Partitioning/sensor grouping/alarm zones

As a homeowner with an in-law suite, I want to divide my alarm sensors into two groups that can be triggered separately so that I can have the main house and in-law suite be set and triggered separately and both professionally monitored on the same account.

The primary solution proposed by Ring staff (having two base stations, with only one professionally monitored) is not acceptable to me as I want professional monitoring on both units.


Completely agree! i have the same situation. Most other home security systems are able to create partitions or seperated zones to arm/disarm/alarm seperately. I would imagine ring can easily do this with a software update. PLEASE RING include this option! i woudl even buy two base stations to have as seperate units completely, but they will are not albe to professionly monitor both! this needs to be adressed.


I have the exact same need. I need to be able to partition a couple doors separately from the rest of the house so guests can come and go without tripping the alarm. This could be as simple being able to create multiple ‘home’ configurations which include some sensors, and not others for different circumstances. If we could quickly select a configuration, this would solve a lot of the need. For example “Alone mode= motion sensors on. and all exterior doors armed” Guest mode- motion sensors off and guest exterior door off.

Agreed! Ring - please consider this one. I’ll gladly be a tester for you!

An alarm system should be able to have partitions/zones that can be enabled/disabled separately. For instance, a rarely used basement could be enabled even while the residents are home, allowing them the peace of mind that their home is protected from potential break-ins on the basement level.

Same type issue here. I want to monitor a door sensor on a detached garage to make sure it’s closed but I want it to alarm separately from the house door sensors. I don’t want a second base station just to do this. Ring, please provide a software fix.

Agree this one is important and probably not a major update. Need the ability to group sensors together for easy on/off with the alerts. When I’m away, all sensors are giving alerts. When I’m home, I disable certain door and motions detectors individually so my phone doesn’t keep pinging every second. Would be nice to click one toggle for a whole group.

Agreed! I have an outbuilding with an office and garage that everything is monitored and I even have a secondary keypad in there. It would be nice to be able to arm that when I am done in there for the night but leave the house disarmed.

It’s ridiculous this isn’t a feature already. I want to change my existing alarm system to Ring to integrate it with all the cameras I have, but I want the garage and gym to be a different zone, so that it can be alarmed during the night, when the house isn’t.

Us landlords need this feature, and being that we own multiple properties, we will either own multiple Ring systems, or switch to another brand system if Ring does not add this feature.
