Smart Alerts: Refining your motion alerts for people and other motion events

If you have a Ring Protect plan subscription, you can refine your motion alerts to distinguish between people and other motions using Smart Alerts in the Ring app:

  1. Tap the menu icon on the top left
  2. Tap Devices
  3. Select the relevant device
  4. Tap Motion Settings
  5. Tap Smart Alerts
  6. Tap Enable Feature, then Continue
  7. On the next screen you'll be able to decide whether to record and send alerts when people, other types of motion or packages are detected
  8. Once you've adjusted your settings, tap Done


If it's not clear whether a motion event contains people, due to lighting, weather or other conditions, you may still get a Motion Alert.

This feature is available for all Ring Video Doorbells and Security Cameras.
