In Ring Stick Up Cam Battery: why can’t i set the siren to sound automatically with motion detection?
Hi @Vincenzo. The siren on the Security Cameras doesn’t automatically go off when motion is detected as that’s not how it’s designed to function. You can manually activate the siren as a deterrent if needed. Do you have a Ring Alarm system set up with the Stick Up Cam, or do you only have the Stick Up Cam? If you have a Ring Alarm system, you can use the Linked Devices feature to set it up so that the siren on your Stick Up Cam will trigger if the alarm itself is triggered. You can read more about that feature update in our Community Post on it here. I hope that helps clear things up.
no I only have the cam. But what is the use of having the siren if it is not possible to activate automatically with the detection of a movement? can i buy the external siren and connect it to the cam or where to buy a complete ring alarm system?
@Caitlyn_Ring I think @Vincenzo raises an excellent point, and this is a fantastic idea. Can we put in a feature request for the Ring Spotlight Camera to have motion activated siren? It already has motion activated spotlight, so this only makes sense.
Yes, of course at this moment, it could become an excellent detail, against malicious people, a function could be extended with activation of the siren through a continuous movement, such as when someone stands and activates the movement of the camera for more than 15/30 seconds, the siren.
