What is the point of the current implimentation of cameras in a full ring alarm system

I have 2 full Ring alarm systems on 2 properties. 1 in the UK and 1 in Spain. I put cameras all over both properties thinking I could at least use the motion warning to automatically tell people they are being recorded but alas this only works in America!!

We have had intruders 3 times in Spain but fortunately not breaking into the property and setting off the Ring alarm system but 2 times they stole things from outside the house while the camera was recording them!

The one time it didn’t happen was when I was at work and just happened to see them so I manually activated the alarm. They ran away pretty quickly when all the linked sirens went off.

The other 2 times were the middle of the night when I couldn’t view it as I was asleep!

For a meaningful deterrent we need to be able to automate this feature - especially in remote areas or what’s the point in putting up cameras

Also what is the point of protect plus as we only get a message when the alarm has gone off. Protect plus would be worthwhile if they reviewed the footage and activated the alarm when it happened rather than me having to do it.

By automating the siren activation on motion, or even activating the siren during the recording of that motion it would not effect the income stream they get from protect plus.

I believe we have had 2 occasions when this feature would have prevent theft from my property and the whole point of the alarm is to do what………
