Low Battery alert setting based on battery level.
One of the things that has irked me with the Ring doorbell, is when you try to go to Live View and get the message that Live View has been disabled due to low battery. It would be nice to be alerted when the battery gets to a level just above the point where Live view is going to be disabled.
So if Live View is disabeld when the battery reaches 5%, then tell me at 10% that battery is getting low. Or let me choose the Batery Low alert level so I don't lose my Live View feature.
Most of the time I am in a situation where I would like to be able to interact with the person at the door like a phone call, ie no video, or a quick look at the video, and then put the phone to my ear and have the phone go into phone audio mode.
Can this be put into the feature requests list.
I have my doorbell setup to capture video and alert me whenever motion is detected. As you can imagine, I receive alerts several times a day but typically ignore them and review saved video if/when needed.
A very useful feature that would, in my opinion, increase the capability/functionality and value of the Ring product is to have different alerts available with each motion zone. As an example, I could setup a zone like I have now, which would pickup pretty much anything. I would typically ignore those alerts and review saved footage when necessary. But I could also setup a zone for only my porch and a different alert from my larger area. If motion is detected from this zone I would receive a different alert (getting my attention) which might prompt viewing of live footage. It would also be useful for users as a more precise zone and different alert could be used to differentiate from a car driving by vs. an actual package delivery, etc. The user would then know the package was delivered and retrieve it since Ring confirmed that activity occurred within a more precise zone.
In addition to what I have described above, another enhancement would be for the custom zones/alerts to be able to be labeled. Whereas a zone like we have today (covering a very large area) might continue to appear as it does today, a more presice zone/alert would not only have a custom alert on the user's phone, but also display a custom message using the zone name (ie: "There is motion on your Front Porch") vs. simply using the Ring device name.
I'd like to be able to see the 5-10 seconds or so of video right BEFORE an event happens to trigger the motion or doorbell recording. Is there a way to configure this with a Ring doorbell ?? I've seen other video/doorbell products you can do this with.
