In India, rain is everywhere. We are living in a country where rainy seasons is for 4 months approximately. As we all know that electronics items don’t like water mostly. So, your CCTV cameras don’t like. The big question is “how to protect the security cameras in the rainy seasons?”
It’s quite obvious that the cameras are unguarded to cumbrous damages like rain, thunder & lighting during monsoon in India. The rainwater might drip into the camera lens & destroy it. If your camera is placed on an elevated spot where lighting can easily reach, your camera might be damaged and/or destroyed due to the fire accident. A continuous soaking is not good for the cameras; it might damage in a short time. In short, the monsoon is the biggest problem for the cameras and that should be protected to keep them functioning well in every season.
Let’s move on “Protecting the CCTV cameras in rainy season”
Here protecting the cameras means choosing the right product for your home. Always go with the heavy-duty outside CCTV system that is marked as “Waterproof”. If not then you may get the problem in future, so be ready for it. Choosing the cheap camera for indoor can be allowed one but outdoor ones should be waterproof and can withstand against the drenching rain, thunder & other severe weather conditions.
Finding the Right Place:
A place is important more than choosing the right camera. If you choose a place where rain falls during the monsoon then there are very fewer chances of your camera will not damage. How to choose the right place? Just walk around your home while it’s raining and examine where water runs down the roofs, overflow funnels due to the construction. You should avoid such places to install a security system. If a rain-prone place may impact the line of sight; you should opt for two CCTV cameras to get a reliable coverage instead of choosing the one that functions occasionally. A CCTV camera installation company can help you find the right place and system as well.
Moreover, do not choose a metal to mount a camera which is an electrical conductor; it might invite the lighting and can destroy the system (due to short circuit). Check for the wirings and earthings carefully before monsoon starts; it will help you save your system and bucks.
