Alerts when sensor left open?

I have contact sensors on my doors, with summer coming sometimes the Doors are kept open. I want to get an alert when a door remains open door x minutes (10, 15,30mins etc). MyQ garage door does it, wondering if possible with Ring. Open to using Alexa or ifttt. Suggestions?


I’m interested in this as well. Any Alexa or Ring notification for a door sensor left open?


This needs to be addressed. How do we submit an enhancement request? I changed from xfinity home to Ring assuming this functionality exists. I put sensors on my freezers for when the kids leave a door open for 5 minutes and I can’t do it with Ring!

This still isn’t a feature. Simple feature request goes ignored for year+

Still can’t do this natively on Ring or Alexa. WTF. Did they fire all their developers?
