I recently purchased new Ring Stick Up cams (for exterior) from Amazon. Once connected, realized were not compatible with ST. So back in the box they went and I received Ring Wired Spotlight Cams. Got them running in Ring app and tried to connect to ST. Electrician was getting antsy so I told him to go ahead and install them after hours on phone with Ring and low-level ST techs. The day after installation and cutting the cord off both cameras, a high-level ST tech called and said my Ring Wired Spotlight Cams were not ST supported because they were v2. Interesting because website doesn’t say anything about v2.
Come to find out from Ring, the v2 has been out for 2 years. Needless to say not happy with ST and the online misrepresentation. I also have doubts they will ever be supported now since it has been 2 years and Samsung is coming out with their new cameras. Buyer beware!
Now for a solution…I have about 50+ zwave devices, whole house ST and Alexa/echo in every room. I mostly use Classic app but have done some custom smartapps. What I want is to get motion alerts from outdoor cameras in Away mode (do not want them while home) Ring does not have geofencing which is why I wanted ST compatibility. How can I achieve this? I do not use stringify or IFTTT but I can learn it. I am super frustrated and wish I was not talking to the tech that knew nothing when they suggested I buy this model. Thx much
