I'm being told that you can easily schedule your router to turn off wifi for a specific device for a set period of time (such as Shabbos), and then when a doorbell isn't connected to wifi, it totally turns off - no sensors go off, etc.

Retaining video is very, very nice. Use it much more often that I thought we would.
Thanks, I'll keep that in mind for Ring vs. Nest.

Not true for my Ring 2. Red lights on the doorbell are still triggered with motion.
PUTPAC = PITA

The former - turning off wi-fi for your camera - I can vouch for entirely. For google wi-fi for example, you can do this the same way you do Family Wi-Fi - make a new kid - call it 'Shabbos Yid' - and associate all of your ring devices with it. Schedule it to disable wi-fi from Friday night to Motzash.

As for the latter - i.e. what happens to the doorbell when the wifi connection is lost - I don't believe they have local storage and can hold the videos offline until the wi-fi comes back, but I can't guarantee that you aren't setting off the motion sensor or camera. I would suggest you AYLOR to see if that even makes a difference.
