    IPC-HFW4431R-Z rj45 connector toast, water ingress...

    Camera quit working a few days ago, finally got around to checking it out this afternoon. Found the connector all black inside, some water came out (more like mud), so obviously the weather "proof" connector did a great job of letting water in somewhere, and of course not letting it out. Using...

    Cold-testing cameras...

    Temp here has been down to -39, all my Dahua cameras have been working fine exposed to the cold. Did have one Foscam require a re-boot after the really cold temp in an unheated shed, but it is working again now too.

    IPC-HFW5231E-Z as weather cam (very exposed location)

    This cam seems like a good contender to replace the Foscam Fi9804W I have been using for a few years. maybe the bullet style is better than the turret as well for weather-proofing? Looking for really good low light characteristics, but not really a security oriented installation. The camera will...

    Thinking of replacing wireless IP webcam (FI9804w)

    I have one of the Foscam 9804 cameras that has been working for around 4 years, and still works well but starting to show it's age. It's installed in an area that is fully exposed to weather, sun, heat etc. After some precip, the camera lens appears to get hazed over by condensation; likely...

    recommendation: outdoor ip poe for small area...

    looking for a small ip camera for inside the doghouse, outdoor/weatherproof capable likely good idea. Since inside an inclosure it should have IR illumination unless very sensitive (but might want night time video anyway). Looking at Dahua IPC-HFW1320 on e-bay, but might not focus well for such...
