Hey @Techboy. We do not have an ETA at this time for the Retrofit Alarm Kit in the UK. If we are able to bring this to our neighbors in the future, we will make sure to post an update in the News and Announcements section. Smiley Happy

Has there been any update on this? I am really keen to get this kit but would really benefit from the retrokit as I already have sensors everywhere.

Could I even purchase the American kit and bring it to the UK?

Hey @rdillon84, happy to chime in for Chelsea here. The Retrofit Kit is not designed to be used in the UK, as the hardware is not compatible with the UK version of the Ring Alarm system. Additionally, it may not meet local guidelines and regulations concerning home alarm systems, so it is not recommended to purchase it in the US to try and use in the UK. I'd suggest keeping an eye on the News and Announcements board for any updates on new product releases. Smiley Happy

Just adding support to rdillon84’s question. I am sure there are many others as well who are really keen to upgrade their wired alarm system to make it ‘Ring compatible’ without just making their original (expensive) systems redundant and forking out full whack for a new complete set. Come on Ring, sort it out. Like you have already done for our cousins across the pond!

Any Update on this? I'm also desperate for a UK version of the retrofit kit.

 

I get that the development team might not want to publish a release date but can you at least confirm if it is the intension to release a UK version?

 

John.

Yep, I'm trying to decide whether to get the Ring Alarm, buy an upgraded panel for my old one or buy simplisafe. If you can tell me its on its way I'll await the retrofit kit.

Is it definitely in plan? Is it safe to grab a Black Friday deal for the alarm system, with complete confidence that the kit will definitely be availble in the future in the UK?

Hey neighbors! We do not have any news or information to share on a release of the Retrofit Alarm Kit in the UK. You can always monitor the UK News and Announcements board for any updates or product releases, as we'll be sure to post there.
