Thermostats that work with Ring

I have a wifi thermostat that worked on a previous system. Is it possible to intergrate this to the Ring? If not, is there any that work with Ring?

Hey @invman! At this time, we do not have a Ring branded or third party thermostat that works with our Ring App and system, but please keep yourself updated in our announcements page if we do. I will pass up your idea to our team so we can see if we can get this in the works for you!

If it works wiith Z wave technology, wouldn’t it work with ring? Is it that your app does not support it? Thank you for the response. jim

Hey @invman! Z-Wave is the communication protocol that the Ring Alarm devices use to speak to one another, so we have to make sure it can integrate with our App and the system first. You can learn more about Z-Wave here. There are various Z-Wave devices that can be added to the Ring app through the Ring Alarm system, and we label them as Works With Ring devices. At this time, the thermostat is not apart of our list, but we are working diligently to bring more products to be available for our neighbors!

I didn’t do enough research on ring prior to purchase, but it appears that adding new features is a slow process (battery light on base unit - why wouldn’t you have a way to dim or disable it - pretty irritating) and now I find out that a z-wave system doesn’t integrate with z-wave thermostats - shouldn’t that be a basic function??? Please get it done quickly - before you fall behind everyone else…

I too complained about the same thing. I have three thermostats that operate on Z Wave and don’t want to buy nest or other.

Think the ring team will respond? Here’s the challenge “Ring Team” … get an affordable z-wave thermostat working with your z-wave hub by the end of January 2020… I think you can do it if you try…let us know if you’re going to do it…

I have an older RadioThermostat (Z-Wave) that I used with the Iris system. I have it connected to my Ring, and I can see it, change the Heat / Cool / Auto and change the temperature settings via the app … however, cannot do any kind of schedule - as I like to lower the temp at night. But, it does “work” to some extent.

Thanks for the info - would be nice if the Ring Team responds - but crickets so far…?

I can’t find out how to add anything to my Ring system other than what Ring wants you to add to their system. I have 2 Radio Thermostat CT30s that I would like to add to my Ring system. How did you add yours?

Typical response to these requests are “we are always looking to add devices… blah blah blah”. Don’t understand why this one can’t get done ASAP. Direct competitors have this function and have there own thermostats!!

Ring is behind Nest with thermostats, face recognition, etc. I am still with Ring since it is cheap in monthly fee.

You are at least two years behind the curve as other security system have integrated thermostats or have created their own product. The smart Thermostat was litterally one of the first smart home devices to come to market and you still dont have an integratation with your security system?!?!?! You have an Alexa integration for thermostats but not the security system?!?!? I’d love for Ring/Amazon to explain why this hasnt occured so that we can all understand why this hasnt happened? I dont want an message about taking the feedback to our team BS. I want an honest answer to a question that most Ring security users have.

Mine was an Iris also. I was told that the lock and thermastat need to be removed from the Iris system before you can pair with any other system. Unfortunately I do not have the Iris sytem anymore and have no way to remove from Iris. They will not accept a new without removing the old.

I agree, why they don’t respond since there were over 18,000 reviews shows a lot of people are interested in thermastats.

How do you add that to your shortcuts? Under my hidden shortcuts I only see Lights, Water Valve, Garage…the things I hid.

Hi BamaTom - sorry for the delay - my email system keeps putting these emails deep in my junk folder.

Going from memory here from when I first did mine over a year ago : But I added my Radio Thermostat to the Ring App via the Add Device funtion then Security Devices then Works with Ring … when I powered up my RadioThermostat (was formerly used with a Lowes IRIS system) - it showed up in the app as configuring. Then later it showed up in the list to add to my dashboard (I didn’t do anything to add it to the dashboard )

Let me know if that works for you - I haven’t had the need to remove it and try adding it again - am afraid that it will no longer work LOL

Seems in most z-wave devices there is a reset button - you must have no battery in it - press and hold the button then add your battery - that should reset it and in its own memory be removed from any other system … try adding to the Ring App using Security Device then Works with Ring - most z-wave I have was added that way - including my old Radio Thermostat that I used on my old now recycled Lowes IRIS system.

If you have a z-wave thermostat - you should be able to pair it with Ring by adding a Security Device then use Works with Ring - I added a Radio Thermostat over a year ago and it still works and is on my dashboard and usable from my iOS Ring App dashboard.

Good luck!
