I second this. Would love to see smaller contact sensors or create a sensor that can do both contact and motion like nest secure as well as having a button to exit door without disarming the alarm.
Play Contact Sensor notifications on Ring Chime
When I open the door, I get a notification chime that plays through the Base Station's speaker. However, in a larger house, the base station cannot be heard from far away and through many walls. I'd like ability to plug-in multiple Chimes around the house and have them be speakers for not just the doorbell, but also contact sensors so I get an audible alert/confirmation when a door or window is operated.
Yes! Motion detectors on the camera are poorly integrated with Ring Alarm. Cameras with motion detection should be able to set off the alarm when motion is detected just the same way individual motion detectors would work.
Ring Alarm + Ring Devices should have Apple HomeKit support
I'm sure it's been said many times in separate topics and threads. But there's no way to limit search within the this feature request thread or sort by kudos/votes so it's hard to tell where we are on this HomeKit topic. Is it ever coming? Has it been cancelled? Is it on hold? Your customers deserve to know.
I bought a tilt sensor. Would like to have the app automatically lock doors when arming and at least notify me if my garage tilt sensor detects that my garage is open. We still can't even use routines for ring in Canada yet, which is disappointing.
When routines are eventually enabled, I'm hoping I can do these kinds of links based on arming state. I.e. when arming, lock doors, notify if garage door is open. Or, when arming away, set ecobee temperature to away setting, etc.
I do use Alexa extensively for glass break monitoring and as others have asked I would like to be able to use Alexa routines for Ring Alarm to integrate closer with Alexa and to have Guard also in home mode. An arm/disarm fob would be nice also.
As far as I can tell you have no decent solution for modern double-hung windows where the upper and lower both move .
Most double hung do not have the size (depth on the outer pane assembly) to put a sensor at the intersection of the upper and lower sections. It would also be in view, unlike side-mounting, especially given how large your sensors are.
Using two sensors for the upper and lower is expensive, wasteful (you generally don't care if the top or bottom is open), and not even possible on a lot of window styles because your sensors are so large as contact sensors.
Alarm systems typically allow for wireless sensors that take up to 3 wired inputs. This is useful because you can place the wireless sensor itself (bulky with battery) off to the side and connect two wired contact sensors per window for upper and lower into what the system sees as a single wireless sensor. Wired contact sensors are tiny and can fit under almost any condition. If you or an installer are ambitious you can generally even run the wires in behind the moulding.
Most alarm systems provide a wireless contact sensor form factor that allows embedding in doors for a cleaner look.
