Preparing to Transfer

When you’re ready to transfer your Ring Alarm system to a new owner, there are a few steps you need to take first. First, you’ll want to make sure you have all the necessary information about the new owner including their name, address, and contact information. You’ll also need to back up any recordings or other settings that you want to keep before you transfer the system. Finally, you’ll need to remove your account from the app or website so the new owner can set up their own account. Taking these steps before transferring your system will help ensure a smooth transition.

Disconnect your Ring Alarm system from your Ring account

Before you transfer your Ring Alarm system to a new owner, you must first disconnect it from your Ring account. As the original owner of the system, it must be disconnected from your account in order for it to be transferred to a new owner.

To disconnect your Ring Alarm system from your Ring account, follow these steps:
1. Open the Ring app on your smartphone and go to the Main Menu by tapping on the three lines at the top left corner of the screen.
2. Select Devices from the menu and then tap on Alarm Base Station at the top of the screen.
3. Scroll down until you see Transfer System and tap on this option.
4. You will be asked to sign in using either an email address or with Touch ID/Face ID if this is enabled on your device.

Remove all sensors from your Ring Alarm system

Before transferring your Ring Alarm system, the first step is to remove all the sensors and detectors that have been connected to your base. To do this, please take the following steps:

1. Open the Ring app and select “Alarm” on the menu located at the top left of the screen.
2. Choose “Remove Device” from the more options menu (three dots) on each individual sensor.
3. When prompted, enter your Master PIN code to confirm. This is necessary for any modifications made to your alarm system configuration.
4. Confirm you want to remove device and it will be taken offline from your account
5. Repeat for all devices until all base components are removed from your alarm system and cannot be used any longer
6. When complete, you can now disconnect each device from its source of power (batteries or wires) and then move them out of reach in preparation for transfer, as they can no longer be used with your system.

Set Up Your New Owner’s Ring Alarm System

Transferring a Ring Alarm system to a new owner is a fairly straightforward process. The new owner will need to follow a few simple steps to set up their new system. You’ll need to make sure the new owner has the necessary security credentials, including the new owner’s serial number and activation code. After that, the Ring Alarm system is ready to be set up for use. In this article, we’ll explain the step-by-step process of transferring your Ring Alarm system to a new owner.

Connect your new owner’s Ring Alarm system to their Ring account

After dating the stickers on the alarm base station and contact sensors, it’s time to connect your new owner’s Ring Alarm system to the Ring app. Follow these steps to transfer your Ring Alarm setup:

1. Press and hold the pairing button on the base station for five seconds until it illuminates pink, then release.
2. Log into the new owner’s Ring account in the Ring App. Make sure that you are logged into their account, not yours. If you are signed into their account, you will see their name in a drop-down menu in the top right corner of the app’s home screen.
3. From within the app, select Settings > Add a Device to begin setting up your new owner’s ring alarm system. To do this, select “Alarm Base Station” as your device type and follow along with all of the on-screen prompts to complete this process with ease.
4. Finally, connect all of their contact sensors and motion detectors by selecting each individual device from within the app and following along with all of its associated setup instructions until everything is connected to their network without issue!

Install the sensors for the Ring Alarm system

Before the Ring Alarm system can be transferred to a new owner, the sensors need to be installed and connected with the base station. To ensure the sensors are functioning correctly and ready for activation, make sure they are placed correctly in their designated locations.

1. First, mark where each Sensor should be mounted on your door or window frames using a measuring tape and pen or pencil.

2. Next, measure the distance between each point of attachment for your Sensors and use one hand to hold each Sensor upright in its designated spot so you can double-check to make sure it fits properly on both sides of the frame.

3. Remove any existing screws from these spots so you’ll have additional space for your Sensor installation (as needed).
4. Take out the included 3M Command Strips from your kit (or use screws if desired) and attach all four pieces around your designated spot, making sure they fit perfectly in place around both sides of your frame before removing the adhesive backer paper.

5. Peel off all four backing papers carefully and attach each sensor where indicated, pushing down firmly while ensuring they’re straight at all times along their entirety.

6. Carefully realign each sensor after attachment using a level (or a smartphone spirit level if applicable). The necessary realignment may require you to slightly loosen or tighten the 3M Command Strip grip or reposition one or more corners of your Sensor depending on what works best with edges that are not perfectly even ~~for example, if there’s slight outward warping on either side~~ . Make sure that all sensor edges remain flush on both frames so that no gaps show up when pressure is applied upon it either from closing a door/window or from tampering attempts by an intruder entering through an opening .

7. Once complete, connect each sensor with its base station using their corresponding color-coded wires by plugging them into their respective outputs offered by the core hub; then sync everything together as per instructions provided in order to confirm full integration of both hardware units before proceeding further into activation/setup process initiated within corresponding app interface for enhanced security maintenance management control over device accessibilities & configurations powered by advanced automation features such as Smart Away Mode plus various alerts & notifications respectively set forth post installation process based upon user defined preferences linked with corresponding home reset devices etc …

Transfer Your Ring Alarm System

Transferring your Ring Alarm system to a new owner has now become much easier. With a few simple steps, you can now transfer your Ring Alarm system to another person. This process ensures that your Ring Alarm system is safely transferred from one person to another with no hassle. In this article, we’ll guide you on how to transfer your Ring Alarm system in the most secure way.

Log into your Ring account and select the “Transfer Alarm” option

Transferring your Ring Alarm System to a new owner is a straightforward process that can be done easily in a few steps. Before beginning the transfer process, be sure that the new owner has agreed to assume responsibility for the system, including any associated monthly costs.

Once you have verified this, here’s how to transfer your Ring Alarm System:

1.Log into your Ring account and select the “Transfer Alarm” option from the menu. You’ll then be asked to enter your current password and also accept a Terms of Service agreement.
2.When prompted, choose whether you are transferring ownership of just the devices or if you would like to move all subscription services as well.
3.You will then be asked for contact information (name, address, email) for the new owner so that they can create their own user profile and accept responsibility for their own alarm system moving forward. This language at this point will likely state that accepting this request requires agreeing to additional terms of service from Ring and that user profiles will switch owners as part of official record-keeping procedures with third-party security monitoring companies as required by law.
4.At this point, you will receive confirmation details about what was transferred over to the new owner and any remaining payments or balances due on existing contracts associated with account setup or installation fees – these remain your responsibility even after transfer of ownership completes successfully. The new owner may see prompts requiring them to verify creation of their own online user profile before full access is granted within their Ring application or website dashboard pages where they can manage settings associated with their newly transferred alarm system going forward.

Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the transfer

When transferring your Ring Alarm System to a new owner, you will be asked to affirm that you are eligible to transfer the system and have the appropriate authority. You will then be taken through the steps to complete the transfer. For example, you will need to enter the name and email address of your new owner and create a new account for him or her. You also need to indicate whether you’d like any stored video recordings from your original Ring cameras transferred over with the alarm system. Once all steps in the process have been completed, your new owner will receive confirmation that they now own and manage the former Ring Alarm System. If they ever forget their password or username, they can use this Account Ownership Transfer Information to reset their account information through our Account Recovery Page on
It’s important to note that phones connected to your existing Ring app must pair with the new Ring app for everything to work properly in terms of monitoring and video recordings; pairing ensures that sensors are connected with their respective alarms when motion is detected. Additionally, upon completing the transfer process any unused monitoring plans related to your original account may be used by either party at no additional cost; simply log into your My Subscriptions page of using either account owners’ credentials and select which plan you’d like activated for continued coverage with no additional cost charged for multiple accounts sharing plans within reasonable household limits (up two other accounts).


Transferring a Ring Alarm System to a new owner can be a tricky process, but it doesn’t have to be. There are a few troubleshooting tips that can help make the transition smoother. This section will explain the necessary steps to troubleshoot any problems you may encounter when transferring a Ring Alarm System to a new owner. With the right knowledge and preparation, the transfer should be successful.

Check if your Ring Alarm system is still connected to your Ring account

When transferring ownership of your Ring Alarm system, the first step is to ensure that it is no longer connected to your Ring account. This can be done by logging into the Ring app and checking to see if it is listed under “My Devices.” If it is, you will need to log out of the Ring app, remove the device from your account, and begin the transfer process.

To remove a device from your Ring account:
1. Launch the Ring App
2. Tap on “Device Settings”
3. Find and select the device you would like to transfer
4. Tap on “Remove” at the bottom of that screen
5. Confirm that you would like this device removed from your account

You have successfully unlinked your device from your own account and it can now be transferred to its new owner. Before transferring ownership of your system, please make sure you have answered any pending notifications or resolved any existing issues with the device before finalizing enrollment with its new owner.

Check if the sensors are properly installed

When you’re transferring your Ring Alarm System to a new owner, it is important to make sure that all of your sensors are properly installed. This means checking if the motion detectors, contact sensors, and smoke detectors are all connected to the base station and to their designated zones within the system. To check this, open up the Ring app dashboard and look for any red-colored boxes indicating that a sensor is not active. If all of your sensors are connected correctly, you should see a series of green-colored boxes indicating that everything is properly set up.

In addition to making sure that sensors are connected properly to their zones, you also need to ensure that they are physically installed correctly. This includes checking if contact sensors have been placed firmly on doors or windows and verifying positioning for motion detectors and smoke detectors. As an extra precaution, you may want to double check if door/window gaps around respective contact sensor(s) exceed 3/4th of an inch (1.9 cm).

Check if the new owner’s Ring Alarm system is connected to their Ring account

Before starting the transfer process, both the current owner and new owner should ensure that their Ring Alarm system is connected to their Ring accounts. To do this, open the Ring app and make sure that your system appears in the Devices screen. If it does not appear, please refer to the user guide that was included in your Ring Alarm box for further instructions on connecting your alarm to Wifi.

Once you verified that your alarm is connected to your Ring account, you can proceed with transferring ownership of your alarm system according to the below steps.
