Cameras frequently cite super low-temperature specs, with -30° or even -40° common. But to see how popular dome models actually handle real world winter conditions, we tested six common models from Axis and Hikvision during two weeks of January weather, as low as 0° F, with snow, sleet, and rain.
Weather During Testing
During a week of testing, daytime highs averaged below 20° F, with nighttime lows as low as 1°F/-18°C, and in single digits for 4 of 7 days:
During testing we also received several inches of snow, as well as sleet and ice, which collected on top of the cameras.
