I agree and the reason I came to the forums. Here is my thoughts and what you can do in Ring or other apps.
It would be a useful enhancement if you could disable/disarm alerts in the app for a time period such as 5 mins, 15 mins, 30 mins, 60 mins, etc. Right now it appears we can only disarm/enable permanently though we can trigger a timed adjustment in a schedule.
Here’s an example - landscapers show up and I’d like to disable alerts for 30 mins. Or my daughter comes over and brings her dog and I’d like to disable the alerts for 60 mins while the dog runs around the back yard. A good user experience is the Disarm button/toggle in the app surface a time period or “permanent” no time period option.
