New to Ring - Setup

Hello community,

I’m new to the whole Ring thing and smart home connections. I just purchased the Ring alarm system which came with an Echo 5, and added a Schlage Connect door lock.

How do I connect all these devices together? Is there one App that I utilize to control all this? Would I use the Ring app or Alexa App?

I’m also looking into a smart thermostat. Is the Ecobee or Nest easier to integrate?

I’m looking for overall simplicity.


Your course of action should be to get the latest app. Then when you activate each device, it should then show up in the app and will instruct you how to complete the setup of each device. From what I understand, Alexa is a supplement app.
