hope this has changed from the last time I purchased?
« on: March 22, 2017, 06:10:28 PM »

"Airsight is BACK!  We have new models with improvements to hardware and software to make the best selling IP Cameras even BETTER!  These IP Cameras are durable, affordable and have all the features you would want in an IP Camera.  They are the best IP Cameras on the market, let alone this price point!"

I hope this includes the Airsight; XX70A Airsight Pan Tilt ZOOM IP WiFi Indoor/Outdoor IP Camera

as I bought this Camera December 2015 and by December 2016 it was dead..

I have Summers that hit 130 degrees f outside and the inside atic hits 150 degrees f..

the camera was dead in a year. I'm attributing this to heat, I just order another one and a xx52aa which went dead after I couldn't get in it because the stupid firmware update screwed my password.

I hope you guys take care of this better, the customer service was great with the people in Florida, trying to help me out last time, but your Texas Technicians Suck..

Since this is a User to User Forum.
I am not too sure how much Authinx {present X10 Owners} participate here.

The specifications page for the XX70A says operating temperature is 14 degrees F to 131 degrees F.
20% to 80% non condensing humidity.

High temperatures like that are real tough on electrolytic capacitors.  It could shorten the life to just a few thousand hours.

We (I work thermal analysis) typically assume 130F only exists in the middle east and only for a short period of the day.  There are other areas that get hot, but we assume closer to 120F.  That said, the data is for air temperature so in the shade on a 130F day would be sweltering in the sun.  You must be in Yuma or Alice Springs (or the middle east) to be getting that hot on a regular basis.

Personally, I consider 90F sufficient for an upper limit!   :'

Here in Southern Utah we are often over 110F summer afternoons, and topped out at 117F a few years ago.  Our garage got quite a bit warmer than outside before I added insulation to the metal doors and a vent fan to pull in cooler air during the early morning hours.  It would not surprise me that some attics get to 150F or even higher.
