The cam was a Christmas gift in 2018 but was only occasionally plugged in until this summer when I started using it to patrol my back yard.
It was great until we took several quick successive power hits from (then) Tropical Storm Zeta. Lost a v2 and the PanCam. V2 came back after a reset. PanCam didn’t… power completely shot. Troubleshot with support, they assumed something was fried and told me that it wasn’t under warranty any longer. I decided to crack into it at that point… nothing to lose.
I feel like this should be replaced, not as a warranty issue, but almost as a recall. It’s an obvious design flaw which should be replaced by a slip ring.
I’ve already preordered a few v3 cams, but I’ll miss my pan for the back yard.
