How ColorX Technology Turn Night into Day
Reolink App v4.41 Released
On an adobe style house, there is no attic or eaves for running cables. So I ran outdoor rated CAT-5e over the roof and mounted them on the wall (cinder block). No way to protect the connectors unless I mount an electrical box next to them. I design electronics for a living, so I am familiar with the IP ratings (I have done many IP-67 tests), which is also why I was questing the construction when I setup them up. I was actually thinking about sealing off the seams with marine grade heat shrink tubing, but didn't want to do it right away since I didn't know if the cameras would work for me and it could affect my ability to return.The little soft seal on the ethernet cable may pa*s a IP-66 test once or twice, but after 1 year of Arizona sun it will be worthless.Too bad, the cameras are working well, but only the one camera that is protected from direct exposure from rain survived. Tomorrow happens to be my last day to return on Amazon, so I should probably just return them.
Sorry, don't see how to go back and correct my word-swap. I meant to say:Am I under a wrong a*sumption thinking these cameras are waterproof ?
I bought 4 RLC-410-5MP cameras 3 months ago and they worked very well until the first rain last week (located in Phoenix, so it does not rain that often).The rain caused 3-out-of-4 cameras to perform a factory reset. I resetup 2 of the cameras, but next day they where reset again. I a*sume it is a factory reset since the pa*sword is blank and the configuration has reverted to default. I am under a wrong a*sumption that these cameras are waterproof ?When I installed them I was a little suspicious about the construction of the reset b**ton, it does not really look weatherproof, but since I didn't notice any special instruction I just installed them as directed while making sure that the reset b**ton was hanging straight down.Is this a common issue?
