Alarm Feature Request

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Can I ask the progress on allowing sensors to be set as either main door or secondary door

separately for home and away modes? I really need this feature. Without it, it's causing a lot of false alarms.

 

Also I would like my entry/exit conact sensor to not require disabling if the entrance is open when setting the alarm. This is a standard feature for any alarm I have ever used so should not be an issue with a smart alarm. Setting a long delay is no good when I have to strap my kids into the car and then come back to get my work bag etc and then close the door. I would normally set the alarm via keypad just as I pick my bag up, but it says I need to close the door first. I'm not going to do that with my kids sat in the car outside.

Hello Ring Team!

 

It would be great if there were an option to use Face ID or Touch ID before being able to enter the iPhone app.  It's an added layer of security if you want it.

Ability to link spotlight cam sirens to Ring Alarm.

Third party Z Wave siren support. Currently I'm using alexa to connect a Ring motion sensor to a third party siren. Ring recognises the siren as a light.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I have had trouble with burglars breaking into my backyard.  I need a product that detects motion outdoors and also an outdoor beam sensor. Those two products would make my home safer because they detect the burglar before they come into my house.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Could use the app from your car to set it.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

On the sensors I have there is the ability to set a sensor to be armed only for a specific mode.  My "in house" sensors are set to be armed only in the AWAY mode while my doors with entry/exit access (main doors) are set to be armed both in HOME and AWAY.  Is this what you are looking for?

Ring Alarm Suggested Improvements

I am a former Time Warner/Spectrum Intelligent Home customer and one of the things I was looking forward to was better Smart Home integration with Ring Security. While I realize the Security System is relatively new, it falls short in the ability to schedule notifications and activities around the Alarm itself.

  • If the Alarm is actually triggered, I would like the ability to turn on all or selected smart lights (not just “ring” lights – so better integration with Alexa based on alarm triggered events). It is very important to address this ability if an Alarm has been triggered and not just when motion is detected.
  • Along the same lines, it would be much more beneficial if even motion notifications were tied to the status of the Alarm (i.e., the option to suppress motion notifications if Alarm-Disarmed).

Perhaps I have missed somethings, but these are abilities that were incorporated into the outdated system I previously had so it is disappointing these functions are not available with Ring.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I am surprised this feature does not already exist, I definitely want this one.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

No. Very aware of those features. Looking for a socket, like the sirens, that will turn on when the alarm is tripped. This would power my exterior sirens.
