I currently have (20) XT2 cameras around my home and property, with (10) more awaiting installation. I love these things.
Unfortunately, the $^%&* BIRDS and SQUIRRELS love to chew on them, and LATELY they have decided that the clear dome over the IR sensor is particularly delicious!
I wish I could buy replacement dome lenses for the IR sensors. RAIN can get into the cameras because the domes have been chewed off! Is my only recourse now, to drill a small “weep hole” in the bottom of the camera?!?
I wish BLINK would sell replacement camera ENCLOSURES (front and back)
I need to find some GAWD-AWFUL tasting hot pepper tape, or maybe a hot pepper liquid glue that owners can coat the exteriors of their cameras with, to prevent them from being EATEN! The green paste Japanese WASABE would work!
I am going to CVS to see about the stuff they paint on kids’ fingernails to keep kids from biting their nails or sucking their fingers. I have to do SOMETHING! My cameras are literally being EATEN.
I may have to fabricate a chicken wire cage around them, making sure the camera and IR sensor are not blocked by steel wire. This is a REAL PROBLEM! Someone needs to come up with an accessory that prevents this damage. I will buy them!
