The Silicon Treatment

Belated post[27.10.2009 14:13]

When I mentioned about the CCTV cameras getting a Silicon Treatment, what I meant was to apply silicon sealants to make them waterproof. This is something new and might even void warranty to the cameras. But since its not ours and the customer did not purchase from us, *ahem*, we can practically do what we want with them to get the desired end result. Not only that, the supplier in China did advise us to do so in their E-mail, just a day after I suggested to the customer.

Ha ha ha.

And so, the customer bought another two CCTV
cameras to replace the ones affected by the rain.

Note this design does not have any rubber grommet
or bung or anything to prevent the water from going
in. But then again, no one else would pointed them
facing downwards.

And so, we sealed their butts and also, the stands.
This was because the stands did not have any
rubber parts to grip onto the cameras. I will tell
you what happened later, in another post.

And so, arriving at the customer's place, not only
we were required to replace the two affected
CCTV cameras, the customer also bought another
five dome-type CCTV where we were required to
install them as well. How I wished they told us
earlier as it is difficult to put a ladder in the car

Alas, the new China-made power adaptor needs
to be converted as well. So, since the customer
does not have any of these converters or even a
3-pin plug, I took them from other non-essential
electrical items such as the China-made Kenwood
Walkie-talkie chargers.

Not only that, one of the doors were claimed to be
going haywire. And so, they managed to wrestle a
free control unit from the manufacturer, which I
used to replace the wonky one. The one above is
mine after I asked the customer to give it to me.
