Well Ring is aware of the problem because I called yesterday. They said they have had several calls. However, the problem was not resolved by the associate. She said it would be passed on to the proper deptartment to fix the issue. We shouldn't have to unistalled and reinstall to fix the problem. Ring should be fixing the problem or sending a replacement camera....afterall we all JUST purchased these cameras. We have another stick up camera we bought in December and it hasn't had this problem. So obvisouly these cameras we all have are a newer version and can actually take a battery for a back up. You have to purchase the battery for it.
I'm getting the same low batery notice on all 3 of my WIRED stick up cams. All are mounted up high and require an extension ladder to access.
I will be returning my system if Ring's "fix" requires me to climb a ladder every time someting like this happens
I suspect this started occurring with the latest Ring app update. My Stick-Up Cam Wired is also just 2 weeks old and it was great until the app update a couple days ago. Sadly, that app update DID fix 2 issues I've had with Smart Lighting so it's been a mixed blessing.
Hopefully, Ring will get it all sorted out quickly and release another app update which fixes this "Low Battery" issue (especially since the camera has NO BATTERY because it's wired).
Greetings - I'm reposting my own post from another thread I started because it solved this problem and the other (no snapshot on gen-3 cams).
So, I have a 10-minute, non-adjustable snapshot feature as of today on my brand new Gen-3 Stick-Up Cam.
No idea what I did made it work or if there was a firmware update, but here were my steps:
- I reset the camera in my office (so it was super-close to the router).
- Using the Android app to set things up, I skipped the QR code scan and just chose to install it without scanning a code.
- I went through the process, "Rome wasn't built in a day..." yadda, yadda...
- But, when it got to the updating firmware screen in the app, I just let it sit there despite not seeing any lights at all on the device (the screen says to wait for the blue light to finish flashing and there's a skip button... I just let it sit).
- After around 7 minutes, the forced tutorial checklist came up on the app and I went through it all until complete.
- After that, I started seeing snapshots on the dashboard next to my other three cameras but instead of every 30s, it's every 10 minutes. Better than nothing.
Marly from Ring just said on this thread (as did another customer) that Gen-3 doesn't support snapshot. So they must've done something or I REALLY should go play the lottery tonight.
Also, while I did set the camera up on an Android phone, the snapshot is showing up on the iPad I use as a dedicated camera monitor.
As we all probably know by now (and if this works for you), this could all break tomorrow. The devs seem to dig toying with our emotions by giving and taking features from us.
Sigh. Good luck!
My "Low Battery" resolved itself around dinnertime tonight (~6 PM EDT). I did absolutely nothing to fix it but all of a sudden, my camera once again reported that it's power source was "Power Outlet" (instead of "Battery") and the Batter Level was "Unknown" (instead of "Low Battery") as it should as there is NO battery. Unsure of what happened but it's all working again including my Live View and motion detection.
