I've thought of something like this, but haven't tried it.

The August has another product that includes lock control but I'm not quite so progressive that I would let my locks be controlled

The other thing is that door bell has a very large form factor so mounting options might be limited.

Ah, so after a month or so of use the Ring Pro cam stopped transmitting video. Pings to the phone for motion and chimes still work, but cloud or phone won't see any video (a frame or two at best). Ring tried to troubleshoot for a few weeks ultimately sent me a new one.. which promptly started to exhibit same symptoms after a day.

wonder if I have something on my router that is causing an issue... though doesn't make sense that it was perfect for a month before it started happening.

Update: black video screens resolved after I upgraded my Bell Fibe service and new modem/router. Not sure if it was a bandwidth problem or a modem problem
