"So you can get notified about activity in your front garden, not the pavement.

"If your radar-enabled device detects motion in a Bird's Eye Zone and also in one of your camera's motion zones, a motion event will be triggered.

"If a motion isn't detected by both views, the motion will be ignored, so that you get the notifications that matter the most to you."

You can use Bird's Eye Zones on the following Ring devices: Video Doorbell Pro 2, Floodlight Cam Wired Pro, and Spotlight Cam Pro.
