delay on alarms for away mode



Just bought a ring alarm, live chat is down so I need your help.  I have contact sensors on  my front and back doors, but is there a way to put a delay on only the front door, but have the back door and teh 2 sensors trigger the alarm immediately?  Seems madness to have an alarm where someone breaking in upstairs will have the courtesy of a 30 second warning!

Re: delay on alarms for away mode

Hi @bendavis ! Take a look at this Youtube Video talking about Contact Sensor Placement Settings. 


You can also alter the settings by going in the App to Device > Select the Sensor you wish to change > Settings Gear > Change placement to main door. Those devices will now use your entry / exit delay timer.  Let me know if this helps or you need more information Smiley Happy
