here in the UK Ring Alarm is late into the self-install home alarm game. There is one main widely installed competator solution that offers a very similar solution, but includes an External Alarm / Siren box option with led active status lights. In fact you can have multiple boxes, including branded dummies. These act as a deterrent as well as adding external sirens to the property.
Will Ring be brings out such hardware, branded or unbranded ? It's definitely a missing component of a home alarm at least here in the UK.
note: we only have the small Ring Alarm pack offering here in the UK and its current price point is higher than the competition. We don't have the option to add a 3rd party siren in the UK, or any of the other additional sensors etc. We just have the motion and window/door sensors currently.
Awesome feedback @Murray! Thank you for sharing. As we value our neighbors' feedback, we've created a Feature Request board. Feel free to add this, and any future feature requests, there. This will help us to organize and share your requests with our teams here, as well as allow other neighbors to comment and add interest, all in one place.
Just toda6 found out another major competitor for Ring in th3 UK, is about to market a Alarm solution that is almost identical to Rings, but comes with an external siren as standard!! They have a large install base already for heating, camera, lights, sensors etc. You guys will loose out.
