Customize Your Motion Settings

Ring is always working toward improving your home security experience. Beginning October 2020, we’ve begun releasing a new feature for battery-powered devices called Customizable 

Motion Zones. Customizable Motion Zones have been a standard feature on wired Ring devices for some time, but they will soon be an option for Ring neighbors using battery-powered devices.

To find out more about Customizable Motion Zones for Ring battery-powered devices, click here.
