Question: I've noticed that my Ring Video Recordings have recently gotten much shorter, sometimes only lasting 30 seconds. Why is this happening and is there something wrong?
Answer: No. Ring recently implemented a feature in your Video Recordings called Motion Stop. This automatically stops the recording 30 seconds (for battery-operated devices) or 60 seconds (for hardwired devices) after the Ring device stops detecting motion. This saves on battery life and data charges but is primarily the first stage for a new feature to be launched in 2017. When completed, this new feature will allow you to control how long your Ring device records footage after detecting motion.
