Is there a way to modify ADT's Window and/or thin Door sensors in some way to work as door sensors for Ring's Home Security System?

I am transitioning from an ADT security system to Ring's, but am not keen on buying Ring's door sensors for $20 each to replace ADT's.

This should be one of the sensors (by visual): Door. (I will update if I find the other sensor.)

(This SE:IoT question was similar, but is for the Samsung SmartThings. The problem was that the sensor used 345 MHz - incompatible.)

(Also asking on SE:HomeAutomation - I am not sure which forum is most relevant.)

    Please do not cross post the same questions to multiple SE sites. If the question if not suitable for a site the moderators can move it, but cross posing splits responses. – hardillb Sep 18 '18 at 6:34

    Just an aside: this site is effectively the Home Automation Stack Exchange (as well as more industrial uses of IoT)—you asked on Home Improvement (DIY) where I don't think it will be on-topic. It's perfectly on-topic here, though. – Aurora0001 Sep 18 '18 at 14:09
  • Can you provide more data about the sensors, and anything that leads you to believe there may be enough in common between the two vendor's standards? – Sean Houlihane Sep 19 '18 at 11:29
