What is the benefit of upgrading my base station or keypad to the 2nd gen other than aesthetics?


Still no glass break sensors?

I have a Gen1 System - i need to buy a Range Extender - is it worth paying more for gen2 version? Is there side by side feature/power comparison for each of the new Gen2 products vs Gen1?


Thanks for asking, neighbors! @madraelle the newest Alarm Range extender is the same in operation, but does feature an easier to reach setup button on the front and an indicator light.

@Arkangel95, the new Alarm Keypads are also virtually the same in operation, with a change in dimensions and aesthetics. The most important new feature to note on the Keypad 2nd gen, is the one touch emergency medical button.

Check out our Ring Alarm 2nd Generation FAQ for more information on the new device differences. :slight_smile:
