It is important to note that this is not always necessary, especially if you are using a wide-angle dome camera.


  1. Problems that need attention when installing surveillance cameras outdoors

Check if the camera is waterproof

If the security camera is installed outdoors, make sure it is waterproof, weatherproof, moisture-resistant, high temperature and severe cold.

Avoid backlight and lens flare

When there is a very bright light that causes the material to be lost, a backlight is produced, which results in the image being very pale, almost white.

The backlight can be produced by any bright light (such as the sun, security lights or street lights).

The reflection of the sun or other light can cause lens flare, which can cause circles or dots on the safety lens.

Make sure to face the security camera to direct sunlight, so as not to cause a bad security lens.
