Waterproof cameras are mainly used for outdoor surveillance, because rain and fog are likely to lead to stagnant water on the camera, if the treatment is not the time to penetrate into the water vapor, it will accelerate the speed of the equipment damage. So if used for outdoor, the cameras should be waterproof. Usually waterproof cameras are IP66, what does it mean on Security Camera? IP66 is a rating that giving to outdoor cameras and it defines the camera’s ability to protect against damage. The “IP” stands for ingress protection, the first number (in this case being 6) describes the rating that is given for solid objects, the smaller number, the lower rating. The rating of 1, the lowest rating, means the entering object being greater than 50mm. The rating of 6, the highest rating, means the camera would be dust tight. The second number stands for how well the camera can keep liquids out. The rating of 1 means no special protection at all, the rating of 8, the highest rating, meaning the camera would be suitable for continuous submersion in water.

Detailed diagram is as follows.
