Hey @Jsd ! I've moved your feature request over to this thread with the other amazing app related requests.
Thank you everyone for sharing and entrusting your feature requests with the Community, and rest assure we're sharing these with the team in detail! Keep the great feedback coming
Hello, a few weeks ago I notice that the icons in my (android) status bar have changed. It used to be that the icon triggered by a motion alert was a person walking and the icon for a doorbell ring was a bell. Now they are both big rounded-edge rectangles (with the word "ring" inside them but so tiny it's virtually invisible). I can't imagine why somebody thought it would be a good idea to change the informative icons into a big white rectangle. Please revert. Thanks!
PS: One more change you made, on the Dashboard, the "Neighbors" tile, it used to be that if there were new events, the text was red, otherwise "0 new events" was black. Now it's always red and I actually have to read the tiny number to see if there's anything new there or not. Please go back to only having red text if there are really new events. Thanks again.
Hi, when I'm reviewing my recordings in my Event History on my android phone, if I'm trying to view the videos from a while back, I scroll down to find the one I want, I look at it, then when I press Back to go back to the list (because most likely I want to see the chronologically next video), the app goes back to the top (most recent) in the Event History. This is very annoying; please do not scroll the list after I return from viewing a video, leave the list right where it was so I can easily select the next adjacent video without having to scroll down and try to find where I was just at. Thanks!
I wish there was a way to prioritize a ringing doorbell notification. If there is a motion notificaiton right after someone presses my doorbell then it overrides the doorbell notification.
I feel this app needs to allow us to view more than just one camera at a time. If I'm looking at 1 camera and have another go off... I have at least a 12 second delay. and I know it's not my internet/wifi... I have a dedicated monitor for CCTV and am trying a floodlight intergration route. I feel multi view mode is very important to maintaining 360 degree view of my surroundings. Not that I'm paranoid or anything. But it's nice to know while you're out and about... Neh??
So as not to create multiple threads...
A couple more things I think will be great for the us, the end user:
The ability to implement an auto matic alarm for it's own specific range threshold... something an attacker would believe is a regular full on security system. I can't be the only one that is a hard sleeper in this world... orientation is very hard before coffee... and for me to wake up in the middle of a sleep... Blasphemy...!!
While we set up our motion detection zones, the ability to touch on the line and add more points of movable intrests, a smaller more defined threshold of contact areas, and more options while only being limited to 3 zones per camera. even if it is a plus feature... but if it is let me know and I'll change my opinion...
Not much we can do about the current technology. But the pixellation in the outside corners of the camers is pretty grand.
I recall the older (pre-1990's) floodlight motion sensors being able to pick up a frog hopping across the backyard at 30 feet away... while still ignoring the bugs/dust... Maybe implement some of that technology into the new tech??
We need more control at the Computer... Way more processing power that any phone on the market... A little more effort into the computer app would be appreciated... You are truely limited to basic functions while you have more available to you at a computer....
For the next model. The infrared is way to jumbled together... Ye's it's a spot beam but if you look at it in night mode it has a bit of room to spread for the same amount of IR LEDs...
This is a review and thought about the Ring Floodlight Camera from an individual not affiliated with the company. All opinions are my own of the product and not that of another corperation. Just an outside look of an individual that thinks security and how to make it better.
This was a message meant for Requested Features...
I've moved these outstanding requests over to our feature request thread to ensure all of these stay in one place, for neighbors and for our team to see.
@tx_mountaineer In regards to GE switches and scheduling, Alexa routines will allow your devices to respond to the time of day, if a Doorbell is rung or senses motion for instance. An Alexa device is not required for this as the Alexa app is capable of carrying out these routines. However, there is no feature which changes the state of the switch based off of the Alarm mode, nor can a routine be made based off of security state (Disarmed, Home, Away), at this time.
