I know....battery issues have been answered over and over....BUT I fully charged my two camera system on June 14th.  I rebooted everything.  The cameras each trigger about 1 time every 7-14 days.  Very low use.

On August 17th 1 is dead and the other has about 5% left.  

WHY??????  Can anyone avise me how to prevent this.  I got just over 2 months for what amounts to about 7 triggers per camera.

The system was installed about a year ago.  Until now they ran reliably for 4+ months between charges.  These cameras are 1200 miles away, so I need reliability.  I can't just charge them when they drain too fast.  

Can anyone make a suggestion?  Thanks in advance!

At this time the only thing I can recommend is to use external power with the batteries as a backup...

The newer outdoor power supply has been relaesed for the Pro/Pro2

 

( you don't mention which camera )
