What Is The Best Solution For Housing In The Desert (Sahara)

what is the best solution for housing in the desert (Sahara) with temperatures reaching 50 ° day and night -5 °, without forgetting the sandstorm.

Hi Julien

I have used Videotec Verso polycarbonate housings extensively in the Middle East where the temperatures regularly exceed 50C. The polycarbonate stays cooler than any metal housings and the housing has a large fan unit with filter to keep the air moving and improve heat dissipation. They also have a built in heater to deal with the low temperatures at night.

Getting cameras that are rated to 50C is just as important as the housing itself.
