Hi there, neighbors! The Outdoor Contact Sensor ships within the U.S. (excluding territories) and Canada, at this time. We appreciate your feedback and interest in availability, and will surely share it with our teams here. Keep an eye here on the Community or at for updates. :slight_smile:

With the outdoor contact sensor, do you also need the chime pro? Unclear if this is stand alone on a gate or shed.

Hi @KD5. The Ring Alarm Outdoor Contact Sensor does not operate off of wifi. For this reason, the Chime Pro will not aide in the Signal Strength. Instead, you will need the Range Extender that comes with the Ring Alarm kit. I hope this helps!
