When I found this thread my heart dropped. I assumed I was just missing a setting or something, but to find out Ring does not have this basic feature after just installing a $800 system is just unbelievably frustrating.
Like other users, because the way Ring works is so mind bogglingly counter-ituitive, my family and other guests end up not setting the alarm. We’ve had alarm systems for our entire lives and EVERY system has worked the same way, you open the front door ready to go, tap in your code, leave, shut the door and after the exit delay all the sensors arm. Ring however bascially ‘silently fails’ in this situation, your average user who hasn’t read the entire manual (i.e. all the secondary users of the alarm) does not understand the ‘sensors require bypass’ means that THE ALARM WILL NOT BE SET. So they just tap in their code, hit arm, and leave the house, assuming the ‘bypass’ message to be a non-critical error. So $800 of alarm just sits there being totally useless and the house is unprotected.
Ring either need to add this feature or change the bypass message to very clearly state “Sensors require bypass. YOUR HOUSE WILL NOT BE PROTECTED IF YOU DON’T TAKE ACTION!!!”
I could not recommend Ring to anyone based on this. Such a shame.
