I know it's been requested several times but how about some integration for when the alarm is set off. When the alarm goes off if we had a routine, we could use the Alexa app or use the Ring app to turn on a plug/light etc. I have purchased the ring lighting bridge becaus eI thought it would turn on lights on alarm trigger, which it does not. Also wanted to hook up an external siren to the low voltage transformer. The transformer runs the siren fine, but without the app signalling the plug or transformer to turn on, it won't activate the siren or turn on the alarm lights. Seems should be a simple issue, but just doesn't function. Either add to the lighting transformer only for external use or a plug and I can get a smaller transformer. Doesn't matter which to me, but I do need a usable siren. You already have integration with the dome siren which is supposed to be 120db but it is 120db at 1" Since it has to be installed inside, not really a usable siren. I like the ring alarm system and have since purchased 3 full alarm units, 4 cameras, fire alarm sensors, lots of motion sensors, wireless bridges, smoke alarms, etc. Can't even tell you how many ring devices I actually have on a couple of different properties, but it's a lot. This is coming from someone who uses redundant dvrs and has more security camera coverage in their business than a major chain store. The ring cameras are a secondary backup device. also use them at a different location to check on aging adult. Integration with the camera sirens would be good as well.

A couple ideas for the App: 1: Smart TV intergration. Be nice if I could use my smart tv to view my cameras. Especially the doorbell when it rings. Or when the little ones are outside, Lots of peeps watch tv, so this could be benificial. Plus the larger screen all the better to see you with. Could be a lite version. that would only trigger on the doorbell push button or by demand, so when watching the latest movie you wouldn't be interupted by a popup. 2. The panic button in the phone app. Would be nice to have a way to add it to you home screen on your phone for quicker access. Off course you would have to verify you want to send the alert like in the normal app and use the slider, but when time is of an essence and every second counts, a faster way to send the alert. 3: Silent alarm mode from the app. Just like the durres code on the keypad, a way to trigger an alert, but silent. 4: A personal alarm feature on your phone. A button you could push to sound off a siren, and even alert monitoring that you need help. Would work off the phones gps. Could also add a silent mode. Could be an add on to your current subscription. And even add a keyfob button to press tat would activate it.
