Re: Schedule Alarm Off/On

Great idea. Still feels like it should be a built in feature.

Outdoor Siren

 

1.) Would love to be able to add an outdoor siren (neighbor notifying level), whether z-wave or hard wired. My old system's siren got people's attention outside the house. I would love that option with Ring. 

 

2) A snooze option to allow me to leave in the morning without waking my family with chimes and "disarmed" sounds.

Currently having to go in and turn down the volume and then back up after walking out is too many clicks and steps, and honestly annoying. I'm sure this is a very common real-life scenario for others than just me.

Currently ifnmy 11 month old wakes up in the early morning, he's not going back to sleep and will cry non-stop. Which slows me down and eventually involves my wife needing to get up earlier than she should. A snooze option just makes life that much easier.

Setting schedule for alarm mode.

Iris alarm have a wonderful feature that allows the user to set schedules to the alarm mode. I found it very useful and feel very secure. I knew that no matter what my alarm will not forget to set itself on at night and set it self off in the morning. I really miss that Iris feature. I hope Ring can bring this feature to our peace of mind.

Alarm Feature Fequest

Volume levels for each category of alert, beep, enunciation should be independently adjustable. For example, I need the “Armed/Disarmed” announcements to remain relatively quiet (as these are disturbing and not very important enunciations in my house). However, the audible signal that warns of an impending siren alarm due to opening a door needs to be clearly heard to remind me to disarm.

Alarm Feature Request

Regarding the keypad: Understandably, it’s designed to stay dark as long as possible to conserve battery energy. But if there is enough battery energy to continuously power just one LED (and I believe there is), that LED should be the ‘status’ LED so that the user doesn’t have approach the keypad and wave her hand over it to discover the status of her alarm. It’s important to be able to understand what the status is from a distant and concealed vantage point. Ideally though, the user should have the choice to keep illuminated the entire array of LEDs on the keypad with the understanding that this will require more frequent charging. In my experience with the keypad, the battery capacity is ample. Another similar, acceptable setting which would conserve battery energy would be for the entire keypad to be constantly illuminated at reduced intensity until it is approached or manipulated. Currently, I find the proximity detection feature of the keypad to be unreliable and virtually ineffective.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

From the keypad you don't know a sensor is open until you attempt to arm the system and it tells you a sensor needs bypassed. Please have the diarmed button flash to show the status of the sensors. I came from a vivint system and it showed the sensor status at the top of the touchscreen so you were always aware.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Had an issue this weekend where my back door was no longer dinging when opened and found that the sensor was completely missing from my account. After talking with support it was found to be a known issue due to firmware yet a warning was never sent out to warn customers to keep an eye out. This is a blatant disregard to our safety as someone could have walked right in our door with the alarm armed and we don't use motion sensors.  

 

My Feature request is for an email to be sent anytime a sensor is removed from an account to make the owner aware.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Glass break sensors. The lack of glass break sensors is the only reason I haven't purchased the alarm system yet. If you had glass break sensors, I'd buy the alarm system and 8-10 glass break sensors to go with it. Hard pass on the Amazon Alexa and Echo; I don't want either one.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Please include the temperature in the Freeze sensor's low temperature alert.  I had to look it up, causing unneccessary worry.  I know its not now adjustable, but don't assume we all will remember that 40 deg is the threshold.  To make it better, also allow us to see what the current temperature is (ie. whether its getting lower or higher).

Medical Panic Request

I have had our ring alarm with professional monitoring since it was first released. And since then, I have been amazed at the new features with each and every update. My most recent favorite was the addition of police and fire request from the ring app. They are an extra piece of mind as I don’t yet have a panic button in the bedroom in the event of an emergency. But one feature that I never thought I’d want until the other night is a medical alert button. I was home alone about to take the dogs out when I had “stroke like” symptoms and bad on the verge of loosing consciousness. Thankfully, I didn’t and after a few minutes was okay. But in the mist of blacking our, I grabbed the keypad off the wall and was about to hit the panic buttons. But then it dawned on me. They would be sending police. Not medical help. And since that day I’ve thought about how much ring needs to add a medical panic option. Atleast on the app. You never know when a medical issue will arise. I really think it should be added for people who really need it.
