Ring is updating its official Always Home app with Smart Alerts and other new features to help make your home security that much better. If you're running a Ring camera, like the cameras in the $199 Ring Alarm security system, then you will be excited to know the cameras are getting upgraded without you doing a thing.
Smart Alerts will use your Ring Protect Plan and cloud-based video analysis to deliver only the notifications that matter most to you. This will actually save power on any battery-powered cameras like the Ring Spotlight Cam and improve motion detection by reducing false alerts. The specific examples, which will start rolling out to the Ring app in early 2019, include Motion Verification to rule out false alerts, Motion Stop to halt cameras when the motion is unimportant, Person Detection so the motion detection won't follow people when it doesn't need to, and Motion Zones so they can focus on specific areas.
One of the other features includes Camera Previews, which will consolidate the recent images from all of your Ring cameras in one place. You'll be able to look through the photos, tap the preview, and go to a live view right away. The Timeline feature will give you a look at Ring's event history and let you know what happened and when.
