Hey @Egle - welcome to CF đź‘‹

There is no official integration between Ring and Apple HomeKit.

However you might want to look at using something like Homebridge:


Essentially it takes a bit of setup but it lets you connect your Ring devices to Apple.
If it looks a bit tricky, there's a "slightly easier" version that they ask you to pay for but I believe can be downloaded for free as it's a "pay what you want" kind of deal, called HOOBS:


Out of the two, I would pick Homebridge over HOOBS personally. You'll need something like a Raspberry Pi or a 24/7 PC to run either of these.

If you want to get really advanced you can give HomeAssistant a spin but it might be a bit much if you're new to this kind of thing. HomeAssistant comes with Homebridge built in though.

Let us know how you get on!
