Yes!

I’ve said this for the year and a half I have owned my Ring Alarm. There should be a “silent arm/disarm” function as well as the ability to do “home and arm” with a delay so I can leave my home while the rest of the family is sleeping. This is basic functionality of traditional alarm systems. I would like the ability to trigger all of my arm/disarm functions to be able to be silent or not at the time of arm/disarm.

Yes, very much needed. Many people would benefit from not arming and disarming early in the morning when everyone is sleeping.

A very cool idea! A nice quiet feature without a “countdown” sounding indoors. :slight_smile:

This sounds like this a “Hot Idea” . . . with a similar post in the Ring Alarm forum with over 5, 400 views! ?

yes please Hate having to disarm and rearm the system to run out for 5 seconds because i realized i left something in the car. With the app control a quick enter should also be available.

you can do this with Simple Commands and Alexa. Setup Simple Commands with Alexa>Create a routine in Simple Commands for arming the system>create another routine for disarming the system>In Alexa, create a routine based on whatever voice command you want>the routine you wrote in Simple Commands will show as a scene in Alexa>write the routine to run the disarm scene>wait 1 minute>then run the arm routine. I’ve been using this for over a year.

@Sergeantpup , does this Simple Command with Alexa run this routine silently (no audible Ring countdown) as @miketemm (author) wanted to allow someone the ability to silently exit and then silently resume arming/monitoring while others in the house are sleeping?
