Amazon has made it easier to only get the motion notifications you want from your Ring cameras with customizable motion zones. While theyâ€™ve always had motion-detecting capabilities, these zones will help you only monitor the areas most important to you. Hereâ€™s how.
Next, tap the gear icon.
Select the â€œMotion Settingsâ€� option from the cameraâ€™s settings menu.
If this is your first time setting up Motion Zones, youâ€™ll be met with a popup explaining them. Tap â€œContinue.â€�
In the â€œMotion Settingsâ€� menu, tap â€œEdit Motion Zones.â€�
The first motion zone defaults to a generic zone (highlighted blue). To make your own, tap â€œAdd Zone.â€�
A series of dots will appear around the highlighted area. Drag them to create your first zone. The first zone will be highlighted blue. Once done, you can name the zone and then tap â€œSave Zone.â€�
You can now see your first zone (in this case, the one named Side Yard). If youâ€™d like to create another, tap â€œAdd Zone.â€�
Like the first zone, drag the dots to arrange the highlighted area for your new zone. This second zone will be highlighted red. Name it and then tap â€œSave Zone.â€� You can only create three Motion Zones per camera.
Youâ€™re done! If you need to, you can come back and adjust the zones as needed, tweak the sensitivity of the motion zones, or even activate â€œPeople Only Mode,â€� which only notifies you if the camera sees a person walk through one of your zones.
