COVID-19 and being at home so much more has brought out the need for some much better refined features. Perhaps I am daft but just cannot figure out the following:
- Home during the day and want to snooze the alerts. I don’t care if the camera records, I just want to stop the constant ringing. “Easy” you say using global snooze! NOT at all. I open the phone app and hit global snooze. That works great for the phone, but, the app on the iPad sitting on the desk continues to go off over and over, it works independently of the phone app, so, I got there and shut it all off to snooze. STILL NOT GOOD - the darn watch has it’s own install and so it keeps going off independently of the other two devices.
Turn it off to you say, so I do. STILL NOT GOOD, my wife’s phone and iPad and watch all keep going off, as the app doesn’t pay attention to my global setting and it’s independent for each user. DUMB DUMB DUMB. If I am the master user and I snooze it that should flow to everyone. I should not have to go to each camera and set up a motion schedule which has to be enabled and then disabled. Geesh.
- This is talked about ad-nauseum and for some reason Ring doesn’t want to address it, a global snooze for the darn lights at night so I can go out on my patio and sit in the dark with a cool drink in my hand without the lights coming on every time I twitch. I still want the other features, but, snooze should be global for everyone as I stated above and should include lights and motion alerts. I just go and trip the circuit breaker for the cameras to disable them 100% so I can have some piece and darkness at home for awhile, then have to set an alarm to remind me to turn them on. Not so cool.
