We need a second form of two-factor authentication as a backup BADLY. Consider the following scenario: you are travelling aboard, without access to your USA phone number. You have NO WAY to get your two-factor authentication code!!!
I would love for the app to show a screencapture/still of whatever set off the motion detector, because the live-view takes too long to load.
I have a driveway spotlight camera, and get notifications all day long, but usually from stray cats walking by. The app's live-view takes about 5 seconds to load, so by the time I can see it, the cat has moved on and not visible. So I have wait for the video to process completely to watch and confirm what caused the notification. I've started a work-around, which is, instead of clicking on the notification, I go into the ring app to see the last screen shot on my dashboard. That way I can see very quickly what triggered the notification without waiting minutes for the video. It would be wonderful if the notification itself showed a screengrab like this, or that it gave the option to click through to see a screengrab, to avoid missing the action while the video processes, and to save having to do the workaround which is a few steps more for my fingers! Thanks!
It would be great to have a more useful alarm dashboard. An alternating message stream giving me the list of sensors that are open isn't very helpful. How about a grid with indicator lights (red/green) with options for showing by room or by sensor type. You could also provide a list of open sensors instead of the flashing messages.
Obviously, this won't all fit on a screen with a camera thumbnail, which is why I'd like the dashboard to be configurable, so I can decide what I want to see where. Perhaps a two page dash, which can be used by swiping.
I keep getting alerts when my dogs are out in the yard. I tried setting up the motion zones so that they are high enough that the dogs don't get noticed. But I'm still getting the alerts. Here is my request.
1. have a red box or something track the items where ring is detecting motion
2. Allow the motion zone to be superimposed over videos or live stream so that you can better adjust your zones to avoid common motion.
Love the ability to add lights and switches to the Ring Alarm System. It would be really useful to add status and ability to turn on and off from the Dashboard Screen vs having to drill down to the alarm devices screen. IOS user. Thanks
