ring Protect Pro plan gives you 3GB of data every month. If you need more, you can opt in to Extra Data, and you’ll only pay for data you use. We recommend opting in to Extra Data if you’re using Alarm Pro at a location without an internet connection.

Note: If you don’t opt in to Extra Data and use up your 3GB for the month, Alarm Pro will switch to Alarm Cellular Backup which provides access to only critical Ring Alarm security features. When an internet connection is restored, Alarm Pro will automatically switch back to using it. Your 3GB will reset on the first day of the new billing cycle.

Does Ring Alarm and Ring Alarm Pro offer professional monitoring for commercial businesses? Arrow Icon

Yes! Professional monitoring is available for commercial businesses. Learn more about our business security offerings, including professional monitoring at ring.com/business.

Is professional monitoring available in my area? Arrow Icon

Ring Alarm 24/7 monitoring service is available only within the U.S. (all 50 states, but not U.S. territories) and in Canada (excluding Quebec). Canadian customers, learn more about your Protect Plans here.
In some areas, a permit is required in order to have a professionally-monitored alarm system. If you do need a permit, we’ll email you with all the details and can help answer any questions you may have.

Can I try professional monitoring before I subscribe? Arrow Icon

Yes. Every new Ring Alarm comes with a free1 30-day trial of Ring Protect. If you enroll in to professional monitoring during your trial, you can arm and disarm your Ring Alarm to get 24/7 emergency response if you need it most, and enjoy the other benefits of Ring Protect Pro. For the first 7 days of professional monitoring, you can take advantage of our 7-Day Practice Period designed to help you learn the ins and out of your Ring Alarm and avoid false alarms. Before your trial is over, we’ll remind you to subscribe to Ring Protect Pro on Ring.com to keep your alarm professionally monitored.

1 Free trial is not applicable for locations with an existing Ring Protect Plus or Protect Pro subscription. Terms and limitations apply. See Ring Protect Subscription Plans for more information.

Will my existing eero products work with Alarm Pro? Arrow Icon

Yes. All generations of eero products will work as wifi extenders for your Ring Alarm Pro, but we recommend eero 6 Mesh Wifi Extenders, which are compatible with Ring Power Packs.

Set up Ring Alarm Pro as your primary internet router or “gateway” (meaning it should be plugged directly into your modem), and then set up your existing eero devices as wifi extenders using the eero app.

Note: We do not recommend using Ring Alarm Pro as a wifi extender for your existing router. Using your Alarm Pro as an extender will prevent you from accessing many of the Protect Pro subscription features, including 24/7 Backup Internet.

How do I upgrade my Ring Alarm to Ring Alarm Pro? Arrow Icon

We’ve made this step easy. Simply open the Ring app, begin to set up your Ring Alarm Pro, and choose the location which has the Ring Alarm Base Station that you’d like to replace. The app will help you save your Ring Alarm settings and devices, then restore them to your new Alarm Pro Base Station after it’s set up on your Ring account.

Does Ring have a glass break sensor? Arrow Icon

Ring Alarm pairs with Alexa-enabled devices and can listen for glass breaking with Alexa Guard. Alexa can also listen to existing Smoke/CO detectors for Smoke/CO alarms. If you have professional monitoring with Ring Protect Pro, you can also request emergency response.

Do I need to get a permit? Arrow Icon

If you have signed up for 24/7 professional monitoring, you may need a permit to dispatch emergency services. After signing up for Ring Protect Pro, you’ll get an email from our dedicated Permits Team so you can have everything you need to apply for your permit. In some cases, our team will handle the entire permitting process, but for others, we’ll walk you through every step to help you get your permit as quickly as possible.

Does Ring have special programs for HOAs and communities? Arrow Icon

Yes, we offer a number of customizable options and promotions to help keep communities safe. Please visit our community programs page to learn more.

What is Ring Edge and how does it work? Arrow Icon

Ring Edge gives you local video storage and processing for select Ring Security Cameras and Doorbells. With Ring Edge, you can locally process Smart Alerts and store videos using Ring Alarm Pro and a microSD card. You can also watch your saved videos via the Ring App. To use Ring Edge, you’ll need a Ring Alarm Pro and a Ring Protect subscription. Additionally, a microSD card is required for Local Video Storage. All sold separately.
