Motion Zone Size/Area

I have a Ring Stick Up Battery camera that is operating fine.

My question is: Is there a minimal size that a motion zone can be set to? I want to focus the motion alerts to just a gate area. But there appears to be a minimal size that the motion zone can be set to.

In this case the gate is probably 30-40 feet away from the camera.

Thanks in advance,


Hi @Mabry. Yes, there is a minimum size for the Motion Zones. With your gate being 30-40 ft. away, you are a the maximum effective distance for motion detection with our Ring devices. Typically, when a camera is properly placed, 30 ft. is the longest distance you can expect to get effective motion detection. This Help Center article here will explain this in better detail. I hope this helps!
