Question about Digimerge Home Security
We have 2 outdoor cameras mounted behind the shop they are rated for -40 celcius but they are freezing and icing up inside the dome any ideas why
The heaters inside the camera housing are underpowered or not getting power at all, they should be getting power from a separate power source, check for any unplugged transformers of blown fuses in the camera power supply.

SOURCE: I have 14 camera's plugged
Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
To answer your question:
Running these units on passive video power is what is killing the last camera.
The system is rated to run 15 cameras on passive power, so long as you have a true 110vac on a 25 amp circuit.
If you are running 110vac on a 15amp and truely only get 105vac from the circuit; it will dump one of the cameras due to power loss.
Pick one of the cameras that is close to a seperate power source, and wire it to independant power. That should give you the power you need to wire up the 15th camera. Another idea is to switch them all over to a 25amp circuit instead of a 15amp.
Have a great day!
