Custom Alerts/Chirp Sounds selections

Custom Alerts/Chirp Sounds selections

It seems many of us want more Alert/Chirp sounds to choose from.  Different sounds would make it easy to listen and immediately know which Ring device is activated.  But instead of having Ring pick additional sounds for us, would it be possible to add an alert/chirp sound called "Custom" and then provide a method for the user to "Import" a sound file into this custom slot?

 

Even better, provide "Custom 1", "Custom 2", and Custom 3", etc.  That way the user could import several different sounds according to their specific needs. 

 

There are plenty of Sound Files that can be downloaded free off the Internet.  And you could even make your own sound file or voice-recording file too!  Instead of just "Motion at your Front Door", you'd be able to make "Back door is open", or "Motion at your Backyard Cam."

 

I bet some people wound make some funny/unique sound files to use as their custom alert/chirp sounds!

 

What do you think?

Please keep the seasonal/holiday chimes on the app year round. It’s my doorbell, I should be able to listen to whatever I want. Thanks!

This would really improve security, knowing if there is movemeny in the front yard or the back yard.

I have multiple Ring doorbells: One at my house, one at Mom's  house, one at a second home, one of my girlfriend's house. I would like to record custom alert sounds that simply say "Someone's at Mom's front door," "Motion at your apartment front door," etc. This would be much more direct and much simpler than trying to decode which doorbell is being activated based on the beep or chirp or whatever. As it stands, I have to remember that my own front door is the ping-pong sound and mom's Front door is some other beep (which actually I can't remember right now).

Hello @joeld ,

 

If you had a "Custom" option then you could import any seasonal/holiday sound or chime that you desire.  You would not be limited to the choices that Ring selects, nor be disappointed when Ring removes that seasonal sound.  Add your Kudo vote to the link below if you like the idea of having Customized App Alert Tones & customized Chirp Tones.

Yes definitely this is required,  currently there is no much difference to grab attention what door and window was open, I am searching for the same, Surprised Ring does not have that while other systems have that feature as basic
