How Do I Find My Ring Doorbell IP Address?

Every device on your home network has its own IP and MAC address. The MAC address is the device’s internal network address, while the IP address is used by all devices on the same network.

The only difference between IP addresses is the last few digits, which ensure that devices don’t interfere with each other. But sometimes it can be challenging to find the IP address of a specific device, like a Ring Doorbell.

Luckily, there’s a third-party app that can help you with this. If you want to learn more, keep reading.

Installing the Fing App

The Fing app is a super convenient tool for managing your network. It lets you see all connected devices, detects any unauthorized access, checks your signal strength, and provides information about IP and MAC addresses.

What’s great is that the Fing app is also the best way to find the IP address of your Ring Doorbell. Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Download the Fing app from the Play Store (for Android) or the App Store (for iOS).
  2. Launch the Fing app.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up the app.
  4. Connect to your home or business network so that Fing can collect all the necessary network data.

Once you’ve set up the Fing app, you’ll see your entire network listed on the app’s home screen. You can switch between different networks and check which devices are connected, including your Ring Doorbell.

Finding Your Doorbell’s IP with Fing

Once you’ve made sure that the app is installed and working correctly, you can easily search for your Ring Doorbell’s IP address. The process is simple. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open the Fing app.
  2. Wait for the home screen to load your network setup.
    Note: Your network setup includes your router and all connected devices like phones, computers, and smart devices.
  3. Locate your Ring Doorbell from the list.
  4. The IP address will be listed below it.

Since all your devices are connected to the same network, the first three sections of the IP address are always the same. Only the last section will have different numbers.

How to Identify Your Doorbell in the List

Finding your Ring Doorbell on the network list can be tricky if there are many devices without identifiable names or named by their IP address.

If there’s only one unnamed device on your network, it’s likely the Ring Doorbell. But what if there are two or more unknown devices? That’s where things get inconvenient. So, what can you do?

The solution is simple – Fing allows you to identify the device using its MAC address. All you need to do is find the MAC address of your Ring Doorbell, and you’ll have the IP in no time.

Step 1: Find the MAC Address of Your Doorbell

The MAC address is the unique ‘hardware’ address of your device that enables your Ring Doorbell to transfer data, such as video and sound, to other apps. It’s different from the IP address and helps you identify your Ring Doorbell on the Fing app.

The easiest way to find the MAC address of your Doorbell is to check the back of the device. You’ll find important information like the serial number, SKU, and product details. The MAC address should be located in the middle, above all the other information.

Hey there! So, if you’re looking for the MAC address on your Ring app, I can guide you through it. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. First, open the Ring app on your phone.
  2. Next, tap on the ‘more’ icon located at the top-left corner of your screen.
  3. From there, select ‘Devices’.
  4. Now, go to ‘Device health’ where you’ll find some important information. Take a look at the image below for reference.

  5. Under ‘device details’, you’ll spot the MAC address. See the image below if you need help finding it.

Once you’ve got the MAC address, make sure to write it down. Then, you can proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Find It on Fing

If you want to view the network details, including the MAC address, of all listed devices, you can use the Fling app. Just follow these instructions:

  1. Start by opening the Fling app.
  2. Select one of the unknown devices.
  3. Within the ‘Network Details’ section, you’ll find the MAC address.
  4. Compare it with the MAC address you wrote down earlier.

If the addresses match, then you’ve found your Ring Doorbell. Simply go back and take note of the IP address under the device’s name. However, if they don’t match, don’t worry! Just repeat the process with the other devices until you find the matching address.

Embrace the Third-Party Apps

Unfortunately, there’s still no easier way to check your Doorbell’s IP address without using third-party apps. However, these tools offer you a lot more than that.

For instance, if you go ahead and install Fing, you’ll gain access to a powerful tool that lets you monitor your entire network. Not only that, but you’ll also receive notifications about any suspicious activities and have all the necessary information about your device’s connection.

One thought on “How Do I Find My Ring Doorbell IP Address?”

Wow, it feels like people never proofread their so-called “professional” web articles, right? What happened to peer review? I mean, come on, “Fing” isn’t even a word! Any decent word processing software could’ve caught that mistake. It’s just lazy, to be honest.

Jumus says:

Actually, “Fing” is the name of a network app available on both the Google Play Store and App Store. Did you even read the article?

Not Syd says:

Wow, do commenters ever double-check if something isn’t a typo? What happened to common sense? Sure, “Fing” isn’t a real word, but it’s the name of the app the entire article is about. People these days, huh?
