    Ring plugin now support Ring smart lights and beam controllers

    As of version 1.0.0.9, the plugin now detects beam controllers (adapnet) and remote lights.

    Not to be slow but what are beam controllers (adapnet) and remote lights and how are they utilized?

      If you type in "Ring smart lighting" in Amazon, you see all the Ring supported smart lights. In order to control those you need an Alarm Hub PRO (or so I think) or one of these https://www.amazon.com/Introducing-R...ef_=ast_sto_dp , which is called a "beam" in the Ring API parlance

        Thanxs for the comeback, will have to do some light reading... so this " Ring Smart Lighting – Bridge" looks like another hub but is Wi-Fi and only works for 5 Ring lights, so now I will have potentially 3 hubs: 1) HS4 (z-wave), 2) Hue (Zigbee) and 3) Ring (Wi-Fi)? I'm starting to feel overwhelmed keeping track of devices > Plugins > Events just saying...

        I didn't even consider Ring Alarm Hub so that makes 4 hubs (2 didicated to Ring)

          Not 100% sure if it is zwave or zigbee, but a lightbulb that is remote controllable (wonder if this Philips Hue rebranded as ring) is cool and at <$20 wasn't that bad a deal.
          Don't think I'm going to go that route either, but wasn't too expensive to buy and add support.
          Hey you can always buy the Ring Drone , I know someone on this forum who can't wait to buy one (at that wouldn't be me)

            Understand the cost thing as a consideration, it just adds levels in to an already complex Home Controller. I don't think its a Phillip Hue rebranded as the Ring hub seems to be Wi-Fi based.

            Count me in for Ring Drone!! would be a neat toy err.. security addition (ya that ticket!)

                Based on your previous posting, I'd applied for the Drone invitation (now waiting) and yes I have 4 cats that might team up to bring it down...

                    I have been following your posts and the release of the plug in. I decided to make the switch from some older Arlo cameras to Ring. I purchased the Ring Doorbell Pro 2, (2) Stick Up cameras and the Ring Bridge. I installed the Ring PI tonight and everything seems to have loaded correctly.

                    One feature that Ring does not appear to have that Arlo did have is the ability to arm the cameras in 'Away' mode when I leave the house via geo-fencing and Arlo also had the ability to have a schedule over-ride the geo-fencing rules during sleeping hours and arm the cameras. Arming the Stick Up cameras (Home, Away, Disarmed) appears to be a manual step in Ring. After reviewing the Ring app, I was hoping to accomplish the arming (mode change) through the plug in and use of my HS4 ability to detect whether I am home or if it's sleeping hours. But, I don't see a setting on the Stick Up Camera device settings to change the mode (Home, Away, Disarmed). Is adding the mode for each device a feature that is planned for the plug in, or is it even possible?

                      not sure on either of your questions. If the latter is going to be true, most likely the former will be true as well
                      Stay tuned as I've been focusing more on alarm functions lately but as of today, I reengaged on the camera part.
                      Top of my list:
                      1. figure out how to properly initiate snapshot, starting to think this is simply not possible unless there was motion in which case the camera automatically takes a snapshot.
                      2. rewrote the history processing (retrieving of videos) a bit, including timestamps and device ids and motionkind to the file names so it can be "managed" easier.
                      3. added ability to define a user configurable path to put videos and snapshots but that has the side effect you cannot retrieve them with HS4's embedded http server unless they are somewhere in a <hs root>/html subdirectory ... pain in the @@s
                      4. Need to complete the "history" page
                      5. Need to figure out how to enable/disable motion detections per camera, keep on getting "unauthorized"

                        These Stick Up cameras I bought are inside the house. That's why I want to use the mode (Home/Away). I'll never remember to set the mode to 'Away' when my wife and I leave and definitely want the cameras off when I'm at home and stirring around the house.

                        I thought about buying the Ring Alarm Pro, but wasn't sure it was worth spending $250 for it. Maybe the Ring Alarm Pro allows the modes to be set via geo-fencing. Thanks for considering. Otherwise, everything on the plug in loaded smoothly.

                          jrhocker maybe we're talking about different things, but noticed today , through the app, you can set what the cameras do in each mode (disarmed, armed home, armed away). If I go to device->(select your camera)->mode settings->disarmed->cameras->(select your camera) you can enable/disable motion detection and live views. Was it this you were looking for, or do you expect the PI can change these settings? Wouldn't setting motion disabled for all indoor cameras when the alarm is disarmed be all you need?

                            Yes, I was hoping the PI could change the mode settings (Home, Away, Disarmed). I would use the HS4 event creation to detect if I leave/arrive home and then change the mode of the Ring inside Stick Up cameras. Or, if it's late at night and I am at home, I would use an HS4 event to change the mode via the Ring PI to set the cameras to 'Away' based on my sleep schedule and then, change the mode in the morning to 'Home' using the Ring PI.

                            The bottom line, I would like for the PI to be able to be able to toggle the mode if needed. At least, that's my wishes. Thanks for considering.

                            Attached are screenshots of how the Arlo app is able to do the same thing. I'm looking at HS4 to do the geofencing and scheduling rather that the way Arlo does it.

                            See below...this is an example of an Arlo camera I have that is named 'Living Room':

                              Follow up question, why would you not use the "arm" status of the alarm, or perhaps you don't have an alarm system? If not armed or armed home, you would set the cameras not to record, not good? You would arm the alarm based on geofencing info, or time of day .....

                              Alternatively, there is (or will be in next drop) a disable/enable motion detection options for each camera, I would think that would do the trick, no?
                              I'm a bit reluctant to pursue what you are asking as it will explode quite a bit the amount of features per device not to mention a user may get lost in its own settings as you wouldn't easily see from your app that the mode settings have been changed (or are wrong).

                              Thoughts?
