Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

I've just sent an email to the developer asking about his status WRT the plugin.

Looks like it has been fixed in the last 24 hours in this github python project - davglass/doorbot - so I guess the good news is that it can be made to work. :)


That's actually a JavaScript project. Taking a quick look at it seems to validate that Ring has changed their authentication to OAuth. The Python project you linked to further up this thread has a bug filed so perhaps they'll get their project updated. That might help get this plugin working again, depending on the developer's status.

BTW and FYI, we started including the oauthlib 2.0.2 and requests_oauthlib 0.8.0 Python modules with Indigo 7.1, which may be useful to plugin developers who have to authenticate with OAuth. IMO, OAuth sucks (talk about design by committee) and is moderately complex to implement, but it is what everyone is moving to. These two libs may help you get over the OAuth complexity hump.

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.28)

I have pushed 0.1.28 to add oAuth support also resolve the version check errors.

Sorry for the delay keeping things updated. My day-job @ Microsoft consumes most of my time.

Please let me know how things go :)

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

Thanks for all your work in busy times!

Just downloaded version 0.1.29 from the Plugin Store. (You said 0.1.28?).
But unfortunately there is something going wrong:

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

Thank you for the fast update...
authentication failed, username or password.
The login on the ring website is working with the same username and password.
I don‘t know what to do.
I use the ring Videodoorbell 2 and hope you can help me.

Update to .29 solved it.

Thank you very much.

[SNIP]

I installed version 0.1.29 and had the same problem.

The solution was to edit the plugin's configuration and re-input my Ring userid and password (which in my case were empty fields).

Hope this helps? :)

Thanks Mike for the speedy update - all is working again. :D

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

Thanks for the hint my friend!
Just re-installed version 0.1.29 and a miracle happened:
without editing the plugin's configuration input, suddenly everything was working perfect and normal!

Many thanks!

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

We think the Ring plugin is unfortunately not very stable yet:

Spontaneous these kind of errors appears in the log:

Ring Doorbell Error Error in plugin execution runConcurrentThread:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "plugin.py", line 174, in runConcurrentThread
TypeError: object of type 'bool' has no len()

Ring Doorbell Error plugin runConcurrentThread function returned or failed (will attempt again in 10 seconds)


When we restart the plugin the errors are gone for a while.

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

I added some extra error checking in 0.1.30. Let me know if you still see it after that update.

Re: Ring Doorbell Plugin (version 0.1.25)

Thanks for the update to 0.1.30

Unfortunately it gives an error;

Ring Doorbell Error Login to Ring site failed. Canceling processing!

And it isn't working anymore :(
