My Ring Alarm Base Station Pro connected to a fiber ISP via Ethernet cable at my other residence started reporting power losses every 3 to 5 minutes, then had the power restored. This occurs all day!!
The unit is plugged directly into the outlet and the electrical panel has a whole house surge protector. The electrical usage for the whole house is 102 watts (since no one is home) (Sense smart panel reported no issues). Everything has been operational with no issues for the past 5 months with no changes and it started occurring in the early morning hours a couple days ago.
Called the electrical company and they came out to verify nothing was wrong.
Rebooted the unit remotely several times.
Ring Technical support also rebooted the unit
While I’m waiting to hear back from Ring Technical support (last issue took 9 months to resolve), does anyone have any advice.
Same thing happening on my ring base station. Ethernet cable directly in to router, ups power. backup. Mine started doing this in the beginning if August. None of of my other devices are reporting anything. Interested in finding out what you learn. BYW, I’m in Northern California.
I think others here should check their ring base station history. I’m a techy too and have notifications enable on everything. Maybe people are experiencing this and are not aware of it.
Hi neighbors. If your Base Station is continuously reporting loss of power and you have tried rebooting the Base Station, verified there is no damage to the power cable, and verified the outlet to which it is connected is functioning properly, the next best step would be to contact our support team to further investigate. Give our support team a call at one of the numbers available here. If you are outside of the US, please visit here to see how to contact support. If you have already reached out to our support team and have not heard back from them in the time that was mentioned, I recommend giving them a call once more.
FYI: Contacted Eero support. They went through the logs and didn’t find anything of value in troubleshooting. I was transferred to Ring Support. They went through logs on their end and verified with me that there were no power issues, direct connection to the wall (Note: have a surge protector built into the panel). I verified temperature levels were in acceptable range and they asked if it was near any other electrical equipment.
During the power loss process, it sometimes states that its going to cellular data. Though since last Friday its only used 2MB of the 3GB per month, so this shouldn’t be an issue even with the 8 cameras.
There was a firmware update that was pending. Firmware updates can only be applied when the unit is in Disarmed mode. Due to the frequent power loss process, the firmware update cannot be applied even when Ring 2nd Level support forces the update.
My Fiber ISP supports Eero routers, which I declined since the basestation Pro has an Eero router built into it. The fiber ISP doesn’t have any access to my router, so that shouldn’t be an issue. Also, Eero tech support should have caught that if it was when the were investigating my logs.
Other troubleshooting steps involved, included me rebooting the Ring basestation and Ring Support sending a reboot command on there end.
Ring Support can no longer aid me since the final troubleshooting step requires manual intervention (i.e. powering off the unit). Since there’s 1,430 mile gap between me and unit, I’ve elected to turn off notifications. Ring App > Hamburger bar (i.e. three lines top left) > Settings > Alert Settings > Alarm > Push and turn off Battery Backup, Bypassed Devices, Cellular Backup, Mode Updates, Base Station Status, Device Status, and Low Battery thereafter selecting Save. The issue is that I’m still getting notifications of “Ring Alarm Pro is saving power while on battery backup. Essential security features available without app access.” Any ideas how to get rid of that notification?
@Too_Techy. It looks like the alert you are referring to cannot be disabled on iOS. Is this what you are using? I am reaching out to my team to have this looked into.
