Feature request: Turn on lights at sunset based on location

There should be a light schedule option to turn on lights at sunset based on location?

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I was coming here to also suggest a chirp. Especially if you could set it to occur specifically at night. It seems like it would be the perfect way to get an approachers attention, make them look directly at the camera, and most likely go away.

camera recording

I just entered this community today and like to say hello to all of you.

I've already read some topics concerning the spotlight cam recording feature but I'd like to add a new one.

Since my cam watches my backyard and I very frequently go in and out per day, it makes an overload of unnessesary movies and motion alarms. I know motion can be turned of, but recordings can not.

So what I need, and probably much more neighbours, is an extra swipe button in the app, just like the one for lights, ring and motion alerts, that turns off the recordings (or the recordings ánd the motions).That new feature would save a lot of battery power.

Would you please consider to make such a button?

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I would love a thumbnail/snapshot along with an alert on all mobile notifications.
I don’t like going into the app and waiting for it to load just to discover that the trees were blowing or one of my [grown] kids is walking to the front door.

I have literally given up and disabled notifications entirely. It’s pathetic how useless notifications are.

Add a toggle to the Motion Scehdule rule to also disable recording.  Currently the schedule rule only disables motion alerts.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

The ability to disable recording has been a popular feature request from many neighbors. We're happy to announce an upcoming feature called Modes gives users the option to control all their devices based on a 'home', 'away', or 'disarmed' mode, including the ability to disable recording. 

 

@longbody I've moved your post over to this board with all the other great requests, so it can be included when we share these with the team. Check out our Community post about Modes to learn more Smiley Happy

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

I would love to be able to schedule motion sensativity as well. My cam is set up in my driveway and I want to set a schedule where I can have motion sensors on max at night, and on medium or low during the day when cars, and people are going by. Have tons of video each day unless I manually turn it down.

Re: Video events

I also get hits all night long because of cats.  I have a long verandah on the front of my house with the door in the middle.  Cats continuously walk past the video camera triggering alerts, lights, recording, etc.   I used to program for a living and it wouldn't be too hard to differentiate motion coming from something the size of a bread box (cat, etc), versus a human.  As a result I have all my alerts scheduled off at night,  which defeats the purpose of having a security camera.   Because of this alone I find it hard to recommend the Ring system to anyone who has animals/critters prowling around at night.

Re: Security Cams Feature Request

Is there a plan to add 'rotate video' for the 3rd generation stick up plug-in camera so they can be mounted upside down on an external roof eave?
