2 Basic Alarm Features that all Traditional Alarms Have

I’ve been using Ring Alarm for a year and a half and being that I was looking for support this morning on another question I had to make an account so I came here to drop in my $0.02.

  1. The ability to silent arm/disarm

  2. The ability to arm (with silent) “Home and Armed” and then have a delay before it is armed so I can leave.

So I’m sure I’m not alone. I leave the house at 5:30am. The rest of the family is sleeping and home. Before my new home, and of course my Ring Alarm install I had a traditional alarm and I could easily every morning: Silent Disarm, Silent Arm Home, Open the door, and leave. No announcements of “Home and Armed” and I didn’t have to wait on the way out to connect my app and stop to use that to arm etc. I’m at the keypad, I should be able to perform just that with ease.


This sounds like this a “Hot Idea” . . . with a similar post in the Ring Alarm forum with over 5, 400 views! ?

Please add this feature! It’s the thing I miss most about my old alarm system! Thank you very much for posting this.



It is really annoying to manually turn the volume down every night and morning when arming and disarming.

PLEASE is not that difficult

Please add silent exit feature. I’d been a ring alarm supported since the beginning and its still a paint in the butt that Ring and Amazon haven’t spend the resources to give Ring the same basic functionality as a GE home alarm and many other standard brands.

I’m a new Ring subscriber and am pretty amazed that this basic feature is not available. Please add this feature soon.
