Most of the time I have the notifications on my iPhone on silent, so I can stay focused when I'm at work. However, when someone rings my doorbell, I do want to be notified. I think it would be great if the Ring app would integrate with CallKit on iOS. That way, I can also answer the doorbell using the buttons on my bluetooth headset or even carkit. And that way I get a constant "notification" like a phone call. I'm pretty sure similar APIs exists for Android.

I'd like the option to prerecord responses/replies/messages in the app that I can playback when someone is at my door. Sometimes when I'm in the car or in a remote area, my mobile internet connection isn't very great, making it hard to have a decent conversation. It also happens sometimes that I'm in a meeting or in a noisy environment and it's just not possible for me to talk with whomever rang my doorbell. For these situations, prerecorded replies/messages that I can quickly send from the app, by the press of a button, would be ideal. For instance, if it's a package delivery, I can ask the person to leave the package at my backdoor. If we're in the garden, I can tell the person to just come around the back. At least one competitor already has this (Quick Responses in the Nest video doorbell) and I think it's a very good feature.
