I have a 2camera system (both cameras inside) up and running since January 15
One camera still on original batteries. The other has already gone through 3 sets and just installed set 4 today. Any suggestions why.? Presently on Fw version1.3.2261 and cameras on 1.1.2074

I would question above the location of each and/or how used...

indoors, outdoors, one more at night ( ir's illuminators use about 2x total power over day time use* ), motion sense on one more than other , etc..... many variables.

 

(* what is not known to most is that there was originally also a DAY camera that runs on just 2 batteries as the second set weren't needed as no ir illuminator )

 

 

An easy test would be to swap the two cameras and see if the one continues with long battery life.

Both cameras same Not a day version
Did swap cameras today when I replaced batteries
Both cameras are normally on sleeping mode with very little live viewing
Only on home and awake when away.
Only motion episodes have occurred when entering home after being gone
The camera that has battery issues is in a foyer that is normally cooler 55 degrees vs the other in a room normally 67 degrees
