We all want our smart home devices to work seamlessly with one another. Having Ring connect to your thermostat would bring in the final piece of the puzzle to make it become complete.
Does Ring work with any thermostats? You can control a Nest thermostat through Ring by using the IFTTT app. The Ring Doorbell 2 also works with the following:
Now, Ring does not have any official third-party thermostat partnerships or a thermostat of their own at the moment. However, there are ways to make some thermostats work through other means.
The Nest Thermostat has the capacity to work with the Ring app with the aid of the IFTTT app. With the IFTTT app, it connects all of your apps and devices together so that there is a seamless connection between them all.
With the Ring Doorbell 2, there are a few thermostats that will work with it. Those thermostats are the following:
Most of these thermostats work by way of Alexa. They can be controlled by Alexa-enabled devices. How they are able to work with the Ring Doorbell 2, is because Amazon acquired Ring in February of 2018.
With the ability to use Alexa, you can control your thermostat by voice commands and with the Alexa app. Make sure that all of your devices are on the same wi-fi so that they can connect and identify each other.
So far Ring has not stated if they will be integrating the feature to work with smart thermostats into their system. Google’s Nest system is currently the smart home system that offers integration with its video doorbell and thermostat.
There could be more useful for apps like IFTTT that will allow you to connect your devices together on one app. The other possibility is that there could be an uprise in devices that use Z-Wave.
Z-Wave is a wireless software that is already embedded into a device, that allows another device with Z-Wave to communicate with it. Z-Wave uses low-energy radio waves to help push the connection between two devices.
