Linked Account problems stopping integration with Water Monitoring & Smoke Alarms (Tech support is a dead end)

When trying to link amazon to my ring app I get the message your Amazon account is already associated with a ring account.

Contacted Ring Support:

Ring Account:

  • Removed Skill
  • Cannot link account

The skill can be added on the Amazon side, but the Ring side doesn’t recognize the Amazon account.


  • The smoke alarms and water monitoring system can’t be integrated.

Is anyone else having this issue?

Should legal action be taken?

Hi @Too_Techy. If you are getting the message that your Amazon account is already associated with a Ring account, then it means you may have already linked your Amazon account with another Ring account. Double check any other possible Ring account you could have made before to see if it is linked there. If you do find it, you will want to unlink it from your Amazon account. Also, try linking your Amazon account with Ring on to see if that makes a difference. If you have tried these steps and are still having the same concern, you will have to continue working with our support team for further assistance. You can also reach out to our support team on Facebook by sending them a private message to @Ring.

Tried all of those steps multiple times. Called Ring twice. Escalated twice. The last time I called was a few weeks ago. They’re still trying to figure it out…Oiee!!
