Summary: The Ring App will turn on the screen whenever a motion event is triggered.
The Issue: This often results in unintended phone interactions when the phone is in my pocket. Even when locked, this can result in dialing the emergency number. This issue has been reported on multiple forums, so I know it’s not just me.
Attempted Solutions: I’ve gone into the detailed app notification screen and tried changing the Notification Behavior for the “Motion Notification” category. The default is “Make sound and pop on screen”. I’ve tried all the other settings, including “Show silently and minimize”. Regardless of setting, the screen turns on, which is particularly strange for the “Show silently and minimize” setting since a notification doesn’t even appear on the screen or in the notification tray, but the screen turns on anyway.
**Not a Solution: ** Disabling notifications entirely for the Ring app might work (I haven’t tested this), but this would block the notifications entirely, which isn’t the desired outcome.
Desired Outcome: I do want to see the notification in the tray, receive appropriate sounds/vibrations depending on setting, etc. I simply don’t want the screen to turn on.
