Contact Sensor chirp on close?

The base station chirps when you open a window or door, but not when it closes again?

Is this a setting I’m missing or a basic feature missing?

Go to settings,devices, alarm base station, then the sensor you want to alter.

If you mean these, those are app push alerts. With both those disabled, the base station makes an audio noise when you open the door/window, but not when you close it.

In your attached image, both open and closed alerts are turned off.

Correct. Configured this way, the base station makes an audio when the door is opened only.

If I enable either of those, I get a notification in the mobile app, but it does nothing to alter the behavior of the base station.

I, too, would like to hear a chirp when a door or window is closed. I believe a double-chirp on open is how it should remain and a single-chirp should occur on close.

We appreciate this feedback neighbors! At this time the audible chirp will sound for a contact sensor opening, but not for closing. This sounds like an awesome feature, and I’ll share these requests with the team right away. Thanks again for being the best part of the Community. :slight_smile:

Awesome, thanks! Our previous alarms did this, it’s really handy to hear things open, but then also to close again as well. Any change in status :slight_smile:

Any update on this? I too think a closing chirp feature is a must as most all other alarm systems I’ve used have that feature. Without it I have no way of being sure my kid or whoever closed the door on the way in/out without stopping what I’m doing and walking over there, or grabbing my phone and checking the app every single time.

Do you have a solution yet for this problem? I just migrated from an alarm system chirps both on opening and closing to the Ring system that only chirps on opening. I desperately need this system upgraded to chirp on opening and closing as againts the current system that cirps only on opening

Hello, Marley, I am seeing this thread as an ‘Accepted Solution’ but it has not been resolved! Could you please open the thread back up as unresloved? We need a true resolution to this!

Please keep request open. I just got a ring alarm system and I expected this feature to exsit.

I agree the impementation of advanced audible alerts really needs enhancements and more control.

In the mean time, I was able to create Alexa routines for each door to play from dedicated Echo devices. Which do exactly what youre looking for. Its a bit cumbersome to do but works. One routine Back door open, another foe back door closed. Another for garage door open/closed etc. It does work to implement but would be nice if ring could automate it as an option in the Ring enviroment.

It would also be great if we could get entry exit delays and alarm/siren features in the Echo devices as well.

Found a way to schedule so sounds dont happen from Alexa devices durring scheduled periods.
Using “Do Not Disturb” enabled on selected Echos. Solved my issues of motion announcements in my daughters room after bed time.

Please add the option to Chirp when sensors close! This is so common for alarm systems. I just installed a Retrofit for a 30-year-old wired system, and was dismayed that chirp on close is not yet an option for Ring (even though sending notifications to your phone IS).

I would love this feature as well. Just changed my service from wink and miss the tone on close. It’s nice to know the door is actually shut where someone leaves, a nice safeguard without having to go check. I don’t always have my phone in my pocket to see the notification.

Any updates yet? I’m surprised this isn’t a standard feature? My old, 10 year old security system had this.

In addition to alert on close, other alarms also repeatedly chirp or notify for as long the sensor is open. This is critical missing feature that is available on all other alarm systems.

I agree, this is a needed feature. 2 chimes for open and 1 for closed. It’s great that I’m alerted the door was opened but now I have to keep getting up to verify that it’s been closed.
