Is a monthly/annual subscription service necessary in order to use the Ring Mailbox Sensor + Bridge?

A neighbor told me that a subscription is necessary to use Ring products. Is a monthly/annual subscription service necessary in order to use the Ring Mailbox Sensor + Bridge?

Hi @metta. No, a Ring Protect subscription is not necessary to use any of our devices, including the Ring Mailbox Sensor and Bridge. There are additional features that are only available with a Ring Protect plan, such as video recordings from Doorbells and Cameras being saved, but you can still use the Mailbox Sensor and Bridge without a plan just fine. I’d recommend checking out our Help Center Article on our plans here to learn more. I hope that helps! :slight_smile:
