I just set up my ring floodlight and also thought the siren was pathetic. I live in a neighborhood where the properties are all over 10 acres, my neighbors wouldn't even hear this siren over a moderate wind with the trees rustling...and if they are indoors they probably wouldn't hear it on a calm and quiet day...and it certainly wont be scaring away any nefarious people....they would likely just chuckle and continue what they came here for.
Unless I can find a way to increase the siren volume, it is completely useless for me. It's a joke as it stands now, I listen to music louder than that!
Having the same problem here. The audio on the two-way talk feature is choppy at best, so yelling at a porch pirate won't work. I'd like to atleast use the siren to scare them off, but the volume of the siren on the spotlight camera is so soft they probably won't even hear it. Begining to regret going with Ring instead of Nest. Hoping Ring takes customer feedback seriously so I don't have to swith to Nest.
Yep, I didnt even mention the choppy audio issue above. I have that too.
I'm going to try keeping my phone on the 5 frequency rather than the 2.4 from my router to see if that clears anything up. I know it wont help the siren but it may help other issues like the two way sound. These devices only work on 2.4 but most modern routers have 2.4 and 5. 5 is shorter range but if it separates any conflicting wifi signals/devices it may help.
I'll report back if I notice anything.
Meanwhile...the siren is an embarrasing joke. Like a child's toy sound.
Hi @Crafty42! Your Floodlight Cam siren should certainly be loud enough to hear within reasonable distance. The siren is only able to be triggered manually via the Siren toggle in the Ring app.
