Re: Geofencing mode

Ring needs to make this feature a priority. It’s doesn’t seem outrageous to have the feature use the location services of the registered device this way the mode automatically changes when it within the distance of the cameras. Otherwise it is simply annoying having to log into the app to change it each time. Not to mention it’s easy to forget to change it back to away mode once you have left. This leaves room for holes in how your hone is protected or not protected for that matter. Get on this ASAP

Re: Geofencing mode

Every few months I look for this to see if it's updated. I'd migrate my cameras over as it would be cheaper for me in the long run and also one system. Still, the end of 2020, we're missing a basic feature. Granted if you realize we really need two apps for our doorbells now to watch live video, it makes sense they can't pull this off. Maybe instead of ditching nest I need to think of just going the other way and swap to them.

Re: Geofencing mode

I use Simple Commands combined with an Alexa routine which senses when I arrive in the Driveway, then opens the Garage Door, Unlocks my doors, and finally disarms Ring.

Re: Geofencing mode

Hi Smugyou. This sounds very interesting and I have lots of automation I can use including HomeBridge but I can’t work out from your message what triggers the mode change, if that’s what you’r suggesting happens? If you could elaborate any more I’d love to get this working. I’d be happy to write a tutorial and give you credit. I’m sure this would make a lot of people happy.

Tech head..

Re: Geofencing mode

Another UPVOTE

 

This is unbelievable, no native support for Geo-fencing, and furthermore not even support for 3rd party integrations to trigger Home/Away mode using Alexa, etc.

Re: Geofencing mode

Why is this ticket marked as solved when it clearly is not? Ring please tell me why this is marked as solved and pleased give the hundreds of people that have taken time to comment on this post an answer as to why you cannot implement geofencing? It seems like your most requested feature and a no brainer! If I could return this alarm system I would because I think others have leapfrogged you now. Terrible for the company that pioneered the smart doorbell.

Re: Geofencing mode

Just installed my doorbell pro and spotlight camera... how on earth is it possible that a company like this does not support geofencing... OMG when buying this it was not even one second on my mind to check this upfront. Anything is location based nowadays (of course with your preference and consent), but that it is totally not available is mind blowing!!! Ring, get to work and please develope this feature... not to innovate, just to get back in line with the competition out there.
