October is here and all things Halloween are on shelves and in apps. Ring is joining the fun with new Halloween-themed Quick Replies, decorative faceplates and chimes. Here’s what you can do and how to set it up. 

Quick Replies

With Ring’s Quick Reply feature, you can select an automated response to greet your guest if you can’t get to the door. Standard options include lines like, “We can’t answer the door right now, but if you’d like to leave a message, you can do it now,” and “Please leave the package outside. If you’d like to leave a message, you can do it now.” There are four other regular replies to choose from. 

For Halloween, Ring is adding:

  • “Tell us what brings you here… or we’ll put a spell on you!”
  • “Boo! Leave us a message if you dare [evil laugh].”
  • “Just a minute! Feel free to park your broom.”
  • “Please leave the package (and any hocus pocus) outside.”

With all Quick Replies, you can watch your visitor leave a message in Live View or in your event history if you’re a Ring Protect subscriber.
