I would like to request the ability to set different motion zones to work at different times.
At the moment, at certain times of the day when the sun is low in the sky, the sun creates shadows which reach up my path. The ring sees this and even with ‘people only mode’ on, gives continuous notifications that make the system intolerable. We live in London so footfall down our residential road is still high. I have had to significantly shrink my motion zone so that the doorbell is only triggered when someone is very close to the front door. This really isn’t what we wanted the Ring for - we need to see when people come up our path and go towards our bins as couriers often leave parcels there. Also we want to see anyone who comes into our front yard. At the moment this not within the motion zone and therefore not triggered for notifications or recording. If I could have the Ring change motion zone at certain times of day, I could have it switch to the smaller motion zone for the few hours or so where the sun is low in the sky, that would solve the issue.
From doing some Googling I can see this is a commonly requested feature on Reddit and also requested at least 10 times on here when searching for ‘motion schedule’. After looking through some more posts I can see there are many more requests for this feature under different topics/terms. People would find this useful for various reasons.
This seems a really basic feature that could easily be incorporated into the motion scheduling UI.
It is disappointing as without this feature I can see that I will eventually move away from Ring. I hope this feature can be added asap.
