Ring doorbell 2nd Gen

Is there any Device Handler to connect the Ring doorbell 2nd Gen. with Smartthings?


There isn’t one. Ring gets installed as a cloud service. Go to add device > By Brand > Ring > Doorbell

Yes but Doorbell 2nd Gen. isn’t supported…

Then that’s a call to Ring to bug them until they do. In the new world order, these cloud integrations are provided by the vendor. It’s up to them to support it or not.

and they are not. Ring sees themselves as a competitor to Smartthings now, rolling out their own ability to pair smart lighting and switches to Ring doorbells directly now.

Since they have stopped playing ball the only way to do this is make a routine with Alexa that will do what you want between the doorbell and ST devices.

Yes I Hope the Ring developer code something for the Integration…

ring also now has a outside dual outlet plug they control thru the lighting module. so, they are becoming more and more a competitor to st.

Try setting it up as if you’re adding a Gen 1 or Pro. I no longer use Ring, but I did have a Gen 2 working in SmartThings. There was a required workaround.

You only can add an Ring Doorbell and not an specific Manufacturer…

You are better off returning it & buying arlo. They have been actively working with smartthings to get their devices working. Can not say the same about ring & dont even bother calling them or posting in thier community forum many people have & ring either says they look at all request & will pass it on or they ignore the post.

The process/ integration may have changed a bit. I went through the app and acted like I was adding 1 now and there are no longer any options to choose. That’s unfortunate.

I would also recommend another brand in this case or a certified to work Ring model…if that’s even available anymore.
