So far I've had your security system for a couple of months and I love it - easy to use and inexpensive in comparison to what else is out there. I have a feature/product request that I think would be incredibly interesting and useful.
Considering you already have smart lighting for outdoor use - I was wondering if there were any plans to create interior smart bulbs? Similar to other smart bulbs like the Philips Hue, I think having a first party "Ring smart bulb" would increase the system's versitility. Considering that many people already use lighting as a form of security around the house, it would add another feature that is aligned with the ecosystem you've created.
Features could include scheduled interior lighting times, automatically turning all lights on/off when arming/disarming, and turning all lights on in the event of the alarm going off. It's very similar to what you already have built for the exterior smart lighting - just interior for lighting a room. Additional lighting products would probably need to come along with it - like remote controls, dimmers, etc. I know that you already have smart switches that integrate with Ring, but this would definitely be next level.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hey @Alsmaster, after checking with my teams, it looks like we have pushed back this release date at this time for in store options. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and I'm glad you have asked! My team has informed me that the product will be available only online homedepot.com, ring.com, and amazon.com on the same release date of April 1st, 2020! This is due to the recent global concerns happening right now, which will delay in store availability only for now. We will make sure to keep our neighbors updated with more information when it is available in stores!
My attempts to purchase today have failed. The products are not listed on Ring.com, HomeDepot.com, or Amazon.com. If these are delayed due to COVID-19, this is understandable. Please publish updated release date. Thank You.
Hey neighbors! Thanks for reaching out to us about this. We are glad you are as excited about these new Ring Smart Lighting products as we are. At Ring, we are always innovating and developing new security devices and services. However, we only bring them to market when we are confident they will best empower our neighbors with an affordable, effective way to monitor and secure their homes. We hope you understand this delay, and I will continue to keep you updated as soon as these are available.
