Ring Alarm stuck on update

My Ring app still shows my base is still trying to update 8 hours later. Should I unplug the base and remove the batteries? I noticed it when I woke up this morning so could have been longer than 8 hours. It’s on wifi. Thanks.

Re: Ring Alarm stuck on update

Hey neighbors! If you find yourself having this concern, the best first step is to reach out to our support team here. They will be able to diagnose your Base Station quickly and efficiently to get it back up and running in no time so you can feel safe and secure. Additionally, another neighbor shared that when they unplugged the Base Station from power, removed the battery, waited a bit, added the battery back in and plugged it back up, it seemed to work! Feel free to give this a try as well if you wish to. I will be marking this post as a solution going forward to ensure that all neighbors are getting a speedy resolution for their concern.

Re: Ring Alarm stuck on update

Hi @xNitetime, were you able to get it out of updating? If so, please share what you did to help other neighbors who might be experiencing this. The Alarm Base Station can also be plugged in via Ethernet, so you can always attempt to do that and see if it speeds up the update. If the Base Station is still updating after that, please reach out to our support team at 1-800-656-1918!

Re: Ring Alarm stuck on update

I ended up unplugging the base power and removed the battery. Then added the battery back and plugged it back in which seemed to work. In the app showed everything was updated.

Thanks! Mine is doing the exact same thing. Must be a bug with the latest update

Re: Ring Alarm stuck on update

I had the same issue. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and all I got was an amber power light. Nothing else came on.  Did a factory reset and now the app is still showing updating but the base unit is in setup mode.  Anyone know how to get the app to stop the update process?  When logging into the website, it also shows that the base unit is updating.

Same here. I'm beginning to think that the Ring alarms aren't very good.

Re: Ring Alarm stuck on update

My issue appeared to be the same, stuck on an update but actually was an issue with the Android app.

Cleared the storage cache for the Ring app and the updating status went away. In part figured this out when I looked on my iPad and the Alarm had finished the update but my Android phone still showed updating...30 minutes later.

My solution was to hard wire the alarm to the router vs trying to do it wireless. After the update was done and all sensors online, I switched to wireless with no issues. I had to do a full factory reset of the base before plugging it in to the router.

Re: Ring Alarm stuck on update

Same issue with my hard wired unit.  Unplugging the power and removing the battery , waiting 60 seconds, then adding the battery and plugging the power returned the unit to normal operating condition.  It then began the update again which completed successfully after 2-3 mins.  I suspect the unit may have gotten confused by hiccups at the home network or ISP level, a common problem with network equipment often resolve by a simple restart.
