CleanView Claims to Solve Rain Surveillance Problems

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Jan 13, 2015

Raindrops collecting on domes can lead to big problems.

Not only can they interfere with video when it rains, they can leave behind residue film and collect dirt over time leading to persistent problems.

Digital Watchdog has announced 'CleanView' coatings free of charge on select models, which it claims "repels moisture, and  provides extreme protection against dust, grease, grime, oil stains and smudges."

However, how does this work, how long does it last, and will special handling be required? We examine CleanView in this note.
