Same. Started recently, even though I've had my camera nearly a year. Red orb. Very random patterns. Daytime too, not just night. Must be a glitch since it started happening to other people at roughly the same time, but definitely weird

We sprayed the doorbell with raid and that night the doorbell went off 5 times and has not gone off since. Whatever it was appears to be gone.

Re: Orbs floating by doorbell cam

I am so glad I found this! I had those weird orange orbs floating from under bushes in my back yard flood light ring and I was afraid I had ghosts or aliens. It is the first time 3/9 but it happened about 5 times.

The furthest back I can find the Orb is February 11, 2020. It's just one each time. If it was a light shining from the street, then it would not be visible when it gets to the shrub or porch column. Never been a "believer" in Orbs but a bit creeped out by this activity and can't seem to find a logical answer or cure.

Re: Orbs floating by doorbell cam

Hi neighbors! Thank you for sharing your images and video examples of these concerns. After viewing and bringing them to the attention of our teams here, it looks like these are bugs. Not a technical bug, but an actual insect. 

 

When insects appear on a lens they will often look circular, lacking color and details. They will usually move in a unique or unpredictable pattern, rather than in a straight line. This might happen more often with the weather warming up in some areas, or in entry ways with lights.

Re: Orbs floating by doorbell cam

I disagree.  When this started it was late January and February in the Midwest.  The temps were around -5F, so I sincerely doubt any insects or bugs would be outside on my doorbell camera.
