Extend the length of Live View

Extend the length of Live View

There is currently a 10 minute limit on each live view session, so it stops me from using the indoor camera as an effective baby monitor, or using the doorbell cameras to monitor when I'm waiting for some activity to happen in front of the house.  Please make this limit configurable, extend it, or eliminate it for local network viewing.

I have the same issue, I also use the indoor cam as a baby monitor.

It would be awesome if I can run Live View continuously and not for a short period of time.

I notice that when I'm in live view it closes out after a few minutes of watching. It would be useful if I could run it on my tablet over night instead of having to wake up for each false notification. If its on live view with sound I would probably have a better chance in scaring away or catching someone in the act. Please add that feature I hate that it times out as should have that option.

 

ThAnk You.

Currently you can only view cameras live view for 10 minutes and then it shuts off. I use my indoor camera for a baby monitor and want to have on my echo show device or my phone throughout the night. PLEASE make viewing live stream open for an unlimited amount of time.

I know! We need this too!

Agreed. This should be a built in feature. The 10 minute restriction is a huge flaw in the design of the Ring cameras:

Agreed.  I already left a one star rating in amazon due to this limitation.   I always assume Live View is continuous and never thought about it has a time limitation.  It has never been listed in the amazon product page when I bought the camera.  It's a very misleading marketing.

@SmartCarrion

 

Would you say that your feature request is identical to this one?

 

https://community.ring.com/t5/Feature-Request-Board/Live-View-Continuously/idi-p/32574

 

Or, is it not exactly identical?

 

Because if you agreed that it was identical, we should be able to consolidate the votes.

 

If yours could be consolidated into it, we would be able to almost double the votes.

 

Thoughts?

It is generally the same feature request, although mine is more detailed and includes partial solutions since they have a clear cloud resources reason why they don't let us leave it on all the time. So I'd suggest they pile those votes into here since it is the earlier, more detailed request.
