How is it Secure? Ring is not Secure. the dont have a simple Glass break sensor

If I live in a two story house and someone break in through the window, they can just come in and do way much more damage if I am home! because the motion sensors will be off "home mode"

Hey @Unknown989 ! If you have an Alexa enabled device you can use the Alexa Guard feature which can listen for events such as glass break. Rest assured, we've sent your feedback to the team.

So Marley, you are telling me I should tell everyone who asks me about ring that they should buy also an Alexa because Ring is unreliable ?

I would switch my entire home and business alarm systems over to Ring right now if you provided glass break sensors. I'm not going to purchase Alexa and additional Echo's to cover my house and business. I can't use motion sensore because of having dogs. There are many glass break sensors on the market, Ring needs to partner with one of them and their alarm system business would increase 10x. It sounds like Alexa is the only partner benefiting from that partnership. Please add a glass break sensor!!!

I agree that a dedicated certified glass break sensor that will alarm and report to the monitoring company is needed.  I like the Alexa away mode, but it does not trip the alarm.  There are areas of the house I do not want an echo device bu do need glass break protection.  Please let the product team know your customers are clammering for this product and feature.

Good Morning. I had this same concern as my downstairs living room is covered in windows, basically a sun room. I do have sensors on the doors and every window but as you mentioned, there is no glass break sensor. What I opted for was adding a motion sensor that covers the whole area of the room, and when I’m home mode, that motion sensor is armed. This allows me to know if anyone came through a window by breaking it the alarm will trip and alert us. This was prior to me knowing about the Alexa glass break feature.

My mother is 83 years young and may not remember the motion sensor is activated in a given room. She will want to get a blanket or extra clothes in a closet and trip the alarm.

 

Rather than "alarm by avoidance" (patent pending, lol) wouldn't it make more sense to simply have glass break detectors that we can use on the Ring Alarm System so we feel safe and secure?
