Monnow, Sorry but I am new to the Ring Community forums but not new to Ring, Alexa, and Samsung's Smarthings. I have two locations that I have Ring cameras setup and have intergrated them into the Smartthings app. Did you see or read something that indicates that this intergration will cease to work something in the future?
What I want to see is the Ring Security hub intergrated into Smartthings. That is what I see as missing. Can the ring moderator comment on that? thanks
Hi rckymtfun, I have a few different cameras. The older models are showing up in Smartthings but the newer models are not.
I have two Ring Spotlight Cameras for the front yard. I just purchased one of the two in December. The model is slightly different. The new camera as well as two new indoor stickup cameras, do not show up.
Monnow; I just purchased, in December, my Ring Doorbell Pro and two Floodlight Cameras for a 2nd home. All were just installed at the beginning of January and all can be seen through Smartthings. I just recently purchased 4 Spotlight Cameras with Solar panels and they are waiting for me to install them. Hopefully they all can also be seen from within Smartthings.
I have to admit my 1st home has numerios ring cameras but all were purchsed in 2018/2019 and also can be seen in Smartthings.
I do remember that the Floodlight Cams that were installed in the 2nd home went through updates when then came online. Maybe that is the issue for yours.
Maybe the Moderator can give us an update on any intergration issues.
That the Ring Alarm (or hub as you called it) does not integrate with SmartThings has been very frustrating. If I could have this integration my home automation + home security would be complete.
I also have Smarthings Hub and the "security camera" products are integrated (i.e., Ring Doorbell 2 and Floodlight Cam); however, the sensors tied to the Ring Security are not integrated. I wish they were; however, in the interim I do have Echo devices and use the Smarthings integration with Alexa to bring these together. The problem has been that SmartThings allows multiple locations and the Alexa Skills app for Smarthings only allows connection to a single Smarthings Hub. I have done numerous "workarounds" trying to get things to work and it has necessitated setting up a separate Amazon Alexa account at our vacation home and using an old phone no longer "activated" as a "remote" to set everything up and operate the apps.
Hopefully, in the future Amazon will realize there is a need to control multiple locations!
