I was surprised to find there is no functionality to automatically lock door locks upon the arming of the Ring Alarm. This is relatively basic functionality that is already available in ADT and xFinity Home alarm systems, and I am sure this is available in other systems as well.
To clarify exactly what I’m suggesting:
When I ARM my Ring Alarm system, the system should automatically lock all Door Locks which are integrated into the system.
The system already monitors and allows “manual” control of my Door Locks; I would simply like to have the ability to have the system lock the doors upon system arming.
Bumping this up topic up. It used to be available via Alex Routines and the dev team removed it. The whole reason I wanted the door lock was for the alarm system to control it automatically when home mode was armed. I’m disappointed.
Using the z-wave plus smart locks from Schlage why is there not an option for them to auto lock when the system arms. It seems like an oversight that they would stay unlocked when you are arming the system when they have the ability to lock remotely.
Useing feature with ring to lock all doors instead of using alexa. I have multiple airbnbs and apartment buildings, and rentals. I use to be in the alarm business and of course i can use dmp for alarm and access control, but rather use ring. And can combine alarm and cams all together and love the platform. But please create a feature for this because i cant create anymore alexa accounts. Thanks
I replaced my existing smart lock with one that is compatible with Ring only to find out that it does not automatically lock the doors when the alarm is armed. I feel like I’ve wasted $200+. Please enable this functionality which exists in plenty of other security systems.
You can do it with Amazon Alexa if you have any Alexa devices. Once you set up the device you can add a routine. Mine is named “arm ring” and i added lock door (Kwikset 916 already linked to Alexa) and selected both the Kwikset deadbolts. You use the Alexa app to name the locks and create the routine. I also have a disarm ring routine which is secured by a 4 digit code you can speak to Alexa
