I have tested motion zones with the Ring Indoor Cam. Here are four easy steps to set up motion detection zones yourself in the Ring app.
Note: You need a Ring security camera or doorbell with an active Ring login to make these steps work, but you do not need a Ring Protect account.
Click the desired device
On the app home screen clock on the device you want to adjust with motion zones – in my case this is my Ring Indoor Cam named "Entryway".
As soon as you click on the specific device you will be taken to the general landing page for that product. Here you can adjust all settings.
Select Device Settings and then Motion Settings
For motion zones, you want to select "Device Settings" on the landing page and then "Motion Settings".
Select Motion settings will lead you to the main page where you can access all specific motion settings of that device. From here you can do everything from adjusting the sensitivity of the motion sensor to creating a motion detection scheme and adjusting motion detection with up to three zones.
Select & # 39; Motion Zones & # 39;
Click & # 39; Motion Zones & # 39; in the & # 39; Motion Settings & # 39; of the app. This gives you an image of what your camera is seeing based on the current position. My Entryway camera focuses on the front door and the stairs from the basement to the first floor of the house.
I want to create a movement zone at the front door. The zone is the area that detects motion and Ring then ignores everything else.
Create your motion zone (s)
Click the plus sign in the upper right corner of the screen to add a motion zone. The zone appears in the center of the screen, but you can use the dots to move it. This first one is for the front door, so I rename it from the standard "Zone 1" to "Front door".

When you press the & # 39; X & # 39; To exit the page, the app must save your changes and make your new move zone (s) active. And that's all – you're done.
