I agree with the smoke detectors, I feel the listeners are just a way to fill a known gap. The First Alert z-wave would be perfect if they could be hardwired. I'm due to replace my current hardwired smoke detectors (7) and want them to integrate with my Ring alarm. This should be an easy fix since First Alarm already makes a battery powered one that works. Garage Door senors and ability to operate the door through app would be a great addition. I currently use the door sensors on my garage doors to monitor open and close, they are also then monitored when the alarm is armed. The door sensors are not currently designed for this application, but with a small door hinge and some inginuity you can make it work. It would be nice to have a sensor designed for the garage rather than having to make "somethign work" as I did.

I would love to have the ability to have an interactive screen that I can monitor just my cameras. I've been wanting to place a touch screen monitor (using raspberry pi) or even an iPad or other tablet on a wall in my kitchen to display my cameras. I know I could just use the app on an iPad but then my alarm is available for anyone to disarm or arm. I would like to just have a touchscreen that displays my cameras, that allows me to select any camera and zoom in on activity. If someone is pulling into my driveway, I can select that camera and see who it is. If they approach my door and ring my doorbell, I can select that camera.... and so on. I replaced all of my flood lights with the Ring floodlights (without the camera) and now would like to add a camera to those areas. I would like a mod kit to allow me to add a camera above (or below) the existing floodlight. Ideally, a hardwired camera that would wire into the same junction box and mount as the existing flood lights. Which brings me to my next feature request; I love the Stick-up cam design and I appreciate the various options for power (PoE, USB, plug-in) but I would love the option to hardwire them. This could be as simple as a mini USB converter with wires that connect to your existing junction box wires. Ideally, nothing would need to be modified on the camera itself. I understand that the spotlight camera was just released with this feature, but I dont need the spotlight siince I have the flood lights. At this point my options are: Throw away the floodlights and replace them all with $250 Flood light Cameras (unlikely). Spend $200 on Spotlight Cameras and find a way to modify the exisiting flood lights on my own to allow me to hardwire them. (Less Unlikely) Buy $99 Stick-up Cameras and use PoE (more likely). However, if hardwired was an option with this camera, I would definitely go that route.
