More or Custom Chime and Chirp Tones in the Ring App

Please have more holiday chime tones. I had deck the halls and now it is missing! Why??? very disappointing.

@Boone Thank you for the suggestions here! I’ve merged these threads together :slight_smile:

Yes definitely this is required, currently there is no much difference to grab attention what door and window was open, I am searching for the same, Surprised Ring does not have that while other systems have that feature as basic

I have two Ring doorbells… One at the front door and one at the side door. The app only lets me set one round for ringing the bell, and one sound for motion. I should be able to set each doorbell independently, so that I know from the sound which doorbell to head to.

Also, Ring Chime devices should be able to have a different alert for each doorbell.

I would like to be able to use two different ring tones on my chime pro for each doorbell. I have two doorbells and need that feature to know which doorbell is being rung. I have s very large home and have one for the front door and one for the back door.

Update/backport the Ring Chime product so that it supports different ring chimes for motion and doorbell. NOT just the standard 2.

Why? Because it is confusing when you have changed thecamera motion detection chime so that each chime is different and represents a different area, this works on the Ring iphone App, but is not reflected on Ring Chime product - i.e. just the generic chime sounds and you can’t differentiate where it came from like you can from the chimes on the mobile phone.

Being able to integrate a chime with SmartThings for example amd have it ring a custom chime would tripple the usability of this product!

This request is related to other requests for more alerts-sounds for other Ring Video devices, like the Indoor Cam, Stick-up cam, Spotlight Cam, and the different variants of the Ring Doorbell & Chime devices. Yes, I agree for the need for more/different sound choices, to determine quickly which device was activated (without having to look at your phone notification, which can take some valuable time). Having multiple video devices inside and outside, and several doorbells, can make it difficult to determine which device it is (by sound alone) due to the limited number of available alerts choices.

Instead of having Ring pick alert-sounds for us, would it be possible to add an alert-sound called “Custom” and then provide a method for the user to “Import” a sound file into this custom slot? Even better, provide “Custom 1”, “Custom 2”, and Custom 3", etc. That way the user could import several different alert-sounds according to their specific desires/needs. There are plenty of Sound Files that can be downloaded free off the internet. And you could even make your own alert-sound file or alert-voice recording too! I bet some people will make some funny/unique sound files to use as their custom alert-sounds!

Is there anyway to keep holidays tones available throughout the entire year?
There are some I want all
Year long.

The chime options are limited. Specifically, a chime that is has a short duration and louder. For example legacy alarm systems from Honeywell use a short, sharp “beep beep beep”.

Hello @PeterC1 ,

Add your Kudo vote to the link below if you like the idea of having Customized App Alert Tones & customized Chirp Tones.

Hello @Zoupem ,

If you had a “Custom” option then you could import any seasonal/holiday sound or chime that you desire. You would not be limited to the choices that Ring selects, nor be disappointed when Ring removes that seasonal sound.

I just purchased an outdoor Ring camera to complement my Ring doorbell. After our first alert, I toggled between the two to determine which device was alerting me. Afterwards I tried to figure out how to have a unique sound for each device, like my smart phone has for individual callers or message type (email, text, voicemail, etc). Frankly I was shocked to learn that such a high-tech company as Amazon does offer this critical feature. C’mon product managers: make this feature available ASAP. Thank you.

Hello Ring Teams,

Any updates on this “Feature Request” topic?

Great idea! Also, if we could turn off the “Someone is at your front door” announcement after someone presses the doorbell. I just want to hear the sound.

How is it possible that Ring hasn’t fixed this major oversight yet? Even in the new Chime/Chime Pro versions?!?!

+1. More chimes would be amazing. The ability for us to add custom chimes would be even better!

Yes!! Would love the option to record a voice to attach to the sensors. Front Door Open, Sunroom Door Open. I cannot remember each sound I applied to each sensor and there are not enough choices

How hard could this be so hard? This should be a default feature available. Please make this possible.

This is the single feature that is stopping me from upgrading to ring. Also where are the 4K ring cameras? I wish arlo would figure out a nice alarm system. I want to use the same company for alarm and video security. Right now arlo is far superior on cameras with HomeKit and resolution. I need to change out my ring doorbell to them as well, but I was waiting on ring to update this feature first to see which way to go.
