I would love to be able to control what times the motion-detecting lights turn on.
I currently have it set to receive motion alerts from 5PM to 6AM but I'd only want the motion-detecting lights to turn on between a certain time within that time frame.
I have older generation stuck up cams in black and want to take advantage of the new stick up cams. Is there a plan to provide these in black? Currently they are white only.
I often times face the problem of looking back at the video to determine what caused the camera to trigger the alerts/recordings. It would be nice to have a feature that shows the area in red bounding box like heads up displays in cars or even computer vision technologies identitifying things in real-time. That way I can then "train" the camera to better detect those objects in the future.
There should be a way to completely auto disable indoor (and outdoor) cams when the alarm is disabled. At the very least disable the notification when the alarm is off.
Just like a motion detector on every alarm in the world is disabled when the alarm is turned off. I know you can snooze it, I know you can schedule it, this is not what I am asking for.
On my last alarm system when I come in the door, disable the alarm, all notifications were also disabled. I could choose which ones I wanted disabled as well. This is the most convient way to manage the alarm system. This way myself, my family and my dogs arent constantly setting off the notifications. Because we have mulitple devices that manage the alarm system, without this feature people who are not at home have to snooze the alerts.
Adding a feature to automatically disable notifications when the alarm is disabled would make this one of the best systems out there.
Please change record length to equal actual motion sensing length. Have user settable to stop recording after x seconds of no motion detected.
eg. if it takes 2 min to come up driveway and person to get out of car walk up to door then record 2 min. If it takes 20 sec to drive up and person talks on phone for 30 sec and then gets out then record 20sec. Then new recording upon new motion for 30 sec.
I would like the ability to disable selected indoor cam when the alarm is on 'Disarm' mode. Right now these cameras pick up motion in all modes.
I would like to be able to have the cam ignore items smaller than a cat/dog, so the alarm doesn't go off all the time, and it would save a lot of battery as well.
Had my 2 Ring Spotlight cameras for about 6 months now! Love them, but the one update everyone is waiting for " Longer Adjustable Recording" needs to happen! We wouldn't be without some sort of CCTV now. That being said I'm considering changing my Ring Cams for something else, I need to ability to record for longer after motion events! Anyone else?

Recommended updates to Battery Powered Spotlight Camera
#1 -- (toggle) continous video recording if triggered if battery is more than 60% (changable)
#2 -- update options to match the indoor cam or Doorbell Pro
#1 -- change mount on the "Battery" to match the one on the "mount"
I'm asking for these changes because I want a traditional on/off floodlight with a switch.
If motion is detected I want it recorded continously, but I don't want have on/off lights all the time. I would use the AC power provided to the traditional floodlight to keep the batteries charged "DC converter", but still have the abillity to use a "battery" cam most of the time.
Alternative -- change the Floodlight Camera to accept battery packs and use "alt mode"
In Alt mode the switch will turn off/on the floodlight but no longer effect the camera on battery. The battery would charge whenever the floodlights are turned on.
Simple really. (BTW I don't want my flood light coming on constantly and I'm not using my phone to turn on a light.)
Alternative -- create a switch that provided "constant" power to the Floodlight cam but sends a constant signal over the AC power to be always on. The motion sensor could be dulled all the way down. When the signal stops the floodlight turns off ... but the camera has constant power. Again shouldn't be hard. --I'm looking at the GE switch, but it needs to work without wifi/internet-- Also there should be an option to set the floodlight brightness at three levels: motion detected quick/ motion detected still "15sec" or alarm triggered/general floodlight switch.
I want to be able to snooze the indoor cameras for longer than 4 hours. In fact, I want to schedule when they are snoozed, or not, and have the opportunity to press a button to make them active. (Say, if I have to run to the store, or something, during the normally "snoozed" time.)
