Available Device Events
- Button Press – Event executes when ever a Ring Doorbell’s button has been pressed
- Motion – Events that execute when any Ring device detects motion
The Ring Events driver allows you to execute programming based on Motion and Button press events. This is a great tool for turning on lights and playing announcements in a URC Total Control project.

This is a two way module that is packaged as a TCM 2 file that needs to be imported in to the Accelerator software. Then navigate to where you downloaded the Ring – Events.tcm2 file and choose it. After you have imported make sure you restart Accelerator in order to complete the installation.
After you have restarted Accelerator go to step 4. and navigate to the module.

Next in the bottom right under System Parameter Information you will insert your BlackWire module license key where it say license=. Under this is where you will paster your newly acquired pin code.
Under Step 12. Macro Editing, choose Edit Automation Macros. Click Add Macro and choose your Ring under Available Devices. Choose what event you would like to program, motion or button press.
