Ring Alarm in Canada
Learn about the Ring Alarm features that are available in Canada.
With the exception of Quebec, Ring Alarm products and related services will be available in every Canadian province and be usable in any town in the country.
When you get a Ring Alarm, you can self-monitor your alarm system, or you can opt-in to professional monitoring¹ that comes with the Ring Protect Pro plan.
Professional monitoring¹ is a service that monitors Ring Alarm for alarm signals, and can notify emergency contacts and request emergency dispatch the authorities. The Ring monitoring center is a team of trained agents in a secure location who monitor all Ring Alarms 24/7.
At this time, professional monitoring is unavailable in Quebec.
Ring Protect plans are optional and can be canceled for any reason. However, Ring Alarm systems without a Ring Protect plan will not have access to certain features including digital arming and disarming, alarm notifications, security automations and modes settings.* To enjoy the full suite of Ring Alarm System features, sign up for the Ring Protect subscription that best fits your home security needs.
*Ring Alarm and all Ring Alarm accessories require a subscription for digital notifications, in-app features, digital arming/disarming, and integration with other Ring, Echo, and third party products. Subscription sold separately. View ring.com/protect-plans for pricing and details.
Licenses and permits
The laws concerning necessary permits or licenses vary from province to province and town to town. The best way to learn about the permit or license requirements in your area is to reach out to your local law enforcement or municipal government.

Professional monitoring service is available only within the U.S. (all 50 states, but not U.S. territories) and in Canada (excluding Quebec). Ring does not own its own professional monitoring center.
