Rollout Info: You might not see this in your app currently because it is being released slowly to all Ring Alarm users. We appreciate your patience as we work to get this to all our neighbors!
We are always working to bring features to better your experience with your devices. Which is why we are excited to tell you more about the new Ring Alarm mode schedules update, learn more below.
How Alarm Mode Schedules Can Be Used
You can create multiple Alarm mode schedules to have your Ring Alarm switch to Disarm, Home, or Away mode at specific times. For example, if your family is early to rise and you know everyone is going to be out the door every morning by a certain time, you can create a schedule to switch your Ring Alarm into Away Mode at 6 am during the week. Even better, you can set multiple schedules for specific days to accommodate your lifestyle through out the week and weekends.
Setting Multiple Alarm Mode Schedules
You are able to set multiple schedules to fit your needs. All schedules will show in the Mode Schedules section in settings, this is where you can toggle them on and off or tap to edit them. If there is a conflict with any of your schedules an error message will appear in the Mode Schedules section and highlight the schedules in red which are causing the conflict. It is important that you resolve the conflicts immediately to avoid any mode arming or disarming confusions. You can do so by updating the current conflicting schedules time, day, or mode. You can also toggle the schedule off.
