Using the Motion Sensitivity slider on your Spotlight Cam Wired/Mount

Use your Motion Sensitivity slider to determine how much motion you want your Ring Spotlight Cam (1st Gen), Wired and Mount to react to.

How to use 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 a motion event and send out notifications that you don't really want. You can use the motion sensitivity slider to reduce these kinds of motion alerts.

To access Motion Settings:

  1. Open the
    Ring app.
  2. Tap
    Menu (≡)
    on the top left side of your dashboard.
  3. Tap your
    Spotlight Cam Wired/Mount.
  4. Tap
    Motion Settings
  5. Adjust the motion sensitivity according to your preferences. 

Reducing unwanted Motion Events

Activating People Only Mode in the Motion Settings can prevent you from getting unwanted notifications such as your pets walking in front of your Spotlight Cam, car headlights, or blowing branches.
