How to setup e-mail alerts

Just yesterday I finally got a chance to setup my Ring Peephole cam, and so far, overall, so good!

However, I cannot figure out how to have it send e-mail notifications when there is motion? Push notifications work just fine, but at work I cannot have my phone on me, so e-mail notifications are a must. I am using the iOS app, but I am unable to find that setting anywhere at all, and I am unable to also find it on the actual website.

My indoor Nest came can do this, so I am hoping the Ring camera can as well. For some reason, if e-mail notifications are not possible, I honestly then have no need for it, so I am really hoping that I just overlooked it.

Thanks to everyone here for any input they can provide!

Hi there, @Pikaroth! At this time, email alerts are not a feature of the Ring app, for motion alerts. If you are subscribed to a Protect Plan, your event history can be accessed via web browser by logging in at There are also integrations available, such as Alexa, which can extend your alerts to another device, like an Alexa enabled device.
