You need a communication link between your alarm system and monitoring service in order for them to know when there's an alarm that they need to respond to.

Naturally, you want a communication link that's highly reliable, even during bad weather or power outages. You also want a link that is  resistant to physical attacks so an intruder can't simply slash the phone line and leave your system cut off from the alarm. There are many methods to choose from,click here to find out which one is best for you

Weather Resistant Cameras

Weather can often be a challenging factor when trying to maintain a security system. As most of us know, the Midwest can have some harsh weather, including rain, high winds, and snow. Clinton recently came out with a camera that can withstand weather conditions better than most other cameras. We have been in business over 37 years and have options to fit all of your individual security needs.

The industry standard weather rating is IP66 which means that the camera can be sprayed with water. However, remember your IP66 rating is only as good as how well you have sealed the camera with caulk or RTV. This leaves room for error and the potential for water to enter the camera. Once water enters the housing, the camera is damaged beyond repair and most manufacturers will not honor their warranty. If this happens, most manufactures will claim installer error! So why risk it?

We are so confident in our Vandal X Series, we actually encourage our customers to immerse them underwater to test out our IP68 weather rating for themselves. When you install a Clinton Vandal X dome camera, you will no longer have to worry about your installation in adverse weather conditions. No more caulk or RTV; just install the camera and walk away confidently.
