With the Ring app open and your devices displayed on the home screen, you are now ready to proceed to the next step: accessing your device settings.
Step 2: Access your device settings
Once you have opened the Ring app and are on the home screen, it’s time to access the settings for the specific device you want to change the WiFi network for.
To access the device settings, locate and tap on the device you wish to configure. This will take you to the device’s information screen, where you can view its live feed, recorded events, and device-specific settings.
On the device information screen, you will find a gear icon or a settings option that represents the device settings. Tap on this icon or option to proceed to the device settings page.

Now that you have successfully accessed the device settings, you are ready to move on to the next step: selecting “Device Health.”
Step 3: Select “Device Health”
Once you have accessed the device settings, the next step is to navigate to the “Device Health” section. This section allows you to view your device’s current status, signal strength, battery level, and other important details.
To select “Device Health,” scroll down or navigate through the options available on the device settings page. Look for the “Device Health” or a similar option and tap on it to enter the Device Health section.
Within the “Device Health” section, you will find comprehensive information regarding the status of your device. This includes the device’s connection status, WiFi signal strength, battery level, firmware version, and any other relevant details.

Scroll through the options available within the “Device Health” section until you find the “Wifi Network” option. Once you have located it, tap on it to proceed.
By tapping on “Wifi Network,” you will be taken to a new screen where you can view the current WiFi network that your Ring device is connected to.
On this screen, you will see the name (SSID) of the current WiFi network, as well as the signal strength and other relevant details. Take note of the current network settings as you are about to change them to a new WiFi network.
If you have already set up a new WiFi network or want to connect your Ring device to a different network, you can proceed to the next step: selecting your new WiFi network.

Step 5: Select your new WiFi network
After tapping on the “Wifi Network” option, you will be presented with a list of available WiFi networks in your vicinity. This list will include both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks, so make sure to select the appropriate network for your Ring device.
Scroll through the list and locate your new WiFi network. The network names (SSIDs) will be displayed, along with the signal strength and any applicable security icons.
Once you have found your new WiFi network, tap on it to select it as the network you want to connect your Ring device to. Be sure to double-check the network name to ensure you are selecting the correct one.
If your new WiFi network is not displayed in the list, try refreshing the network list by swiping down or using the refresh button, usually represented by a circular arrow or similar symbol.
It’s important to note that if your new WiFi network is hidden or does not appear in the list, you may need to manually enter the network information. Look for an option like “Manually Add Network” or “Hidden Network” to input the network name and password manually.
Once you have successfully selected your new WiFi network, you are one step closer to changing the WiFi network on the Ring app. The next step is to enter the password for the selected WiFi network.
Now that you have selected your new WiFi network, let’s move on to the next step: entering your new WiFi password.
Step 6: Enter your new WiFi password
After selecting your new WiFi network, the next step is to enter the password for the network. This ensures that your Ring device can securely connect to the chosen WiFi network.
On the screen where you selected your new WiFi network, you will find a text field or password input box. Tap on this field to bring up the keyboard and enter your new WiFi password.
Make sure to enter the password accurately, paying attention to uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters. WiFi passwords are case-sensitive, so be mindful of any capital letters.
If you are not entirely sure what your new WiFi password is or where to find it, refer to your router’s manual or contact your internet service provider (ISP) for assistance. They should be able to provide you with the necessary information.
Utilize the keyboard on your device to enter your new WiFi password. Take your time and double-check for any mistakes before proceeding.
Once you have entered your new WiFi password correctly, you are ready to move on to the next step: configuring your device with the new WiFi settings.
Now that you have entered your new WiFi password, you’ve successfully completed this step. Let’s move on to the final step: configuring your device with the new WiFi settings.
Step 7: Configure your device with the new WiFi settings
After entering your new WiFi password, the final step is to configure your device with the new WiFi settings. This ensures that your Ring device is connected to the updated WiFi network and can function seamlessly.
Upon entering the new WiFi password, the Ring app will automatically begin the configuration process. This involves updating the WiFi settings on your device to match the new network.
During this process, your Ring device may momentarily disconnect from the app and your old WiFi network. This is normal and should be resolved once the configuration is complete.
While the device is configuring, it is essential to keep your smartphone or tablet connected to the new WiFi network. This ensures a smooth transfer of data and settings to the device.
Once the configuration is complete, you will receive a notification or confirmation message indicating that your Ring device is now successfully connected to the new WiFi network.
At this point, you can test the connection by accessing the live feed or performing other actions on your Ring device through the app. If everything is functioning correctly, you can consider the WiFi network change process complete.
If, however, you encounter any issues or your device fails to connect to the new WiFi network, double-check the entered password, ensure a stable internet connection, and retry the configuration process.
Remember that the process of configuring your device may vary slightly depending on the specific Ring device you are using. However, the general principle remains the same – updating the WiFi settings to match the new network.
With your device successfully configured with the new WiFi settings, you can now enjoy uninterrupted connectivity and optimal performance for your Ring device.
