Ring keypad and other Ring Security System devices

Im also interested!

Looking good!

Im also interested!

Is it already possible to add the ring keypad?

For me it is, but I’m still working on the app and it’s not ready for a release so you can’t. Also, I’ve run into a problem I can’t fix with the Contact Sensor and the Motion Detector. These devices require Z-Wave S2 security which Homey doesn’t support yet. S2 support is on the roadmap but no ETA.

S2 issues are only 3 years old since first reported. Athom isn’t going to support it any time soon :upside_down_face: . That’s already fact after 3 years of devices not working correct . They said it many times it would be fixed soon .
Their solution was/is add the devices unsecure . But some devices don’t work then like danalocks , heat valves etc

But are you also trying to add the ring door sensors and pirs ? The project got bigger then just the keypad :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Yeah, it got a bit bigger indeed, crashed and burned for now though :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
The only device I can get working is the V1 keypad, all other V1 products require S2. Most likely the same will go for the V2 products, from what I’ve seen the V2 keypad uses FLiRS, so… You’re well aware of how good that functions :wink:

So I’m all good with the 3 v1 keypads that arrived last week :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

So u bought them all! Seems like they are no longer sold according the site.

Hmmm, you should convince @MarcoRuiter to give one to you cause Yes! the keypad (V1) is fully supported.
Entering a pincode and pressing any of the (dis)arm keys works and when arming Heimdall via the Surveillance Mode switch or a flow or presence or whatever that info will be send back to the keypad so it also acts as an indicator for the Surveillance Mode.
The spoken text messages, faulty/open sensor indicator and sirene are also controllable from Homey, just have to attach them to functions in Heimdall. :sunglasses:

How is it going with the app? If you need somebody to test the app, let me know.

It’s going great, a little less time spend on this app as I first had to create User Management in Heimdall. That’s 99% done so I hope to publish that in the next few days.
Core functionality of this app is mostly done, just in a messy way (missing translations, images etc) after I’ve cleaned that up it will be ready for testing. No ETA on that though :wink:

I’ve ordered the keypad also so if there needs testing to be done… I’m ready!
One question, you think the app will support multiple keypads in one household?
Would love one at the front door and one at the backdoor if possible.

Yes, that’s the idea.
The users are stored and maintained in Heimdall, the keypad will just send the entered PIN and desired mode to Heimdall and Heimdall will do the rest.

@DaneedeKruyff Got the keypad v1 today.

  1. When will we be able to use it? :slight_smile:
  2. Will it support 2 keypads? For example one at front door and one backdoor?
  3. happy birthday :stuck_out_tongue:

Hi Joeri,

  1. Just a little longer
  2. Yes, it should. I haven’t been able to test it though but it’s the idea it supports multiple, also see the post above yours.
  3. :smiley: Thanks!

I have been able to test the (private for now) beta. And the keypad integration works very well. Nice work @DaneedeKruyff

But just a heads up to everyone who wants to use this ring keypad. It will usually come with older firmware and according to multiple online forums it is known to brick itself when you leave it plugged in permanently. A supposed firmware update fixes it, but without the ring base station you will not be able to update it. The battery will last a couple months though.
