Security Cams Feature Request

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

A legitimate use case exists where a customer would want to maintain a persistent Live View. Meaning, we would like to be able to configure the timeout session for Live View or be able to remove the timeout. Many of us purchased the StickUp cams to continuously monitor our kids playing outside or Babies (as depicted by your marketing literature). This is especially useful for sick Babies or Babies/Kids with serious medical conditions who require monitoring.  The Motion alerts does not help in these situations. And of-course we can think of many more use cases for such a feature which been around for a very long time.

 

Please give this serious consideration if it's not already in your product roadmap. Ring competitors offer this feature so I suspect there is lost opportunity for Ring the longer this feature is not available. Any acknowledgment would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I was gifted a New Stick Up Cam Battery a few months ago.  It was awesome, until now.  I live in Minnesota.  We're hitting our high for the week today at 32F, with a low of -10F a couple days ago.  As you can imagin, my battery life is not doing to well.  I'm looking into a getting a solar panel to charge the device when the sun is up, but my understanding is that the battery may not take a charge below 32F.  So this probably won't help me at all.  Currenly I am pulling the battery and charging it over night once a week.  I'd prefer to not have to do this at all.  Is there a battery that can accept a charge at lower tempuratures in developement?  Energy transfer can create heat and and possibly raise the temp of the battery to sufficient levels to accept a charge or even retain a charge longer.  I'd really like Ring to put some priority on cold climate taylored devices.  We don't all live in sunny California and after a quick browse of this forum, I'm definitly not alone.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

User would like the ability to make all ring devices sound the alarm at once. This way if user is notified of movement on a cam and after viewing the user wants to alarm the unwanted intruder. Instead of that cams single alarm the user should have a button to sound all devices everywhere so that the unwanted intruder hears the sound coming from several areas. Several alarm sounds is better then one single alarm sound. Old alarm systems have always had 1 single alarm sound device and now with today's technology users should be able to have several alarms sounding at once.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I would like to  be able to disable the siren completely on my Security Cam Mount hardwired version.  I am concerned about it going off without me triggering it. Because I live in a community where the homes are pretty much on top of each other, a siren going off, particularly if I am not home, would be very disruptive and annoying.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Since Ring has migrated to inside the house, it would be really good to add audio detection features.

Some use cases:

1. baby room monitor - being alerted to the baby crying

2. four-legged alarm system -- being alerted to barking dogs

3. fire / CO alarm detection -- being alerted when the fire/CO alarm sounds

4. glass break detection -- being alerted if the sound of breaking glass is heard

 

These aren't always accompanied by detectable motion, so having the mic paying attention would be good, too.

 

Also note, this functionality is available in both Nest and Wyze products.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I'd like a feature to control turning ON the lights during motion sensing only within a specific time window. 

 

If I'm out an about during early evening hours (after dusk) in front of the camera, I don't want lights to be triggered.

 

Turning on lights DUE TO MOTION SENSING, should be controllable. I want lights to come on only between say, 1am - 4am when there's likely a legitimate threat for intrusion, etc. 

So I want a setting to say, turn on lights due to motion sensing only between start time and end time.

 

It would be nice, if there's a toggle/radio button in the app that allows me to indicate that the light should be turned on/off ONLY DUE TO MOTION SENSING (since there's already an option under "Light Settings" to leave the light constantly on/off, without motion sensing, between a certain time slot). Hope this makes sense.  Thanks!

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I have the spotlight cam and would like the same option.  The ability to schedule when the spotlight can be triggered.  I purposely set up my landscape lighting at the front of my house so that the entire area including the front door is subtly lit when the landscape lights are on.  During that time I don't need the spotlight to come on when someone comes to the door, but when the landscape lighting goes off (e.g. 11:45 pm), that's when I would arm the spot light to react to motion (until sunrise), but I wouldn't expect much activity at the front door overnight.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Would love a longer power cord for the wired Indoor Camera. I want to put one up high in a room with 12 foot ceilings. The included cord is not anywhere near long enough to reach the nearest outlet and so I have to choose between awkwardly using extension cords or put it in a much less ideal location. A longer cord would be very helpful, even if it's an after market option.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

You can purchase a longer cord as long as it matches the same electric requirements. Ring doesn't sell them but many can be found on Amazon and such.

I see after market cords for the stick up camera and spotlight/flood lights but not for the wired indoor camera.
