Activate Siren on all Camera’s and Alarm

Activate Siren on all Camera’s and Alarm

It would be very useful and handy if there was a feature to sound the siren on all the installed camera’s and alarm within one location. I have multiple cameras and have always thought that it would be good to have a feature to turn on all the sirens simultaneously if needed to alert neighbours of a issue or scare someone away.

@Boone @F1N1 As always, thank you both for these callouts! I've merged together the feature requests in question to this master request. Cat Happy

This is surely the entire point of being able to enhance your ring of security by linking devices together.  Ring has the linked devices feature so that devices can work together, but not the ability to link an alarm event to a lights siren.  Such an omission is nothing short of astonishing.  Come on Ring - get your act together and deliver this simple integration, or explain why you can't.

find it funny how Ring even sells a panic button accessory yet the system has no capability to link to exterior cameras. This feature is a must.

 

@Chelsea_Ring, hope you can provide insight on if this feature will be made possible soon! Please bring it up at your next meeting! Make it happen!

Please enable ring alarm to activate if selected cameras detect motion. I have cameras in my house and don’t want to have a camera and motion sensor in the same room or hallway. As I have cameras using the indoor cameras motion sensor would be a great help

Anyone else think the camera sirens should also be triggered when the security system has been set off? Its nice to be able to inform the area what's going on as well.

This feature is a must, not spending another penny on Ring devices until this is delivered. Really disappointed Smiley Sad Who is the product manager that does not prioritise this? Should be reprimanded. 

I imagine many customers simply expect this feature to work without knowing that the feature doesn't even exist. 

I am making it my goal to spread this news on social media to inform users.

Hi All,

I have bought cameras and the security system and now I realise I cannot activate the sirens of my external cameras with my security system. It doesn't make sense. One of the main challenges in a security system is to be loud and currently with the sound of the Base Station is not enough. 

It should be possible to link the siren of my external cameras to the Base Station. I don't want to link the light of my external cameras and turn on them if I have the thieves inside, that I need is to be loud as much as possible.

This is a requirement that is asked by all the community and I think it is a simple development.

When you will be able to develop that?

100% agree, the whole point of having an alarm system is for it to trigger a ALARM

I also have multiple cameras.    I also have the ring alarm that has no outside siren.   I would like to have a setting when the alarm triggers all the camera sirens also.

If Ring can't at least come up with a recommended 3rd party Z-Wave outside alarm siren, using the camera alarms would at least be something people outside can hear.  I can barely hear my base station standing on the back porch when I can see the base station through the windows in the back door.   Since the base station can initiate video recording during an entry delay or alarm, and the cameras themselves can turn on the wifi chime when they detect motion,  it wouldn't seem that much of a stretch to provide a command for the base station to tell the camera to play a siren sound, or even send the sound to it similar to talking through the camera speaker if the camera can't store a sound pattern internally.

 

An outside siren is definitely the biggest miss of the Ring alarm system.
