I’m ordering a couple of these clear plastic domes to try. Looks like a simple and relatively secure solution!

 


#22

Couldn’t you use a power extender cable like this: http://a.co/7viiNMX to plug the camera into an exterior outlet?

Do you have the exact specs on the housing that you used?

#24

Please note, they have a clear cover and a frosted cover. Make sure you get the clear cover.


#25

Won’t they fog up when it gets below ambient temperature?


#26

Did anyone end up trying one of the dome solutions? I’m very interested to know if any worked out.


#27

I have not tried the dome suggestion


#28

Where can I get a outdoor cover for the PTZ camera?? Any options are appreciated.


#29

So, I’ve sealed up the unit with tape and painted it to seal the seams. Going on two weeks now in 98+ degree weather (it’s in the shade) and a few rain storms. Still going strong.


#30

Might it be a good idea to seal a silica gel packet in there?


#31

This is genius and a nearly perfect inexpensive solution. I will be trying it soon and will report if any issues. Thank you for posting.


#32

Has anyone tried spaying the Electrical Box or the Camera Housing (after carefully covering all the important areas with Painters Tape) clear Flex Seal or Rust-Oleum Leak Seal even Flex Tape might be an option.


#33

That’s precisely what I did.

I was thinking about using a Coleman R214D046C Lantern Globe with “end caps” the clear glass is pyrex (not plastic) so it might last longer without fading in the sun.

I wonder what the reflectivity of the Pyrex glass is because you don’t want to have too much IR glare.
