    Hello,

    without a doubt i guess that here has to be someone who uses their cameras in conditions or. lets say temparatures under -10°C. What happens with electronics in and cameras itself when temperature drops under -15°C, -20°C? Any experiences?

    The working environment of our cameras is
    Working Environment -10°C~+55°C (14°F~131°F), Humidity: 10%~90%
    So it’s easily to get the camera broken to use it in the environment which is not in the range.

    I do, so far it hasnt broken, but it will ‘stick’ when trying to focus. to get around that I use the trick of setting the camera movement to 1 in ptz, then hitting zoom ot or in, just tapping it, then when it gets to about the right focus , I mve the camera 1 pixel in some direction which stops the auto focus where it is, hopefully in focus…..then I leave it the way it is until a warmer time of day. ‘if’ someone wanted to get fancy I imagine you could take a heating coil, like the kin d they use in electric blankets and warm the unit up whenever you wanted, even running it off of the poe line, but well, I do not see the need to ‘yet’. it would be cool if they actually implemented a type of sleeve/cover for the camera with that built in though. but it does get down to -20 here, there are a lot of areas that get lower, so not sure how it works there.
