I am looking to add an alarm system to our home but it would be a benefit if we could use the alarm door / windows sensor and motion sensor in Hubitat for other automation uses.
At first, I looked at Konnected but it seem that it for older "wired" sensors homes then I saw Ring Alarm system.
I wanted to make sure I understood this correctly that the Ring Alarm sensors can be used for Hubitat automation correct?
Does it get pair to the Ring hub and Hubitat access those sensors via Ring Hub?
What about Co2/Smoke sensor?
Can Ring arm/disarm be trigger using Hubitat dashboard or Homekit app? If someone used a keypad to arm/disarm Ring system, does it update the status on Hubitat or Homekit?
I use @codahq AMAZING integration called out by @JNS.
Having said that, you should be aware that Ring can change things whenever they want, and it's unclear if any of our community apps will be able to navigate around those. Just for a fair warning.
I'm optimistic as I don't see Ring breaking experiences like this intentionally, and with Alexa routines there might always been some work-around as well.
Agreed. I should have mentioned it is not a built-in or HE supported app.
However, this is made very clear. The first two paragraphs of the very first post for the Unofficial Ring Integration app reads as follows:
Unofficial Ring Integration Disclaimer
"First and foremost I need to warn any who venture to use this integration. This integration is provided for fun without hope of warranty or safety or stable or permanent use. Ring are not official partners with Hubitat or myself and all of the interactions between the Hubitat hub and Ring's cloud servers in this integration are via the private API calls that Ring does not publish or give permission to use for this purpose. I wrote this integration for fun and I do not trust it with my safety. It's a hobby project. (That said, it is well built and mostly stable. On the hubitat side the hub slows down sometimes and drops the websocket connection but there is a watchdog that starts it back up.)
If some part of this integration does not work now or stops working in the future I make no gaurantees and this is provided "AS IS" without hope of service or warranty. If you use this integration you agree to hold me unresponsible for what may happen to your Ring account in the event that Ring deems this type of usage of the API unreasonable. You agree to hold me unresponsible for what may happen to your home, personal property, self, family, etc. You agree to hold me unresponsible. End of story."
You are so correct about any of those mentioned and more. There are so many integrations that can be broken. Fortunately we have very talented developers here, so there's hopefully an opportunity to overcome changes as well.
One thing in favor of integrations like Homebridge, Unofficial Ring Integration, Lutron, etc. is that they require and promote the purchase of their devices. So the licensing fees are paid in a sense
