Hello, The Ring Video Doorbell Wired is designed to be something you can rely on to alert you for motions and doorbell dings without a paid subscription. Without an optional recording plan, you will still receive real time motion and ring alerts, as well as have access to the Ring Live View feature.
With the optional Ring Protect Plans, you have the ability to review, save and share your video recordings for as little as $3 per month. Here is a helpful article that provides more details regarding this service: https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/360030333671-How-to-Subscribe-to-the-Ring-Protect-Plan. Your Ring videos are stored in the cloud for up to 60 days (in the US). Here is another helpful article detailing how to save and share your videos with friends and family: https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001834066-Sharing-and-Downloading-Your-Ring-Videos.
