Hello, I’ve been using Ring Alarm for around a month now, and one of my contact sensors just triggered a false alarm because the door was pushed a little more toward the door frame while it was already closed. I’ve now set up entry and exit delay on all sensors (by setting everything to main door, which I didn’t realize before was required for entry/exit delay to be enabled). I’ve become deathly afraid of triggering more false alarms in the middle of the night and waking everyone in the house up and have a couple of questions.
- I’ve read that tamper alerts can also set off the siren and that there have been reports of false tamper alerts. Does it set the siren off immediately, and is there a way to disable it completely from setting the siren off, or apply some kind of delay to it to ensure there’s actually an issue?
- Also, I am nearing end of a trial period for Ring Protect Plus which gives me cellular backup when the wifi is disconnected. I like the cellular backup feature but otherwise have no need for professional monitoring. What happens when the wifi cuts off when I no longer have Protect Plus? Does it trigger any sirens or just a notification on the app?
