I would like to see an optional upgraded keypad that includes a touchscreen. The basic keypad is great for a starter package, but it would be nice to have a full-featured touchscreen option too. Please include an option for concealed hard-wiring if this is developed.
The screen should be configurable so it's always on and clearly shows the status of the system.
When I first investigated the Ring alarm I was surprised that the keypad was so basic. I get that they're trying to come in at a certain price point, and that the app is the main configuration inerface. But there's not even an option to upgrade to a touchscreen keypad at a higher price point. I'd pay extra for a touch screen keypad with options to configure it in a way that works for me.
I think it's annoying that this got moved to the gigantic "feature request" thread where it will get zero attention. There should be an entire forum dedicated to feature requests instead of a single thread. A single thread is too hard to read through as a user and makes responses harder to track. So, I guess my request will go to the black hole with all the rest...sigh.
This is the first company I've dealt with that uses a single, 'flat' thread for feature requests. It's definitely a poor solution, but as the saying goes it's better than a hole in the head. It also doesn't help that most people don't use the Quote feature when replying to another post which makes it difficult to follow a conversation thread.
Would like the option of having the blue status light on the alarm control panel to stay off when door or window is left opened.
Currently it goes off for 15 seconds and comes back on whether or not the window or door is opend or closed.
This gives a false sense of security when you look at the panel before you arm it.
FYI - I have 3 control panels mounted and continuously powered on.
Hello there !
Some of the below items have been requested and probably being worked on. I am a new user and wanted to amplify the need for these features as well as add one or two possible new ones.
Thank you and Happy New Year !
Hi---We really need this for all cameras as an option. This was available on the Simplisafe cameras which was great. They were always detecting motion when you were armed. Thanks--dxfiles!
I came here looking to suggest the same. When we moved into our house it had an old ADT system that I resurrected. We soon got tired of punching in keycodes so I found some cheap fobs online and programmed them for the system. Appreciate being able to disable the system by the app, but a fob is so much easier.
My car has 3 built in buttons for a garage door opener. This means I have a spare one - would be great if it could be programmed to work with ring too - that way I can disarm the ring system and then open garage door all from my car's built in buttons. 9 times out of 10 when I arrive at the house its in my car.
The one feature I miss from our last alarm company is that we were able to configure contact sensors to send us an email or SMS notification when they were opened. In particular we used this for our liquor cabinets to ensure our kids or their friends weren't going where they shouldn't be.
