Add Show in Carplay under Notifications for iOS devices

Please add the option to show notifications in Carplay while the iOS device is plugged in. Currently, if there is an alarm activation, there is no notification banner or sound if your device is plugged in to Carplay.

This is a highly important feature for me! I’m not talking about video that could be a distracting factor while driving, but a notification or even being able to answer your doorbell as if making a phone call in the car would be great.

Recently I suffered a breakin to my home and the person rang 4 times in a row just to make sure I wans’t home.

Since I was driving I never got any notifications, thus the promise of Allways home could not be true!

I totally agree. This is very important to be aware of a doorbell ring and audio answer it from Apple CarPlay. Any comment from the Ring team?

+1! Please add the CarPlay notifications for Ring, without it there is no way to know if someone’s at the door or if alarm got triggered when your phone is plugged into CarPlay.

Same issue here. From my research it’s an issue from apple and allowing distractions as you drive.

It’s safer when Ring is in CarPlay than urgently scrambling for your iPhone while driving. Don’t Apple and Ring get it?

I would like to be able to arm and disarm my house from CarPlay. Notifications would be nice but able to set the alarm status is more important to me.

Agreed. The ability to disarm my alarm as I pull into the driveway or arm as I’m leaving would be awesome.
