Motion Sensitivity Slider for Ring Video Doorbell Elite

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. 

Using the Motion Sensitivity slider

Your Ring Video Doorbell Elite can be programmed to respond to varying degrees of motion using the 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 are unnecessary. You can use the Motion Sensitivity slider to reduce these kinds of motion alerts. 

How to access Motion Settings

  1. Tap the
    on the left side of your Dashboard in the
    Ring app
  2. Tap your
    Ring Video Doorbell Elite.
  3. Tap
    Motion Settings
  4. Adjust the Motion Sensitivity slider and other motion settings according to your preferences. 

Getting too many motion alerts?

Activating Person Alerts via Smart Alerts and disabling alerts for other motion prevents you from getting unwanted notifications such as your pets walking in front of your doorbell, car headlights or blowing branches.
