What smart home integration has been most useful in your Ring of security?
Integration with Alexa to auto-lock the doors when setting the alarm (via alexa only right now).
I love my Alexa integration! I have the Echo Show. Is that the same one you have @SonofLiberty82 ?
No but I wish I did! I have several dots and a echo plus. They work great for announcements and automations. Hopefully I can get a show sometime to test how that works with the doorbell and cameras!
Oh nice! Let me know when you do and I will personally help you get it up and running and integrated
If Ring would integrate with my Nest thermostats to set home and away mode, I would absolutely dump my other security system. Right now running both. The wife arms them as she is leaving, but with four Nest thermostats, she never remembers home/away. That feature saves me a lot of money since we are gone for long periods.
I’d love to see Ring/Amazon put away the pettiness re: Google and support Chromecast for accessing Live Video and Motion/Doorbell activity.
If this list of mainly economy-grade vendors can support video casting, then its obvious there is no technical reason that Ring/Amazon cannot:
- atomi smart
- homee Smart Home
- mydlink Smart
- ioe smart
- iView iHome
- KAFO Smart
- Logi Circle
- MCL DOMO
- Momentum Smart Home
- Panasonic HomeHawk
- Q-See Plus
- Smart K
- Swann Smart Security Camera
- TP-Link Kasa
- Tuya Smart, Smart Life
Ring and August locks would be very useful since it was announced at CES in January.
I do like that Alexa integrates with both so when I set my Alarm to Home, Alexa will remind me of what locks I have open
I would like to see better integration with Smartthings, for instance, when arm ring as away, turn off all lights, set thermostat to away.
