Ring App Feature Request

Re: Ring App Feature Request

Please please please ... add app controls for volume control and mute to the "playback" of events.  POOR USER DESIGN to make the user use overall phone/ring voume buttons to reduce the volume or mute playback of incidents.  Often I get events at work, and really just want to view the live or recorded playback, not needing to hear the audio.  Surprised this wasn't just obvious to original app designers.  Please???

Re: Ring App Feature Request

I agree with the thumbnail request.  The current issue is that when you click the motion notification, it opens up the camera live view.  The problem with this is by the time the camera loads, whatever caused the motion is long gone.  Please add thumbnail to show what triggered the motion so we do not have to open the app and wait for the video to upload to the cloud to see it.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

My ring cameras (3) are the least connected equipment in my smart home. Perhaps a niche request but the community is eager to develop new features and integration points, all they need is a proper open API (not a super closed ecosystem).

I also would like the ability to access video feeds directly, at least for wired devices (2 wired floodlight cams). The fact that I can't view a live feed for hours (it times out after a few minutes) makes the otherwise excellent product useless for many application. If I had the ability from the app to enable ONVIF protocol on the LAN, this would bring these cameras to a different level and I'd be the first to buy a few extra ones.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

For security cameras, if multiple motion zones are setup for a camera and those zones are named when an alert is triggered have it convey the name of the camera and zone name. Currently it will only provide camera name even if there are multiple zones created.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

Just like unlocking a lock using the physical keypad, have an Unlock of the lock in the app also cause the alarm to Disarm.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

The one feature that I miss about my former alarm system is the indication on the keypad that all the doors and windows are closed.  We really liked seeing that green light on the pannel last thing at night.
You could use a combination of the existing lights with just a software update.  Anything to indicate that all the contact sensors are closed.  That would be really nice and would add to the considerable convienence of the Ring system.  We all would use that feature daily.  Thanks.

Live feed of all thumbnails

I would like to have the option of the thumbnails in the dashboard showing live views, whether in the iOS app or OS X app, as this is a useful and common feature of video surveillance systems.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

Please update the Win10 app so it more closely matches the mobile apps. It doesn't seem to support any Alarm functions, Doorbell Motion Snooze, Neighborhood Alerts...etc.

 

Thanks for considering.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

It would be handy if you could enable/disable motion alerts for specific motion zones. I would like to have one motion zone always record motion however I only want to receive alerts if motion is detected in a different zone. It would be nice if the motion alert contained a thumbnail of the motion that caused it to trigger as well.

 

Additionally, it would be nice if I could mute the outside chime when the doorbell is pressed.
