    Rain on the window..

    Post by snapper » Thu 31 Jul 2014 9:47 pm


    Just thought I would pass on a tip for those using a webcam behind an exterior window (or in a glass fronted exterior case).

    Rainx is a glass treatment for cars that causes rain drops to form beads and roll off much quicker and in an inspired moment, I tried some on my webcam case glass window.
    Works very well - I no-longer get beads of water forming, can even see the water run off the glass in video streaming mode!

    www.rainx.co.uk is the one I used (from Halfords), but i'm sure there are other makes.

    I have no link to the product manufacturers or anything, just something that others may find useful...

    Have used the wipes to coat the inside funnel surface of the davis VP2 rain gauge. Allows for quicker bucket tip for small amounts of percipitation like 'misty' rain.


    A man with a thermometer always knows the temperature. A man with two thermometers, not so sure.
