Activate Siren on all Camera’s and Alarm

I too would like to see an outdoor siren available. This would act as a deterrent more than anything. Most other security alarm systems out there have one, it lets the potential burglars know that the house is actually alarmed! I don’t think the small “ring protected” sticker you get to stick on a window is enough! ?

Another upvote. This should already be a feature. It’s a common sense sort of thing. Please add this long overdue feature.

Absolutely agree - a must have to really enhance security

Just set up my new ring alarm at the weekend and really like it. I can see how it is useful for the alarm to link to your other cameras and lights but the one thing I wish it did was link to the sirens on my other devices. The only sirens that goes off when the alarm is triggered are inside and from outside my house they aren’t very loud but if I could link the alarm to sirens on my outside devices this would then make a lot more noise alerting neighbors around my house meaning the authorities may get notified faster if I’m unable to check my notifications or anwser my phone for some reason. Please add this feature.

I’ve got my base station fairly well hidden, but would like to do more. I turned the LED ring lighting adjusted down to nothing, but noted in my research that it still comes on full brightness if the alarm is activated. Why! That just tells an intruder where it is. It’s still going to send out an alarm signal to monitoring, but the intruder is still going to destroy the unit trying to get it to shut off. Please give us the option of completely disabling the LED ring under all circumstances. Thanks!

When the alarm is triggered and the siren sounds then I can linked devices to also trigger my cameras. What would be great is if I could also link devices and trigger my 4 chimes distributed over my house to also sound a siren until the main siren is addressed. This would be beneficial for two reasons

  1. make it more difficult for an intruder to silence all the devices making a siren noise

2 the siren would be heard all over the house now just where the base station is installed. I live in a 3 story large house and if I’m at the back of the house the siren noise is not very loud, if it triggers the chimes as well that would be awesome !!!

The chimes are always plugged in so power should not be an issue !

Please implement this feature to enhance the kit users have already invested in

Thanks Ring ??

The Ring Teams notice the requests with a large number of “Thumbs-up” votes. You are NOT alone in wanting this feature. This and variations of this idea are already on the Feature Request Board.

UNITE and Thumbs-up VOTE! Get Ring Team’s Attention! :slight_smile:

When ring alarm is alarming, there should be a feature where all floodlight cams sound their sirens until the alarm is disarmed. The alarm should also activate a siren on ring chimes. Also, since ring is connected to Amazon echo, it should be able to sound a siren on echo devices too.

Spotlight cam and stick up cam both have a siren that can be initiated via a user in the app, yet can’t be integrated with the ring alarm. This should happen!

Hi,

It would be nice if a moderator for Ring Community could merge these threads together, rather than having and voting on multiple requests.

Just looking at the links Boone has posted there are 256 votes, with 1 thread having 116 votes.

As with all other feature requests we have no idea what the status is.

I did have a new feature request, to be able to view the status of our feature requests :slight_smile:

Agree, thumbs up for this!

I have posted a similar featrure request here to also trigger the indoor “chimes” as well so internally the sound is heard to hopefully alert all the ocupants of the property and chase the intruders away.

https://community.ring.com/t5/Feature-Request-Board/Alarm-Siren-linked-devices-to-ring-chimes/idc-p/58310#M2379

Yes I been telling RING for years to make an option to enable the sirens on cameras like the outdoor floodlight cams, etc. be able to activate during an alarm since the devices have sirens built in. Also why can’t the plug in chimes make noises like door open chimes and alarm sirens for the alarm not only motion and doorbell button pushes. Also the reverse, allow the alarm base station to be able to make the motion sounds for the other cameras like doorbells and floodlight cams, etc. and doorbell button pushes.

Can I request please that all Stick Up Cam built in alarms can be linked to the ring alarm and that they sound when the main alarm goes off? The alarms on the stick up are pretty useless unless they are able to go off with the main alarm, especially if you’ve a few installed around your property.

You can already link devices to start recording when the alarm goes off and I think the alarms sounding as well would be cool!

Hi, is it possible to add an all linked panic button to the app that will enable all sirens to sound simultaneously?

I agree the app needs a panic button that will simultaneously enable all linked device sirens.

Hello @icadam , Yes, the Spotlight, FloodLight, Stick-up, and Indoor cams all now have the siren available. Others have been requesting the feature that you are looking for, with some slight variations. But you can see that you aren’t alone!

There are also many similar posts in other Ring forums, but now Ring Teams look for request here in the “Feature Board Request” forum, and so I did not include those other too-numerous links. I just linked only “Feature Board Requests.”
