Why do I need a "forced subscription" for cameras

The RING alarm system is basically good and easy to use.

But why is there practically a compulsory subscription for the cameras?

Anyone who wants to have recordings on the Internet can certainly complete it.

But the base station also has a USB port. Why can’t Ring save locally like other providers?

For remote surveillance, the cameras are worthless, at least for nighttime access.

Hi @HilliBilli. Although the Ring Alarm does not support local video storage, the Ring Alarm Pro does. Check out our Help Center page here for more information on this subject. I hope this is close to what you are looking for.
