     RainX is worth trying. It should’t hurt and it may very well make a difference.

    Thank you. I just wanted to make sure it would not hurt. We love our Spartan cameras!

    There's a product called cat crap that's supposed to work really well too, you'll probably have to order it online. You can also try putting a little roof over the camera to keep the dew off. A half a plastic coffee can works. Cut it top to bottom.

    All,
    I would like to comment and expand on the lens fogging issue that a user has experienced. I would first like to say that my spartan ghost camera is awesome, very happy with my purchase!! As a retired electronics engineer, I've enjoyed working with optical and electronic systems in a variety of environmental conditions. One of the many challenges is keeping these systems dry do to moisture intrusion....one of the ways to nearly guarantee the absence of moisture is to hermetically seal the system and introduce an inert gas such as Nitrogen...not practical for a Ghost camera!! Like the customer with the fogging problem above, I've recently experienced this problem with my Ghost camera...a lens defogger did solve the problem:) The other thing I noticed with my camera is after a heavy rain followed by low temperatures, a small amount of water was found in the battery compartment = condensation and a small amount of camera performance degradation. I'm designing a heating system for mine right now..hopefully, this will help:) I've noticed on some of the comments on the forum that cameras just stop working...consider removing it from the damp environment and letting it dry out.

    Michelle, the camera should be getting no moisture inside. Do you have the rubber washer between the antenna and camera?

    Hi John, yes the rubber washer is in place. I'll go ahead and check the gasket again on the cover door and the antenna. Also, I have the camera in a metal lock box which may be restricting air flow.
    Thanks John:)
