Hi,

 

I live in MN and it is possible to get to -20F and lower in the winter.  I'm looking at this system:

and the cameras that come with it:

The specs say to 15F.  Two questions:

 

1)  Anybody try using these at lower temperature?  My analog dome camera works fine through the winter.

2)  Are these dome cameras suitable for both wall and ceiling mount?

 

Thanks!

Hello, 

 

I have not hear anybody trying to use this under those temperatures. The working environment of these cameras are -10°C~+60°C (14 F ~ 140 F) so I will not recommend to use it on a lower environment. 

 

Thank s

Technically, Jesus is correct about the operating temperatures, however we have sold thousands of cameras to customers in the Northern half of the USA and in Canada and we have not heard of any issues with them operating during the winter. If you purchase IR LED cameras, they will keep the camera warmer at night when the LEDs turn on which is when the cameras will experience the coldest temperature. I do not think you will have any issue. I would recommend you consider the bullet versions of the same camera rather than the dome version because it is built with a thicker metal case and is better suited for outdoor conditions.
