Motion detection sensor triggers too often

The motion detection sensor cannot adjusted to trigger for a smaller area. I adjusted the area to trigger to almost the smallest space, but still the light turned on when motion detected in the far end.
So this sensor is really suck; where I can understand the usability for the sensor, I prefer to assign an area in de camera view to trigger the light when motion is detected.

Like I still hope it is possible to trigger other functions based on motions within area that can be created.

For now, another a disappointment of the ring camera

Hi there, @Remco74! Motion detection can be adjusted within your Ring app motion setting, and usually will feature a fine tuning option for specific motion events. Check out our Help Center article for refining your motion detection for people. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

I have set it to the smalles area, still it triggers the lights when I’m far away

Hi @Remco74, happy to chime in here. In that cause, you may want to consider adjusting the positioning or angle of the Ring Camera to focus its field of view more on the area you want to capture motion in. This will help prevent it from detecting motion farther out, or simply focus more on a specific area around your home in addition to adjusting the settings as needed. :slight_smile:

That’s nit an option. I have many of these cameras. Al all have the same issue. It does not matter how smal the motion sensor is set to, they always trigger in the widest range. I have tested all

The motion detection in de camera (thus not the light, as that was is bad at all) can not see the difference between a person and a cat. I adjust the setting too the lowest, but still when a cat walks in to the covered range, the recording is starting.
