Hi, I tried this feature but it failed. I manually armed the system before I go to sleep and scheduled it to be disarmed right before I wake up early in the morning at 04:45 am but it keeps disarming at 23:45 at night.

Hope this can be fixed

“Slow roll out” eh? I’ve been waiting for this feature since I purchased my ring products. Any updates? Haven’t seen many, if any, software improvements from Ring.

Hi @RapidCity. What version of the Ring app do you have installed? This feature should have made its way to all users by now. This Help Center article here will have more information on Mode Scheduling.

When will the Mode Schedule capability be available? Under Settings I just have Modes with no Mode Schedule option??

The version is 5.47.0

Hi @grotvold7. Which Ring devices do you have? You’ll need to have the Ring Alarm system to use the Modes Scheduling feature, which will allow you to create custom mode schedules that will arm and disarm your Ring Alarm whenever you want. You can read more about Mode Schedules in our Help Center Article here.

This was a welcome feature. That said, make an Alexa Routine trigger for when the alarm is sounding. I have a rudimentary understanding of code and it couldn’t be more than a 15 minute task.

I have a Ring Video Doorbell 2 but still not seeing the new feature on scheduling modes under Setting

Hi @user8291. The Modes Scheduling feature is for the Ring Alarm system, not for your Ring Doorbell or Security Camera. I hope this clears things up. :slight_smile:

Like many of us, I have a lot of stick up cams and floodlights with a (PAID) subscription to Ring Protect and you tell us that to access such a BASIC feature as modes scheduling, we would still have to invest the Ring Alarm.

It is however obvious that your developers could correct this huge gap in just a few minutes while reassuring us that we have chosen a serious brand that does not neglect some of its customers…

Automatically turn off motion alerts when I’m home, please! Everything is already in place to make this happen. I’d like to receive motion alerts if I’m away from home, but not when I am home. I have geofencing turned on - it seems like there should be a way to turn off alerts if I’m within the geofence and on when outside of the circle.
When I had Ring integrated into SmartThings it worked the way I wanted it to - the only thing was that SmartThings would notify that Ring sensed motion and I would have to open the Ring app to see what it was. After dropping SmartThings, now my only option are to open the app and change modes, or set a schedule. My schedule isn’t routine enough to be an effective way to handle this, and having to open the app to change the mode is a bit inconvenient, especially when notifications could be tied to the geofence.
I love everything else about the product and I’m fine with the app otherwise. I’ll have my airpods in and step outside to walk the dog and get the loudest chime in my ear because I’m getting notified that I’m stepping in front of the doorbell - I’m aware that I’m in front of the doorbell because I just stepped outside to walk the dog. So that goes on for a while and eventually I turn off the sound on my notifications, but then I miss things when I am away from the house.
Please allow motion alerts based on geofence location. Thanks!

When will the Mode Schedule capability be available? Under Settings I just have Modes with no Mode Schedule option??

Hi @Queenslander. The Modes Scheduling feature is already available for the Ring Alarm system. If you do not have a Ring Alarm system, you will not have the option to set a schedule for the Modes on your system.

I use a primary and secondary nightly HOME setting to activate.

Was surprised that an manual AWAY activation going vacation was overrode by the nightly HOME activation. Huge safety concern bc my home was not secure like I thought. Switched from a 10 year old ATT system where this never happens

Can this feature be made to NOT override manual Away arming in some intuitive way?

It is a right PITA to have to remember to disable the Mode Schedules when going away.
