With the new Quick Reply feature, visitors can leave a message with the doorbell if no one is available to answer the door. However, there is no easy way to stop the Quick Reply if you intend to answer the door, usually leading to an awkward moment when the message starts and you’re standing in the doorway.
For those with Ring Alarm, I’m proposing an additional setting in the App for Quick Replies, where you can designate a door contact sensor to cancel the Quick Reply. If the selected contact sensor triggers that the door has opened, the Quick Reply will be cancelled. This gives the Ring system an easy way to know that you’ve answered the door and a Quick Reply isn’t needed.
