Weatherization

The All Sky Camera's interior is completely sealed from the elements and humidity, and contains a clay dessicant (DMF-free) to prevent fogging inside the glass dome.

The sturdy glass dome protects the camera from rain, snow, and moderate hail. Light snow and ice will be melted off by the camera's 1.5 watt internal power consumption. In cold climates during large snowfalls, it may be desirable to brush snow off of the camera to speed the melting process. In summertime, heat generated inside the dome by solar insolation is reduced by the reflective anodized aluminum surface, and removed by conduction through the aluminum housing.

In certain environments, the O ring seal may age and crack after some number of years. Replacement O rings are available for free and are included in the camera Bundles. O ring and dessicant replacement is also available as a complimentary factory service, you pay only for shipping charges.
