condensation issues

For some time now there is so much condensation on the camera (not sure if inside or outside case) that any video occuring early in the day is useless.  Is there a way to eliminate the condensation? 

This doorbell is installed at a vacation rental house so it is not practical to wipe the unit down every morning.

Hey @summerlily9  and @rwoodlin !  While we don't have any suggestions for a particular brand, we have heard neighbors using rain x helped keep their lens from fogging. Hopefully others might share some more recommendations of solutions that have worked for them. Smiley Happy

Any anti-fog application should work. Rain X is one brand name that many use.

They use it on car windshields and it lasts a few months. But that's with wipers and rain directly on it. A security cam I would think should last even longer. I'm sure there are a few on Amazon with reviews. I good search should fine the best on there.

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I have just purchased a Ring 2. Now it's getting cold at night and I too have condensation on the lens. I was thinking about using RainX but was not sure if it would affect the plastic cover of the lens, so I ' lightly ' applied it anyway this morning. Will find out tomorrow morning if it worked or if I need to apply it again.
