The battery-powered Motion Sensor extends the range of your Ring of Security. It connects to your Ring lights, doorbells and cameras via the Ring Bridge (sold separately) to activate connected devices whenever motion is detected. The Ring Bridge also unlocks smart controls in the Ring App and lets you receive motion-activated notifications and adjust settings right from your phone or tablet. To set up your Motion Sensors, simply place them outside near entryways and connect them to your Ring devices and the Ring App via the Ring Bridge. When your Motion Sensors detect motion, it can activate connected lights, doorbells, cameras and more.

The sensor on this device is very dependable. I will definitely recommend.
Because it is not possible to set security cameras to not detect and alarm on bugs and flying objects at night that are attracted to the infrared night vision I use these as the notification device that there is movement. (I know there are those experts that say you just need to know how to setup the motion sensors but I have wasted too may hours trying) I turn off the camera alarm notification at night because of bugs and use the Ring motion sensor to notify me of movement or persons in the view of the camera. Using these I can set the sensitivity on the cameras to better detect and record humans and most size animals. I live in rural Texas and have 14 high dollar security cameras and sleep much better using these rather than the camera notification at night.
Great question! Yes, the Ring Motion Sensor can be placed on a brick surface. Here are step-by-step instructions for doing so:
Slide the base down to remove it from your Motion Sensor.
If installing on a masonry surface, use the mounting plate as a template to mark pilot holes.
Then drill the holes and insert the anchors.
Hold the base firmly against the surface and drive in the two mounting screws.
Slide the motion sensor back onto its base until it clicks into place.

Great question! The useful range between your Bridge and other Ring Smart Lighting products depends on the number of obstructions between them, and the materials they’re made of. The RF signal has a greater range than wifi, but you may have to experiment with your devices to find an optimal position.

Yes, all Ring security cameras use IR (infrared) lighting for night vision. Certain models of Ring devices have a night vision feature that allows you to see through the camera in low light conditions. By using infrared light, the camera can create a black and white image that is then beamed to the Live View in your app. By turning the color night vision feature on, the camera will use whatever ambient light is available to try and create a "false color" image in your Live View. This lets you get a better sense of what's happening in the image by creating a false sense of color depth.
