Using the Motion Sensitivity Slider with your Ring Video Doorbell Elite

How Your Ring Video Doorbell Elite Sees the World

In many ways, your Ring Video Doorbell Elite sees the world the way you do. After you draw a geometric motion zone covering the area you want to see, your Ring camera focuses on that area. The Ring device then monitors the area you've customized for movement. 

Your Motion Sensitivity Slider tool determines how much motion you want your Ring Video Doorbell  Elite to react to.  

This article will teach you to use the Motion Sensitivity Slider so you can properly set up your Ring Video Doorbell Elite and make it a more effective motion detection tool.


Using Your Motion Sensitivity Slider

There may be things in your environment such as the shadow of a moving tree branch or the sun glinting off a shiny object that may trigger motion events and send notifications that you don't need to see. You can use the motion sensitivity slider to reduce these kinds of motion alerts. 

To Access Motion Settings:

  • Tap the three lines on the top left of your Ring app.
  • Tap your Ring Video Doorbell Elite.
  • Tap Motion Settings.
  • Adjust the motion settings according to your preferences. 



Activating People Only Mode, via the toggle right above the Motion Sensitivity Slider prevents you from getting unwanted notifications such as your pets walking in front of your doorbell.
