Integrations Feature Request

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.

Yes Ring. Add automations! I am running all of my smart switches/outlets on Samsung Smartthings to automatically schedule lights to turn on/off. We need Ring to add this capability to have all controls under 1 app.

The way Rapid Ring app works is really good and fast. Not sure why this isn’t just integrated inside the Ring app.

But same functionality should be made available for Echo Show, with an option to automatically show live view of camera or door bell when motion is detected or button is pressed.

Oh, and HomeKit…

We’ll never get HomeKit - that’s a fact.

But could we at least have Siri shortcuts to turn on/off Ring Alarm?

The Alexa voice commands for setting and deactivating the Ring Alarm were introduced this year if that is what you are asking for. this Ring help article explains hot to use the voice commands for Ring Alarm. https://support.ring.com/hc/en-us/articles/360020893671-Arming-and-Disarming-Your-Alarm-with-Alexa Note that disarming the Ring Alarm requires a pass code to work. This is pretty much standard with all alarm systems that have implemented voice commands. The same goes for unlocking a smart door lock or opening a garage door with a smart controller.

Thank you for your answer, but I’m not asking about Alexa commands, which are great for arming the system (Alexa, I’m leaving).

But when I am arriving at home, I wish I could simply say “Siri, turn off alarm”. This would simply launch the Ring App in the background and turn off the alarm.

In order to do this, Siri will require passcode or the corresponding device to be unlocked. I currently have this enabled with my smart lock, which detects me by geofencing and prompts me to unlock the door. I can also issue the Siri command to “open the door” which will do by simply looking at the phone (FaceID enabled).

Since HomeKit will never be implemented, it would be great if we could at least get these shortcut integrations. This is a simple enhancement to the mobile app.

I would like my Facebook Portal to automatically display either my front door or my back door camera when the doorbell button is pushed.

Thanks,
