    In checking the specs on most of the cameras they list relative humidity as needing to be below 90%. Often the relative humidity here is above that and for extended periods of time. Does anyone have experience with them in high humidity environments?

    In the summer we're at 90+ on the temps and 90+ on the humidity.

    I live in Houston Texas, temps over 90 and relative humidity over 90. I have 4 dahua cameras outside for over a 8 months. No problems so far. Note all cameras are mounted underneath the over hangs. Very little direct sun or direct rain.

    I think the Dahua bullets will do just fine.... Couldnt say about other brands...

    I have had my Dahua PTZ's outside for a long time in some very humid conditions with no issues.
    But..a different brand PTZ cam gave me trouble on one hot humid day and would not clear up.
