Temporarily disabling the motion detector

I just installed (hard wiring) the Ring Doorbell (Gen 2). I’m having contractors coming in to do some work. How can I temporarily disable the motion detector while they are here?

Hi @kre2153. You can utilize the Motion Snooze feature to temporarily silence motion alerts from your Doorbell for a specified amount of time. The motion would still be detected, but you wouldn’t be notified of it. If you have a Ring Protect plan, or the 30 day Ring Protect trial, you can also use the Modes settings to turn motion detection off under a specific Mode, then swap to that Mode while the contractors are there. I hope this information helps!
