Alarm Feature Request

New Neighbor

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.

This is a great idea!

I agree there needs to be glass break sensors. I don't think using Amazon Alexa's or Echo's can be considered a substitute or even a stop-gap; because some people don't want an Amazon Alexa or Echo, I'm one of those people.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I agree.

 

A stand alone sensor is the way forward.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Is there any plans to add Geofencing arm/disarm? this would be a perfect additional feature that would help me with a wife that hates using any alarm systems!!

 

Other requests are Glass break sensors, Smoke alarm integration and Fobs in the UK..

Automatically arm at set time

It would be nice to be able to have the system arm ( home) every day at a set time.

Smart Door Lock/Unlock

SimpliSafe has a smart deadbolt lock that can be controlled with the app. Why is Ring not competing with a similar device?

Re: Smart Door Lock/Unlock

I have a Z-wave deadbolt that is listed on the website as compatible and can control it with my alarm. Look at Ring's website in the compatible devices section.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

1) I would like to enable Ring camera only to activate while alarm is in “away” mode.
2) Battery health % for alarm KEYPAD in dashboard

Re: Alarm Feature Request

The Schedule is cool. HOWEVER: What is missing is a lock code schedule.

I run an airbnb and I need to create a time/date for the user code to start working and end. This way I can create users when the guest books the stay, and forget about it. When they check in the code will work (at the appropriate agreed time) and when they check out it will stop working. I can then delete the user at my convenience.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

1.
Link floodlight cam to alarm base so that when the alarm (siren) is set off the siren(s) on the external cameras also sound and record.
If this was a configurable option in the app, then you could siren stick up cams etc (if required).
2. I’ve found various external (outdoor) siren(s) which are z-wave compatible, it would be good if these could be attached (paired) to the alarm base to act as the visual deterrent and sound if the ring siren was triggered.
I appreciate ring (at present) is an internal alarm, my point is, you’d like to deter before attack, as well as during. My house is ring protected, however, mines the only house on the street that you wouldn’t think has an alarm due to the lack of external siren.
