Doorbells Feature Request

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

Second this request. This feature feels like a no-brainer. I was surprised to see that we couldn't change the tone played by the outdoor bell itself.

Announcements

It would be good if we had a feature to create an announcement to play when a caller pressed the doorbell, this would hopefully keep the caller there patiently waiting while we connect in to chat to them (if we are out of the house), and would help where we have slow/busy connections to our phones.

A pre-set or recorded message such as "Hello, please wait a few moments while we come to the door, if we are not at home we will speak to you over the intercom, just be a moment"

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

I would really love to have the feature that when the doorbell is ringed, Amazon Echo Show can display the view directly, rather than me asking Alexa to show me the image.

I am so onboard with this idea.  For whatever reason, it can take up to 30 seconds for my phone to connect to the doorbell, etc, so it's not uncommon that people have already walked away. 

 

Please give serious consideration to adding this feature.  :-)

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

It would be nice to have an option to see what exactly triggered the motion sensor, i.e. "Motion Tagging" with a green box outlining what triggered the sensor or something.

 

I am often left wondering what exactly triggered the sensor, and subsequently how I need to adjust the sensitivity or move objects that are constantly triggering the sensor. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

I have problems when on cell networks that aren't in the city.
 

Since the video goes to the servers before my phone,  i would love if you allow us to set lower quality video viewing from our cell network.  I have alot of locations where i am unable to connect due to slower speeds.  I get the notification but it fails to connect.  My other apps work fine, but you don't always need hd video to see who is at your door.  Maybe you need to work on buffering, since youtube videos work.

Try the Rapid Ring app. It loads faster and only has cam views, also alerts.

"Works With" Lutron Caseta

I'd like to see the Ring Motion sensor and Button be compatible with Lutron Caseta.

When the Ring detects motion it would turn on lights connected to the Caseta system of dimmers.

I have it working though a Routine in the Alexa app. 

 

Because I have Lutron Caseta Dimmers and Amazon Echo/Alexa, I was able to use the Alexa app to make this work:
1.  When someone pushes the front door bell, living room lights turn on.
2.  When the back door bell detects motion, office lights turn on.
 
It would be much simplier to have "Works With" Caseta in the Ring app

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

It would be great if there were separate volume controls for the chime sound and speech coming from the doorbell. When there is a ring chime indoors, the the chime sound from the doorbell outside doesn't need to be so loud that it can be heard half a block away.

Yes the chime volume can be reduced, but then speech coming from the doorbell is essentially inaudible. My experience is with the doorbell 2.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

Thanks i installed it and it does load much faster.  I will try it when i am in worse coverage to see if it helps with my problem.
