Using Camera Motion Zones with your Ring Video Doorbell (2nd Generation)

Set up and customise your Camera Motion Zones for your Ring devices.

Camera Motion Zones can help you detect motion in the areas that matter the most to you, and reduce the number of "false" motion alerts (such as cars driving by).

By drawing your Camera Motion Zones to exclude high-traffic areas like public paths and roads, you can increase your Ring device's effectiveness.
