Home Mode | Need Help

Hi everyone. My name’s Chris. I’m from the UK. I’ve gone and got my Ring security System. The only thing is, I don’t know how to put it into home Mode without the fear of the alarm going off. Can someone please help me?

You should have a “test” period where you can test your setup and get familiar with the various settings. Have you tried that yet?
For me, and it’s different for everyone, Home Mode is only Windows and Doors. No motion detection. Away mode is everything.

Hi @Chr15W. In Home mode, only certain sensors will be monitored. Home mode is most often used when you would like the perimeter sensors (doors and windows) of your house monitored but want to be able to move freely around the inside of your home without triggering the alarm. You can control which sensors will be monitored in Home mode by setting them in your Ring app.

To do this:

  • Tap the three-lined icon on the upper left-hand side of your screen.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Modes.
  • Tap Home.
  • Tap Sensors.
  • Tap which sensors you would like monitored while in this mode.

You can also find more information on arming and disarming your Ring Alarm security system in our Help Center Article here. I hope this helps answer your questions! :slight_smile:
