Using Live View

Live View is a feature available through the Ring app you can use to see what’s happening outside your door, around your home, or wherever you've set up your Ring doorbell or camera(s). To access Live View, simply open your Ring app and tap on an image from one of your Ring devices. 

Make sure to keep your Ring app updated to get the latest Live View features and experience improvements.

Additional Options 

Once you've ended a Live View, at the bottom of the screen you'll see options to:

  • Share events
  • View the Calendar to see recordings from a particular day
  • Filter events by Type or Show All


Tap the three dots (More) to access options like Delete, Favorite, Download, Snapshot, and Feedback.

Please note that adding a Favorite star does not permanently save videos, it only adds them to your Favorites list. To permanently save a video, choose the Download option.


Please note that some Live View features are only available for Ring Protect plan subscribers.
