Ring Heat Sensor for attic or basement

I’ve installed the Retro Kit to my Ring Alarm and would like to add my two wired heat sensors to the system. The problem is that my current heat sensors are normally open switches. I’m confident that normally closed heat sensors would work with the Ring Alarm but it would be seen as a door/window. This would cause the police to be dispatched instead of fire should the sensor be tripped. It would be great if hard wired support could be given to both normally open/closed heat sensors including configuration as a heat sensor.

It’d be cool if we could use the floor and freeze sensor to detect high heats as well.

This would be useful in basement utility rooms where things like boilers are installed. This would make the “floor and freeze” senson more of a “climate” sensor.

It should be able to alert us if temperature rises above a set thresholds, or drops below a certain threshold.

floor = flood (typo in original post)

I would like to see a attic temperature sensor added to the Ring Alarm line. The wired alarm I am replacing has this feature and is a great safety feature since smoke/fire sensors are not recommended for attics due to dust and heat.

Ring could rebrand an existing temperature and humidistat sensor.

There are many z-wave sensors already being manufactured .

We have some good friends whose house was struck by lightning about 2:20 AM. The noise woke them, but they thought it was just a near strike and went back to sleep. Little did they know that the strike had started an attic fire (where lightning strike fires often occur) which raged in the attic above their heads for three hours while they slept. The fire finally broke through ceiling drywall enough that smoke entered their living space and triggered a smoke alarm. They all managed to get out alive, but it was a close call. The house is nearly a total loss.

I realize this request for an attic heat alarm is over two years old. My hope is that someone has solved this issue and has found an attic heat sensor that works with Ring. If anyone has ideas, please share. Thank you!

Please make heat sensors for the attic, garage, and kitchen. I have seen people online having problems with their insurance companies requiring these. This was mentioned in a thread in April 2020 yet there has been no solution created yet, so I am making another request. I previously had ADT and have hardwired heat sensors in the attic and garage, but they are not compatible with Ring except for DIY workarounds. Ring or another third party company, please make a heat sensor that is compatible with Ring.
