Re: Doorbells Feature Request

There is one main app called Ring.
There is a new one for quick views called Rapid Ring that mainly opens views quicker. You only need the Ring app

Filter videos in the app by time

My camera records video throughout the day and night. It would be useful to be able to filter to the app to show only videos for a specific time period e.g. 12am to 8am, to check if anyone had tried the door ring the night.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request - linked motion sensor problem

It appears that when a Smart Lighting motion sensor is linked to the doorbell 2, the doorbell
or possibly the Ring server will not respond to the doorbell button being pressed while the doorbell is recording video in response to motion being detected by the linked motion sensor.

My request is that when the doorbell button is pressed, the video recording due to the linked motion sensor be immediately stopped and the Ring system respond as it should when the button is pushed. Thanks

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

In public there is no expectation of privacy. So recording shouldn’t be a problem.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

My request is that you revert to the old firmware so that I don't get false motion notifications all day.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

Jennifer,

 

Thank you for asking for user feedback.  My first Ring purchase was the peephole doorbell camera.  This prompted me to purchase the Ring alarm.  When visitors come to my home, they do not know where the doorbell button is.  Since there is a light around the button, why could it not glow white to signify to visitors that this is the doorbell.  I understand it will impact battery life, and i'm happy to charge it a bit more frequently if it meant that I get useage of the peephole doorbell.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

So I've been a happy Skybell owner for a few years now, I chose them because I didn't need to pay for a monthly plan.  Since then, I've been moving into the Amazon Echo ecosystem, and I figure that one of these days I'll switch to a Ring -- I'm pretty impressed with your product, as I've helped a few friends set up theirs.

There's one feature I'm waiting for.  I want Alexa to answer the door.

I'm not talking about asking Alexa to answer the door.  I want her to speak through the Ring when the button is pressed.  "Hello, I'm Alexa.  Who are you here to see?"  "OK, I'll let Bob know you're here.
Alexa, I'm sure, is smart enough to sort out unwanted solicitors too.

 

You make that happen, and I'll buy one tomorrow Smiley Happy

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

Just make them work reliably.....  That would be a start

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

I just got the Ring Doorbell 2 bundled with the Echo Show 5.  I guess because they were being sold together I assumed they would have better intergration.  

 

I would love it if when someone rang the doorbell the Echo show would just automatically show the video feed.  having to ask it to show it and then wait for it to access ring is kind of a pain in the butt.

 

thanks!

88 replies. I’m sure it’s been suggested already but

Here goes

I would love to see a micro SD slot for local cache capacity could determine amount of video stored

Thieves are smart and jamming Wifi is easy. Local SD card for cache would help fill that gap. Cache all video to SD first then sync to cloud. Might even help with battery life, wifi radios are power hogs.

My DLSR camera can record hours of 4K video to my sdCARDS. Just a suggestion
