How Do I Increase the Quality of My Ring 2 Video?

Are you frustrated with the quality of your Ring 2 video? If yes, then you’re not alone.

Many Ring 2 users struggle with poor video quality, which can be caused by several factors. However, there are several ways to increase the quality of your Ring 2 video. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to improve the clarity and resolution of your Ring 2 footage.

1. Check Your Wi-Fi Connection

The first thing you should do is check your Wi-Fi connection. A weak or spotty connection can cause buffering and poor video quality. To ensure a strong connection, make sure that your Ring 2 device is close enough to your router and that there are no obstructions between them.


  • Open the Ring app on your mobile device.
  • Select “Device Health” from the menu.
  • Check the Wi-Fi Signal Strength.
  • If it’s weak, try moving your router closer to your Ring 2 device or using a Wi-Fi extender.

2. Check Lighting Conditions

Another factor that can affect video quality is lighting conditions. Poor lighting can make it difficult for the camera to capture clear images and videos.

  • Make sure that there is sufficient lighting around your Ring 2 device.
  • If you’re recording at night, consider adding additional lights around the area.
  • Avoid placing the camera facing direct sunlight or bright light sources as it can cause glare and washout in image and video quality

3. Adjust Video Settings

Ring 2 offers several video settings that can affect the quality of your footage. You can adjust these settings to optimize the video quality according to your needs.

  • Open the Ring app on your mobile device.
  • Select “Device Settings” from the menu.
  • Select “Video Settings”.
  • Adjust the following settings as per requirement:
    • Video Quality: Set it to High to get better quality footage, but it will consume more data and storage space.
    • Livestreaming Quality: Set it to High for better streaming quality, but it will consume more bandwidth.
    • Motion Detection Zone: Adjust this setting to limit the motion detection area, which can reduce false notifications and save battery life without compromising the video quality

4. Clean Your Camera Lens

A dirty camera lens can also affect video quality. Make sure that your Ring 2 camera lens is clean and free of dust or debris.

  • Gently wipe the camera lens with a soft cloth or microfiber towel.
  • Avoid using abrasive materials that can scratch or damage the lens.
  • Clean the lens regularly for better video quality.

5. Upgrade Your Ring 2 Device

If none of these steps improve your video quality, consider upgrading your Ring 2 device. The latest Ring cameras come with advanced features such as HD video, better night vision, and improved motion detection capabilities.


  • If you upgrade to a newer version of Ring camera device, make sure to follow the setup instructions carefully and monitor the video quality to ensure it meets your expectations.


By following these steps, you can improve the quality of your Ring 2 video footage and get clearer, sharper images and videos. Make sure to check your Wi-Fi connection, lighting conditions, adjust the video settings, clean your camera lens regularly, and consider upgrading your device if necessary. With a little effort and attention to detail, you can enjoy high-quality Ring 2 videos that give you peace of mind.
