Activate Siren on all Camera’s and Alarm

It would be very useful and handy if there was a feature to sound the siren on all the installed camera’s and alarm within one location. I have multiple cameras and have always thought that it would be good to have a feature to turn on all the sirens simultaneously if needed to alert neighbours of a issue or scare someone away.

A number of people have been asking for the same thing for a long time.

You’d expect this to be a no brainer but ring seem to have other ideas.

I was actually flabbergasted to find that this wasn’t already the case, Ring you are absolutely missing a trick here and this has to be such a simply linking of your products that it’s simply unbelievable it doesn’t already happen

Agree this would be a great addition

I concur, this feature is highly desirable and needed. With the Alarm system inside and 4 floodlights/cams outside, having the ability to sync the activation of the outside sirens to the base station alarm would add an additional layer of notification.

In fact, take the up-grade a step further. Since the floodlight cams are hardwired, in additional to the outside sirens activating, the floodlights could begin flashing also.

Voting for this feature as well.

Yes indeed. One of the things missing from the current Ring alarm that I had on my previous integrated system is an outside alarm. It would be excellent if we could blast the sirens of all our outdoor ring cameras if the ring alarm is triggered.

I agree, this is an obvious missing feature. I think there may be more to it than they just didn’t think of it. It is on a white board somewhere. We just want it now.

This has been said elsewhere, but let’s say it again. A lot of people want this feature. It will sell outside and inside cameras with sirens and it will sell alarm systems.

I have a Ring Alarm but don’t have any Ring cameras, yet. This feature would be a good selling point to add a couple Ring floodlight cameras, especially because there’s no external siren with the Ring Alarm and the internal one isn’t really that loud.

so I agree having a base station alarm condition activate the siren on external Floodlight Cameras is a great idea.

also agree with GNPHiker’s suggestion to additionally flash the hardwired floodlight cam lights on an alarm condition. This would be great additional external notification of an alarm. Perhaps it could be a configurable option to flash the lights or just turn them on steady when an alarm occurs.

I certainly Agree.

This gets my vote!

This is the only thing holding me back from purchasing a Ring alarm system, come on ring you’re missing a trick here!

Ring needs to offer additional sirens, including outdoor sirens. Or/additionally, just provide a relay or smart plug to provide power to 3rd party sirens when the base alarm activates. I am protecting rural property and need loud sirens to deter thieves and alert neighbors 200 yards away. If anyone can point me to an existing solution, I would greatly appreciate it.

Gets my vote too. The one feature I would like is an external noise of some sort should the alarm go off.

I am also expecting this feature. It should be standard feature.

Agreed with this request, it would be great if when the alarm panel alarms the camera sirens activate too. A much needed addition.

I totally agree.

I agree too - infact, I am incredible surprised that nobody at Ring has come up with this feature - it’s strange to not have it included.

Equally I think it would be good that the lights could “flash” to identify the location - unless movement was detected whereby they would remain on to record.
