System function during power outage?

I do not currently have a security system in my home and am researching various makes and models to find what fits my needs.

Does the Ring system continue to function during a power outage (assuming wifi is still up and operational on UPS backup)?

Glad you asked, @Anon_Y_Mous! The Ring Alarm system features both battery back up and cellular back up. Battery backup will initiate in the event of power loss, and will last up to 24 hours. Cellular backup is a feature of the Protect Plus Plan subscription, and if subscribed, will help to keep your Alarm connected in order to communicate critical emergency signals.

As you mentioned having a router with a backup power supply, that is another great backup to have. Feel free to also check out our help center article about the Alarm backup features. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
