2019’s Best Ring Compatible Devices

Ring is best known for its stylish smart doorbells, but the Amazon-owned smart home and home security company offers smart lights, security cameras, and more. And though Ring has limited third-party compatibility—you won’t be able to set the smart lights in your foyer to turn on when someone presses your Ring doorbell—its products are compatible with some Z-Wave devices.

Below are some of the best Ring compatible devices, from security cameras to smart locks.

What Ring equipment is compatible with each other?

If you already have a Ring device, whether it’s one of Ring’s video doorbells, security cameras, or smart lights, you’ll be able to use it with the Ring security system. But you’ll need the Ring Bridge if you want to connect a Ring smart light with the rest of your system.

The Ring Bridge lets your Ring smart lights talk to each other and other Ring products. That way, when the Ring Floodlight next to your front door detects you leaving, your Ring Pathlights will light up so you can see your way down the stairs.

If your house is on the bigger side, consider a range extender to lengthen the signal from your alarm base station to your Ring devices no matter where they are.

Ring Spotlight Battery

The Ring Spotlight Battery is an inexpensive, no-frills outdoor light that will illuminate your front door when you’re coming back in from putting the garbage out for trash day. At 400 lumens, it’s not super bright—that’s about as much light as you’d want in your reading nook—but it’s enough to give you a brighter view up to 30 feet away at night.

To access any smart features, you’ll have to purchase the Ring Bridge for $50. Thankfully, you can also get it a bit cheaper in a bundle: you can get a two-pack of the Ring Spotlight Battery plus the Ring Bridge for only $99.99.

>>Get the Ring Spotlight.

Ring Floodlight Battery

The battery-powered Ring Floodlight is a good fit if you need a bright, motion-activated light to shine above your garage or back door. You can adjust the Floodlight Battery’s motion sensor with a 180° field of view, and its light will illuminate up to 45 feet.

The light itself is brighter than the Spotlight Battery at 600 lumens, but you’ll still need the Ring Bridge to integrate it with your other Ring products.

>>Get the Ring Floodlight Battery.

Ring Floodlight Wired

The Ring Floodlight Wired has all of the same features as the Floodlight Battery with a couple of key differences. Firstly, it’s hardwired instead of wireless, so you’ll never have to worry about changing batteries. And the Floodlight Wired’s light is much brighter at 2000 lumens. Most floodlights max out at about 1300 lumens, so the Ring Floodlight Wired is definitely enough for you to keep an eye on your front yard—and whether someone is there that shouldn’t be.

>>Get the Ring Floodlight Wired.

Other Ring compatible lights available

The Ring Pathlight is a small, battery-powered light that you can stake along your walkway for increased visibility. At 80 lumens, it lets you see up to 15 feet away.

The Ring Steplight is a battery-powered light that you can mount onto decks, along stairways, and more. At 35 lumens, it’ll give off enough soft light to make it up the stairs or across the patio.

Ring Stick Up Cam Battery

The Ring Stick Up Cam can be mounted inside or outside on any flat surface, like the ceiling outside of your front door. You can use the Ring app to see, hear, and speak to punctual pals or delivery people on camera from your mobile device or PC. And you’ll be able to see them clearly with crisp 1080p high-definition video.

If monitoring batteries isn’t your thing, Ring has a few options. You can keep it powered with a solar panel, or you can go for the Stick Up Cam Wired, which plugs into an outlet.

>>Get the Ring Stick Up Cam Battery.

Ring Spotlight Cam Battery

With the Spotlight Cam Battery, Ring offers a spotlight and camera in one. You’ll get 140° field of view, 1080p video, plus a remote activated 100-decibel alarm that can scare off baddies. That’s about as loud as the front row of a Hall & Oates concert when they break out “You Make My Dreams.”

Ring offers a wired Spotlight that plugs into a standard outlet, a hardwired mounted camera that connects to a weatherproof electrical box, and a solar panel to keep the camera charged.

>>Get the Ring Spotlight Cam Battery.

Ring Floodlight Cam

The Ring Floodlight Cam is a hardwired, adjustable floodlight-meets-camera with smart zoom and panning. It also lets you customize motion zones up to 30 feet and has a 140° field of view.

If you’re wary of teens fumbling around in the dark, the Floodlight Cam also keeps things nice and bright with a combined 1800 lumens. And like the Spotlight Cam, the Floodlight Cam has a remote-activated siren that you can use to scare off trespassers when you’re away from home.

>>Get the Ring Floodlight Cam.

Adding cloud storage

If you want access to cloud storage, where you can download, share, and review videos for up to 60 days, you’ll want a subscription to Ring’s Protect Basic Plan. That starts at a pretty inexpensive $3 a month or $30 a year. When comparing Ring vs. Nest, this is one place where Ring shines. Nest Aware’s cheapest subscription is $5 per month, or $50 per year, and gives you only five days of video history.

Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt

If your heart rate jumps every time you lock yourself out, a smart lock can provide peace of mind for about the same price as a locksmith. The Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt works with Ring’s alarm security system and lets you lock and unlock your door from the Ring app. Plus, you can create up to 30 access pin codes—so even if you’ve left your phone in the office, you can still get into your house (and so can every member of your immediate family).

Kwikset Smartcode Electronic Deadbolt

The Kwikset Smartcode Electronic Deadbolt is easy to install and helps make day-to-day life much more convenient. You can also use Alexa to ask whether your front door is locked or not and unlock it for a friend while you’re in the kitchen. And while the lock itself lets you create up to 30 programmable user access codes, you can also create individual or shared codes in the Ring app to let certain guests control your lock or alarm system.

Ring Video Doorbell

The Ring Video Doorbell is an excellent pick if you’re on a budget. It’s easy to install, has adjustable motion zones, and has an impressive 180° field of view so you can see more of your porch. Its resolution is on the lower side at 720 HD, but it still makes for a solid, versatile smart doorbell. You’ll be able to access live video on demand and motion alerts for free too.

>>Get the Ring Video Doorbell.

ASL Insider Tip

Are Ring doorbells Z-Wave compatible?

Not exactly. If you want to control a variety of Z-Wave devices under one roof, you’ll have to get the Ring Alarm security system, which acts as its own hub. From there, you’ll be able to automate your Ring doorbells and any other Z-Wave devices.

Ring Video Doorbell 2

The Ring Video Doorbell 2 takes the Ring Video Doorbell and gives it a cute little upgrade. Your field of view will shrink to 160°, but you’ll get 1080 high-definition video and a quick-release battery that helps keep your Ring 2 charged. And it’s still pretty easy to install, whether you decide to install it wirelessly or hardwire it into your existing doorbell setup.

>>Get the Ring Video Doorbell 2.

Ring Video Doorbell Pro

The Ring Video Doorbell Pro is sleeker and more aesthetically pleasing than its predecessors. It offers a lot of the same features, like a 1080p resolution and customizable motion zones, but you have to hardwire it next to your front door.

>>Get the Ring Video Doorbell Pro.

Other Ring compatible doorbells available

The Ring Video Doorbell Elite connects with a Power over Ethernet cord, so it’s a good fit for rural homes that don’t have a solid connection to a Wi-Fi network.

The Ring Door View Cam is perfect for renters: it attaches on either side of your door’s peephole and sends you notifications when someone knocks on your door or enters into one of your customizable motion zones.

What Ring is not compatible with

The Ring Alarm security system acts as a kind of smart hub for Ring products and a limited number of Z-Wave devices. At this point, Ring’s compatibility is essentially limited to its own products, a variety of dimmers and outlets from companies like GE and Leviton, and the smart lock brands above. You won’t be able to control your smart bulbs or smart thermostats from the Ring app. You’ll get more integrations with a smart speaker.

Does Ring work with Google Home?

You can use Google Assistant to talk to your Ring products and ask your Ring Video Doorbell 2 to turn on motion alerts or request that your Ring Spotlight Cam start a new recording. But you won’t be able to stream video from your doorbell or security camera to your Google Nest Hub Max.

The bottom line

If you have a Ring Alarm security system, it makes sense to use it as a hub for your Ring doorbells, cameras, and more.

But if you want more flexibility with your automation, we recommend a smart hub from Amazon or Google. They’re compatible with a lot more smart home brands and will give you a more exhaustive smart home experience. Plus, you’ll still be able to use your Ring devices with the hubs.
