Things You Never Knew Your Ring Doorbell Could Do – SlashGear

While Alexa integration is only available to subscribers of Ring’s Protect Plan, a more basic version called Quick Replies is available to virtually every user, regardless of their subscription status. With Quick Replies, the doorbell can reply to visitors with a generic, “Sorry, we can’t answer the door right now” message, but it’s also able to reply with an appropriately festive response during the holiday season. According to┬áThe Verge, during the holidays every Ring can reply with, “We’re busy wrapping presents right now,” and it can also automatically thank delivery workers for bringing presents to the door. Ring’s chime can also be set to a number of carols, including “Deck the Halls,” “Jingle Bells,” and “Oh Hanukkah.”

It’s not just Christmas that has Ring feeling festive, either. During Halloween, a number of humorous spooky replies are available for when owners are away from home. Visitors who need to declare a reason for their visit will be asked, “Tell us what brings you here…or we’ll put a spell on you,” while delivery drivers will be greeted with “Please leave the package (and any hocus pocus) outside.”
