Frequently Asked Questions
The Ring Alarm Security Kit is a DIY home security system that works on any house or apartment. It comes with a Base Station, Contact Sensor, Motion Detector, Keypad and Range Extender.
Ring Alarm is 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.
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 with the 5-Piece, 10-Piece or 14-Piece Security Kits.
Additional Contact Sensors, Motion Detectors, Keypads, Range Extenders and future Ring Alarm components can be purchased separately to expand the coverage of your system. These will connect with the Base Station at your home to protect your entire property.
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 Plus, you can also request emergency response.
You can sign up for 24/7 professional monitoring by purchasing a Ring Protect Plus Plan. Ring Protect Plus also gives you cellular backup, video recording and sharing for unlimited Ring Doorbells and Cameras at your home, extended warranties and exclusive discounts.
All Ring Alarm Security Kits include a free 30-day trial of Ring Protect Plus. After the trial ends, you can opt-in for only $10 a month or $100 a year.
Currently, Ring Alarm and the professional monitoring service are available only within the U.S. (excluding American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) and Canada (excluding Quebec).

You can easily arm and disarm your system with the free Ring App (compatible with iOS and Android devices). 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 system:
- Away activates your entire system.
- Disarmed deactivates your system.
- Home activates select sensors to fit your needs.
If you have signed up for 24/7 professional monitoring, you may need a permit to dispatch emergency services.
