Ring Binding port from 2.5 to 3.x version

Hello OH 3 Team,

I’m in the process of migrating to OH 3.x and have NOT found the Ring binding migrated yet.

The Ring binding integrates into the Ring doorbell platform seamlessly. I tried to drop it in and it doesn’t activate, it just says installed.

org.openhab.binding.ring-2.5.2-SNAPSHOT.jar

Is there plans to do this? How can I request this formerly?

Best, Jay

Seems this has never been an official openHAB 2.5 binding, therefore you should ask the contributor/author.
If I remember correct, there is an open Pull Request for this binding.

Hi @zolakk,

Would you please consider compiling your Ring binding against the OH 3.x branch so a bunch of us can migrate our Ring doorbell integration from OH 2.5 to OH 3.x?

Best, Jay

This is an un-official Ring 3.x release and there is NO maintainer for this version, Siriram did me a BIG favor doing this for me.

I’m still testing it but it does come up for account and doorbell THING.

Best, Jay

@jwiseman just purchased a ring doorbell at prime day. any news in regards to your tests?

The version link posted above I’m still running. I have 2 ring doorbells in two physical different locations and it’s working for both of them fine. LMK if I an help in anyway?

Best, Jay

Jay, thanks for offering help! Well, I’m a nerd but I’m completely unexperienced with Ring devices.
I managed to

  • install the binding
  • added a Ring account thing
  • added a Ring Video Doorbell thing

Latter provides just two channels, see screenshot.
What am I missing? Ideally I would see a trigger channel if something moves in front of the doorbell, another channel if someone rings the bell and maybe a picture/video stream URL?

PS: I noticed an error message in the log complaining about the path /etc/openhab2/html/ring/video
Once created with correct permissions, I could see a few video files

best regards, Stefan

The stuff your looking for is in the account area, not in the doorbell area.

Here’s my rule for the ring doorbell, there is a 2 minute delay for OH to see the changes from the RING API. My rule integrates the IP Camera binding also to capture a image. This rule is actually tied to 2 different doorbells in two different locations.

rule "RingEventKind received update"

Hey Jay!
Can you share how you got the image from the device?
Do you need the subscription to capture it as well?
Regards

The image capture is from another camera system (HIK Vision), not from the Ring device.

Best, Jay

Good morning everyone,

I got the binding running yesterday but have one issue:

The timestamp of the last event doesn’t get updated.

The Account thing has an polling update of 5 seconds and is shown as “online”.

I created a normal time point item over the openhab UI.

When relinking the item, it gets the latest timestamp, so that information seems to be in place…

Any idea what might cause that issue?

Thanks a lot,
Christian

I have confirmed mine is working.

Ring Event Created 10.22.2022 16:05

Here’s my item definition of it.

DateTime   RingEventCreated               "Ring Event Created [%1$tm.%1$td.%1$tY %1$tH:%1$tM]"              										{ channel="ring:account:7494353203:event#createdAt" } 

Best, Jay

Thanks Jay,

Unfortunately I don’t get it working.

I even tried rebooting openhab as well as reinstalling the binding completely.

Linking the channel always updates the item only once or if I change some item settings. Means, the channel successfully transfers the date point, but isn’t synchronized to the item.

Not sure whether this can be caused by the necessary json mini or some related settings? It’s my only binding with that behaviour.

So if anyone has an approach to try that works be much appreciated.

Thanks guys,
Best,

Christian

Are you running OH 3.3 or 3.4? If so, maybe that is the issue?

Im running OH 3.2.

Best, Jay

It’s also version 3.2 I am running. May be I’ll digg more into upcoming weekend. Alsoy Alexa routine triggered my ring movement detection isn’t working properly so I’m curious whether the issue might also come from ring’s side?!

If I find a solution I’ll let you know!
