I bought a GE smart wall switch (model 14293) that GE says is compatible with Ring Alarm. It pairs with Alarm Base and shows up under Lights, and the Event History logs when I switch it on/off. But there are no on/off switch controls in the app. Ring tech support says it appears not to be compatible, although they don’t have an answer for why.
Is the common experience even with the few switches on the Ring-certified list? Is it worth the effort to try to find one of these older models, or is Ring generally failing to support compliant z-wave devices?
For what it’s worth my goal is to group a wall switch to the lights of a Ring Floodlight Camera, since those have replaced our driveway and patio floodlights. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but having to use a logged-in phone to turn on/off lights seems inconvenient, especially when we have guests.
