Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I've used the anti fog like ring have told me doesn't work. I cannot wipe it if away. They have know about this problem for years and not done anything about it. Another person from ring said yes that's what happens when tempture drops. They don't tell you this when you read about the product. This is not fit for purpuse.

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I agree Summerlily9.When the Temps drop and there's moisture in the air the cameras are going to fog over and so far as I know,there's no fix for the problem.

I tried the rubbing washing up liquid, was ok until last night when the temperature went below zero. It fogged up and loads of condensation. They definitely have a problem.

I’ve just got home and my Ring is the same, all rigged up and can’t view anything. I only purchased on Wednesday....About as useful as a chocolate radiator currently!

Adam1991,Same here.Moisture during cold weather and this is going to happen.Other then wiping the lens,I dont think any8can be done.So that means they're useless during cold weather.

I think the only thing that would fix it is if it had a small heat source inside. But if battery powered it would definitely drain faster..

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

I think it's bad they are selling a product which doesn't work in winter. We had a problem when we was away with three people I think as couldn't see as misted over with a ladder and climb over the fence in the front into our back garden when we was away not nice when you need to see what's happening and you cannot see much
