I wrote a Ring Video doorbell add-on. It's my first add-on, so be gentle Tongue

My repo zip file is here: https://github.com/jlippold/repository.j...-1.0.0.zip

And I wrote up a summary on my blog: https://jed.bz/2017/06/24/Ring-doorbell-Kodi-add-on/

Source code: https://github.com/jlippold/repository.j...g_doorbell

The official Kodi version does not contain any content what so ever. This means that you should provide your own content from a local or remote storage location, DVD, Blu-Ray or any other media carrier that you own. Additionally Kodi allows you to install third-party plugins that may provide access to content that is freely available on the official content provider website. The watching or listening of illegal or pirated content which would otherwise need to be paid for is not endorsed or approved by Team Kodi.

Sweet! If ring would write an open API (with live feeds!), i'm sure many more people would buy a ring too

agreed. my ideal feature would be a pop of a still photo when the ring is activated.

Yea man, as far as I can tell ring doesn't even offer jpeg snapshots. But the W.A.F. of push notifications, and offsite storage is really nice.

Can anyone confirm whether this works in Kodi 16 or needs Kodi 17 (for HTTPS)?
