Alarm Base Station should sync with Floodlight cameras when alarm is triggered

Alarm Base Station should sync with Floodlight cameras when alarm is triggered

I have recently brought the alarm base station set from Ring and this has been working fine. I last week purchased two floodlight cameras for front and back garden. Due to them having sirens as well i assumed that this would all sync up with the alarm base station. I.e when the house alarm goes off the sirens from the floodlight cameras would also trigger.

 

However, this is not the case. Currently if the alarm is triggered the cameras record the event but i think having the sirens triggered as well would be an extra benefit to the whole package. As there is no external siren option with Ring products this could be a quick fix for that issue as the base station isn't very loud when you are outside the property.

This definitely needs to happen.

A number of people have been asking for the same thing for a long time. 

 

You'd expect this to be a no brainer but ring seem to have other ideas.

I concur, this feature is highly desirable and needed. With the Alarm system inside and 4 floodlights/cams outside, having the ability to sync the activation of the outside sirens to the base station alarm would add an additional layer of notification.

 

In fact, take the up-grade a step further. Since the floodlight cams are hardwired, in additional to the outside sirens activating, the floodlights could begin flashing also.

This has been said elsewhere, but let's say it again. A lot of people want this feature. It will sell outside and inside cameras with sirens and it will sell alarm systems.

I have a Ring Alarm but don't have any Ring cameras, yet.   This feature would be a good selling point to add a couple Ring floodlight cameras, especially because there's no external siren with the Ring Alarm and the internal one isn't really that loud.

 

so I agree having a base station alarm condition activate the siren on external Floodlight Cameras is a great idea. 

 

also agree with GNPHiker's suggestion to additionally flash the hardwired floodlight cam lights on an alarm condition. This would be great additional external notification of an alarm. Perhaps it could be a configurable option to flash the lights or just turn them on steady when an alarm occurs.

This is the only thing holding me back from purchasing a Ring alarm system, come on ring you're missing a trick here!

I am also expecting this feature. It should be standard feature.

Can't believe this hasn't happened yet!
