I have seen this mentioned in other threads but am bringing it up seperately because I consider it to be the main reason i would not recommend Ring products to others.
The issue is that the Ring app which is the primary control for setting motion alerts from the doorbell (and I assume other devices) does not really control the device but only alerts on a phone or pad or digital assistant. This is not just a needed feature but a major flaw in the product line as I see it. When I turn off or suspend the motion alerts on my phone because I know I will be setting off alerts while working outside within range of my doorbell, my wife should not have to be receiving alerts on her phone at her studio and my pad or Alexa or whatever shared receiving device should not be announcing an alert. The notion that we should have to independently adjust every Ring app on every receiving device that we may use in order to suspend alerts is ridiculous and a total PitA! :robotmad: :womanmad: :manmad:
This is much more than an inconvenience. It totally undermines the functionality of the devices and should be addressed in future app updates. Unfortunately, we do not discover the issue until we have already purchased the devices. I hope that all users will complain until it is fixed.
