Looking to have some alarm integration with Smartthings. Simple things like, if smoke/co alarm, turn on lights, unlock doors. Or if intrusion alarm, turn on lights etc.
Hey @Anonymous, this is a great idea to keep your ‘Ring of security’ robust and automated! What you are looking to obtain is going to be best accomplished with tools like IFTTT, recipe based plugins, or even 3rd party apps.
We are working to bring as many integration and automation features as possible in the future, but for now specific rules can be implemented through various external methods.
Keep an eye on this thread in hopes that neighbors out there who have succeeded in this functionality might respond with some helpful tips!
I would love to see more intergration with Ring Alarm inside SmartThings. I know this a tough area to expand as my guess Ring does want anything open for errors and false alarms which makes perfect sense but it would be great to have some control over some features.
Let me talk to my team and see whats on the roadmap
I have done some external integrations but would like an offical one.
Some simple things I did with my old system:
Fire alarm will turn on lights, turn off smart plugs (for instance, the one tied into my pellet stove), and unlock the doors.
Intrustion alarm: Turn on lights and/or flash lights
@Anonymous good feedback! We'll pass this along to the team and update you with more information when it comes.
Hi @Evanesq, Ring is currently exploring integration opportunities with a number of partners based on what will best empower our neighbors with affordable, effective ways to monitor their homes. Going forward, we will announce these partnerships as soon as they are ready.
Keep us posted neighbors on what integrations you're most interested in!
One of the main reasons I went with Ring was for the smartthings intergration. Removing that partnership would require me to change over to a different camera inorder to keep the seemless intergration with my other IOT devices. As it is now, I can't seem to intergrate the new indoor stickup camera with Smartthings. I may have to return them if I cannot intergrate them. Please let me know.
