If you are a proud owner of the Ring Doorbell, you might have faced the trouble of getting alerts all day long. Fortunately, there is a way to tweak the motion sensitivity zones of your Ring Doorbell to eliminate false alarms. In this blog post, we will provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to adjust Ring Doorbell distance and motion settings.
Firstly, open the Ring app on your phone and click on the hamburger menu (three lines in the upper left-hand side). Then, click on “Devices” and select the device whose motion zones you want to edit. For example, if you want to change the motion zones for your front door, select “Front Door.”
Next, click on “Motion Settings” and explore the different options available to adjust motion sensitivity. One option is “Motion Sensitivity,” which lets you adjust the sensitivity level of your Ring Doorbell. You can choose between a high or low sensitivity level, depending on your preference. Another option is “People Only Mode,” which is exclusive to subscribers. This feature allows your Ring Doorbell to detect only human motion.
In addition to these settings, you can access advanced settings such as “Advanced Motion Detection,” “Motion Schedules,” and “Motion Frequency Settings.” These settings allow you to customize your motion detection experience accordingly.
However, the most significant feature of Ring Doorbell is the ability to edit motion zones. By doing so, you can choose the areas where you want the motion to get detected. To edit your motion zones, click on the “Edit Motion Zones” button and drag the blue line to create a customized motion zone. You can then tap on the screen to add or remove motion zones. For instance, if you don’t want your Ring Doorbell to detect motion from trees or birds, you can add a zone that excludes them.
It is essential to note that you can add multiple zones and name them accordingly for easier identification. After creating your custom zones, click on the “Save” button to save the changes.
In conclusion, adjusting the motion sensitivity zones of your Ring Doorbell can significantly reduce the number of false alarms you receive. By following these simple steps, you can customize your Ring Doorbell to detect only human motion and ignore other insignificant movements.
