Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

Rain X doesn’t really work as it only creates a hyperbolic surface for larger droplets. I tried it on the glass panel in my shower and dogs up straight away. As soon as the droplets get large enough that’s when the surface clears

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I have wired CCTV cams that are out in the open without protection above them and they are waterproof unlike Ring's weather-resistant and have simple covers over the lens. My Ring outdoor stick-up cam gets condensation in the morning. It has no protection from an overhang and is weather resistant.

My Ring floodlight doesn't have any problems either but it's under a deck. The same goes for my pro doorbell, under an overhang. 

I've checked many sites and products. Blink and Arlo cams have the same issues from what's in their own forums.

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

Whilst I accept other brands may have similar issues, that doesn't excuse Ring, as they profess to be selling a premium product, which it clearly isnt. I am an electronics engineer, so understand the issues faced when producing such a product for the outdoors, but to be brutally frank, this piece of kit simply isn't up to the job it was designed to do. My Ring 2 doorbell is placed in such a position that it gets no rain, snow, wind or other extremes of weather, even frost, yet it still underperforms to the point that it is useless at night.

 

I have tried many "remedies" as shown on here and based on my experiences elsewhere, and none of them make much difference. It's just poorly designed, and they ought to hang their heads in shame!

Re: Cold weather

I have the same problem in England I've been in touch with ring they have no resolution to this problem they have told me and other people to try different products but none work. This has been happening for years on other forums they have not done anything to resolve this. They don't care as long as people are buying the ring doorbell

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

Really cold weather can be give through air conditioner. It is not natural and manmade. We can maintain our temperature through ac. Many things are need to be store in cold weather. I also using ac in my house .But sometimes need to be ac repair otherwise would be ac problem.
