I have just bought a new Ring Doorbell 4 with battery.
I also have a complete set up of 13 window sensors, 1 motion detector and 2 stick up cam.
I cannot find what should be a very basic feature :
The doorbell is able to notify me of a movement detection.
But there is no point in doing that while my Ring Alarm is disarmed.
The reason is that while I am home and passing in front of my door, i don’t want to be spam withmovement notification… If i am gardening or cleaning stuff on the frontdoor, there is indeed no point in receiving those notification.
However the notifications are very usefull while i am away (Away Mode) or sleeping with “At home” mode. Is it possible to turn off/on automatically the movement notification based on the activated mode? If not… how is this is not one of the most requested feature? I can’t understand who want to receive a notification each time he is leaving home through its front door for example.
I have a very good example of soemthing that happened to me last week. I disabled the Notification for the reason i mentionned above. When we woke up, my wife found an empty dustbin in front of the door. The camera recorded the moment when a young guy at 1 am on Monday (!) decided to throw a dustbin in front of our door. If the dustbin wasn’t there… i wouldn’t have had the information. With rich notification, when i woke up i can see that something happened right in front of our home.
If what i request is possible, can you guide on how to activate it?
If not… is there any chance that this could be implemented any time soon… i am sure many customers are looking for this.
EDIT : i found that in the mode setting i can set the doorbell to not detect motion while in disarmed mode. However, this is not exactly what i want. If something happen the day, this will not at all record it. I would like to record it… just not to get a notification of the movement itself.
