Re: Alarm Feature Request

The fact that Ring has not made a glass sensor available (as has Simpli Safe) is terrible.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I would love to have a reminder on my iphone to arm my alarm if I forget to set it.

 

Perhaps through gps sensing (similar to Apple notes reminding me of something when I get to a specific location--great feature btw.)

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Does the Ring alarm have a glass break sensor? I currently have another system and I want to switch to Ring BUT I have windows that don’t open that I need protected and a Glass break sensor is currently doing the job.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

No it does not and we all are wondering why?????
However, the Echo can be used with ring as a glass-breakage “sensor”, provided you have an echo in the room where the windows are located. (Settings/Guard)

Re: Alarm Feature Request

And Alexa guard only works when armed in away mode. So it's a poor substitute for glass-break detectors.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Simple solution with Simple Commands by kloee. The Simple Commands website dashboard can create a routine that will detect when the Ring state goes to "alarming" and control Alexa compatible devices (and others, I presume). Easy to use and free. Great product. I love it

Re: Alarm Feature Request

You may be able to use what you have by setting up Simple Commands to use them if they are compatible with S.C.  You didn't mention what kind of sensors you have or I would check for you.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

The Ring alarm motion sensor LED is so bright, it is like a lightning strike  just occured in my bedroom when I roll over in bed.  Please put a way to disable the LED in the app.  I get it that you want people to have visual feedback that the detector is working but putting the detector in this location gives me the best coverage with my layout.  I put three layers of tape over it and it is still to bright in a pitch black room.  Aluminum foil is next I guess.

 

I do love the product!

A range extender that works off of a wired ethernet network.  I have a metal building next to my house that I want to add sensors to.  No RF is getting inside that but I do have network connectivity to the building.  No brainer.
