Missing Video

I have a gap in the recorded video when there was clearly motion at the time.

Is there a way to video constant footage from today?


Hi @jeevesy83! If you have a motion event in your event history, there should be a recording as long as you were subscribed to a Protect Plan during this event. If there is not a motion notification for this time, there will not be a video available, however, there might be a snapshot available on your timeline depending on your device and app settings. If you are unable to review the recording of an event and you are subscribed, check you recordings via web browser at Ring.com to see if it shows up there. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

I just had the same issue and this makes no sense. I had something delivered at a certain time and ten minutes later it was gone. The video recorded when the item was delievered and then skips the ten minutes of activity. Clearly the motion settings doesnt seem to be working and I would think goes aainst the whole idea of a ring product if its choosing when to record motion even with all my settings and connectivity working. :frowning:


I just had this problem this morning. I had a delivery and the Ring did not pick up motion or person at my door at all. Wowwww. I could the mailman at my door but nothing from my Ring doorbell to notify me. Totally unacceptable.


Same here! Very frustrating!!

We had a delivery today and there is no video of the delivery person, although the ring app alarm on our phones rang at the time of the delivery. The only video that got saved was of me getting the package off the front porch a few minutes later. The next earlier video was 2 hours earlier.

I know the time of the delivery from the FedEx text acknowledging delivery.

Could it be due to perhaps a poor wifi signal that caught the motion but could not handle capturing the video? But it does not even show an event on my app.

Same Problem - Video and motion detection suddenly stopped at 11:30 am today. The health of the unit - Power Status is Very Good, Signal Strenght is 40, Firmware is Up todate, Wifi Speed is 100M down and 20M up. Numerous people came to our door this afternoon - not once did a motion detection get set off - and there is no video since yesterday evening. I can see the Ring doorbell IP address on my router can ping the unit.

I had this same problem a month ago. Spend two hours on the phone with level 2 technical support. They replaced the unit. The new unit worked for three weeks flawlessly until today when the video and motion detector suddenly stopped working. Ring needs to figure out what the problem really is.


I have a problem the motion and video
didn’t work today for more than 5 hours from 5:30 to 10:30 can you please check and send me this period of time. It is important please email it to me or call me. Thanks.

Sorry to hear about this experience neighbors! If you had activity near your devices for an event to trigger and no recording saved, please ensure that your Protect Plan subscription is active and did not lapse.

Motion failing to detect is usually due to motion settings such as zones, sensitivity, people only mode, or even motion scheduling options. Even if motion is scheduled to not notify, it should still record. Please try removing and reinstalling the Ring app on your mobile device, to ensure it is up to date and optimally integrated with your phone.

If your Video Doorbell seems to not be responsive to motion or live views, and is not recording despite subscription being active, try resetting the Doorbell by holding the setup button for 20 seconds. Once complete, perform a new setup in the Ring app, allow updates to complete, and test motion/ video. Please let us know how this goes! :slight_smile:
