Ability to set notification preference per zone

Ability to set notification preference per zone

I’d like the ability to set notification per zone vs whole camera. My use case is based on the new police request feature. I have two cameras that face the road. I want to be able to set a zone that records motion, but not notifies me of it. Right now if I increase my zone to cover the road, I get 100+ notifications a day as people and cars go by, so my zone is set just to the edge of my property. That way I get notified if anyone comes on to my property. However, the police have this new feature where they can request ring users to check their cams if they need assistance with crimes, abductions, etc. since I’m forced to only set my zone to edge of my property, I wouldn’t have any footage of the road if requested. I’d like to be able to set a zone on the road that records, but doesn’t notify. Then a zone that covers my property that records AND notifies. You already have multi-zone capabilities. Just move the records and notification settings to the zone setup.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! I have the same request. I want to record all motion in front of my house but only get notified when someone comes up my driveway or to my door. I set up two zones that would accomplish this, but then realize that I can only set up notifications for each device not each zone within a device. This would be a fabulous addition..

This request is important!  I don't understand why the option for multiple motion zones is available if you can't differentiate between them, other than the immediate identification of where motion occurred.  Each zone should be customizable in sensitivity and notification options.  I manage a system of 460 Avigilon cameras and have the ability to write rules for about every possible scenario out there, and would love to see Ring add this zone customization option.  I do understand this is not a commercial system like Avigilon, and you (Ring) have to manage server space, but this would give us all the ability to help keep our neighborhoods safer without being notified excessively.  Thanks for your consideration.

Yes please.  I just setup two zones, one to monitor a portion of my backyard the other for my pool area.   Not sure what the value of multiple zones is if you cannot notify differently.  

 

It would be helpful to schedule notifications differently if there is activity in the pool area but not the yard.

Absolutely!!!

This is a great idea.  I just got the Ring email blast about the option to help out police, but if I expand my capture beyond my yard the notifications are unmanageable, so I can't really participate.  Seems shortsighted to start this partnership without this feature.

Totally agree this is needed.

@Ring, you tell people to post to this feature request board, then ignore the requests. How sad. 

New Neighbor

So many people have asked for this, in so many different requests. Hopefully it gets through to the dev team. 

New Neighbor

This is greatly needed. Thank you.

would love to see this feature as well. We have had a number of crime incidents in our area and had to turn off notifications so that we can record motion on the road to help out.
