I live in the mountains and I regularly see people near me posting wonderfully clear night images of wildlife (bears, mountain lions, etc.) on NextDoor, facebook, etc. The other night I had a bear walk right through the camera’s sweet spot and all my battery operated outdoor night camera captured was blurry pixelated shadows which were unrecognizable as a bear (we found the bear laying near the camera in the morning).
I measured 156Mbps download and 164Mbps upload internet speed standing right below the camera location using SpeetTest on my phone so my internet connection is not the problem (Device Health on the Ring app shows RSSI - 56).
I’m wondering if poor night vision is specific to battery operated outdoor Ring cams, or if I might have a defective camera (i.e. could the infrared light source be bad?).
