Ring Alarm Sirens

I have been looking for a Siren that I can use outside of my home with my Ring Alarm System,beside the Dome Siren.

Any help?

Hello @RODRICH60 ,

Unfortunately, the Ring Alarm system can only currently activate the sirens on the Alarm Base Station, and Keypads, and the indoor non-weather-resistant Dome Siren. :frowning:

But you aren’t alone in wanting an external siren! Many others want an outdoor weather-resistant siren, or some ability to connect an exterior siren, or some way to have a siren sound outdoors . Ring created an additional forum room called the " Feature Request Board." Ring Owners, “Ring Neighbors”, can write or see what suggestions or new features other Ring Neighbors would like one day to have incorporated. You can give a “Thumbs Up” Kudo if they too want this feature. The Feature Request Board forum is where Ring Team look to see what improvements people might want. And the more “Thumbs Up” Kudo votes they see there will better get their attention, increasing the chances of them providing that request. You should click the related links below and add your Kudo vote, if you like the requesting author’s idea (add your “Thumbs Up” Kudo vote on the left side of the author’s starting post), to help get the attention of the Ring Teams.

Hello @RODRICH60 ,

Although this is not a “stand-alone” outdoor siren, Ring has listened to all the Kudo votes on the numerous “Feature Request” board and the camera sirens can also now be linked to the Alarm Base Station siren! So now when the Alarm Base Station siren goes off, the Ring cameras (that have siren feature) can also automatically sound off with their siren!

So, I immediately went to my Ring App to link mine also! But, I was briefly disappointed when I tried to do it because I did not initially see any change in the App. It initially appeared to still only make the cameras record when the alarm sounded . . . until I looked more closely. So, yes, the camera sirens CAN be linked now by:

  • Menu > Devices > Alarm Base Station > Base Station > Linked Devices > Alarm Sounding >

After selecting “Alarm Sounding”, this is where I was briefly disappointed because I thought it was still just to select the cameras to only record. Then I noticed the “Explanation-Point” Icon, just right of the “Camera” Icon. Now I understood that by selecting this “Explanation-Point” Icon, it links the camera’s siren to the alarm too! So after selecting “Alarm Sounding” then:

  • Select “Explanation-Point” Icon for the cameras you wish to sound off their siren with the Base Station > then “Save”.

Wonderful! Thank you Ring! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
