I disable alerts and recordings when working in my yard or driveway. More than once I’ve forgotten to turn it back on. A timer function when turning off alerts would be a great feature add. For example “disable for x hours.”
Same issue with me.
a timer would be awesome.
i find out after several days that the motion and recording are off. Please add a timer to that feature.
I came here to post this same suggestion. A Timer would be a great addition for when you expect motion activity for example doing yard work or having friends and family over and people are constantly coming in and out.
100% agree. I turn off my video doorbell when my kid is playing in front of it, and I always forget to turn it on again at night. A timer for modes would be wonderful.
seconded ……. are ring aware of these requests? and are they doing anything about it?
Given I’m coming here 18 months after the original post with the same issue, I’m not convinced it’ll do any good - but yes, timer please!
I’ve put a Ring Indoor Cam in my home office and I don’t want it recording when I’m working and I don’t want to have to remember to turn it on and off.
Modes aren’t much help because they rely on you manually switching between them. They really should be on a schedule too if they’re to be useful.
My workaround is plugging it into a wifi-enabled socket which is set to turn on at 7pm every day. I turn it off manually when I enter the office. Bit clunky though and such an obvious and easy to implement feature should really be built-in.
