Hi, I’ve changed battery’s in my ring alarm sensor but they are going flat within a few hours. I have tried two battery’s

Hi,

I’ve just fitted new battery’s to my door sensor and motion sensor, both battery’s have gone flat straight away - this is two separate packs of battery’s so I know it’s not the battery’s. Does anyone have any ideas what this could be? The sensors and within a couple of meters of the base station

Batteries should not lose charge this quickly. Even if there was distance between the Sensor and the Base Station, and the Sensor had a lot of events, it should still take days before the battery drains.
