Having control over all of your Ring devices in one simple, easy to use app is important. I know when I’m running around town, having the ability to press one button to monitor my home is key. That is why we are introducing Modes - a feature I am very excited to share with you! Modes, is a new Ring App feature that simplifies how you interact with all of your Ring devices. When Modes are enabled, you have the ability to customize how your Ring devices operate in three different ways: Home, Away and Disarmed. This feature will be available for all Ring Cameras, Video Doorbells and Alarm devices. See below for more information about each mode:
- Disarmed Mode - is best if you are looking to disable all of your Ring devices at once. By default, in this mode, all Ring Doorbells and Cams will not detect motion or provide access to Live View, and all Ring Alarm sensors will not be armed.
- Home Mode - is great when you’re heading to bed and are looking to monitor just the outside while you move freely and privately indoors. By default, in Home Mode, indoor cameras do not detect motion or provide Live View, but outdoor cameras remain fully active.
- Away Mode - is for when you want to monitor your whole home, inside and out. You can select this mode when heading out of your home to activate your Ring Doorbells, Cams and Alarm. In Away Mode, by default, all cameras detect motion and provide access to Live View. All Ring Alarm sensors are active and armed when set to Away Mode.
Be on the lookout for Modes to become available starting November.
