Hello, I just received the indoor cam I ordered a few days ago and I have a couple of questions. When I first bought the cam I was under the impression for some reason that you plugged it in to charge up and then remove the charging plug, but I’m not sure that’s the case? One other question I had is it possioble to view what the camera is recording on my computer and if so how do I do that? Thank you for your help.
Hi @scorpio012! The Indoor Cam requires constant power from the power adapter to operate. That being said, the chord is 6.5’ in length to allow for various mounting scenarios.
As for viewing on the computer, this is certainly possible! You may download the Ring app on a compatible Mac or Windows laptop, which will allow you to review events and live view notifications. There is also the option to access your recording history via web browser by signing into your Ring account on Ring.com.
Thank you for answering my question and so quickly! Unforunately I need to admit that I am not very computer literate and so my question may seem elementary to you. I have my Cam set up for my phone, but I would really like to have it set up on my computer as well. Can you provide me with step by step instructions on how to do so? I would extremely grateful if you could! Thanks again.
