Scheduling times when you don't want to receive motion alerts

The Motion Schedule feature in the Ring app allows you to schedule periods of time when you do not want to receive motion alerts. If, for example, you know that the bins are collected every Tuesday between 7:30 and 7:45 AM, you may want to turn off Motion Alerts during that time.  

To create a Motion Schedule:

  • Tap the three lines on the top left of the Ring app
  • Select Devices
  • Select the desired device
  • Select Motion Settings
  • Select Motion Schedule
  • Create a rule to disable Motion Alerts during a specific time and day
  • Name the rule
  • Select Save

To toggle a Motion Schedule rule on or off

Once you have created a Motion Schedule Rule, it will appear in a list on the Motion Schedule page. You can toggle the item(s) on or off from the rules list by tapping on the toggle control button on the right. If the toggle is blue, the rule is enabled (turned on). If the toggle is white, the rule is disabled (turned off).   

To edit a Motion Schedule rule

You can edit each rule by selecting the rule which will take you to the same screen used to create the rule. From there you can modify the rule with the new settings and save.

Delete a Motion Schedule rule

You can delete a rule by swiping left on the rule. A red Delete button will appear, then you can confirm that you want to delete the rule. 

Note: During the time that Motion Alerts are disabled due to Motion Schedules, you can’t turn on Motion Alerts manually without cancelling the Motion Schedule. Although your Motion Alerts are disabled, your cameras will still record during that time.
