Re: Longer Adjustable Recording

Hi Dbrecki, I wasn't aware it was available for the wired cams, that frustrates me even more, I'm the same, 2 cameras, solar + both batteries.  Yeah I don't care how much battery it uses, that would be my problem. I'm with you, I might sell mine and look for an alternative. If I have the option of up to a 10 minute max recording with a notification every 60 seconds, or a notification every time motion is detected during that specific recording. I would be very happy. Maybe I'll make a post suggesting these parameters and maybe peoples "Kudos" could give  Ring Team an indication of the support of the idea?.

Longer Recording Time Suggestion?

Hello everyone, there a lot of posts including one of my own commenting on how the Spotlight Cam(Battery/Solar) would be better if it was longer adjustable. Nut no real info about what people want, maybe a suggestion in terms of parameters and peoples feedback on the post might help ring come to a decision on what's to provide?.

I would suggest up to 10 minutes recording, adjustable.

And a notification up to every 60 seconds during that recording if motion is still active, also "Motion during recording notification time" adjustable  30-120 seconds.  

Give a Kudos if you think it's a good suggestion, or maybe make a suggestion if you have alternative ideas?. :-)

Re: Longer Adjustable Recording

Dbrecki, fully support your recommendation.  I have one camera at the front door, it's solar and is always at 100 percent, so I can easily record for longer periods, but, in addtion to that I'm not happy with the time it takes to view the motion.  Normally, whatever caused the notification has long gone by the time I get to view the video.  For example, if a package is delivered to the front door and I try to observe the motion, the driver is already back in the truck pulling away.  I won't buy any more of this system and look for a different solution.

Better integrate Cams with Security

If you have cameras AND the security system, they should work better together...  For example:  Automatically turn off and on the motion alerts with the alarm.  When my alarm is not set, I don't need to be constantly told I am walking around my living room!   If I have my back slider open and going in and out to my patio, the outside light and sensor keeps going on and off and filling my history log with useless notifications.

Re: Longer Recording Time Suggestion?

Basically record as long as there is movement.  So if 2 min of movement record for 2 min.  Have a user settable timer (x seconds).  If movement is not detected for x sec (say 2) then camera stops recording.  That way you capture everything that moves for as long as it moves.  Even now it records 30 sec but 25 sec of that is wasted most of the time.

Added new camera and on 30 day free trial but already have plan.

Why don't they put on box somewhere or tell you that you'll have to pay more for the more cameras you have - seems to be a bait and switch

150% in agreement. I think we all need to spread the word and stop this hype that Ring is Security. If the cams stop recording unless you quickly press live view to continuously record and actually capture anything of substance for the police, yet when you press live view it takes 30 sec or more to load as you watch the wheel spinning the thief is in and out and all you have if you’re lucky is a glimpse of motion but can’t see where they went or what they took because again the cam doesn’t start recording or if it does it’s like a glitch and the person is computerized out of the frame. If a response from a ring community telling me what release and what date will contain user option to set recording time I’m switching to a vendor who can. $thousands of dollars wasted. I got my home security through another vendor. My trust in Ring is depleted. I’ve been ripped off twice.

Physical disable camera-Security concern about hacking

I've seen several topics on the issue of disabling recording video/audio but all the topics appear to relate to disabling via the app. My concern however is, if I can disable it via the app what prevents a hacker from re-enabling the camera? 

The best solution would be if Ring would implement (at least for indoor camera's) a physical switch to turn off the camera. 

Until that occurs, can anyone from Ring identify what security prevents the camera from being operated by someone other than myself? (I understand that at a base level others can't simply access my camera, I'm talking about more capable individuals like hackers or former staff).

Motion zone time schedules

I'd like the ability to set time schedules for different motion zones. For example, during the day my driveway is empty and so the zone extends to the edge of my sidewalk. However, at night my work truck is parked in the driveway and because of the camera's perspective the truck covers much of the street. Since the motion zone stops at the sidewalk, the majority of my truck is outside of the zone. I'd like to be able to setup a zone 2 that covers my whole truck and would only be monitored from 6pm-5am.
