Has anyone installed a ptz camera in the outdoor enclosure without
fan blower/heater? I live in California where the temperature range
is between 40 and 90 degree so I doubt I really need a fan or heater.
Do you see any issues without it?

We have an Axis 213ptz outside with no heater/blower and it gets below freezing and up to 100 degrees here, and it hasn't failed yet. So you shouldn't have any problems.

Does your dome enclosure get foggy when raining or get really cold? Just curious, when enclosure do you use?

Typo here. I meant to say "what enclosure do you use". Smile

I use a extreamly cheap enclosure for a ptz which actually is for indoor use. I haven't had any problems with temperatures down to -20C in Germany here during winter. Summer will still show how good it really is. Smile

I would think that the equipment would suffer more from the freeze/thaw cycles that occur each day. The blower would disperse any humidity that condenses inside the housing, and the heater would 'dry out' the air contained within. Humidity isn't just on the outer surface or glass/plastic areas, it is throughout the entire workings of the camera and is a CCD plate 'Killer'. If you have foggy images, this is the cause of them.

In my houses i have the power supply for the cam put, the heat from the powersupply keep the houses dry and fine inside. In januar this year, i have one of the houses put down for service and when i open the house, every thing look like brand new, and the house have been up for over two years now. I live about two km from the nordsea, and the camhouses get a lots of salt from the ocean but no foggy images, clear like brand new.
