Arm and Disarm Ring Alarm With Mode Schedules

Mode schedules1 allow you to create a schedule to change the mode of your Ring Alarm system.

For example, if you routinely arm your system at night, you may want to create a schedule that will automatically switch your Ring Alarm to Home Mode1 every night at 10pm. If you put your system in Home Mode every night but have a different evening routine on the weekend, you can set up a second schedule just for weekends to accommodate your lifestyle.

Note: Mode Schedules require a Ring Alarm system and a Ring Protect subscription.

While Alarm Owners and Shared Users can can arm or disarm using the app at anytime, only Alarm Owners can create and delete schedules.
