I was just wondering if someone had seen the same. I own a FI8905W outdoor camera, upgraded the firmware to the latest version, configured the camera to another port (8088), configured the wifi. Rebooted the camera, checked it and it worked fine.
So I putted the camer outdoor.
After a few hours the camera disappeared from my network.
I then wired the network to it again (indoor) and found that the camera had completely lost it's configuration.
The above repeated two more times.
After that I decided to keep the camera indoor and it worked fine for three days. So I figured that it was time to put it outside again.. guess what: after a couple of hours a complete loss of configuration.
So I contacted my reseller. This guy now thinks it has to do with my wifi channel (I'll change that this evening) and therefore my signal strength (which is 82% accoring to the router).
But what I don't understand is how the loss of wifi network could result in a complete loss of configuration.
I think it has to do with the outdoor temperature, which is around 0 degrees celsius (32 F) til -5 degrees celcius (23 F) at the moment. The camera get too cold and then the memory is wiped, which results in factory default setting, or complete loss of my configuration.
What are your thoughts?

It was up to -40C this winter here in Syberia, and the cameras work well. Fi8905w reboots one or two times a week, but it doesn't cause any problems for me. The only moment is that clock settings are not saved, so there's usually 1970 and the random time on the cameras. Entering local NTP server doesn't help. I use stand-alone monitoring software (Zoneminder), so the camera's local time isn't important for me.
