Stick up cam turns on randomly
troubleshooting
wireless-security-cameras
Hey We purchased a Stick up cam to use indoors in our sons nursery. Randomly, the camera will turn on even though the motion sensor is turned off and we are all in bed, my sons is fast asleep (not moving), there’s zero movement. It really freaks me out like someone has hacked into our camera and is watching us. The reason I know the camera turns on is that it happens when I’m putting him to bed and when Iv been up every 2 hours breastfeeding him (out of sight of the camera but I can still see it). Does anyone else have this problem? I’m so close to sending it back to Ring as I really don’t feel that safe with it in the room which is the complete opposite feeling you want when you buy a security camera. Thanks

Not sure if this was addressed for everyone but we’ve got a few of the internal cameras and they’ve started to switch on in the early hours of the morning for no reason, open the app and it doesn’t show them active but the light on the cameras suggest otherwise. Am I missing something because nothing suggests a update or anything but they turn on and I’m unable to find a reasonable answer for why this happens

I am having the same issue. Last night the stick up camera clicked a few times and then turned on. In the app there is no record of a recording and it is not showing its active but the blue light is on and then goes off.

So I don’t know I’d this helps you but Tylor from Ring phoned me and went through a bunch of things and I believe mine to be a software issue which now appears to be resolved. Ring recommend a factory reset and let the device update itself again. If that failed to fix it they offered to replace free of charge. They had great customer service and sorted my issue out super quick. They then walked me through to make my app really secure. I’d say try a reset first and if not, reach out to Ring to see if you can get your swapped out cause I found the random camera turning on very concerning. I hope this helps you

Thank you for the update. I will definitely try this. I am glad they were able to fix your issue and hope mine is easy as well.

This literally just happen to mine 10 minutes ago and it’s never happened before. I keep a stick up cam in my living room and I only record when we’re not home so it’s turned off right now. I’m usually not up this late and it just randomly clicked and the light came on. I checked the app and there are no recordings. I feel like someone is watching me. What could this be?!?

Same thing happened to my ring indoor cam not too long ago. I started googling and found this thread. It made a clicking sound and turned on right in front of me. I knew it was off because I checked the app. It is concerning.
