Topic Wiki

Before you post, here are some quick notes about the ring (Updated August 2019), that have been discussed in this forum:

- More important that anything else - AYLOR before you buy as YMMV
- There are two types of Ring Doorbells - those that are battery powered (Doorbell/Doorbell 2/View Cam), and those that are hardwired (Pro/Pro Elite)
- Disabling the Wifi works to prevent recordings, and disabling motion zones won't alert you, but most people still think that ring will still be triggered on by motion
- There are many tools with modern Wi-fi routers - Circle, Google Wi-fi, etc that enable you to cut off your rings Wi-Fi on a schedule or manually
- If you have a hard-wired Ring, you can add a switch to the circuit to completely turn it off before Shabbos
- Some people have a manual switch, others have added a programmable relay.
- Other people cover the doorbell

Seems like after I spent hundreds on getting a Pro and a transformer (with the smart kill switch linked above - itís on Amazon btw for $7) and wiring installed, Ring has added the option to set a schedule for turning off motion sensors. Has anyone tested yet? Does it alone seem to solve all the Shabbos issues?
Don't see that option

Not here on the top right? Also in Motion Settings. Maybe you need to update app or maybe itís only on the Pro and you have a different version?

I saw that. But that isn't to schedule. Have to do it manually. In motion settings it allows you to schedule alerts but not too actually turn off motion detection

Have you tested to make sure that it doesn't list the motion on the app? This looks like the same old story to me.

What about the main off button. While itís manual, does that turn off motion and the notifications properly?

So turning off record motion stops the app from logging the motion but I imagine the red lights on the doorbell still go on.
