Please please for the love of jeebus. I have an integrated smart home setup, and ring alarm, VDB2s, and lights. I have echos in every room and use guard in conjunction with the ring alarm to monitor glass breaks etc. These two in my opinion simple features/fixes would change my experience for the better by so much: 1) Allow me to set some type of rule that MUTES my chimes/indoor sounds while the system is set to away (or any certain) mode. I have a dog, and she gets rowdy when motion goes off, and i still get a lot of false triggers, and so I just would like to turn that off automatically when armed since no one is home to hear them anyways and all it does is freak out the dog. 2) And im still shocked this isnt an option yet, but LET ME USE MY ECHOS AS SATELLITE SIRENS!!! I have them all over, and my base station is in the bedroom due to networking access. So if the alarm does go off its super loud in the bedroom, but not very loud the rest of the house. Why cant i use my echo devices that are already all over to become sirens. This one seems like a huge win for you in the integration department and expanding the reach/coverage of your system using echo devices. PLEASEEEEEE. Thanks
Thank you for sharing @DonC ! We can understand the value behind smaller devices, and will certainly pass this along to the team. I've moved this over to the features request thread to ensure all requests are in one place for all neighbors and teams to see.
Ability to arm the Ring Alarm without bypassing a sensor even when it's tripped. We have our Ring Alarm keypad near our front door and we generally open the door (to move things to the car, etc.) and keep it open while we're leaving the house. Right now we have to close the door, arm the alarm, and then open the door again to exit the house. It'd be great if the alarm could be armed normally even while the door sensor is tripped, as we will close the door during the exit delay.
Yes please! We already get notifications on the watch, for example when the alarm is in entry-delay mode. It'd be nice to be able to disarm the alarm from the watch -- for example a hard press to bring up a menu to disarm.
I'd also like to see Siri support, Apple HomeKit support, and the ability to automate the alarm via Shortcuts.
Ring, please understand that many of us do NOT like Alexa and want enhancements within the Apple ecosystem.
You can arm the system on a schedule. I set mine to arm at midnight (with Alexa) in case I forget to do it at bedtime
