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.
