Alarm Feature Request

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Please add keypad pin code requirement to app's arm disarm actions.

This is a major security vulnerability. If a user looses their phone. Or their phone is stolen, the person in possesion now has access to their home address and arm disarm features as well as video, routines, etc.

I am a new Ring subscriber and expexted a more professional level security system than I feel I have recieved. This seems to be an oversight in the development of this system. Please add the requested feature on the next app update.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

So, you don't have any security set on your phone? That's the first line in defense. Very few apps have security built in. If someone takes my device they cannot get in, I can remotely wipe it as well. If they power it off and on later it still won't allow access to my phone. Maybe at some point they will add this feature, but for now protect your phone. Some phones even offer to lock any apps you want.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

This is a feature request board intended to send requests to the developer. Work arounds do not provide accurate system flaw feed back and hide the necessity of required fixes.

If I do or dont run a security lock on my phone has no bearing on whether or not the app is secure in its design.

You are required to enter a pin code to arm and disarm your home from the keypad and while using Alexa Commands.

Most apps which are designed to be secure IE your banking requires log in and verification everytime you open the app. Your amazon acct regularly requests password login. You're required to enable 2 factor authentication every time you access your ring account from a browser. The app SIMPLY grants full control of your families security unchecked. Which is flawed and overlooked, requiring a fix.

Would you be satisifed with a simple momentary switch at your front door which arms and disarms your security at the push of a button?

Or possibly we should allow the door bell to turn the alarm on and off when strangers ring the door bell and notify them via an Alexa routine "Welcome Stranger, come on in. I disarmed the alarm for you with the push of a button!" (This can also be achieved via routines if you actually wanted it).

Re: Alarm Feature Request

It's a community. If you don't like that, no one is keeping you here. Do not tell anyone what they can or not say. Did I insult you? No. But you're now acting like the child here. Try to be more mature...

Quick alarm setting button

My previous 30 year old alarm allowed us to press #Away or #Home to set the alarm into that mode, rather than having to enter the code and them press the Away or Home button.

 

Is there a similar feature with Ring?

Re: Alarm Feature Request

I had a previous system that spoke what door sensor was activated. I like this feature vs just a beep.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Ring Alarm App - When you add a Shared User there should be an option that can turn off the alarm event history for that user.  Only the Admin should be able to see the history.  Or a Guest User should be able to use the app also with the limited functions of only being able to use alarm and door lock codes when you activate it for them.  That way you wouldn't have to worry about anyone seeing event history.  I think this needs to be addressed.  I have 2 Ring alarm systems and only have one activated for monitoring because of this reason.  I would add the monitoring if I could get users able to use app without seeing admin info.

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Another looked over feature.  Option or Schedule to turn off motion sensor updates while the alarm system is not armed.  Why would you need updates for this when the system is not armed?

Re: Alarm Feature Request

Please allow sensors to be configured as imediate or delayed seperately for both home and away modes. I want my landing motion sensor to be delayed in home and immediate in away. This way I can use it to warn me in am to disarm the system before I do something that triggers the alarm.

Voice chirps

Can we get voice chirps? I want everyone in my house to know what door has been accessed. If an intruder comes in want to hear "Basement Door opened" or "Guest Window opened".
