Outdoor IP camera's vs. cold winters.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've been told that IP camera's can be quite flaky in cold weather. Just wondering if anyone out there (either integrator or customer) has experience with IP camera's being used in up to -30c weather. I'm an integrator that installs primarily HAI automation systems and I've been using their analog camera server so far. I would imagine IP camera's to be a better solution for my clients looking for 1080p quality resolution.

Cheers,

Ryan

I hope your clients aren't cheapskates--that example retails for around $3150 USD. biggrin.gif

I have similar to above but the high end axis Q6035-E PTZ full hd ip cameras & they have thus far perform flawlessly in cold or hot weather, but for optimum night vewing @ high frame rate/ exposure time & focus these full-HD cameras require Qulity IR illuminators such as these.. Beam angle can be up to 90 degree

I have 3 outdoor cameras for my home security system. Foscam FI8904WWansview NCH532MW,Gigaeye GB170,It seems that they all survived in the hurricane and extreme cold. The cheapest one is Gigaeye GB170,only $79.99 on Amazon.



Here is the snapshot for my camera " src="http://files.avsforum.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" />
