Security Cams Feature Request

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I'd like to request the ability to see when my Spotlight Cam Battery was last charged to 100% or when the camera itself was offline. We are waiting on our secondary battery, but didn't make a note of when we last charged the one we have. It would help us gauge if the battery is getting excessively drained at any point in time or when it's time to order a new battery. I don't think I can find this information anywhere in my app or in the activity history. 


I'd also like to piggy back off a few other requests, and request that when motion is snoozed for x amount of time, either do not record events at all, or at least do not initiate the spotlight if motion is detected and the time is within the spotlight schedule. I sit outside where the camera is, and while I don't mind snoozing the notificactions for a while, it is a burden to constantly be blinded with the light anytime I stand up or cause a bit of motion.

Re: Video events

@Marley_Ring

 

Is there an update on a Ring API that will allow me to turn the Floodlight on/off outside of the Ring app?

 

In this thread, new users are starting to post having issues with the Light Schedule:

I am currently not experiencing an issue but if the problem is re-surfacing, an API would solve the issue for me.

Different schedule for different motion zones

I’d like a feature to be able to have a different schedule for different motion zones especially for my floodlight cam. For the zone immediately next to my house, I would like motion alerts 24/7. However, for motion alerts at the street, I would only like motion alerts during sleeping hours to catch people checking cars at 3-4am. Naturally, I’d like to have no motion alerts in the street during waking hours. Currently, I can only schedule all my zones to send motion alerts together and not separately.

Set zoom level flood light cam

Ring Developers can you create a new feature with the floodlight cam that will allow you to set the zoom level on the camera other than the default. Also when you're watching a recording can you zoom in and out by pinching the screen

Security Cam Feature Request

I would love to have the ability to have an interactive screen that I can monitor just my cameras.  I've been wanting to place a touch screen monitor (using raspberry pi) or even an iPad or other tablet on a wall in my kitchen to display my cameras.  I know I could just use the app on an iPad but then my alarm is available for anyone to disarm or arm.  I would like to just have a touchscreen that displays my cameras, that allows me to select any camera and zoom in on activity.  If someone is pulling into my driveway, I can select that camera and see who it is.  If they approach my door and ring my doorbell, I can select that camera.... and so on.  

 

I replaced all of my flood lights with the Ring floodlights (without the camera) and now would like to add a camera to those areas.  I would like a mod kit to allow me to add a camera above (or below) the existing floodlight.  Ideally, a hardwired camera that would wire into the same junction box and mount as the existing flood lights.  Which brings me to my next feature request;  I love the Stick-up cam design and I appreciate the various options for power (PoE, USB, plug-in) but I would love the option to hardwire them.  This could be as simple as a mini USB converter with wires that connect to your existing junction box wires.  Ideally, nothing would need to be modified on the camera itself.  I understand that the spotlight camera was just released with this feature, but I dont need the spotlight siince I have the flood lights.  

 

At this point my options are:

  1. Throw away the floodlights and replace them all with $250 Flood light Cameras (unlikely).
  2. Spend $200 on Spotlight Cameras and find a way to modify the exisiting flood lights on my own to allow me to hardwire them. (Less Unlikely)
  3. Buy $99 Stick-up Cameras and use PoE (more likely).  However, if hardwired was an option with this camera, I would definitely go that route.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I totally agree. It's a pain to have to turn on indoor cameras every time we leave the house and set the alarm.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Just want to add my support to this suggestion:

 

PLEASE add the ability to arm/disarm indoor cameras along with the security system. It's a pain to have to do it manually, and I'm guessing more than a few customers don't want their indoor cameras recording them when they're home.

 

Thank you!

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

There is a mode setting coming soon that will allow the settings for cameras for each mode.

Stick Up Camera "Record Motion" per a Schedule, and Camera Grouping Control

I have a Ring Video Doorbell and three Stick Up Cameras (battery version) that I’ve now used for several months..  I understand that you can already control the "MOTION ALERTS" based on a pre-determined schedule set under Motion Settings > Advanced Settings > Motion Schedule button.  However, I would like to request a similar feature allowing the Stick Up Camera's "RECORD MOTION" to be enabled / disabled (in other words, power them up / down to preserve battery life) on a pre-determined schedule as well.  Also, it is currently awkward to have to cycle through the cameras one-at-a-time to power them up or down, or otherwise change any settings so allowing the cameras to be grouped into one or more groups would be extremely valuable as well.  For example, being able to control "RECORD MOTION" for multiple cameras with a single click, as well as doing so per a schedule as described above would be most helpful.  Thanks for your consideration!
