So at the moment I have the Ring Doorbell Pro, and the Ring Alarm System.
All working great.
I also have the Arlo camera system inside the house.
When I leave the house, the alarm is activated via the kaypad or phoen app, and I then have to manually activate the Arlo camera system - Which detect motion, then record video and sound another aralm (much louder then Ring Alarm may I add).
I am considering adding Ring cameras instead of the Arlo system.
However, I want the cameras to remain inactive at all times - I dont want them recording when my family are at home and wasting battery or Internet bandwidth etc.
I want the cameras to only activate and record on motion if the alarm is active or triggered.
So in other words, if the alarm is placed into away or home mode, or is sounding, the ring cameras should become active and start recording on motion. Once the alarm is switched off, or teh system is placed into deactivated mode, the cameras should switch to inactive and stop recording on motion.
I know I can link Ring devices - but is the above scenario achievable??
Seems like a simple enough complete security system, but when I call Ring they tell me teh system will not work in this way and I would need to manualy activate and deactive cameras - which means I may as well stick with the separate Arlo system which has another alarm too…
