I’m very keen to see this feature added. As an interim workaround you could try using an auto clicking third party app. There are a few available for free. I use it to click on the reconnect button every 605 seconds (just over 10 minutes). The picture drops out for a few seconds each time it refreshes but it saves you having to manually press it every 10 mins. Hope this helps.
Anyone from Ring home and care to comment??
I purchased a ring doorbell 3 and an Amazon echo show 8 2nd generation this week primarily to use as a live front door security feed as we have had a few problems which need permanent view £300 approximately and I can’t get it to stay on for more than 60 seconds. After reading this is an ongoing issue I will be sending them both back to Amazon. Has there been a way to keep live view on permanently before I do
I’m wondering when will Ring add a feature that allows users to monitor all cameras like an NVR system 24/7. Let’s say users buy a cheap iPad just to monitor Ring cameras around the house. I always want to put an iPad to monitor Ring cameras around my house in the bedroom but unfortunately, that function is not available. Hopefully, they’ll add it soon.

Actually, my mailbox + cars were broken into last night. Did my ring cameras catch it? No. I pay for the highest subscription and I can’t believe my investment in Ring cameras didn’t work. This is why 24/7 recoding is necessary. Motion detection doesn’t work all the time!!!
I’m also trying to use ring cam as a baby monitor. Huge disappointed, but i hope ring impliments continuous viewing soon
Seeing how far this issue goes back and how ring is ignoring this, its starting to feel pretty hopeless.
I wish that I had known about this before purchasing the product and investing so much time setting up the alarm, lights, and camera system. Unfortunately I had received the cameras last… It seems like this is a pretty important feature that should be included in the marketing material. As the use cases for this feature are some of the most basic expectations that people have when buying cameras.
I really can’t believe it, it’s such a major disappointment. The cameras only ended up satisfying 1 out of 3 use cases that I had (1: capture on person detection, 2: baby monitor, 3: live security house monitoring to have in the background while i work late at night --when I hear the neighbors dogs barking loud i’m curious about what’s going on out there)
nope … we’re not worth responding to
And here are my 20 not so similar characters for this reply…
Blah blah blah
Well it’s been 2 years since voting opened. Can we get an idea when this feature will roll-out.
Thanks Ring Team!
Re: the 10 min live limit if subscribed, my needs are: 10 seconds live recorded if motion is detected. If viewed on a desktop device do not shut off live display, just record motion section(s) as done currently. Add a scheduling feature for this continued live viewing i.e. " “no notification sounds” = checkboxes to select times. That would reduce the storage and record keeping to only my requested data, and allow the camera(s) to act as monitors.
Any update on continuous recording?
I could care less about continuous recording, but I can’t believe you can’t continuously view the camera on a device, specifically for a baby monitor.
Extend the length of Live View (24/7 recording) Please add it.
Ring, take notice your ring community need it.
There are handy buttons on live view like “Mic On/Off”, “Speaker On/Off”, “Lights On/Off” (if applicable), etc. Why not add “Record On/Off”? Record options can timeout after 10 minutes (reducing cloud storage requirements) and only reactivate again if motion is detected or by manually clicking record button again, but critically, leave live view active and continuously broadcasting.
For me, the other requested feature for multiple views in a single session is not as critical (at least on a computer with a browser) since I can pull up two or more live views in separate browser instances side by-side and dock them on a screen.
Like others here, I do like to monitor outdoor activities in a surveillance type mode.
Continuous live view existed on my Amazon Cloud Cam that came out almost a decade ago and Amazon (owner of Ring) just bricked those cameras. They offered Blink cameras to replace them but like Ring the Blink’s don’t allow continuous live view either. Crazy and really disappointing that they have taken this major step backward. If it was possible 10 years ago and technology has gotten so much better in that time I can’t imagine why this is so hard now. Get it together Ring/Amazon and listen to your customers!
I got a Ring Floodlight cam for a Christmas present from my family. After finding out that you cannot continuously monitor a live view with the camera (not continuous record, I don’t need or expect that) I am returning the Ring and looking for something else.
I’m also a +1 for this, i would love to have a small monitor or other device showing my streams 24/7 on an indoor security screen like any other camera system can. I find it quite odd that these are premium priced cameras but missing real basic NVR capabilities. I don’t need it to be recording 24/7 i understand that this would drastically increase the save streams online and therefore storage, but the ability to directly stream the cameras live just on my local network would be much better.
@ Ring team any updates on this?
so Ring acknowledged and is working to bring this feature but where is it?!
