*Ring is always working toward improving your home security experience. As of October 2020, we’ve started releasing a new feature for battery-powered devices called Customisable Motion Zones. Customisable Motion Zones have been a standard feature on wired Ring devices for some time, but they will soon be an option for Ring neighbours using battery-powered devices.

To find out more about Customisable Motion Zones for Ring battery-powered devices, click here.
