Doorbell Pro2 Motion Warning Volume

The motion warning feature is, now was, an extremely good and useful feature.

All the guides and posts by Ring moderators all state that the Motion Warning volume can NOT be adjusted.

Since the last app update the volume is now linked to the device speaker volume. The only way to have it at the level it used to be is to have the setting on maximum. At this setting the delivery driver, who has brought your valuable parcel to your door with all the care of cradling a newborn, is liable to drop it when you appear to be shouting for all and sundry to hear where to leave it.

If you have it set at the level for a conversation the “Hi, you are currently being recorded” sounds like pillow talk. If you have to alter the volume of the motion warning why not have it separate like the volume for the doorbell ringer? Please rectify this very poor decision.

Hi @JustSomeBloke. As we value our neighbors’ feedback, we’ve created a Feature Request board. Feel free to add this and any future feature requests there. This will help us organize and share your requests with our teams here, as well as allow other neighbors to comment and add interest, all in one place. Feel free to link that post you made in the Feature Request board here so other neighbors who come to this thread can easily find your feature!

Thank you for your reply Justin.

I am new to the Ring Community so Solved must mean something different to the dictionary definition as the issue is still present and therefore unsolved. Could you clarify in another post?

Hi @JustSomeBloke. Happy to clear this up for you. As you’ve described, the volume is not adjustable. The solution is to add this suggestion to our Feature Request Board. I hope this makes sense.

Sorry Tom, thank you for your reply, however we appear to be at cross purposes here. I have not described the Motion Warning Volume as not adjustable, Ring Moderators have.

After the last app update and/or last firmware update for the Ring Pro 2 doorbell it has now become adjustable but is inexplicably linked to the Device Speaker Control for Two-Way Talk bearing in mind that once again according to Ring Moderators the Motion Warning Volume can not be adjusted.

Notwithstanding I have posted on the Feature Request Board that the Motion Warning volume has its own control slider, much like the Doorbell Sounds Slider not linked to the Device Speaker control, or be set at loud as it used to be with no control like other Ring devices.

I have had a look at the Feature Request Board and I can not locate a request to link the Two-Way Talk control to the Motion Warning Volume in the first place so if it wasn’t requested it looks as though Ring may be using the Pro 2 as a test platform. Please don’t, it wasn’t broke so didn’t need fixing.
