Access Code Longer Than 4 Digits

Access Code Longer Than 4 Digits

Currently Ring Alaram only allows for access codes that are 4 digits in length.  However smart locks such as the Schlage allow for access codes that are 4-8 digits. I would really like to integrate my smart lock with my ring alarm but 4 digit restriction is not acceptable. Please implement the ability to have longer access codes at least for locks but preferabbly for both the alarm and locks.

I like the new Modes function where I can activate all of my Ring security cams with a single button.  Are there any plans to scale this up to scheduling a daily time to automatically turn this on? I infrequently forget to activate my cams when I go to bed and this feature (automatic Away mode @ 10:00) would make this a perfect system for me.

I use a combination of (2) Spotlight cams and (4) indoor  cams.  I like having the outdoor cams "live" 24/7, so having the remaining indoor cams switching on at 10:00 or whatever time I would choose would be appreciated.

I second this feature.  I don't particularly like having just a 4-digit pin on my door lock. Please integrate 8-digit pins into Ring.

4 digits was ok for an alarm code but it is very poor security for a door lock. I was shocked to find a security system imposed such a weak security code system. My iPad is more secure than my front door lock.

New Neighbor

Agree. This is a huge security flaw. 4 digits for a door lock!? Come on Ring.

New Neighbor

This is a huge security breach for a system that is supposed to be a "security system". Amazing that Ring does not even care about this. Ring Alarm is reducing the strenght of devices connected to it (as mentioned above, Schlage allows 8 digit codes, but Ring limits it to 4 digits). For sure far from being a "security system"!!!

Same here. Coming from the Vera system... and I use more than 4 digits on my integrated locks.
I would also be happier with more than 4 for the security pin also, especially if they are syncronised.
This is really a basic concept, so while I understand the basic mode being 4 digit (as are some locks), it seems obvious to allow longer codes.
I will also add... some locks stack 2 digits for a total of 5 buttons (1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-0) such as the Kwikset 512... so being limited to 4 digits REALLY lowers the overall security from 10000 possible codes to only 625!  While I usually avoid those locks, there are a few circumstances, like single motion exiting, where I DO end up using them.
Even just having 5 digit would result in 100,000 or 3125 codes for 10 or 5 'digit/place' locks.
Please bump this up as a priority! As an integrator, there are a lot of things you seem to be doing right,,, dont fall short here!

New Neighbor

Yes, please allow 6-8 digits for lock and alarm!

New Neighbor

Yes, I'd love longer codes as well! Even if they were just for the locks.

This is also a problem for Yale locks.
