camera motion detection range

Is Ring planning on providing a camera that has a motion detection range greater than 30'?

Re: camera motion detection range

Hey @frazier-jim! Our devices are designed to fit various environments, allowing neighbors to fine tune their experience through settings and mounting. If any one device is not entirely capturing the area, we recommend adding another Cam to your "Ring of security".

 

Check out our feature request board as well, where you can make requests for features or additions that we regularly share with our teams here.  Smiley Happy

Re: camera motion detection range

The problem I have is that I can’t install a second camera. The distance between where I can place a camera and the object I wish to watch is between 95 and 100 feet away. Motion detection range only goes out to around 30 feet. I do not wish to expose the second camera where anyone could take it. I need a camera with a much larger motion detection range.

Re: camera motion detection range

Thanks for those details! That is certainly a long distance to cover for motion detection. The best solution for a range like this would be to add a Smart Lighting Motion Sensor and Bridge.  The Motion Sensor can be placed in the desired area of your property, and then linked to trigger your Cam or Doorbells to record via the Bridge. 

 

While the Bridge is intended to be placed in your home and connect to your in-home wifi, it will then communicate to your other Smart Lighting devices through a low power radio frequency that allows your Motion Sensor to connect at a much further distance than wifi would.
