At Ring we are always working to bring more integrations for you to use with your devices. The Alexa Guard and Alexa Guard Plus features are a great way to get even more from your Ring Alarm and supported Amazon Echo Devices including Echo Show, Echo Dot, Echo Plus, and Echo.
Alexa Guard is a free feature that can detect the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, or glass breaking, when you set Guard to Away mode. If you have the Ring Alarm you can also use it to arm your system when you set Alexa Guard to Away mode. Learn more, here.
Alexa Guard Plus is a subscription service that includes all the Alexa Guard features with additional detection, deterrence, and assistance capabilities. Such as, detecting activity sounds like footsteps or doors closing when you set Guard to Away mode. Even better, the Alexa Guard Plus subscription is free if you already have the Ring Protect Plus Plan and are based in the US, all you need to do is link your Ring and Amazon accounts and complete Guard Plus setup in the Alexa app. Learn more, here.
Learn more about these features and how to connect them in this Ring Help Center article.
Note: Alexa Guard Plus is currently only available in the United States. We will make sure to update here if this changes.
