3D Motion Detection, only available with Video Doorbell Pro 2, Floodlight Cam Wired Pro and Spotlight Cam Pro, uses radar to detect distance of an object providing more precise motion detection over camera vision detection, reducing false alerts, and allows pinpoint customization of detection areas.

Camera Motion Zones and Bird's Eye Zones provide additional customization to trigger video recording only when someone steps into your defined motion zones. The radar that powers 3D Motion Detection also has additional benefits such as:

  • Provides accurate motion detection in dark or low light conditions
  • Decreases unnecessary alerts while still providing timely notifications
  • Powering Bird's Eye View

Bird's Eye View provides an aerial map view of motion events around your home, so you can clearly see the path that visitors take when visiting your property.

You may need to download the latest version of the Ring app and update the operating system on your mobile device to get this feature.

Frequently asked questions

What is Bird's Eye View?
Bird's Eye View shows the path of visitors on an aerial map view for motion events recorded by your camera.

Powered by radar technology, Bird's Eye View shows each person's position as a series of dots on the map you defined during 3D Motion Detection setup. For example, Bird's Eye View will show you the current location of a delivery person dropping off a package, as well as the path they took to get there (even if they've already left the camera's field of view by the time you start the live stream).

Bird's Eye View is available with Video Doorbell Pro 2, Floodlight Cam Wired Pro, Spotlight Cam Pro and Stick Up Cam Pro.

How do I get Bird's Eye View set up?
After setting up 3D Motion Detection, Bird's Eye View will be automatically enabled for that device on your account, and the accounts of any Shared Users who have access to that device. You may need to download the latest version of the Ring app and update the operating system on your mobile device to get this feature.

Where can I access the Bird's Eye View in the Ring app?
Bird's Eye View can be seen as a picture-in-picture image in Live View and Event Timeline.

What are the dots on the Bird's Eye View and why are they different colors?
Yellow dots in Bird's Eye View the current path of your visitor. As each dot gets older, it will gradually grow redder and more transparent before disappearing fully after a few seconds. Yellow dots appear in both live streams as well as in motion recordings on the Event Timeline.

Gray dots only appear in live steams, and show where activity was detected before you answered the alert on your phone or tablet. The most recent dot is white, and the entire trail quickly fades away after you've entered the Live Stream. For instance, if you open a motion alert after 10 seconds, these gray dots will show where activity was detected for that time before you began live streaming.

Can I hide Bird's Eye View when I'm watching a live stream or a recording?
Yes, just tap the X in the lower-left corner of the Bird's Eye View picture-in-picture window.
