Ok, this is driving me mildly insane.
I have enabled chirps - At the moment, as a test on one of the door sensors.
In the "Chirp Tones" menu it says: "Your Ring Alarm Base Station and Keypad(s) will sound this tone when the sensor is triggered" - So I have set that to a tone and when the sensor is triggered, the base station chirps, and the keypad stays completely silent.
So I asked the FAQ! It won't let me post the link but it's on the ring support site under articles - 360026671732-Ring-Alarm-FAQs
> How do I change the volume on the keypad? Does this also change the volume for the Siren? Can the keypad play chirps?
> Like the Base Station, the Siren will always play from the keypad at max volume.
It's a little vague, but implies that the Keypad plays chirps - So the app tells me the Keypad plays chirps, the FAQ indicates that the keypad plays chirps - But the keypad doesn't play chirps.
So - Does anyone else's keypad play chirps, or are they lying to me in order to send me completely nuts and waste hours of my time resetting and re-registering keypads?
I've only set my Ring alarm up yesterday so I'm definitely still learning it but my keypad does not play chirps either. it does speak the "armed" and "disarmed" prompts. I also read the documentaiton as you do - that the keypad is supposed to chirp.
At this time, only the Base Station will play a chirp each time a sensor or motion detector is tampered. The Keypad will play entry/ exit delay tones as well as sound a Siren in unison with the Base Station if triggered. Our team is definitely working on adding this feature and more to the Keypad - we will certainly keep you informed of any updates
Could you maybe put that into the documentation? Apparently I am not the only one who read it and believed it - I checked before I paid up, and it's one of the major reasons I bought the system because I wanted to know when people walked into the workshop.
Hey neighbors! I'm happy to announce the Keypad chirps are now available to toggle in the app. If you visit the Alarm devices page in the Ring app and select the Keypad, there will be a toggle for Keypad Chirps that you can enable. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the app if you do not see this feature. I hope this helps!
I Hear the chirps from contact sensors but nothing from doorbell press. My keypad is in a central location downstairs where it would be awesome to hear doorbell press. The base station is upstairs in a guest bedroom near the router. It's got the hardware capability. I'd hate to have to buy a chime when I know the keypad can do it. Is this in the works as an update? Or am I missing a setting?
@RingUser18 Your Alarm Base Station should also be chirping. You may just need to adjust a few settings so you can hear this. First, check if your Base Station has the volume up loud enough. You can do this under the main menu > Devices > Alarm Base Station > Base Station > Audio Settings (make sure it's turned all the way up and hit save at the top right).
If you still are not hearing the chirp when opening and closing a door, let's make sure the devices are set up to chirp! You can do this under Devices > Alarm Base Station > and then any Contact Sensor. Once you select a sensor, you will need to make sure under Chirp Tones that it's not set to none. After this, go back into the main menu > Settings > Modes > Disarmed and make sure Enable Chirps is turned on.
Hope this helps!
