I use one of your NVR systems at my second home which is a ranch in Central Oregon. I have 7 cameras which are located in and around the main house and an 8th camera which is located on a barm about 200 yards away from the house. The barn camera transmits its signal via an indoor/outdoor nano wireless bridge.
On 2 different occasions I seem to have lost contact with the barn camera (screen goes black – it’s a 1.3 MP bullet). The screen goes black for a couple of days and then seems to come on again. This is wonderful, since I monitor the system from NJ and it saves me a trip all the way to OR. However, if only I knew what is happening and how to prevent this in the future…
On both occasions the weather took a dramatic turn (became colder) and there was some snow. However, the camera is protected and cannot get wet. Also – why would only one ‘go black’ while the other ones remain operational ? Different thought : how sensitive are the nano stations to the cold or the weather ?
This could be from the cold as you say. All the equipment does have an operational range temperature. 14 -122 degrees F is the camera -22 – 176 degrees F is the nanaostation. Likely it is the camera being too cold. When this happens you need to see if you can log into the nano station. If you can try camera next.
