Integrate SmartThings with the Ring Video Doorbell or Ring Doorbell Pro to create automation events when Ring’s motion sensor is activated or someone presses Ring’s doorbell button. As an example you can turn on a light or lights automatically when someone approaches your front door. Let’s talk about SmartThings integration with Ring Video Doorbell.
The Ring Doorbell and Ring Pro enhance convenience and security by letting you answer the door from inside the house or across the world using your smart phone or tablet over the Internet. You can also get push notifications automatically when someone approaches. https://www.aartech.ca/ring-wifi-doorbell.html
While it’s a great intercom & security product on its own, until somewhat recently Ring did not offer much in the way of integration. But Ring has been working with other manufacturers to tie their doorbell in to other systems.
Now SmartThings and Ring can be combined! How does it work? The basic steps are as follows:
Set up your Ring account and Ring Doorbell
In the SmartThings app, go to Marketplace and under Things tap Doorbells
Find your Ring device and hit connect now
Enter your Ring details & authorize the connection
Then to add some smarts:
In the SmartThings app, go to Marketplace and find SmartApps
Tape Lights & Switches and install ‘Smart Lights’
Select the new smart app and follow the directions
In following with the keep it simple tradition for both Ring and Smartthings, it’s that easy to set up some integration between devices. Now you can go have some fun!
