Ring Alarm integration

+1 for Ring Alarm integration.

Anyone willing to earn some cash working with this? Or maybe just a challenge?

Websockets is not a challenge for some here....


I will offer up a solid, "Atta Boy" to anyone that creates the integration :laughing:

In my humble opinion, this is something that Hubitat Support should take up due to the overwhelming market presence of Ring equipment. It's just a smart move to have a solid integration with one of the "leading" players in the Home Automation field.

You can ask and dream. Nothing more.

Makes sense to me for Hubitat to wait, as there are a lot of changes going on with those integrations as they merge three companies into the fold at once (Ring, Mr. Beams and Blink)

Not sure if anyone's interested but I use the Ring contact door/window sensors with Hubitat (without the Ring system) as they were cheap. I had to take the Z-wave contact sensor code and customise it slightly though, otherwise the contact sensors would stick (e.g. they'd just go on), though the changes I made didn't seem unreasonable I also know the unmodified code works with other sensors, so I'm not sure what the whole deal is.

@electric_monk I am interested in this... how did you go about getting this to work ? I have the device attached to my hub. I am seeing the open condition ,but does not reset back to the closed once the door is closed. Any help is appreciated!

@Rylannic That's exactly the behaviour I also saw/fixed.

I've posted my little driver to hubitat/RingContact.groovy at master · electric-monk/hubitat · GitHub

It seemed like the "built in" driver just wasn't handling the "turn off" case, which works slightly differently to the "turn on" case, so I just implemented it myself.


I've been sitting on this a really long time. I'm just finally getting around to a formalized testing period and release. Here is a native integration that uses the websocket client (and doesn't require an AWS instance because that is lame) and private API calls.

Where is my "Atta Boy"?

@Rylannic, @electric_monk Have either of you been able to get the keypad to pair? I was dorking around with an extra one a couple of days ago. I can get it to pair to SmartThings without any problems. It does not want to pair to Hubitat though.

That's what I'm talking about. THANK YOU. I'd like to take a moment and thank all of the little people who helped me get.............. [trailing off]


Ring alarm ordered. Hope I don't have to issue an "awshit" :wink:

LOL! Can I turn this into a Canada thing?

'You frickin' Canadians.'

You’ll need a Canadian. I live here, but I’m American :wink:


An AmeriCanadian. The worst kind. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
