Integrations Feature Request

I specifically purchased the Show and Ring Pro so that I could see who was at the front door before answering. My problem is the delay from the point that a person rings the bell and I’m able to view the live camera (a few seconds to ask Alexa to “show the front door” and a few seconds for the live video feed to appear on the Show. I would like to see a skill that will automatically turn on the live view on the Show when motion is detected or the doorbell is activated. I once read a hack, that I can no longer find, that suggests putting another Dot next to the the show with a script that says “Alexa, show the front door”, when motion or a ring is detected. I have a spare Dot, but this seems so simple that I’m hoping the skill has been added.

Feature Request-
Would love to see an Apple TV App similar to that of the OSX app.
-Notifications for rings/motion while watching a show.
-Ability to live stream multiple cameras on TV

If this becomes available I will replace all my Nest Cams with Ring Cams.

Are there any plans to integrate the Dome Water Shut-Off Valve? It works with many Z-Wave Hubs but not Ring.

How about getting the gocontrol/linear gd00z-4 (it is a Z Wave device) garage door opener to work on the ring system. My current system (not Ring) allows me to operate my garage door with Alexa or my alarm app.

File it under door locks. Unlock=Open, Lock=Close tilt sensor alerts the status of the door.

Since this is a DIY system, this option for controlling a garage door is super simple to install and works with non-smart garage doors.

Hi,

I have integrated the Schlage connect (z-wave integrated) while i can lock/unlock & notified on my Ring App for door open/close, 1) why don’t my base station chirp 2) during armed/home mode when the door opens can we trigger an alarm(perimeter security)

Thanks

Geofencing - I’d like to have the option of setting Ring alarm to automatically switch to Away mode when I get a defined distance away from my house.

Please add z-wave integration with NuTone NWS15Z smart z-wave switches.

Please add a function to the Ring Alexa Skill to cause it to implement Motion Snooze.

The Ring App implements Motion Snooze but the Ring Alexa Skill continues to announce any sensed motion regardless of Motion Snooze being set. It is pointless temporarily suspending Motion announcements to the mobile telephone when Motion Snooze is set while the Alexa devices continue to make Motion announcements. Please rectify.

I’m attempting to raise this Integrations Feature Request by a Reply to the lead Post on the Integrations Feature Request board. If this is not the correct manner to make an Integrations Feature Request, please Reply with clear instructions about doing this.

Jennifer_Ring unhelpfully responds to Posts on the Ring Integrations board with a suggestion to Post a request on the Integrations Feature Request board with absolutely no indication about how to do so.

Regards

Joe.

Hi Ring Team. I currently use Yale YRD210 locks and they work nicely with Ring Alarm and Amazon Alexa. I am looking at upgrading and considering YaleRD256-ZW2 as well as Lockly Secure Pro locks. As Lockly are not supported/certified at this time, I would be very intreseted in seeing Lockly be included on the supported list. Lockly locks are a little more advanced and have some features that are not found on the Yale, Schlage or KwikSet locks.

Z-Wave GoControl/Linear Garage Door Controller would be great. It comes with a tilt sensor and can turn just about any “dumb” garage door opener into a smart device.

I have the combo First Alert CO and Smoke detectors.
I have situations where I would like to disable JUST the CO or JUST the Smoke detection (ideally for an adjustable period of time, such 1, 2, 3 hours etc.), I realize that the detector itself may not have the capability, but the reporting to central dispatch could.

I would also like to see Alexa integration, so that a routine could be set up to announce which device is alarming to ALL of my echo devices. I have an echo in my barn and if I am working out there I would not be able to hear the ring alarm that is located in the house, but I would be able to hear Alexa.

Be able to silence the smoke alarm remotely via the ring app, without having to get out a ladder.

Thanks

It will open or close the door? I thought it just TOLD you if the door was open/closed.

Yes, this is a feature Nest has over Ring - the ability to sense when you are home.

We need this! The Ring definitely over-notifies. Need the ability to quickly pause notifications for a period of time also - not just at certain times of the day.

Pause notifications with Alexa voice command. We are inundated with notifications when the dogs are outside, or someone is bringing in groceries, or we are plowing/shoveling. We need to be able to pause all alerts - with a voice command - for a custom period of of time (10 min, 1 hour, etc).

Ring has a great alarm base station that has the ability to be so much more. If y’all could enable to zigbee chip, I would be able to replace my wink hub(which appeared to be going downhill anyways). The ability to move all of my current integrations over would be awesome. It’d also be nice to see integrations with Phillips hue and HomeKit. Althoug I know it’s been said that HomeKit is on the way. I have a workaround utilizing HOOBS that is awesome. It’d be nice to see official integration with HomeKit.

How about if you start with HomeKit, like you promised THREE years ago!!!

Here is a great idea that all Home Security Cam I have not seen it yet.
I’d love to see a Ring App and connect to the Automobile Screen either by Bluetooth or by Wifi similar to that Android/OS App that connects to a Smart TV.
-Notifications for rings/motion while driving, I don’t have to grab my phone and look for it.
-Ability to live stream and talk to the Ring products.
If this becomes available Ring will dominate most of the market out there. But I have little hope that Ring will do something about it before some else does.

Just found that my Ring purchased during the Black Friday sale doesn’t integrate very well with Alexa. This is a must have “Feature” and the only reason I went with Ring. Good thing I still have my old doorbell. Going to wait till my last day to send it back and hope this gets added before then.
