#3: Turn down the sensitivity level

So, you’re getting false alarms…

But this could be an animal or a car passing your house. 

Well, one quick way to prevent that from happening is to adjust your Eufy doorbell’s sensitivity level.

You see, the higher the sensitivity level, the more motion it detects. 

No worries. Here’s how to easily adjust and lower the sensitivity level of your Eufy doorbell:

  1. Open your smartphone.
  2. Go to eufySecurity App.
  3. Select the Devices Tab.
  4. Choose the Camera Settings.
  5. Tap the Motion Detection.
  6. Go to Sensor Sensitivity and turn down the sensitivity level.

Note: The highest sensitivity level is 7, while the lowest is 1. Also, try to change All Motions setting to Human Only setting. With this, your camera will only detect people.


You can set your sensitivity level to “Face Only” setting:

  1. Open your smartphone.
  2. Go to eufySecurity App.
  3. Choose the Devices Tab.
  4. Tap the Camera Settings.
  5. Select Motion Detection.
  6. Tap to Activity zone and select disable.
  7. Select Face Only.

This will likely reduce the number of false alarms you get.

#4: Set an ignored zone

If you don’t want to disable the Activity Zone of your Eufy doorbell camera…

You can set an ignored zone through the following steps:

  1. Open your smartphone.
  2. Go to eufySecurity App.
  3. Choose the Devices Tab.
  4. Tap the Camera Settings.
  5. Select Motion Detection.
  6. Tap to Activity zone and set up Ignored zone

The blue zone is the activity zone, while the red zone is the ignored zone.

#5: Unplug the home base chime

Unplug The Home Base Chime

There might be something that’s activating the doorbell…

That’s why it’s repeatedly ringing.

To fix this, try unplugging the indoor chime. Then, leave it unplugged for a few hours. After that, plug it back in.

If it doesn’t stop the ringing, the issue could be from:

  • Short circuit in your wiring.
  • Wiring that caught moisture.

With this, you may contact Eufy customer support or an electrician.

They’ll check your doorbell and see if it needs repair or replacement.
