Ring


The ring implementation allows you to integrate your Ring.com devices in Home Assistant.

There is currently support for the following device types within Home Assistant:

This component does NOT allow for live viewing of your Ring camera within Home Assistant.

Configuration

Go to the integrations page in your config and click on new integration -> Ring.

YAML configuration

YAML configuration is around for people that prefer YAML, but it’s not preferred! The YAML method does not work with two-factor authentication and it requires you to store your username/password. The normal method only requires you to enter username/password once.

To enable device linked in your Ring.com account, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
ring:
  username: YOUR_USERNAME
  password: YOUR_PASSWORD

Configuration Variables

username

(string)(Required)

The username for accessing your Ring account.

password

(string)(Required)

The password for accessing your Ring account.

Binary Sensor

Once you have enabled the Ring integration, you can start using a binary sensor. Currently, it supports doorbell, external chimes and stickup cameras.

Camera

Please note that downloading and playing Ring video will require a Ring Protect plan.

Once you have enabled the Ring integration, you can start using the camera platform. Currently, it supports doorbell and stickup cameras.

Saving the videos captured by your Ring Door Bell

You can save locally the latest video captured by your Ring Door Bell using the downloader along with either an automation or python_script. First, enable the downloader integration in your configuration by adding the following to your configuration.yaml.

downloader:
  download_dir: downloads

Then you can use the following action in your automation (this will save the video file under <config>/downloads/ring_<camera_name>/):

action:
  - service: downloader.download_file
    data_template:
      url: "{{ state_attr('camera.front_door', 'video_url') }}"
      subdir: "{{state_attr('camera.front_door', 'friendly_name')}}"
      filename: "{{state_attr('camera.front_door', 'friendly_name')}}"

If you want to use python_script, enable it your configuration.yaml file first:

python_script:

You can then use the following python_script to save the video file:

# obtain ring doorbell camera object
# replace the camera.front_door by your camera entity
ring_cam = hass.states.get("camera.front_door")

subdir_name = f"ring_{ring_cam.attributes.get('friendly_name')}"

# get video URL
data = {
    "url": ring_cam.attributes.get("video_url"),
    "subdir": subdir_name,
    "filename": ring_cam.attributes.get("friendly_name"),
}

# call downloader integration to save the video
hass.services.call("downloader", "download_file", data)

Sensor

Once you have enabled the Ring integration, you can start using the sensor platform. Currently, it supports doorbell, external chimes and stickup cameras.

Switch

Once you have enabled the Ring integration, you can start using the switch platform. This will add a switch for every camera that supports a siren. Note the siren will only turn on for 30 seconds before automatically turning off.

Light

Once you have enabled the Ring integration, you can start using the light platform. This will add a light for every camera that supports a light (such as a floodlight).
