Outdoor WIFI Camera Suggestions

Recently picked up an Armcrest, it lasted all of 4 day before it quit entirely. During those four days it wouldn’t remain connected to my network for more then a few minutes before dropping off, rinse repeat. I’m in the process of of returning that camera for a refund and I’m looking for replacement suggestions.

Outdoor - Able to withstand cold Canadian winters, down to -40C
Night Vision
Live Stream
Motion Sensing
I’m not looking for anything grey market, I had enough of a time trying to get the above Armcrest returned.

Personally I like everything from https://www.ubnt.com/products/#unifivideo but -40ºc might be a bit to much?

Thanks, I’ll have a look at those.

-40 is the extreme, doesn’t often get that cold but we are can solidly bet we’ll reach -30 or below on occasion.

If it is a problem you can put a power resistor (5 or 10W, 47 Ohms, for 12V supply) inside the housing to keep it warm.

can you insulate it with like fiber glass? or will that cause problems with the radio? maybe not if it has an antenna. if you have a 3d printer make a box for it and insulate it with a hole for the antenna…maybe?
