For a limited time, Ring Video Doorbell owners can share the Grinchmas spirit with their visitors – even when they can’t answer the door in person.

Ring is now offering six free The Grinch Quick Replies for its video doorbells throughout the holiday season!

If you want to add some Grinchmas cheer to your front door, it’s easy to add Quick Replies to your Ring Video Doorbell from the Ring App. Here’s how:

  • Open the Ring app
  • Tap the menu (≡) on the top left of the Dashboard
  • Tap Devices
  • Select the doorbell you want to set up
  • Tap the Smart Responses tile below the doorbell image
  • Tap Quick Replies.
  • Toggle the Quick Replies switch to blue
  • Set Response Time for right away or between 2-20 seconds
  • Choose a Quick Reply Message
  • Scroll down the list and select a year-round message or seasonal greeting
  • Preview a recording of the message
  • Tap Save in the top right corner

Now, your guests will hear a Grinchy greeting when they ring your doorbell, and they can leave you a response. You can watch a video of their reaction live, or play it back later with a Ring Protect subscription.

    Thank you…I could not figure this out until you posted.

    It looks like it is not available for Ring Doorbell 1st generation.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! Thanks for the heads up. ๐Ÿ˜”

    • heather_03

      I have the first gen and I use it

      • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

        Oh good! Thanks for letting us know it works on yours! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ

      • Michelle

        Thanks for this response. It would not work for me, so I googled it and found that “quick responses” was not available for 1st generation. However, after this, my husband checked on his app and it worked. It must need to be the first person on the account. Sorry to mislead. In my defense it was google that told me that. lol

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          No worries at all! Thanks a bunch for the update! โค๏ธ

    OMG I have a grinch wreath on my door and this just takes the cake! Thank you for making me smile ๐Ÿ˜ƒ This was everything and all the things at once.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww! SO fun to have your doorbell coordinate with your Grinch decor, Janessa! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ˜ Glad to hear it’s a hit!

  7. Jackie

    So cute, so how do we turn it off after the holidays just toggle the Quick Replies switch that is blue again to undo it?

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Jackie! You can change your selection at any time to get rid of the grinch or switch to other quick replies, or simply toggle off quick replies in the smart responses section to go back to none. Hope that helps! ๐Ÿค—

    I loved the Grinch one but it was sooo loud. I think my neighbors 3 houses away could hear. My neighbor after ringing doorbell just about jumped outa her socks. 8 had to turn it off as there is no volume control. ๐Ÿ™

    • Trish (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Sorry to hear there’s no way to control the volume, Maria! Thanks for sharing how this worked for you!๐Ÿค—
