The lack of snooze scheduling keeps me up at night.
Reviewed in Canada on June 3, 2020
Suppose you need to disable the Ring Chime every night, but want to continue to receive motion alerts on your phone during that period. You can't do that. Not reliably or easily anyway.
The members of our household do not all share the exact same bedtime. Some go to bed early. Thus, I want to disable the Chime, every day at their bedtime, but still be able to monitor the system on my phone as I am still awake.
It would be an obvious feature to tell the Chime to 'do not disturb' for a set period of time every day!
Ring's (inadequate) solution:
Instead, Ring instructs you to set a motion schedule for your camera or doorbell. The problem with this is that it disables notifications and alerts for ALL devices. That is, both the Chime AND my phone will not receive or announce notifications and alerts.
The only other alternative is to manually snooze the Chime. This means digging through the Ring app to get to the Chime settings, selecting one of the preset amounts of time, and then setting the snooze period. You must ensure you do so at the correct time each day, every day.
Both of these options are, in my opinion, awful.
It is clear that the developers at Ring understand that snooze is a desired option for the Chime. (They did include it after all.) They also seem to understand that scheduling is a desired option. Why not combine these ideas for the Chime?
