    An old Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I. The previous night there was no sign of a spider.

    Yes I have a few of those and absolute spider magnets. But on the newer Dahua bullet style, you can pull the sun sheild all the way back and I think it helps. I am having better luck on the 1831 having done this.

    The other problem with bullets, they can be moved fairly easy. The pic with the kid telling us that we are number 2 was the original position, the next pic was just after they moved it. Needless to say, the cops where already called for this makeshift car show that popped up out of no where behind one of our customer's warehouses.

    These are budget UniView bullets that the customer installed and thought they would be amazing because the box said they were 4MP.

    Yes, there is that too. My dad has several Hik 2032s and sometimes over a few months of wind storms their mounts will loosen a bit and the camera will sag to point at the ground.

    Every other day I have to walk around with a broom and brush away spider webs. That’s why I’m transitioning to turrets as budget allows. My bullets are HDCVI units and I’m going IP in their place.

    Same here.

    I have four bullet HIK's and I'm constantly destroying their webs with my custom "spider-web-removal-broom'".

    At first, I said the spiders were stupid because I destroy their webs every other day. Then I realized that I'm the dummy. Mainly because I now think they create webs just for the entertainment value.

    P.S. I have a similar fight with robin nests under my deck above the patio!

    I see spiders on mine all the time but never had one build a web over it. It's a cheap Chinese knockoff of a Grandstream, maybe that's why.
