Manually Increase Ring Live Timeout Duration

It would be helpful to have the ability to manually increase the timeout duration applied to Ring cameras.

Here’s my primary use case:

As a parent, I wake up early to exercise. The room in which I exercise has a TV screen. I load up my living room Ring camera to display on that TV so that I can see if the kiddos have gotten out of bed and are wandering about. If I were able to increase the timeout duration from ten minutes to, perhaps, sixty minutes max, I could rely on the camera during the exercise.

The Ring camera is not a good baby monitor and it doesn’t try to be. But, with an increased timeout duration, it could make for a very useful “young child monitor” since children age 3ish-6ish are certainly capable of independent play but parents can’t always be in the same room.
