Disconnecting a Ring camera can be a simple process if you follow the right steps. Whether you want to move the camera to a new location or simply take it offline, you need to know how to disconnect it properly. Here’s how to do it:
1. Open the Ring app on your smartphone or tablet and tap on the camera that you want to disconnect.
2. Tap on the gear icon in the top right corner to access the settings for that camera.
3. Scroll down and tap on “Remove Device”.
4. Confirm that you want to remove the device by tapping on “Remove” again.
5. Wait for the camera to disconnect from your Wi-Fi network.
6. Unplug the camera from its power source.
If you want to reconnect the camera later, you can repeat the setup process to connect it to your Wi-Fi network again.
It is important to note that if you are disconnecting a Ring camera that is part of a Ring security system, you should first disable the camera in the system settings to avoid any security issues. This can be done by following these steps:
1. Open the Ring app and tap on the menu button in the top left corner.
2. Tap on “Devices” and select the security system that the camera is part of.
3. Tap on “Settings” and then “Modes”.
4. Toggle off the mode that includes the camera you want to disconnect.
By following these steps, you can safely disconnect your Ring camera and ensure that your home security system is working as intended.
