Ring App Feature Request

Hi neighbors! At Ring, we take feedback and feature request very seriously. That's why we're creating this special post, where you can share any wish list items you'd like to go with your current Ring App, whether for Android or iOS. We'll keep this post pinned to the top of the Ring App board so you can easily access it.  Be sure to do a quick search and see if your item is already on the list to avoid duplicates. If it is, go ahead and give it a 'kudo' so we know that is what you want too! 
 

Please note, that anything you disclose to us by commenting on this post will be the property of Ring. Please see our Terms of Service for more information. We look forward to hearing your feature requests!

Re: Ring App Feature Request

Please add app (launcher) shortcuts to the Android app to allow easy access directly to cameras like the iOS app does with force touch. It's easy and while it won't come to all android versions, it would greatly increase the speed in accessing a camera feed directly.

Also, the notification should include the thumbnail photo. There's no reason why the notification can't contain the thumbnail that is used to populate the preview tile in the app (briefly, before it refreshes again because you opened the app).

Thanks!

Re: Ring App Feature Request

1. Like other leading seccurity camera's, one of the features missing from Ring is the ability for the camera to turn on / off the motion recording based on geo location of your mobile. when i' am at home, i dont want my ring stick up cams to be recording any motion. it should activate once i leave my house. 

 

2. I want to be able to see the live view through the ring website on a browser. 

 

3. Sometime i want to go through last few days of videos quickly so a timelapse of all my videos woul be great. I' am using my ring stick up cam as a baby monitor and dont have the time to go through all the captures from the day one by one. time lapse will allow me to check if everything was in order throughout the day without spending too much time on it.

 

4. why i' am not able to download videos and save for future. i want some of my baby videos to be saved permanently as memories. i dont see this feture anywhere.

5. Zoom into the recorded videos. i can do this on the live view, but it would be really good if that was possible with recorded videos as well.

 

6. face recognitition to not capture motions of known faces.

The ability to snooze motion alerts on all cameras (at a location) with one press.

 

Working in the yard, setting off 6 different cameras for 2 hours - an ios/android user should be able to snooze all of the camera alerts easily - rather than interacting with multiple alerts.

Disable Recording

I was very disappointed to learn that rercording cannot be disabled. I have 2 doorbells and 1 stick up cam and just fished mowing the lawn and some yard work. I had 67 recordings. You can disbale motion alerts, but not the recordings. I hope Ring is working on a solution for this. I guess I'll star pulling batteries.

Re: Disable Recording

Thanks for sharing @bampa67 ! This would make for an excellent feature request, so we moved your post to this apps feature request thread, and will certainly be sharing your wishes with the team.

Re: Ring App Feature Request

I wish I could create custom tones.  Actually what I wish was that there were Vibrations that could be used as an Alert instead of sounds.  I need to have my phone muted a lot and a Vibration could help a lot, especially a Vibration different from the normal phone Vibration.

 

As far as the tones, I have selected tones different than default, but if I close the app (but stay signed in), I get the default tones.  Is that normal?

Re: Ring App Feature Request

1. Snooze motion alerts on doorbell for desired time duration when a selected door sensor (ring alarm) is opened.

Use Case: I don't want an alert each time I step out of my own front door...

2. Allow this integration from Alexa to control motion alerts and other settings with more home integrations

3. Why can I not read sensor event information in my external smart home system yet? Needs an API. Right now my ring alarm system is only an alarm, but it has so many potential smart home scenarios...
