Thank you for sharing this experience in detail @F50! I've researched this further to understand the intended functionality and difference between a ring push following regular motion, and a ring push following a linked event trigger.
Linked device operations are intended to take priority as it is a direct request rule through the app set by our neighbors. As the Linked devices feature allows for multiple operations to be carried out upon a single trigger, the functionality may vary based on a number of devices, settings, and initial trigger. While this is in reference to the recording aspect of things, it does not clarify the ding notification and chimes functionality.
Of course, I've shared this feedback with the team, who are always looking to improve our features and devices. Thanks again!
just a note to support this request. It's great that the pathlight can trigger the doorbell to start recording early but I like to be able to interact with the person who then pushes the doorbell. Since the linked event is preventing the doorbell ring alert from going to my phone I am unable to do this.
