Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

Interesting I have two. One on front and one on back. Back one is hard wired and doesnt most over. Front one runs on battery and mists over. I’m assuming when hard wired the leds remain on and give enough heat to keep it most free

Disappointing , first night of use and I can’t see a thing due to it misting over. Will try some washing up liquid on it tomorrow.

I tried it but if it gets frosty and below zero degrees, the washing up liquid doesn't work

Re: Ring doorbell misting over in cold weather

Hi everyone, just to add to this thread. I also have a ring doorbell and we are located in the Cambridgeshire area and are also having an issue with the doorbell steaming up/fogging over.
While I understand the science of condensation what I don't understand is how such an expensive device has not accounted for it. Perhaps the battery design is a flaw and as per the Google Nest Hello it should be mains wired as well.
I will be taking my Ring Pro down this weekend and installing the Nest Hello to see if that is any better.
I will have to look into the warranty situation regarding my Nest Doorbell because it dont feel it is fit for purpose.
