I am looking at installing a smart home security system. I want to be able to do the following what system is best in the UK; I like the fact that Ring has the alarm and doorbell but needs to find compatible lock. I have looked at the Yale connexis. All to be controlled by IOS.
Ability to unlock the door (from the same app as the doorbell)
Security alarm – preferably connected – controllable in the same app? If I let someone in when not at home, what happens with the alarm.
Future add ons – additional cameras to the doorbell
Thanks in advance
Hi @SamAmer. At this time, there’s no official support for using any smart locks with the Ring Alarm system in the UK, but we appreciate your feedback. With the Ring Alarm, you can arm and disarm the system from the Ring App or from the Keypad itself. You can then, for example, disarm the system when you’re away from home via the Ring App. You can learn more about it in our frequently asked questions here.
For the Video Doorbells and the Security Cameras, you can find our buyer’s guides here and here. Those will list out all of our Doorbells and Cameras along with their features and pricing so you can decide what would work best for your home. If you have any specific questions, I’d be happy to answer them as well!
