Haha, agreed. I was able to stumble through setting up the routines and it works well for my purpose. Turning lights on/off at sunset/sunrise and sending text messages when my garage door is opened.
I'm thinking we should start a new thread under the "integrations" section of Ring Alarm:
SimpleCommands - Filling the gap
And then we can list all the things that can be done with SimpleCommands (SC) that you can't do with Ring Alarm (RA) on its own.
Maybe post some pics/setup instructions too ?
You've convinced me that SC can solve my feature gap issues with RA, so I'm buying a Ring Alarm to replace my older setup.
I really need advanced Z-Wave functions, such a manual HEAL or the ability to schedule one automatically. In large houses with many nodes it is essential.
Hey there, neighbors! I want to thank you again for continuing on these discussions about all the new features. Rest assured we are reviewing this thread weekly, and passing on all ideas over to the appropriate teams to further review. Thank you all again for being apart of the Ring family and Community!
I agree with this. You open the door and you have to stop and wait to see if the alarm is in entry delay or not. The entry delay needs to be WAY more prominent. I have set off the alarm twice because I didn't hear it. I had to turn the volume all the way up on the keypad and now everything else on the keypad is super annoyingly loud and you can still barely hear the entry delay.
