Just installed the ring system with retrofit kit. Installation was pretty simple and straight forward. Only thing I wished for was hardwire plug with backup battery instead of running solely on AA batteries.
That is how wired security panels work afaik. We would know which zone is triggered and not the individual contact sensor if there are multiple sensors connected to a single zone. It is very common to have multiple contact sensors in a single zone. What I did was to logically separate them for easy ID, like downstairs windows are all one zone.

Came to $135 plus tax after the 10% discount for having a Ring Plus subscription. If you are buying this and don't already have the plus subscription sign up for it first.

Yep. Ring allows you to stack the 10% off. I ended up doing so with 20% on two solar panels for the Spotlight Cams. Came out to $57 after tax, shipped.

You can have 2 kits to expand it to 16. It says that somewhere in their faq.

Works with most if not all. You basically yank out your old system down to just the wire. Than reconnect the varies zones to that.

If you cannot identify zones and do basic wiring, this is not for you.

I have a dsc keypad that is currently not tied to any security service. Can I still use this panel to input my code or do I have to buy a ring keypad

Edit: Looks like it won't. If you want to keep your old keypad look into the Hub 6. It's supposed to work with DSC systems and most Honeywell ones as well

"When you add the Retrofit Alarm Kit with your wired zones to your Ring Alarm, the entire zone will be managed similar to individual Ring Alarm Contact Sensors, but you won't be able to identify exactly which wired contact sensor was triggered. "

Please correct me if I'm wrong but...
This doesn't sound very helpful to me. I want to know which window or door was triggered during an event— this sounds like it doesn't allow that. Better to just buy more Ring sensors in my opinion.
