Does Ring actually state the current firmware version anywhere? Seems like a smart, useful, pretty common sense and standard thing for a software company to do, but I can't find it anywhere. I have one spotlight camera "Up To Date" and a Ring Doorbell Pro that previously worked just fine but is now having issues, which is on 2.1.01005. So I have NO clue what firmware my spotlight camera is on, and NO clue what version my doorbell SHOULD be on. Seems pretty rediculous to me, and such an easy fix... publish current firmware version numbers and display what the "Up To Date" firmware version is along side the "Up To Date" status. You'd think they'd have this easy stuff figured out by now...

One of my wired Spotlight CAMs recently had water enter the camera after fairly heavy rain with high winds. The water condensed on the inside, in front of the lense. I brought the camera inside and attempted to dry it out by intermitently heating it with a blow dryer. I was able to get some of the water out, but, after working on it for over a week, it still has some water that shows up as droplets inside on the bottom sensor. I have not had it condense in front of the lense again. I chatted with Ring support and they gave me a 50% discount code to replace the camera, which I have done. They said that the water most likely entered through the bottom. I installed the old camera at my daughter's home and it has been working fine. It still does have some droplets inside the bottom. We are starting to see winter weather and I will be monitoring the old camera. I recommend getting a cover for the camera. They are $11.95 on Amazon. I put one on the replacement camera and also sealed it with silicone caulk around the bottom.
