Rain can ruin surveillance video, and your housing choice might be making it worse.
In this test, we shot out the five most common form factors of outdoor housing: box, full size dome, minidome, full size bullet, and compact bullet. We placed them at about 12' against the side of a building to simulate real mounting locations and observed them over the course of a 3+ hour rain storm.
We look at these key questions:
- Which housing performed worst in these conditions?
- Which shed water the best?
- What can I do to improve existing housing performance?
