I've had the Ring alarm system for just over a year and all alarm devices (door contacts, motion sensors, smoke detectors) show fully charged battery...no battery usage at all. Is that even possible or does the battery indicator even work?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What about the Keypad? That will be a sure sign that something isn't working properly as the battery in mine only lasts a few weeks.
Great question @mikebtp! The battery used in the Alarm Contact Sensors and Motion Detectors are a CR123A battery. These have a life expectancy of up to 3 years. The nature of the Alarm system is to use the Base Station as the hub for communicating to the rest of your Alarm devices through Zwave, which often requires less battery usage for the sensors. Check out our help center article on Zwave to learn more.
In regards to the Keypad, this uses a different rechargeable battery, in which plugging in for power will of course help with charge duration. I hope this helps!
