Custom / more quick replies

The ability to use smart responses is great, although not all the responses on their suit me and I don’t like having to enable it to automatically respond just for me to be able to have the smart responses button for use when viewing the doorbell. For example I’d like to be able to have it say “no one’s here right now if there’s a package leave it in the shed” and if we could create custom responses everyone would make much better use of the feature.

I agree! Nice topic! :slightly_smiling_face:

A suggestion to be able to prerecord your own smart responses. For example there’s a smart response that you can select that says about leaving your package at the door. Now personally I don’t want my package left at the door in full view of anyone passing by and a lot of the time I can’t answer my doorbell at work or I don’t answer it on time by the time I’ve seen someone is at the door. So I’d love to be able to pre record a smart response saying please leave my package in my stated safe place.

It would be nice if one could customize responses in a male or female voice, and also have the ability to reply using a male sounding voice, so that women and teens who happen to be home alone can reply to trespassers or to someone attempting to break in without making it known that they are possibly alone. As well it would be great to be able to trigger an alarm from the doorbell. Thanks!

Parcel boxes are becoming more and more common. Please could we have a quick reply on the ring doorbell app that reflects this.

Words to the effect …:

“We can’t get to the door right now. Parcels can be left in the parcel box by the door or leave a message”

Another suggestion is to have more Male voice responses that are lets say not so Friendly! RING - The reason we have these is because we’re concerned about rising crime… The last thing I want my door to say is… “Hi, I’m helpless - please come in and rob me!” I’d rather have something that says… " Yeah, give me a minute, I’ll be right there;" in a more masculine voice.

Sad to say that the days of Leave it to Beaver or the Waltons is long gone.

When will I be able to use my own voice on my Ring for quick replies.

I feel as if its more welcoming rather than being so automated

Can we have customisable smart responses, preferably that support text to speech

Wouldn’t it be a great idea if we could record our own messages? Such as « If you’re delivering a parcel please leave it in the parcel box » or similar? Have I missed something??


I was a Eufy doorbell cam user up until this summer when I decided to have a full Ring alarm set up.
An option that is very good with Eufy is that you can someone ringing at my door with a pre-recorded vocal message like : Welcome to house of the XXX Family, it seems we are not at home. If you have a package for us, you can leave it at the front door.

Is it possible to do ?
I heard Ring was working to integrate quick response that you can trigger from the notification pannel on your phone… but it’s all in english and robot message… So you can’t say whatever you want and it’s not your voice in there.

Also it would be important to be able to have the custom response play automatically when Ring is armed in Away mode for example.


Could we please enable the recording of a personalised quick reply rather than just having 6 pre recorded ones?

“Please leave the parcel under the bench or with my neighbour, thank you”

They would be so much more helpful to both us and the delivery drivers and people delivering post. (if I’ve missed this capability please let me know where to find it :blush:)

Please could we have British/UK English accented voice message options. Male and Female.

And customisable text to voice messages. (a.k.a. free-text input options)

And/or the ability to record our own voice message(s).
