Omaha's First Ring Certified Local Installer Since 2021

Omaha Communications proudly designs and implements Alarm Systems, Security Lighting and Security Cameras from the Ring Security System. We can install the full range of Ring solutions including Doorbells, Cameras, Flood Lights and Security Systems

Ring is dedicated to creating safer homes, businesses and neighbourhoods. While Ring’s primary mission is safety and security it also can do a lot to make users lives more convenient as well.

Ring was originally conceived to “make the 21st century doorbell”. But, it is more than that. It is like “caller ID” for your door. The Ring doorbell lets you screen who is at your door, and decide if you do, or do not, want to talk to them. It’s kind of like “caller ID” for your door!


Security Cameras: Protecting What Matters Most

How Ring.com Works

Nowadays Ring is about a lot more than doorbells. Ring provides video doorbells, video cameras, smart security lighting and alarm system. Ring also stores your videos in the cloud and provides dispatch services to notify first responders (police and/or fire) in the event of an emergency. Contact us today to get started.

Common Questions

You do not have to replace your existing security cameras and alarms to install a Ring Alarm. The Ring Alarm can act independent of cameras. However, you may want to upgrade to Ring Cameras for the features. And if you have hardwired cameras you most probably can use your existing infrastructure for hardwired cameras. The advantage is you will have your recordings hosted in the cloud and access to the ever improving Ring interface and feature set. If you can already access your videos online you are already probably paying to “host” your videos on the internet. Since the fee for Professional Ring Monitoring includes unlimited hosted video storage for 60 days and remote access on your iPhone or Android device – you might save money in the long term by upgrading your cameras to Ring.

Omaha Communications does offer service plans which include an annual review of your system as well as recommended battery changes. Technical phone support is available for free from Ring as long as you maintain your Professional Ring Monitoring for the cost of just $100/year or $10/month. InPath can provide support plans where we provide either first level or second level support. Second level support means we help you escalate difficult support calls after you make an effort to solve them with Ring support on your own.

Professional installation and design are not required. Ring is designed for possible DIY installation. But, we recommend using one of our experienced professional installers and designers to get the most out of your system.

Your videos from any door bell rings, motion alerts or “live views” will be recorded and saved for 60 days. Your Ring videos are stored in the cloud for up to 60 days (in the USA). To keep important videos beyond 60 days, download them to your PC or mobile device. If you want to store a video for more than 60 days you can easily download it to your computer.

  • The standard charge installing a Ring Device (like a doorbell) is $74.95.
  • Installation for a doorbell includes:
    • Unwire and remove your existing doorbell
    • Mount, drill and wire your Ring Video Doorbell Pro
    • Ring app and Neighborhood app configuration
  • Exceptions (additional charges may apply):
    • Installations on metal, marble, or glass surfaces not included or may be extra
    • Hardwired ethernet installations (Ring Video Doorbell Elite) require an active ethernet port with POE at the point of installation
    • WiFi assessment and recommendation to optimize video performance
    • Note: You will need a working wired doorbell, with a doorbell transformer that reliably supplies 16V to 24 Volts. For best results, ensure a strong WiFi signal at location of installation.

The Ring does offer a device which will monitor your home or business in the event that it experiences low (freezing) temperatures or flooding while you are away. If these are activated you will be notified on your app so you can react. This will not trigger notification to police or fire.

A phone line is not required. Ring sends out notifications through your internet connection. Iff that fails it sends our notifications through a built in cellular modem that comes with the Ring system.

The alarm will notify the police or fire department if you subscribe to the Ring Protect Plus. The cost of Ring Protect Plus is $10 month or $100/year. With Ring Protect Plus you get Ring Alarm Professional Monitoring plus 60 days unlimited storage for your Ring video recording devices. You also get a hardware warranty on your Ring equipment if you buy the Ring Protect Plus services from the outset.

There are two ways to monitor smoke/fire/carbon monoxide detection. One is to use a Z-wave compatible detector. But, Ring also offers another very innovative solution. You can use your existing standards-based Smoke Detector in conjunction with a Ring “listening device”. When the listening device detects the sound of a triggered alarm it will notify the Fire Department (and you on the app). There are a lot of reasons you might want to have the freedom to select your own smoke detector. People have preferred brands. Some have preferred feature (such as spoken commands like “Fire” or “Battery is low”. And some houses are pre-wired with “hard-wired” Smoke and/or Carbon Monoxide detectors. The listening device also has a three-year battery life – which is longer than most smoke detectors.

No, the Ring Protect Plus fee goes directly to Ring.com.

  • The cost of installing other devices depends on the details of the configuration and thing like whether the device connects via hardwired Ethernet, WiFi, Zwave or USB. For a free estimate of an installation at your home or small business call us at 402-346-0200 for a free site assessment
