Motion Zones Pro Tip
Ensure that busy streets do not intersect when adjusting Motion Zones. If you receive too many motion alerts from your video doorbell, you may have to adjust the Motion Zones so they exclude those areas.




Adjust the number of motion alerts in the Ring app by customizing:

  • Motion Scheduling: The motion scheduling control allows you to schedule coverage to avoid receiving alerts triggered by a regular occurrence. For example, if you know your garbage always gets picked up between 7:30 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. on Tuesdays, you can schedule your motion detection to turn off during that time.
  • Motion Sensitivity: The Motion Sensitivity slider will help you fine tune the area your device covers to trigger a motion event. If you receive too many motion alerts, it might be a good idea to use this setting to minimize Motion Sensitivity.

To adjust Motion Sensitivity in the Ring app:

  1. Tap the menu (☰).
  2. Tap Devices.
  3. Tap the device you want to view.
  4. Tap Motion Settings.
  5. Under Motion Sensitivity, use the slider to adjust motion detection sensitivity.
    1. Slide to the left for minimum Motion Sensitivity.
    2. Or, slide to the right for maximum Motion Sensitivity.
  6. Tap Save in the upper right corner of your dashboard.
