Manually Activate Siren Only

Hi there

I recently bought the full starter kit but am trying to find out if there is a way I can change the siren so it is manually activated only?

I have an indoor camera that sometimes triggers a motion (there is a big tree outside the window that often casts a shadow). I do not want the alarm to sound but instead send an alert to my phone so I can check manually.

In other words, is there a way I can keep all motion notifications on without it sounding the alarm?


If you have a Ring Alarm Motion Detector that is in an area that might cause a false alarm, there is the option to exclude that particular Sensor/ Detector from the armed mode. This can be done in the Ring app by visiting the Menu > Settings > Modes > Away/ Home, and toggling off the desired device.

You can then enable or control chirps for the rest of your Alarm devices, and even visit the Motion Detector settings in the Ring app to ensure the Motion Alerts are enabled. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
