Ring Alarm Motion Detector Settings

The Ring Alarm Motion Detector has multiple motion detection sensitivity settings that can help protect your home or business while avoiding false alarms. These settings are also useful for avoiding false alarms, especially if you have pets.

The Motion Detector  has the following settings:

Low Sensitivity

This setting allows for some slight movement in a space before it triggers the Alarm. Designed for locations where multiple pets or larger pets will be left inside when Ring Alarm is armed in Away mode.


Medium Sensitivity

This setting allows for minimal movement in a space before it triggers the Alarm. This is designed to accommodate one pet or several small pets when Ring Alarm is armed in Away mode.


High Sensitivity

It is the most sensitive setting, and it will trigger Ring Alarm immediately.

This setting is not recommended if you have pets.

 

We recommend that you test all devices after installation to ensure that you've selected the best location and the correct settings to accommodate any pets.
