Saving the latest Ring Door Bell video locally

Just wanted to confirm, you do not pay for a subscription service for your Ring?

You are correct. I do not play Ring anything. I’ve probably had my Ring Pro for 2 years now.

Ohhh, I have a Ring 2. I’ll bet you that is why yours works.

OK, I’m brand new to Home Assistant, and I don’t even know how to log into the app, I would really like to use this script but as I said…I’m a noob!

Does anyone know if I download the videos and store them locally on the rpi, if that will get them to playback smoothly or is that a limitation of the rpi hardware. Right now I have a picture glance card but when I hit play it plays at 1/4 speed.

Hi, I know this doesn’t help with the Ring video storage. But I have been using Wyze and there is some free storage and the device has an uSD slot.

Can anyone confirm if this still work as of today?

Wish you could walk me through what you did I also have a ring pro

I’m going to recommend against this. It may have been a coincidence, but a week or two after I enabled this I lost access to my Ring video feed in Home Assistant! It really scared me, so I disabled it. My video feed came back… I don’t know if they throttled me for the rest of the month or what. But I’m not going to chance losing my feed again.

I might considering a DIY video doorbell someday that would allow me to archive my video. I just saw @pinkywafer created one with ESPHome. I’d love to know more about that project.

Is there a script I can use for IOS so I can save ring doorbell video on my IPAD?
