Ring Alarm Gen 2.0 – Even more enhanced security for your home!

April 19, 2022

When it was launched in 2018, the Ring Alarm proved a very interesting product. It was a really great entry point into DIY home security, thanks to a near fool-safe and simple set-up process [and a great app]

Now Ring has introduced the Ring Alarm (2nd Generation), in the UAE. A sleek, customisable and easy to install home security system, Ring Alarm offers commitment-free home security where its needed most, keeping you connected to your property when you are both home and away.

Ring Alarm works as a stand-alone product for anyone looking to add an easy-to-install Alarm system to their home. For that extra layer of security, integrate Ring Alarm with Ring Video Doorbells and Security Cameras in the Ring app, so that when the Alarm sounds, it will automatically trigger all Ring cameras to begin recording (when subscribed to a Ring Protect plan), even if they do not detect motion. Ring Alarm also works with select Alexa-enabled devices, so users can arm, disarm and check the status of their Alarm with simple voice commands.

The primary major difference between the first and second generation Ring Alarm Home Security System is the redesigned key pad. The 2nd Gen adds three emergency buttons (ambulance service, fire department and police).

As in the first version, the really accessible Ring app is the starting point. Simply use the Ring app to connect the Base Station via Wi-Fi or Ethernet, install the Contact Sensor(s) on the doors and/or windows of choice, and place the Motion Detector(s) to monitor for movement. Customers can utilise one-touch buttons on the Ring Alarm Keypad to sound the Alarm or to activate Assisted Monitoring (with Ring Protect Plus) and notify three preset contacts that there is a medical emergency or fire.

Plus, the Keypad’s Modes buttons make it easy for customers to set their Alarm to one of three modes–Disarmed, Home, or Away Mode, as needed. Ring Alarm has compact easy-to-mount sensors to fit into smaller spaces, for added convenience and flexibility where it’s needed most.
