The Ring Chime and Chime Pro (1st and 2nd generations) products will soon be dedicated to their home Locations. Locations (identified by different addresses) allow you to group your Ring devices by their physical location in the Ring app. This means that, later in 2021, a Ring camera at Ring Location A will only be able to activate a Ring Chime at Location A, and will no longer be able to activate a Ring Chime at Ring Location B.
Note: If all of your Ring devices and Chimes are registered at only one Ring Locations, or if you have not linked Ring Chime devices across different Locations, this change does not affect you.
Ring Chime devices can be easily moved between Locations assignments.
Here are some more ways you can get an audible alert for activity detected by doorbells and cameras in multiple Locations:
- Customize your Alert Tones per camera : The Ring app on iOS and Android can play a unique notification tone for each of your doorbells and cameras. This can help you hear different audible tones for motion and doorbell alerts at your different Ring Locations.
- Play Announcements through Alexa: If you own an Amazon Echo Show or Echo speaker, you can have Alexa announce motion and doorbell alerts from any device.
