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?

I have two Ring doorbells... One at the front door and one at the side door. The app only lets me set one round for ringing the bell, and one sound for motion. I should be able to set each doorbell independently, so that I know from the sound which doorbell to head to.

Also, Ring Chime devices should be able to have a different alert for each doorbell.

I would like to be able to use two different ring tones on my chime pro for each doorbell. I have two doorbells and need that feature to know which doorbell is being rung. I have s very large home and have one for the front door and one for the back door.

Update/backport the Ring Chime product so that it supports different ring chimes for motion and doorbell. NOT just the standard 2.

Why? Because it is confusing when you have changed thecamera motion detection chime so that each chime is different and represents a different area, this works on the Ring iphone App, but is not reflected on Ring Chime product - i.e. just the generic chime sounds and you can't differentiate where it came from like you can from the chimes on the mobile phone.

Being able to integrate a chime with SmartThings for example amd have it ring a custom chime would tripple the usability of this product!

This request is related to other requests for more alerts-sounds for other Ring Video devices, like the Indoor Cam, Stick-up cam, Spotlight Cam, and the different variants of the Ring Doorbell & Chime devices.  Yes, I agree for the need for more/different sound choices, to determine quickly which device was activated (without having to look at your phone notification, which can take some valuable time).  Having multiple video devices inside and outside, and several doorbells, can make it difficult to determine which device it is (by sound alone) due to the limited number of available alerts choices.

Many of us are all requesting new voice or Alert/Chirp sounds.

https://community.ring.com/t5/Feature-Request-Board/My-own-Ringtones-alerts/idc-p/50687#M1796

 

Instead of having Ring pick the additional voice announcements (or Alert/Chirp sounds) for us, would it be possible to add a new Alert/Chirp sound selection, called "Custom" . . .  and then also provide a method for the user to "Import" a sound file into this Custom slot on each device/sensor/doorbell? 

 

Different 'Sound Files' can obtained off the Internet.  And you could even make your own sound voice-recording file too!  You could then Import tailored voice-recordings, such as:  "Someone is Ringing your Backdoor Doorbell", or "Motion in your Living-room", or "Your Side Door is open", or "Motion at your Backyard Cam."  I bet some people wound make some funny voice-recordings, like "Welcome Home Your Highness" for your door sensor chirp.  The point is, having an added new 'Custom' feature could provide endless Alert/Chirp choices!

 

Although some people workaround this utilizing the Amazon Echo that can provide this ability, but I would prefer a "Custom" Alert/Chirp selection listed right along with the other choices of 'Windchimes, Harp, etc.', all in the Ring App.   Additionally, I'm resistant to having an Echo in my house, because the idea of something listening to everything in my house I still find a bit too creepy for me (I've disabled "Listening" abilities of my other high-tech devices in my house).  You can see that this could be distinctive aubible Chirps to know which Door, and which DoorBell, Motion Detector, Contact Sensor, and Video Camera too.

 

Now, if you think this "Custom" Alert/Chirp option (with Import capability) would be nice to have, click on link below and click the Thumbs Up Icon.  Ring Teams notice Feature Requests with higher Thumbs Up numbers, and then are more likely to incorporate the Feature Request.  There are quite a few similar posts requesting either wanting larger Alert/Chirps selections, or more Voice announcements.  Hopefully this "Custom" option would meet everyone's needs.

Can't find thumbs up button so hope LOVE the idea. We had an option once.  I think it was part of the original Ring Chime and network extender application..

  , In this Ring "Feature Request Board" forum, the 'Thumbs Up" blue button/Icon is located at the upper-left-corner of the originator's first posting of the idea (very beginning of the thread), so you may have to scroll back to the beginning.  Of the 9 Product topic forums, the 'Feature Request Board" is the only forum room set up this way.  
Thanks for the kind words!  Smiley Happy

There should be an option to set different tones for each camera on the Chime Pro, just like you can set these in the Ring app for your phone alerts. Or the Chime Pro could have a setting to use the same tones that are already set in the app.
