Re: Glass Break Sensors

How do I  enable Echo Guard mode when Ring is in the Armed Stay mode?

Re: Glass Break Sensors

It can only be set when in the away mode. It can't be enabled in the home mode.

Re: Glass Break Sensors

I had a glass break sensor when I was with SimpliSafe and it works.

I had set the alarm one night and went to get a glass of water- accidentally dropped the glass.

Even though the sensor was in the living room facing the big glass windows, the alarm went off. Note that I’ve had Zero false glass-break alarms.

Come on Ring - Offer it!

Re: Glass Break Sensors

I too had a glass break sensor when I had Frontpoint (whom I left to go with Ring).  It worked great and complimented the motions and contact sensors.

 

Having recently learned Alexa Guard does not even arm in Home mode (Away only)  only further sells the need for a dedicated and 'real' glass break sensor.  I think I speak for the many when I say we don't want a microphone in our home to satisfy a component of our alarm system which should be intrinsic to the alarm in the first place.  Alexa Guard, at best, is a joke.

 

We want a dedicated glass break sensor that can be armed in both Home and Away modes.  We want it to offer the same functionality and options as a Ring contact or motion sensor.

 

Ring, you stand to make a great profit if you release a glass break sensor.  Between both purchases made by people like myself who already own the Ring alarm, and by potentially a whole new customer base that has yet to pull the trigger on your alarm system because you don't currently offer one. 

 

This is truly win-win for everyone if you release one.

Re: Glass Break Sensors

It's kind of a joke that they don't already offer glass break sensors. It's not like we are asking them to devote resources to developing some new technology. Glass break sensors exists, and have existed for some time. They should just certify a third party component if they are unwilling to release one themselves.

 

Absolutely ridiculous.

 

Can we get Ring to weigh in on this? Are you, or are you not planning on offering glass break sensors?

Hi Jennifer/Ring - Would it be possible to have Ring weigh in on this thread with some more specific information related to the numerous requests for a dedicated (not Alexa) glassbreak sensor.  Like many others, I am puzzled as to why this is not already covered as it seems like it would be fairly straightforward.   I suspect that someone from corporate is bucking for a promotion.  Probably Hanrahan.

Re: Glass Break Sensors

Well you can get an Amazon Dot for $25 and that has a glass break skill that integrates with Ring, HOWEVER, that will only work in “Away” mode, which is useless. You can use the motion detector in away mode. I wanted the glass break sensor for Home mode so if we are sleeping upstairs, the sensor will alert if someone breaks the window downstairs.

I have a solution though- although not ideal. You can install a motion detector outside with limited range and set that in “Home” mode.

Re: Glass Break Sensors

Did Ring respond that they're not going to add glass break sensors, as I haven't seen that response. Or, are you reacting to no response from ring on the request for them to answer whether they intend to offer glass break sensors?

 

 Thanks.

Re: Glass Break Sensors

Ring hasn't said yes or no. They're looking into it is about all that's known.
