You actually got the AUGUST CONNECT to work with the Ring base station? i.e., the open door/confirmation magnet module functions correctly? The best I have gotten is to add the locks via Zwave+ directly as clients to the base station, but you lose all secondary app (August/Yale Connect) support completely. I even tried back door, using SmartThings Hub as the ZW+ Host and connecting it as a client to Ring Base Station and linking via Alexa to my devices there. Tried similar with Zigbee and another $50 per module, hosting by Echo Plus, connecting to Ring as a client and through skills. Tried IFTT & SumpleCommands, aka Kloee, as well, still no dice. The "support" for August Connect is an outright lie, or poor proofing, because it DOES NOT WORK, not even with Yale's latest, top dollar model AFAIK. Best I have seen is 100% control via Ring, with loss of useful features, including being able to make any changes on the locks settings via app. Everything has to be done via master code at the lock itself, navigating and confirming manually thru the 1-9; *✓ keypad, even with the newest touchscreen model that Google uses rebranded for Nest Protect, except it ACTUALLY seems to work correctly on Google's platform. Sad really, when companies announce support for something and then silently downgrade their specs or just never get to really integrating the features they promise. As you can tell, I am a little extra upset today... Just discovered the Intel NUC on my new $2500+top of the line 16Gb ram Surface device, which states support (as does Intel specs) will not stream PCM above 16 Bit, even though it claims 16 channels available and shows support for 24 Bit audio at 192khz. In fact, it won't even put out 3.1 channel, either severely crippled 5.1, crippled 7.1 or stereo. Even my $180 Echo Studio can handle 24 bit multi-channel audio. So sick of these companies throwing up BS specs & silently downgrading them a year+ later. This should be illegal, these corporations at best have garbage QC, at worst straight lie to fatten shareholder pockets, knowing most consumers have no protections and zero recourse.
