IFTTT - hardwired video doorbell not supported?

I’ve just updated my doorbell to a hardwired video doorbell, but found when I tried to connect the doorbell ‘ring alerts’ to my system using IFTTT, the new doorbell does not show up in IFTTT, but does for ‘motion alerts’.
The Ring IFTTT applet has worked fine for years, with my old Ring doorbell, so why is it not working with the hardwired video doorbell?
I need to get this working, as it’s the only way I can interact the doorbell into my home security/lighting system.

Same here, cant get my new hardwired doorbell to show as a doorbell in IFTTT, just as a motion detector.

Hi there, neighbors! We’re always striving to bring you the best customer experience. While API integrations like IFTTT have limited functionality with Ring, we do not officially support these integrations. Please reach out to IFTTT for troubleshooting assistance.

To learn more about how IFTTT works with Ring devices, please check out their website here.

Glad this is not just me. I have been trying everything, unpaired - repaired. Still just a motion sensor! Surely the ring function is its staple function!

I appear to have the same issue with the ring doorbell wired, I raised a support ticket with IFTTT and there response was that this is a issue with the Ring API and not IFTTT, there response is below.

“ The list of devices shown in the dropdown is coming directly from the Ring API, which we have no control over. I would recommend reaching out directly to Ring, as they may be able to provide more insight into why this particular device is showing in the wrong dropdown.”

Even the applets that I am assuming were submitted byRing do not list this particular doorbell model, I don’t have another rind doorbell model to confirm though.

Please, integrate Ring Doorbell Wired with the IFTTT! It is a very useful! You must support your new device, don’t you? :angry:

Please support wired Ring

Another request for IFTTT support for the Ring Doorbell Wired. Pity current applet only works withthe motion sensor aspect of the Ring Wired doorbell.

Same problem here: Ring Video Doorbell Wired does not show up in the „New Ring Detected“ trigger, while it does in „New Motion Detected“.
Kindly fix that…

I am fed up with this. Ring won’t connect to Google Home any more. The wired doorbell won’t even work with IFTTT as an intermediary service. I feel like a victim of corporate competition here. This is the 21st century and still some vendors are trying to lock users into their ecosystems when most technologies are heading for open source and interoperability. I’m sending my Ring Wired back and getting a Nest doorbell - I feel deceived to be frank.

The wired doorbell is enabled as a new ring detected option for me. I first had to choose my doorbell under ‘New motion detected’, then select back and then ‘New ring detected.’ Your wired doorbell should now appear in the drop down box.

@njmj74 You’re a genius. I was so frustrated with the doorbell before this but it’s now working well with my existing setup. Got it for just £5 in a Black Friday sale, after cashback, so was annoyed at the idea of having to get a nest doorbell for £150 just to get one that worked with IFTTT. Thanks again for posting your solution here - I am sure it will benefit a number of people.
