How to Add Z-Wave Sensors to the Ring Alert



Ring Alarm has quickly become one of TechHive's most popular home security systems with its solid hardware, low monthly operating costs, and huge expansion potential.

The secret of the latter is Z-Wave, a low-power wireless network technology solution used by thousands of smart home devices, gadgets and sensors.

Adding a Z-Wave sensor to a ring alarm system is easy, but before you spend money on sourcing the components, you need to understand what is possible and not possible with third-party sensors.

Adding a Sensor

Attaching a Z-Wave sensor to your ring alarm is similar to adding ring-own sensors. Click the large "+" icon on "Setting Up a Device" on the Ring App home screen and select "Security Devices." Select the device type there. In this example I add a GE door hinge sensor, so I click on "Sensors".

To add a third-party device, select "Add manually" at the bottom of the page. You will see that Z-Wave is the only option on the next page. From there, you are in the Z-Wave docking menu and should follow the instructions for the Z-Wave device to be added.

Add Z-Wave sensors in ring alarm.

In my case, it was a GE door hinge sensor that had to initiate pairing at the push of a button on the device.

After you're done, you can check your success by going to the Devices menu, see the "Hamburger" menu (the three horizontal lines in the top left corner), and make sure your newly paired device is listed , It looks like this:

A Z-Wave sensor is listed in the Ring Alert App

From then on, you should notice that the sensor status is opening and closing changes it. And that's it. Your Z-Wave sensor should be connected to your ring alert.
