This would be useful as if it was available built-in to the camera you could monitor how your enclosure is running. The camera should also be able to notify you via email if the enclosure has failed and the camera's temperature is not within its boundaries.

I think there should be at least an overtemp alarm. One hot day late last summer my Sony rebooted for no apparent reason. I suspect it got way too hot in there.
So I installed an Oregon Scientific wireless temp sensor in the dome. Well the actual probe is in the dome, but the sender unit was outside. It reports back to my weather station how hot it is in the dome. It got over 140 degrees in there!
My dome is heated, but not cooled (them suckers are major $$$). I am not sure what I am going to do this summer about the heat issue. Any ideas?

Here is the sensor:

You could try rigging up some type of fan to the enclosure. Something that would blow outside air into the enclosure to get some air circulation. Also if you make it removable, you can take it out in the winter.

I'd need to filter the air as well. I had all kinds of bugs living in my dome the last time I opened it up in some fashion!
I was thinking about designing a way of using a peltier element. I have looked at off the shelf PC cooling solutions that uses peltiers and I think it wouldn't be too hard. The actual peltier would be outside and cold water would be piped inside to what looks almost exactly like a tiny car radiator with a fan attached.
Typically the radiator is on the hot side and the cold side against the CPU, but it should work in reverse. The hot side on my idea would be a large heatsink.
Maybe I should stay mum on this idea. I think it has potential (profit) Laughing
