Ring doorbell is a popular home security device keeping an eye on all happenings around your home working through your home Wi-Fi network. With its smart features and high-quality video, you can easily keep track of your home, no matter where you are.
But, you may be curious to view all your Ring doorbell cameras in one place when you have multiple Ring cameras installed at different locations. You can’t primarily view your Ring doorbells’ videos on your device at one time easily.
But, Ring introduces you its ‘Camera Preview’ (or ‘Snapshots’) feature from the Event History Timeline which takes snapshots at different timings from your Ring camera and they can be viewed on your device via Ring.com.
How do I activate Snapshot Capture?
To enable the Snapshot Capture feature, follow these instructions:

If you are a developer or at least understand API’s functionality, you can use API to get customized multi-view from your Ring app to your device screen.
Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) delivers videos to multiple IP networks which can be controlled by you in person. Afterward, you’ll call “camera.startVideoOnDemand,” which will allow the camera to begin another video stream.
In your custom application, display the video streams in a multi-view layout, using a library or tool for video streaming and rendering.
Use the API to handle user interactions, such as switching between camera views or adjusting the layout.
But, this is after all a tough and technical solution which involves API programming knowledge and you can’t resort on this to use for 24 hours recording as it hasn’t been offered by Ring.
SmartThings is an app made by Samsung to support various internet supported devices such as Home automation devices. You can use the SmartThings app to view multiple Ring cameras on your TV and other devices.
- Connect your Ring camera to the SmartThings app: Make sure your Ring camera is connected to your home’s Wi-Fi network, and then add it to the SmartThings app.
- Set up a Multi-Camera View: In the SmartThings app, go to the “Devices” tab, find your Ring camera, and select the gear icon to access the device settings. From there, you should see an option to “Create a Multi-Camera View.” Select this option, and then choose multiple cameras you want to include in the view.
- View the Multi-Camera View: To view your multiple cameras, go to the “Dashboard” tab in the SmartThings app, and you should see the Multi-Camera View as one of your “Scenes.” Select the scene to view all of your cameras at once.
Note: Not all Ring devices are supported through SmartThings platform.
View Snapshots all at once | Snapshot Capture
Ring has made it easier to go back and find things which had happened on your different cameras. You have Event history which should have shown you everything across all your cameras.
Ring takes snapshots on continuous timings which may vary from 30 seconds to 3 minutes.
Now, you can check your Ring app and see recordings of different doorbell cameras at different timings. Just sign-in to your account and you can see all your cameras on your dashboard. Your Ring can stop recording the front view and will trigger on the detection of any motion. But, it will continue to take snapshots at equal frequencies.
If your account is getting locked out too frequently, you need to keep it refreshed. A simple browser extension Auto Refresh Plus will do this work for you automatically.
Open Multiple Browser Windows
Opening multiple windows from your computer may work well in case of checking all your Ring cameras at same time. It is basically a life hack and there is no technical thing involved. You just have to open multiple windows and open your Ring camera recording on each window.
