Turning Motion Zones On and Off

I am a person with disability. With that being said, Ring has been useful for me to be able to keep my house monitored in the event that I am out of the house and when there are anyone coming over to visit or do deliveries. It has came to my attention that the motion zones in the App cannot be turned on and off. You can only delete them or edit the zone coverage. I need help with regards to setting up zones coz I lack the tactile ability to drag and drop the lines to create a zone. I would like for my zones to be saved at least and will be able to turn a zone on and off. I create zones that cover my needs when am inside the house or add a bigger zone that I used when I leave. I used to see in the older version of the App that I could turn a zone off. But now I couldn’t find that feature. Can someone give me an idea on a work around so that I will be able to at least save the motion zones that I asked some help into making. Thank you.

Hi @tneedha. I would recommend trying out our Modes for Cameras. This allow your to set how your camera behaves when it is set to a specific mode. You can have it set to Disarmed when you are home, and Away when you leave. This will help you control your cameras to better fit your needs. Let me know if this helps!


I tried that. But what am trying to do is have multiple zones that will be set up for me by my help and I will be able to turn it on and off as I need. I tried doing the Modes and what it does it turn of All the preset zones that I have or just give a particular time of use for all the zones that were made. All of them end up being turned ON or OFF at the same time I cannot make the zones myself because I have dexterity issues. Is there a way for the zones that I have to be turned on and off with a simple update? Thank you for your help
