Stop Condensation in Camera Housings

As we enter Autumn, your outdoor security cameras get quite cold and have moisture form on them over night.

[easyazon-image-link asin=”B003DKQB02″ alt=”Uline Silica Gel Desiccants 2-3/4 x 3 Inches – 25 Silica Gel Packets of 10 Grams Each” src=”” align=”right” width=”160″ height=”160″]In the morning as the sun rises, there is a rapid temperature change inside the camera which causes condensation to occur inside the camera housing.

To help prevent this put a bag of silica gel inside the camera housing but make sure you cable tie it into place or you will find over time it slips down the housing and into the view of the lens.

You can get silica gel from Amazon for around $10 per 20 bags.

    Great tip! I’m going to do that for my outdoor cameras. It gets very humid where I live in Texas.
