I’m a Ring doorbell expert and I know a clever way to cut down on endless alerts – it’s easy to setup

THERE’S nothing worse then getting too many notifications from your Ring doorbell.

Thankfully, there are ways to ensure you receive far fewer so your iPhone stops pinging with every single movement.

Little do all Ring owners realise, you can actually schedule when motion alerts are sent.

This basically means you can tell the device when it doesn’t need to look out for anything dodgy outside.

For example, you probably like having motion alerts when you’re away from the house.

But you work from home on Fridays so don’t need to know about anything on that day.

Or maybe the bin collection happens on Wednesdays between 7am and 7.30am – you can set your Ring doorbell to not get triggered at this time alone.

How to schedule times when you don’t want Ring motion alerts

Open the Ring app and tap the three lines at the top left.

Go to Devices and choose the Ring product you wish you change.

Select Motion Settings, then Motion Schedule.

Here you can create a rule to disable motion alerts during a set time and day.

Give it a name and hit Save.

Then next time you won’t get so many alerts.
