It would be nice to have the external siren bleep/chirp when the system has armed fully.
So you’re in the house, you set the alarm to Away. Then you exit the house in your 30s (or whatever you’ve set).
Once the 30s is up and the alarm now fully arms, the external siren briefly chirps/beeps once in response.
This means that if at this point, your phone is back in your pocket and you’re busy getting kids into the car, WITHOUT having to access the app you will still get a clear audible confirmation that the alarm has armed successfully.
At a later point, yes you could access the app to confirm again but whilst busy loading the car, this happening immediately would be useful imho and would not interfere with how the system functions.
Or a better solution, so you don’t drive your neighbors nuts, is after you take care of the kids, get in the driver’s seat, you pull out your phone, open the Ring app and you can instantly see what your alarm’s status is.

…and no, the yale I had previously didn’t drive my neighbours nuts at all. I’m asking for a discrete chirp not a full blown 104dB alarm
LOL - happens on every forum - there’s always one who doesn’t read the OP properly and then embarrasses themselves .
@DrGaffer I second that request. I agree, with handfuls of shopping and screaming kids it would be MUCH easier to not have to do anything extra or put anything down and simply hear a discrete beep form the siren.
Most other UK alarms offer this feature and adding it to the Ring (easy to do via a software update) would make a useful addition.
