Ring app phone permissions

Just curious if anyone else has noticed that their Ring app has turned on their permissions to use their phone camera?

Hi @user27462. The Ring app uses your phone’s camera for device setup purposes, as you will be prompted to scan the QR code on the device to go through the setup process. You can turn this permission off, but you may be prompted to turn it on again if you set up a new device in the Ring app. I hope this helps clear things up.
