Setting Modes on Your Ring Alarm

Security Modes are the different settings on your Ring Alarm that will protect your home in different ways depending on your current needs. There are three different Modes available on your Ring Alarm.

Disarmed

When Disarmed, no sensors in your home will be monitored and no alerts will be sent to the monitoring station although the system will still be powered on and functioning. Use Disarmed when you’re at home and want the freedom to go in and out of your house easily. Fire and CO sensors (if they are attached to the system) will still be monitored.

Home Mode

In Home mode, only certain sensors will be monitored. Home mode is most often used when you would like the perimeter sensors (doors and windows) of your house monitored but want to be able to move freely around the inside of your home. You can control which sensors will be monitored in Home mode by setting them in your Ring app. To do this:

  • Tap the Menu (☰)
  • Tap Settings
  • Tap Modes
  • Tap Home
  • Tap Sensors
  • Tap which sensors you would like monitored while in this mode.

Away Mode

When Away Mode is turned on, all of your sensors will be monitored and an alert will be issued if any of them are faulted. Away Mode is the mode to use to secure your house when leaving your home. Note that you can also control which sensors will be monitored in Away mode by setting them in your Ring app. To do this:

  • Tap the Menu (☰)
  • Tap Settings
  • Tap Modes
  • Tap Away
  • Tap Sensors
  • Tap which sensors you would like monitored while in this mode.
