Edge Driver needed for the Ring Alarm Contact Sensor Using the 'Z-Wave Plus Door/Window Sensor' DTH

Here is the Z-Wave Ring Alarm Contact Sensor device metrics and the raw description:

Thanks in advance for help.

If some developer doesn’t come out with fully loaded driver I’ll publish my adopted stock driver

Awesome man!! This worked flawlessly!! Appreciate you sharing this

Thank you Milan. I’ll give this a try. :smiley:

@milandjurovic71 did something go wrong with your diver for the ring contact sensor? All my ring sensors stopped working at once

They all work fine at my place.

That’s odd. Can I send you some logs once I get home? For you to check out?

This is just stock SmartThings zwave driver with added fingerprints for contact and motion sensor.

@Drknght4 try to restart the hub

Just got home and it looks like it fixed itself. Not sure what happened but thank you for your prompt response man. Much appreciated

@milandjurovic71 - I’m using your driver for the ring door sensor and it identified the device correctly but in looking at the details via the web, I don’t see any route details like other z-wave devices. Should the Type field be changed from “placeholder” to z-wave plus door/window sensor? I’ve tried both ways and entered a device ID but I still don’t see any route info. Thanks

Don’t change Placeholder to anything else with Edge Drivers, you could mess them up.

Unfortunately you can’t see Z-Wave or ZigBee routes with Edge Drivers. The IDE doesn’t work with Edge Driver and will be phased out by the end of the year.

thanks much @Paul_Oliver - I appreciate the guidance!


Thank you again for providing this edge driver for the Ring Alarm Z-Wave Sensors. I was wondering if it is possible to add in a “Settings” menu item that includes an option to change the “Retrigger Interval” (see screenshot) for the Ring Alarm Motion Sensor. This was a feature that was provide for the Motion Sensor in the Groovy Device Type Handler. This retrigger interval, AKA “Cool Down Period” has a default setting of 180 seconds. Previously, under the Groovy DTH, I changed this setting to 30 seconds which made the sensor much more responsive.

Hello Milan, do you know if this driver will work with a Ring Gen 1 motion sensor? I installed it and it updates the “Tamper” status when I open the cover, but that’s all I’ve got? Is there something I’m missing?

We can try. Can you load Z-wave Device Config driver from Maraino, and provide fingerprints

They should look similar like this

Strange thing, I left for an hour and came back to it and it’s working. When I click on the device, I still receive the message, “This device hasn’t updated all of tits status information yet. Check again later”, but it’s definitely detecting motion now. Other than that, it appears to be working and detecting motion. I’ll give these other drivers a go, but I think we can safely say your driver appears to be working with a Gen 1 motion sensor. Thanks for the reply!

Does anyone else have the problem of all these sensors always reporting 100% battery charge. I installed several of these in a vacation home and all of them show 100 % battery even after several months. One or two of them have gone offline and I suspect it is the batteries. Can the driver be updated to reflect the actual battery percentage ?

This is how device reports battery value. Maybe related to this is that my batteries lasted almost 2 years. Some of sensors reported 80% and 40%.
Maybe there is some other way of getting battery info.
This is stick driver with added fingerprints for R8ng devices.
