Scheduling Times When You Don't Want to Receive Motion Alerts

The Motion Scheduling Feature allows you to schedule periods of time when you do not want to receive motion alerts. If, for example, you know that the trash is picked up every Tuesday between 7:30 and 7:45 AM, you may want to shut down motion alerts during that time.  

To Create a Motion Schedule:

  • Tap the three lines on the top left of the Ring app.
  • Select Devices
  • Select the particular device you'd like to apply the motion schedule to.
  • Select Motion Settings.
  • Select Motion Schedule
  • Create a rule to disable the motion alerts during a specific time and day.
  • Name the rule.
  • Select Save.

To Toggle a Motion Schedule Rule On or Off
Once you have created a Motion Schedule Rule, it will appear in a list on the Motion Schedule page.  You can toggle the item(s) on or off from the Rules List by tapping on the toggle control button on the right. If the toggle is blue, the rule is enabled (turned on). If the toggle is white, the rule is disabled (turned off).   

To Edit a Motion Schedule Rule
You can edit each Rule by selecting the Rule which will take you to the same screen used to create the rule. From there you can modify the rule with the new settings and save.

Delete a Motion Schedule Rule
You can delete a rule by swiping left on the rule. A red Delete button will appear, then you can confirm that you want to delete the rule. 

Note: During the time that motion alerts are disabled due to motion scheduling, you can’t turn on motion alerts manually without cancelling the motion schedule. Also, your alerts will be disabled but your cameras will still record during that time.
