Technical Details


Product Description

DropCapsule Pro is a water and debris resistant housing for Dropcam Pro allowing you to place you Dropcam outside or in environments that could potentially damage your camera. We are currently shipping an updated model that addresses the night vision issue but requires the camera to be set at a zoom of 1.3x to overcome a slight vignette. The screenshot is in a room with zero available light using our new DropCapsule with the Dropcam set to 1.3x. Includes Metal Step Up Ring and glass UV filter. Please follow all recommended temperature ranges for Dropcam. DropCapsule is not waterproof and will not protect your Dropcam if submerged in anything other than air. DropCapsule is water and rain resistant with the added benefit of offering some impact protection. For the ultimate in protection clear silicone or plumbers putty is recommended around your Dropcam power cord. The DropCapsule HD is now available on Amazon. It will fit your Dropcam HD. If you have a Dropcam with the gray mount the DropCapsule HD is the correct choice. If your mount is black the DropCapsule Pro is what you will want to order. DropCapsule Pro is proudly made in the USA and ships USPS 2 Day Priority.

Product exactly as described, excellent quality construction, fit perfect, great design. As noted in the description it mentioned night vision may be a problem so i added 58mm wide angle lens hood in place of the UV filter and placed camera at a height where it's angled down. This seems to have addressed the night vision issue. Functioning great in our current rain. I think it would take very high winds for any moisture get get to camera. I have had no issues with WIFI signal being hindered. Will try to update once it's been out for a week or two.

I found this product to be superior to others, specifically one from Germany. I liked using the Dropcam mount, because it is flexible and you can position the Dropcam to a limited extent, instead of other mounts. It was easy to install the Dropcam camera in the DropCapsule. The picture from the Dropcam is clear within the DropCapsule mount, but, alas, even with the camera type lens cover, I still don't get any night viewing. I have had it installed outside, in a sheltered but not covered, area, and so far the Dropcam has continued to function. We have had some rain and snow, and temps at -2, and the DropCam has continued to work.

I have now purchased 3 of these units. They work great and fit the bill for mounting the DropCam Pro outside. I would still recommend placing the camera in a place that is still covered by the element. Pictures included on a residential application...
Very simple and easy to install.

I did lots of research on outdoor housings for the dropcam pro. I found the dropcapsule pro to be the clear winner. It's very high quality build and easy to assemble. I mounted this under an over hang on my Garage looking over my driveway. I haven't used the night vision because I have lights on all night over my drive way. I put a small amount of silicon where the mini USB is plugged into the camera. I live in Florida where it's very hot and humid and we get plenty of rain. I will update this review once summer is over.

Amazing locally made invention which allows us to use the fabulous drop am pro outside! The manufacturer is aware of the problem when using night vision that there is too much reflection from lens on casing. They are currently working on developing a different shield to extend out the front of the camera which will hopefully allow the use of night vision on the dropcam pro - with the current lens we can only pick up action at night if an outside light turns on.

This product works great! It is very well made and extremely durable for mounting outside. The DropCam fits in the mount perfectly. Tips from another reviewer helped troubleshoot the night-vision issues, but I expected the capsule wouldn't work perfectly in the dark because the product description very clearly stated the known issues with night vision. Overall, it works exactly as described.

This is a good product for the DropCam. The best thing I like is it fits in the factory bracket that comes with DropCam, so you don't have to order a special bracket as well. This protects the camera from ALL elements and it doesn't distort the picture any.

This is a fairly well made case for the Dropcam Pro. However, I had hoped to be able to use the Dropcam's built in IR illumination but despite the use of an "IR blocking O-Ring" in the DropCapsule the amount of reflection from the IR lights at night is very high. So high in fact that the IR illuminators cannot be used. This is an inherent problem with these type of cases in which the IR light from the Dropcam bounces off of the plastic lens in the front of the case and back into the Dropcam camera. Unless an external source of light is available, it may be impossible to see anything a night. Another issue with the DropCapsule is that the plastic lens is very easy to scratch and had a few small scratches when I received them.

An update to this review:
I ordered more of these and the newest ones I've received have a camera lens filter installed instead of a cheap plastic lens. This is a significant improvement.
