External sirens needed

External sirens needed

We've installed our alarm today and you can't hear the siren very well at all outside of the house. As we have multiple ring cameras around the perimeter the option to have those sirens sound in additional to the internal one would be great.

 

Id like to see the linked devices option for the alarm split into two sections, one to be for entry delay to have the option to trigger recording and sounds as it does now and then separately alarm sounding to have options for recording, lights and sirens. Shouldn't be too much of a leap from what's already there. 

Maybe a maximum external siren ring time to ensure that they only ring for 10 minutes so a false trigger wouldn't ring all day. 

In the UK people are used to all alarms having external sirens, so this is a big lose if moving to this alarm.

An external siren is a frequently requested device in this community.  So maybe . . . someday . . . 

 

Where I live there is a law that an external alarm siren must stop after 15 minutes.

Re: External sirens needed

I am also in need of a external siren so neighbors can hear when my alarm goes off.

Is ther any plans fron Ring to add a external siren?

Re: External sirens needed

I’m in need of this as well. It’s the only real shortcoming of Ring Alarm now, is there is no way to just hookup an external (outdoors) loud siren (125db or better). It would also be helpful to be able to add outdoor strobes to the Ring Alarm.

Re: External sirens needed

I've just bought a Ring alarm system

 

and I am shocked Ring has no external siren and no glass break sensor available.

 

What's the point of indoor siren if no neighbor can hear it?

 

 

Is Ring in the alarm system industry?

Re: External sirens needed

Some day!  Well if you plan to increase your market share sort it out!  I've had several discussions with others getting alarms or who got different alarms specifically because it DID NOT have an external alarm.  Now I thought it would be loud enough, so went with RING, but have to say, it ain't that loud during testing.  Disappointed you've not resolved this yet... but I'll stick with you guys cos... I like the self manageability, and it doesn't look crap like some other DIY alarm systems.. (and I can't be bothered doing this again).

Re: External sirens needed

Totally agree with this, IF ALARM TRIGGERED THEN SIREN TRIGGER=CAMERAS

I’ve got one on the driveway, the back of the house, living room....all of these going off should then alert my neighbours enough....

Or give us an external loud DB bell 💪🏼

Re: External sirens needed

Hi  @Ring_Jon

 

Others have been requesting the feature that you are looking for, with some slight variations.  But you can see that you aren't alone! 

 

There are also many similar posts in other Ring forums, but now Ring Teams look for request here in the "Feature Board Request" forum, and so I did not include those other too-numerous links.   I just linked only "Feature Board Requests."

 

If you like the idea for an OUTDOOR SIREN (that can tolerate the outdoor weather) and/or sounding the CAMERA SIRENS too, then make your vote be heard by clicking on the all the links below, and then click on the "Thumbs Up" icon on the beginning thread (upper-left side) of the originator's  post request.  Make your voice be heard and add your "Thumbs-up" vote :

 

More "Thumbs Up" Kudo votes will better get the attention of the Ring Teams.  I apologize for any similar "Feature Board Requests" that I've might have missed.  But if I can miss them, then so can the Ring Teams.  

 

Let's all mass together our Kudo votes & efforts for an Outdoor Siren and/or sounding the Camera Sirens too!
