Ring Doorbell motion event


#1

I got a Ring doorbell for my front door, which, according to the documentation, can fire an event when motion is detected. I’d like to use that event to turn on lights on the porch.

What I’m wondering is, will the event still fire if I disable motion events in my Ring phone app. I don’t really want those notifications, but I do want HA to get triggered by them. Does anyone know if the events are independent of the app setting?

I’m asking, because the other parameters of the motion trigger are set by the app, and I’m not home atm to experiment with it.

The settings on your phone’s app will not stop HA from getting motion events.
I have my motion alerts disabled on my phone, but they still trigger in HA.
