Feature Request : Door left open alert

Hello,

I have the ring home security kit and 3 cameras that work great but I was wondering if we could get a 'door left open' alert option for a contact sensor. Sometimes my kids do not fully close the front door or will not close it tight enough and without looking at the app itself I can not know if they actually fully closed it.

Setting a timer such as 'if door left open for 30 seconds send an alert to phone or chime in house. Repeat every 30 seconds or no repeat at all depending on the customers preference.

This can be snoozed much like the motion snooze on the camera for situations such as moving furniture or having the garage door open.

It probably would not be so useful for Windows but entry doors would certainly benefit from this.

Thank you for the consideration.

Ring alarm


Can I suggest you add a feature to the app. Which allows us to set what time the ring alarms arm and what time the alarm disarms again This will be very useful For example I want my ring alarm to be set to home and armed mode from 9pm to 6 am Hope you can update the app

Ability to report neighbors who are rude in the neighbors app.

I don't mean to be rude, but isn't that a bit rude?

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I miss a feature from my previous alarm solution that notifies us when the alarm was not set pat a certain time. It would be great if this option was in Ring Alarm to send a push and/or notification if the alarm isn’t set after say 10pm.

Alternatively if IFTTT was tied to allowed to get the alarm status that would work too.

Drice78,
This can be accomplished through SimpleCommands. You can even connect with SMS so you will receive a text and not just a notification.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Thanks I’ll check that out as possible solution. I would still prefer this to be native in the Ring app and not rely on tie-ins to other services.

Ring Alarm app alert tones

Please add app alert tones for the ring alarm! I really want to be able to distinguish between regular notifications and those from my alarm system. Thanks!!

Re: Alarm Feature Request

SimpleCommands doesn’t appear to solve this problem. It only notifies when an action occurs to cause a trigger. I need to know current state and if that state is disarmed at 10pm it will notify me. I don’t want it to always arm necessarily.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

1). I would like to have the option to link my camera sirens (especially the outdoor cams) to the alarm system, and let them sound on activation on the system.  This would act as a better deterent and also alert nearby neighbours of a potiental break in.  

 

2). There needs to be break glass sensors or allow echo to do it no matter what state the alarm system has been set.  

 

3). Allow cameras to be linked to the alarm system and only detect motion when alarm is set.

I.e internal cams could be switched off if alarm is off.

 

4). Better intergration between the alarm system and the other items, which would enable it to be an actual Smart home alarm.
