Savant - Ring X

1. Requirements

This section outlines all prerequisites and requirements which must be met before beginning the configuration of the Ring device.

Before Beginning

Read this document in its entirety, and ensure that the following required items are available:

  • A Ring device (Ring Video Doorbell Pro, Video Doorbell Elite, Floodlight Cam, Spotlight Cam, or Stickup Cam Elite)

  • Savant Pro App for iOS and Android, version: 9.4 or higher

  • Savant Host with runtime software: da Vinci 9.4 or higher

  • Savant Development Environment (SDE / MacBook) running MacOS 10.14.6 or higher

  • Profile: Ring - (Entry and Security Camera Service: Ring Video Doorbell Pro, Video Doorbell Elite – Security Camera Service: Floodlight Cam, Spotlight Cam, or Stickup Cam Elite)

2. Licensing

One Ring Feature (SFL-RING1-00) License must be applied to the Savant Host via Savant Central Management (SCM) for each Ring Video Doorbell Entry or Security Camera device on the site prior to deployment and activation of the feature. Licenses are purchased via the Savant Store, then imported or transferred to the Job for the site within SCM. This section details the process for applying the required licensing to the Savant Host and assumes that the Host has been deployed, is connected to the Savant Cloud, and has been claimed and added to a Job within SCM by the installer.

Refer to the Savant Central Management (SCM) Reference Guide (009-1724-xx), available on the Savant Community for more information on SCM, Domains, Jobs, and cloud-based license management.

NOTE: Options within the SCM Licensing tab may vary based on user, however the general process for applying a license to the Savant Host remains the same. Example images shown in this section may not match the SCM interface displayed for all users.
