When leaving the house I will frequently have my front door open while getting ready to go. When trying to arm the Ring alarm it reqests I bypass the front door contact sensor. I thought I would try this and see if the sensor starts working once I closed the door. Sadly it doesn’t and remains bypassed. Also it doesn’t seem to shaow anywhere in the app it is bypassed.
Every other alarm system I have used will allow your entry/exit sensor to be in open state while setting the alarm. If of course you don’t close that sensor before arming completes the alarm will trigger.
Please offer an ignore option in addition to bypass, so the sensor starts working when the alarm finally sets. Or simply show a warning to close the entry/exit sensor or the alarm will sound after countdown. Also make sure the app clearly shows any bypassed sensors.
It is daft forcing me to close the door just to arm the alarm, it should allow you the countdown time to close it.
