Create an alert for if Ring Doorbell disconnected


(Richard Gregory) #1

Hi All,

I am trying to find a way of sending a notification to my phone if my Ring Doorbell Pro disconnects from its network. I thought the Ring app would do it, but my doorbell was offline for 3 days before I realised, and I had not received any notification from Ring!

I have CoRE installed for some other things and was looking for a way with that, but can’t see how to do it. Is there any other way to do it?

Any suggestions appreciated.

TIA

I use a program that’s runs on a little Pi3 called Host Pinger. It’s purpose is to ping your LAN for active/inactive ip addresses. A virtual switch is created and it is either on/off depending on if it can be pinged or not.

From there, you can use webCoRE to send/do whatever if the LAN connected device goes offline.

I use it for all kinds of cool stuff!

Interesting solution. I run a Synology server 24/7, so could do something similar with that.

Thanks!
