Placing the camera in a hot room, over a heating vent and/or in direct sunlight can cause the camera to overheat. The camera will shut down to protect itself. I think the internal temp of something like 120F is sufficient to cause this. If you've noticed, the camera runs warm because it's always streaming, whether recording or not. Add in lots of external heat and it shuts down. Let it coold down naturally or change its location so external sources don't overheat it.
