Feature request: exit without having to disarm and rearm

Hi there, when we are home we usually keep the ring security system in Home mode. If I want to leave the house while the rest of my family is still at home I need to disarm and then re-arm the system in home mode.

Feature request: While the system is armed in home mode if I the keypad I enter my passcode and then hit the arm home button that would give me 30 seconds to leave and then automatically rearm the system in home mode.

Alarm New Features

I like to see a few additions and changes to make the ring alarm better and more comparable to outher comercial systems.

 

  1. option for alarm system to have voice notifications like; "front door open" and "front door closed". 
  2. Inrease the number of sounds for when you like to have sound and not voice. The current selection of 4 sounds is very limited.
  3. Include MQTT (mosquitto) so that the alarm system has the capability to play nice with home automation systems. MQTT will allow the system to share sensor/system state with home automation systems, and if implemented propperly also allow home automation systems to arm/disarm. MQTT is very universal and almost every commercial and freeware project supports this.
  4. Create a multi sensor input module to allow connection of hard wired sensors in a house. This will make it easier for people to switch from their existing hard wired system to the ring alarm

This! But silently (or at least an option to silently arm) so i dont wake everyone when leaving

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Just installed Ring Security System this week and am really impressed so far. 

 

I do do have a couple of features that I think would be a great improvement.

 

1. an option to silently arm the system (no loud countdown). 

2. The green battery light on the keypad in my bedroom is way too bright for a darkened room.

 

Thanks!

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Any way to keep the Red circle lit when it is armed. Just looks intimidating through the front room window and I feel it could be a great deterrent.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Please give us the option change to arming sound. It’s important to have one as an audio reference however, It sounds like a bad 80’s horror movie.

 

Additionally, an extra customizable mode would be great.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Please work on integrating playing sounds between products.

 

1. We need something other than the base station that will play door open sounds. (Keypad, Chime, Dome Siren)

 

2.  It would be nice to use existing products instead of a Chime for doorbell sounds (Keypad, Base Station, Dome Siren)
