How to Update a Ring Camera

Introduction

The operating system that your device runs on is called "firmware". Each device make and model has firmware that was specifically made for it. From time to time, manufacturers offer firmware updates in order to add new security, fix vulnerabilities, or other enhancements like performance upgrades.
