I tested movement zones with the Ring Indoor Cam. In four easy steps, you can set up motion detection zones in the Ring app itself.
Note: To perform these steps, you will need a ring surveillance camera or a doorbell with an active ring login. However, you do not need a Ring Protect account.
Click on the desired device.
On the app home screen clock, click the device you want to customize with movement zones. In my case, this is my indoor ring camera named "Entrance".
When you click The device displays the entire landing page for this product. Here you can adjust the settings.
Select Device Settings and then Motion Settings.
For motion zones, you must select "Device Settings" on the Home screen and then "Motion Settings".
Select Movement Settings directs you to the page where you can access all the specific motion settings of this device. From here, you can adjust the sensitivity of the motion sensor, create a motion detection schedule, and adjust motion detection with up to three zones.
Select "Movement zones".
In the app, in the Motion Settings area, click Motion Zones. This brings you to a view of what your camera sees based on its current position. My entrance camera is directed to the front door and the stairs from the basement to the first floor of the house.
I want to create a movement zone on the front door. The zone is the area where motion is detected and Ring ignores everything else.
Create your movement zone (s).
Click the plus sign in the upper right corner of the screen to add a movement zone. The zone will appear in the middle of the screen, but you can move it with the points. This first is for the front door, so I rename it from the default "Zone 1" to "Front Door".
If you click the X to exit the page, the app should save your changes and activate your new movement zones. And done.
