Re: Alarm Feature Request

Also in addition to the request for in app pin code to disarm, if you ever add this please make it optional. I now use tasker and autoinput to automatically disarm my alarm in the morning. The requirement for a pin code would seriously hinder this. So either don't do it, or if you do make it optional.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Support for zwave devices to open and close garage doors, specifically the Iris GD00Z-1 that is common when moving over from ADT. Device adds to Ring but app only offers On/Off commands and No Open/Close

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Automatically turn off all/or selected motion detection on the cameras when the alarm is disabled. When the alarm is Armed, auto enable motion detection on the cameras. 

 

Alternatively, auto disable the Motion Notifications for any selected cam when the alarm is disabled. When the alarm is Armed, auto enable the notifications. 

 

This would apply to anyone who has the ring app installed for that system. It could also be selected who it applies to. 

 

Thanks

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I'd love to have a quick way to turn the alarm base station audio on/off/change volume from the dashboard in the mobile app.

 

We have a pool and we use multiple door contact sensors along with the alarm base station sound as a secondary safety precaution when young kids are in the house.

 

Right now it takes 7 steps each time to toggle it on and off in the app:

 

  1. Hambuger menu
  2. Devices
  3. Alarm base station
  4. Base station
  5. Audio settings
  6. Slide volume up or down
  7. Save

Tie Flood Camera alarms to Ring Base station

Hello.

I would like to request the ability to have the Ring Alarm base station to activate the Ring Floodlight Camera alarms.  This would be a great way to extend the audible alarm.  Add the ability for each Flood light camera not only light up during an event, but choose whether or nor to sound each cameras siren as well!

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Support the connection with Amazon Alexa for more features ---

 

Currently, Alexa can react to the alarm mode (Away, Home, Disarmed). What I would like would be something like the following routine:

Smoke alarm activates and listener triggers Fire Alarm. Front Door unlocks, All Lights On., turn off HVAC/Thermostat

 

Another tie in would be: Front Door Locks manually, using inside physical lever, Alarm goes into Home mode. 

 

Also, alarm triggered by intrusion: Front Door forced or opened during Away Mode, triggers entryway light.

 

Front Door Lock open with Disarm. When the system mode changes from Home to Disarm, unlock the Front Door (currently only Lock the door is an option). 

 

I know that these features will work as I had them on my previous Z-Wave alarm system. I think that they would be a well-received set of features.

Software Alarm Panel for Ring Alarm

Is there anyway to have a software alarm panel for the Ring Alarm?

I'd like to have a tablet mounted on the wall that acts much like the panel that comes with the Ring Alarm.  It would be a basic keypad running on a fire tablet that can be used by lots of people in my office.  I have an existing alarm and want to switch to Ring.  My current alarm uses a tablet as a panel and we don't want to go away from this as it is already built-in to our decor.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I am new to this forum and appreciate that Ring wants to improve their product.  I apologize if this has already been posted but after reading the last three pages I did not see a post with allowing scheduling of the alarm to arm at Home at a cetain time during the day.  With my pervious alarm company, they had a program that allowed the alarm to come every night at a certain time (in my case it was 10pm).  This would allow for "forgetful" people like me to make sure the alarm is always armed.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

It's been asked many times. Hopefully they will make it happen. I now use another app to let me do this. Together they allow mine to be set at different times. Even based on my location.

Re: Software Alarm Panel for Ring Alarm

Yes but not a supported feature. I make 3 virtual switches in Smartthings, one for each arming state (Away, Home, Disarm) and I use 3 scenes in Smartthings for each switch on and the other 2 off. Alexa runs the correct scene associated with the arming state because Alexa and Ring have official support and so does Smartthings. I then use Actiontiles to monitor the Home virtual switch to show me if the alarm is armed (no sense in showing if it's away since no one will be there to see the tablet).

If you then want to be able to control the alarm state you could link Simple Commands behind the scenes.
