Outdoor Contact Sensor Triggering Doorbell Camera

I received my outdoor contact sensor that I ordered for my gate. I’d like to be able to link that sensor so that when the gate/sensor opens, the doorbell camera begins recording.
I’m not seeing any way to do that. I think it would be a great feature to have as an option. Anyone have an idea or can @ring get this feature added.

Hi @I3lazen. While you can’t set your Ring Doorbell to begin recording based on a specific Contact Sensor or Morion Detector, you can set it to start recording when the Ring Alarm is triggered. You can find more information on the Linked Devices feature for this in our Help Center Article here. I’ve also moved your post over to our Feature Request board so other neighbors can comment and share interest in this suggestion as well. :slight_smile:

Seconded. More generally, the ability to pair/link any contact sensor with any ring camera. I have indoor and outdoor contact sensors that I’d like to pair with my ring indoor and outdoor cameras so that they record when stuff is opened.

I have a front gate that I don’t set to trigger alarms when opened because your parent company has a tendency to deliver packages at all hours of the day :-). However, I would like to have my ring doorbell and floodlight cameras start recording when my Amazon delivery person opens my front gate.
