Arizona Sun And Heat Causing Frequent Failure On IP Cameras, Any Solutions?

Hello all,

I have a customer with an opportunity in Arizona. A local contractor mentioned they had to return Hikvision cameras fairly frequently due to failure.

The current install has cameras (vandal domes) mounted to the wall directly around a building with no shade.

I suggested considering sun shades of some sort for the cameras to help limit exposure.

I was told that ambient air temperature isn't the same as an object sitting directly in the sun. The camera itself could be 20+% hotter than ambient air temps.

In Arizona this could mean an air temp of 120 degrees F and the camera could get as hot as 140-145 degrees.

This is outside the spec of most cameras I am familiar with.

Just curious if you have experience with installing cameras in hot/sunny environments and what your solutions are for high heat.
