Topic Wiki

Before you post, here are some quick notes about the ring (Updated August 2019), that have been discussed in this forum:

- More important that anything else - AYLOR before you buy as YMMV
- There are two types of Ring Doorbells - those that are battery powered (Doorbell/Doorbell 2/View Cam), and those that are hardwired (Pro/Pro Elite)
- Disabling the Wifi works to prevent recordings, and disabling motion zones won't alert you, but most people still think that ring will still be triggered on by motion
- There are many tools with modern Wi-fi routers - Circle, Google Wi-fi, etc that enable you to cut off your rings Wi-Fi on a schedule or manually
- If you have a hard-wired Ring, you can add a switch to the circuit to completely turn it off before Shabbos
- Some people have a manual switch, others have added a programmable relay.
- Other people cover the doorbell

I see that ring 2 is on sale this month at Costco.  Is there any updated information on how to avoid Shabbos  issues.  I will be happy to hire someone that knows how to set this up properly for Shabbos

it does not. it's same as turning zones off

Are you sure of this? (and its not just a notification setting) So if this is the case, we have a good shabbos solution with the schedule on the ring app nowadays?? Can anyone else comment on this? If this doesnt work, and im too lazy to do any manual weekly work, I see two possible options. 1) keep the motion sensors always off 2) keep them on but remove the subscription for recordings staying in the cloud (questionable if halachically ok due to actual sensors activated)...
