Doorbells Feature Request

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

Here's something else that I'd like to see -- more integration and control with IFTTT.  For example, it would be nice to be able to control/configure the Ring doorbell via IFTTT.  I could see doing something like setting up a button in the house that would trigger an IFTTT event, and that event could turn on/off motion detection on the Ring doorbell.  (I'm not a big fan of using apps for everything -- I'd rather have a physical button I could press to control the configuration of the doorbell.)

Something to think about... 

Cheers.

Oh, sorry to hear that.  Yeah, it's a nice feature that should be added to Ring 2 (if possible).

Good luck.  :-)

Facial recognition where you can add your family, friends or others whom often visit and then when the Ring Doorbell recognises them instead of getting a 'someone is at your front door' or 'There is motion at your front door' notification it could say for example 'John Smith is at your front door' or 'John Smith detected at your front door'.

 

Would also be cool if it could recognise postal company uniforms or that someone is carrying a parcel and notify you 'Delivery/Parcel is at your front door' or something along those lines.

 

Also local recording and having the option to remove the ring logo or making it smaller atleast from your recordings.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

Hello - I too wear hearing aids that are paired to my iPhone as well.  I experience similar problems with audio misdirection.  As JonS said, it can be embarassing in a group (for your development team, think standing in a scrum standup when a stray noise emerges from a team member's phone while presenting your cards is progress..all eyes on you my friends!).  Seriously, I have a reasonably large investment in Ring; doorbells, alarm system, 10 cameras, integrated door locks - i think you get the point.  I really do love the Ring products and compay as a whole.  Please continue down the path of enabling those that are impaired in some way.

 

Thanks!!

Option to disable motion detection according to a schedule.

I know it is possible to pause alerts using Motion Settings, and that I can snooze alerts with Motion Snooze. However, my Video Doorbell 2 runs on battery power only, and I have to replace the battery once every few days. I can't use solar with it because it's on a porch where it simply won't receive enough sun. I don't think I have a spot for it with sufficient direct sun.

 

My wife or myself are almost always home, so we're only really concerned about motion detection at night. There appears to be no way to disable motion detection (not just alerts!) according to a schedule. That seems like a handy feature to me, and will spare my battery.

Re: Option to disable motion detection according to a schedule.

That would be cool.  I ended up drilling a hole in the wall to run power to the doorbell as the battery changing was driving me nuts.

I have seriously considered doing the same .. but need to save up a series of electrical chores for an electrician because I won't touch that stuff.

Re: Option to disable motion detection according to a schedule.

when i'm home, I disable the 3 zones in settings of each device. This not only stops alerts, but no filming either.  It's a bit tedious but takes  a few seconds. You have to remember to turn them back on when you leave.  No battery should drain like you are describing.

 

I had a Ring2 on my garage door facing my house. Since there was no doorbell involved, I added a 8-24 volt transformer and resister.  Then I ran doorbell wire to the ring2.  I don't have a doorbell so the transformer just charges the Ring 2.  Now it's always at 100% charge.

All this was under $20.00 for the transformer and resister and wire.

Re: Doorbells Feature Request

In the Ring App I'm not able to load my live feed. I had to download a 2nd app to have this happen. I shouldn't have to have two apps just to see what is going on. If there was an emergency I wouldn't have known without reading blogs on this 2nd app I had to download. Is there anyway to update the original app to do all the correct functions where a 2nd app isn't necessary?
