    How long does video doorbell data stay available in the cloud

    by 1woodward1 ·

    Tags: ,

    Without going into details, the police are investigating on my behalf a theft of property that happened two months ago. The police officer said to me that they can access video data from a “Ring” make video doorbell from the cloud as the information is not deleted. When I have looked at sellers information about video doorbells they state that it is only available in the UK for 30 days.
    Does anyone know if video data is deleted after 30 days or do the police have investigative powers to retrieve data after a longer period.
    Thank you in advance of any replies.

      Time to ask the company that stores this data.

      And the police. Any other source would be guessing.

      This is why many add in some memory card and when an event happens you copy out the video or disconnect the doorbell unit to preserve the “chain of evidence.”

        Thank you for replying. I can’t ask the company as they will just give me a customer answer. The police officer was fairly confident he could access video data as he said it stays in the cloud indefinitely. I was hoping someone could confirm this is true. You seem to say only the police or the company will know this answer.

      The data generally stored for around 60 days, but it can also get deleted earlier to make room for new data storage.
      The company might provide the data if it’s for legal purposes, according to the details provided.
