How to Protect Your Outdoor CCTV Cameras

Outdoor CCTV cameras are exposed to changes in the weather which could end up damaging your security cameras. Weather conditions such as heat, rain, snow, or wind, can affect the proper functioning of your CCTV cameras, so you need ways to protect your devices from these elements.

Protecting your CCTV camera from the rain

If you have outdoor security cameras, they must be well protected from rainfall or harsh weather conditions. Here are some protective measures you can take;

  • Purchase a weather proof CCTV camera

When looking for security cameras to buy, ensure that you go for those that are water-resistant rated IP65 or IP66. The Ingress Protection Code (IP code) is a way of rating and classifying the degree of protection that electronic closures and mechanical casings provide from water, intrusion, and dust. The IP65 rating is suitable for outdoor use and provides protection against condensation, water spray, and low-pressure water jets from any direction. The IP66 rated cameras are better protected against water than the IP65 rated cameras and may cost a bit more. Check out more details on how to choose your outdoor CCTV cameras.

  • Purchase a weatherproof housing for your cameras

You could purchase weatherproof housing for your cameras separately. It basically protects the cameras by encasing them. You will need to ensure that the camera model you have can actually fit into protective housing. Box cameras and other popular brands typically fit easily into a housing. Any casing designed for the model of your camera will do the trick.

  • Simply install your outdoor camera in a protected place

You can just find a shielded place that has a covering to install your camera to protect it from the weather. It’s quite a simple solution but it could work if installed properly. When doing this, you need to ensure that its viewing angle is not obstructed.

Conclusion

Your security cameras can be affected by the weather and in extreme cases, even be destroyed so you need to protect them in every way that you can.
