Motion Zone Settings

After adjusting the motion zones where I wanted coverage, the app still records motion where I don’t want to record such as the street with passing cars.

Hi there, @Az91702! Which model Ring device are you using? Depending on device, there are various motion settings such as people only mode, which will fine tune your alerts to human caused events. We’ve recently made some changes to motion on battery powered devices, allowing for customizable motion zones. Check out our Community post for more information on these features.

If your Ring device is a VIdeo Doorbell, whenever a Video Doorbell mounting scenario is facing a street, we like to recommend using a Wedge kit to angle the view slightly downwards to avoid vehicles in the street. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:

I am having the same problem. My zones are not even CLOSE to the street, yet I am getting a notification for every car that drives by! ANNOYOING! I feel like this is a newer problem. If I set it to people only, then when a car pulls in my actual drive, will it go off?

Hi there, @lid535! In addition to the steps recommend above in this thread, you may also find interest in @Caitlyn_Ring’s Guide to Optimizing your Video Doorbell’s Motion Detection.

If you have a Camera device instead, feel free to confirm which kind for more specific suggestions. To answer your question about people only mode, this motion setting is designed to pick up human like movement. Feel free to also check out our help center article about people only mode for more information. I hope this helps! :slight_smile:
