Doorbell chime through ring alarm base

Please add on a feature for the doorbell to chime through the ring alarm base! It makes a lot of sense and would be nice to be rewarded for being loyal to one system! Thanks.

I’ve had a ring doorbell for about a year, and just purchased the full security system - I thought it was a given that the doorbell chime would come through the base. Amazed that they haven’t done this, it seems like it would be a very quick programming change. I’ve spent hundreds of $$ on this system, it’s offputting that I need to spend yet more money to buy a Chime, when my base has a loud speaker in it already.

Agreed, can’t understand why this has to be a request? Surely this is an obvious feature that should easily integrate.

This makes me feel taken advantage of as a customer. No reasonable person expects to have to purchase additional components to make the doorbell work like a doorbell. The base station already chimes when doors/windows open - I’m no engineer, but I’d wager that it would not be difficult for Ring to make the doorbell chime through the base station. What’s worse is that you know they thought of this, but they decided not to do it, presumably so they could sell more chimes.

Just installed a ring alarm, and was astounded to find out the doorbell doesn’t ring through the keypad or base station, but every other alert does…

This is something ring needs to integrate.

I also recently purchased a full 8 pc security set that came with a doorbell and assumed that the bell would ring through the base station since it has a speaker and sends the alarm if triggered. I’m a little perterbed that I have now go and purchase an additional item.

Agreed… i am amazed that my doorbell wouldn’t ring though the base station. Please add this feature.

Went to figure out how to set this up in the configuration and realized it wasn’t even an option. Seems like an obvious “should be available” feature. I think it’s a bit shady; I don’t need a chime for any other reason, and I simply don’t want yet another device in my front room, but it’s seeming pretty clear why this isn’t a standard feature.

I was very surprised this didn’t exist. Seems like a stupid oversight to build something that makes an audible alarm sound, yet can’t chime for the system’s doorbell.

Still not working together with base station. Really poor design. This is only about $$!

Yes. We need this. I put my base station where the old doorbell used to be. Now the only person that can hear the doorbell is the person pressing it.

This is the most obvious lack of functionality that I can imagine. Please developers, hook these two up. There’s absolutely no reason to force your loya; customers to buy a chime product when it’s simply not needed.
