I want to install a Ring Alarm in an off-grid cabin that has no wifi. The Ring support team said wifi is needed for set up, but also that wifi is used frequently for pings, updates, etc.
I am thinking of having a data hotspot in the cabin, plugged in and continually running, with a data plan (say, 10 GB/month). This way I can set it up, and also be able to access the camera feed periodically.
Can anyone out there tell me how much data their Ring Alarm typically uses per month? You may be able to look at your internet service provider dashboard to see your devices, and how much data they use. This will tell me if the hotspot plan is feasable.
Thank you for helping with this unusual situation!
