Link Siren

Allow all devices with a speaker to serve as a siren. Make them all link and allow for an easy panic button where all devices sound a siren when the alarm is triggered and on command just like the all “lights on” feature

This is needed its the best way for your home to receive the attention it needs while your vulnerable.

Agree. If all cameras with speakers sound the siren at the same time, will ensure neighbors take notice and the suspect(s) decide to go elsewhere.

Absolutely, I have the ring alarm and the sirens on my cameras do not engage with the security system. The sirens need to link to the ring alarm.

This would include Alexa Echo and dot devices.

Both Simplisafe and now Hive have the option of an external siren. If it wasn’t for the reports of flakey connectivity with the Hive sensors and the abuility to disable the Simplisafe system easily i’d concider them over Ring.

For me an external siren or utilising one of Rings other products to work like an external siren is necessary for the UK. The police highly recommend it and i’ve come across a number of insurance companies now asking about it.

If the other two companies resolve their issues before Ring or a partner release an external siren, I can see a number of owners switching.

Unfortunately, the Ring Alarm system can only currently activate the sirens on the Alarm Base Station, and Keypads, and the indoor non-weather-resistant Dome Siren. :frowning:

But you aren’t alone in wanting an external siren! Many others want an outdoor weather-resistant siren, or some ability to connect an exterior siren, or some way to have a siren sound outdoors . The more “Thumbs Up” Kudo votes they see there will better get their attention, increasing the chances of getting siren sounds outdoors. You should click the related links below and add your Kudo vote, if you like the requesting author’s idea (add your “Thumbs Up” Kudo vote on the left side of the author’s starting post), to help get the attention of the Ring Teams.

Hello @Jayfalcon22 ,

Ring has listened to all the Kudo votes on the numerous “Feature Request” board and the camera sirens can also now be linked to the Alarm Base Station siren! So now when the Alarm Base Station siren goes off, the Ring cameras (that have siren feature) can also sound off with their siren!

So, I immediately went to my Ring App to link mine also! But, I was briefly disappointed when I tried to do it because I did not initially see any change in the App. It initially appeared to still only make the cameras record when the alarm sounded . . . until I looked more closely. So, yes, the camera sirens CAN be linked now by:

  • Menu > Devices > Alarm Base Station > Base Station > Linked Devices > Alarm Sounding >

After selecting “Alarm Sounding”, this is where I was briefly disappointed because I thought it was still just to select the cameras to only record. Then I noticed the “Explanation-Point” Icon, just right of the “Camera” Icon. Now I understood that by selecting this “Explanation-Point” Icon, it links the camera’s siren to the alarm too! So after selecting “Alarm Sounding” then:

  • Select “Explanation-Point” Icon for the cameras you wish to sound off their siren with the Base Station > then “Save”.

Wonderful! Thank you Ring! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
