Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I was away and the morning I wanted to view it it was steamed up as three people came in my front garden with ladder and climbed over the fence out front into back garden. But only could see outline as misted up. They told me to wipe it how can I if away. Or if in the middle of the night something happens and you cannot see. I've tried many things but do not work

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I have the fogging problem on cameras mounted in remote locations over grass (the ones mounted over concrete don’t have this problem). The same dew that forms on the grass also forms on the outside of the lens. I’ve tried an an anti-fog solution and it didn’t work. I tried Rain-X for plastic, and it just made the droplets a little larger. My next step will be to take a fish tank aerator pump which will be enclosed in an electrical box near the camera and run the plastic tubing to the camera. I will position the end of the tubing above the lens so air will blow down across the lens. The pump will be on a timer so it will only run at night. This should stop the dew from forming on the lens. I’ll report back after testing.

Looks like I'm not the only one having problems with fogging over during cold weather.I have a Ring door bell in front and a Security cam in back.The back camera is about 8ft off the ground.I need a refund during the winter.

Since I've rubbed some fairy liquid over the cover, it's not been that bad. It was cold last night and car windows were missed over but the camera looked ok. I suppose the fairy liquid adds a layer. Say I mentioned on a previous reply, it works on my glasses and they don't steam up.

Keep forgetting that this is a global community. Yes Fairy is sold in the UK. I would try any good quality washing up liquid.
