Alexa features are a popular request lately! Not to worry, our team has never stopped working on integrations and further automation with Alexa enabled products and our devices. I 8th and 9th this, and am sharing the growing interest in routines with the team.
Someone asked to be able to turn on all lights when an alarm went off -- while Ring may have ambitions to do this with Ring lighting, integratgion with Alexa to support Alexa based lighing, sensors, sirens, cameras and any other thing that typically would be present in an Alarm system is critical. You are the same company after-all, competing with youself seems odd.
I would like to be able to adjust the volume on the siren or even the ability to have a "silent alarm". I haven't seen this mentioned previously and can think of many scenarios where that ability would be helpful.
I'd really like a silent panic capability. If there's an intruder, or someone at the door with a weapon, I don't want to alert him by sounding an alarm. I also don't want him to see that the alarm has been tripped, so he can demand that I disarm it. I also don't want the Monitoring station phoning me to verify if there is a problem. I want the police notified Immediately. I'd like the option to be able to send this using the Panic Button, also from the keypad or the app.
@TomBurton , you'll see I've moved your post into this Alarm feature request thread, as many others have shared interest in a similar feature. We will definitely share this with the team again to reinforce our neighbors value of it! Thanks for sharing
At home mode change:
To allow selected motion sensors to be active in the home overnight.
At night when asleep it would be desirable to be able to turn on selected motion detection devices on the ground floor, in effect using selected ground floor IR movement sensor as well as having the contact sensors monitoring doors and windows.
Reason being that without glass break monitoring, someone can break in via a window not disturb the contact and in the case of an open plan ground floor pretty much move around without tripping an alert.
If you could select specific home profiles (Home contact sensors only or Home night time contact sensors and selected IR sensors) this would give better security coverage at night when users are most vulnerable.
