Retro fit ability to program HOME button to bypass motion automatically


  1. Will the Blue-tooth be used to pick up on the existing alarm non-wired devices?

  2. Will that allow the devices from the existing alarm company to be listed on the Ring App as individual doors, windows and motions sensors?

  3. Can we program HOME (STAY) so that everytime we press HOME it automatically bypasses motion sensors on our existing motion sensors

Hi @user27564. To clarify, the Ring Alarm Retrofit Kit allows you to connect working wired contact sensor zones from a conventional wired alarm system to your Ring Alarm. It does not connect to any third party devices wirelessly, and it groups your wired contact sensors into zones rather than individual sensors. You can find answers to frequently asked questions about the Retrofit Kit here, and information on which wired alarm zones are compatible with the Retrofit Kit here.

There is no automatic bypass feature within Modes, but you can choose which sensors are monitored in each Mode. With the Retrofit Kit, this would be on a zone by zone basis rather than the individual sensors. If you have any further questions about the Retrofit Kit, please give our support team a call at one of the numbers available here. If you are outside of the US, please visit here to see how to contact support.
