The system can be installed without any professional help. Ring Protect can combine with Ring’s other products such as Ring doorbell and spotlight cameras. With an optional $10 a month subscription fee, owners of Ring Protect can avail round-the-clock professional monitoring, cellular data backup, and unlimited video storage. You can control or monitor your setup with the Ring app, though you can set and disarm the system using the keypad if you’re away from your phone.
Ring had showcased its DIY home security system as Ring Protect in November 2017. Earlier this year the company was acquired by Amazon. Having fought a long lawsuit, Ring has finally been able to put its home security system for sale.
