How Do I Watch the Ring Camera Video?

If you own a Ring camera, you probably want to know how to watch the video footage it captures. Thankfully, it’s a pretty simple process. In this article, we’ll guide you through the steps you need to follow to view your Ring camera video.

Step 1: Download the Ring App

Before you can access your Ring camera footage, you must first download the Ring app on your smartphone or tablet. The app is available for both iOS and Android devices, and it’s free to download from the App Store or Google Play.

Step 2: Sign in to Your Account

Once the app is installed on your device, open it up and sign in to your Ring account. If you don’t have an account yet, you’ll need to create one before proceeding.

Step 3: Select Your Camera

After logging in, select the camera that you want to view from the list of devices associated with your account. If you have multiple cameras, make sure that you select the one that recorded the video that you want to watch.

Step 4: View Your Video

Once you’ve selected your camera, navigate to its live view screen. From there, select “Event History” or “Recorded Events” (depending on your device) and choose the video that you want to watch.

  • Note: If no videos are appearing in your event history or recorded events list, it could be because there haven’t been any recent recordings or because motion detection is turned off.

Additional Tips:

If watching a recorded event rather than live footage:

  • Timeline: The timeline at the bottom of the screen allows for easy navigation through videos.
  • Share: Share video clips with friends and family or download them to your device for safekeeping.


Watching your Ring camera video is a simple process that can be done from the Ring app on your smartphone or tablet. With just a few clicks, you can access your live footage or recorded events and keep an eye on your home or business at all times.
