Outdoor Security Cameras

Outdoor security cameras are housed in special weatherproof enclosures or housings that protect them from tough weather and temperature conditions such as rain, snow, wind and the sun. Some enclosures utilize electric strip heaters and fans. The strip heaters help keep the humidity down for the electronics, prevent condensation from forming on the housing cover and camera lens, and provide heat in cold environments.

Other security cameras meant to be placed in high-crime or high-vandalism areas feature tough “armored” enclosures that can withstand heavy blows.
