Loving my Ring alarm so far! The system seems rock solid and has been working great. I would love to see an option to have the door locks autolock after the countdown delay.
What an excellent idea to further automate security. Thank you for the feedback @Anonymous !
Great suggestion! I also would like to see this feature added. I am pretty good about locking up when leaving house but my wife and kids forget at times so this would be great as a back up.
I've been able to make this work through Alexa and Smartthings. Not the best way to do it, but so far its working. Have to use alexa to arm the system though.
I would like to see a feature to automatically lock the door 5-30 seconds after the Ring door sensor has sensed the door is closed.
The locks built in autolock is a no-go for me as sometimes you have the door open for awhile, talking, coming/going and don't want the deadbolt thrown. . ..but since Ring can sense when the door has been closed, it could lock the door afterwards.
Fantastic thought there @SVLowlander ! Alexa routines allow for some great automation such as locking at a specific time or for a specific reason. Hey @SonofLiberty82 , you seem to have some firsthand knoweldge with this integration, wondering if you have any insight as to how one could obtain this?
You’re right about the Alarm components indicating status changes to the Base Station, and we are definitely working on some integrations that should take full advantage of this. Thank you for sharing with us!
I don't have Alexa, Dots or Echos.
My thought is that in Ring Devices, specifically the smart lock device setting, that one could select the sensor that is attached to the door of the lock, and then either enable or disable auto lock feature.
