Urging millions of Ring doorbell owners to check out the ingenious “fence setting.”

YOUR Ring Doorbell has a really handy feature that will make your life a lot more peaceful.

It is linked to motion detection and prevents it from being “overactive”.

Amazon has included a special feature called Geofence for Ring Doorbells.

“A geofence is a virtual perimeter, or invisible boundary around a specific geographic location,” explains Amazon.

“If you configure a geofence in the Ring app, the Ring app can remind you to set your mode to Away when you leave the geofence.

“When you get home and re-enter the geofence, your Ring app can automatically turn off alarms from your security cameras and doorbells.”

The idea is that you might not need motion detection alerts at home.

This does not prevent the doorbell from ringing when someone presses it.

But it will prevent it from constantly going off while you are at home.

And then you can turn notifications back on when you’re out of the house.

It takes your iPhone or Android’s location and maps it to a geofence you’ve created in the Ring app.

Of course, there are downsides to having Geofence on.

You will not receive notifications if someone is on your property while you are sleeping.

So it’s worth turning the alerts back on overnight if that’s an issue.

How to enable Ring Geofence

Go into your Ring app and then go into the menu by tapping the three lines in the corner.

Now tap on Settings and then go to Geofence.

You can then adjust the position of the geofence to suit your needs.

Now tap Confirm and set up Auto-Snooze.

“Auto-Snooze is a feature designed to help you prevent motion-triggered alerts right after you enter your geofence,” explains Amazon.

“For example, you might not want your phone to buzz with a Ring motion alert when you walk over to your own Ring Video Doorbell.”

Then you can choose which devices you want to turn off notifications for.

You can also set a snooze duration.

“Compatible Ring devices that snooze when you re-enter your geofence area will not send alerts to that specific mobile device while in snooze mode,” Amazon said.

“However, you will continue to record if you have a Ring Protect plan, and other (non-deferred) compatible Ring devices will continue to send notifications.”

Now tap Next and then check the arm/disarm reminders.

These will alert you to change your mode when entering or exiting the geofence.

You can also set a specific sound to play when one of these reminders is sent.

Now tap Next and then Finish and save.

You’ll then need to give the Ring app permission to access your phone’s location when the app isn’t actively being used.
