Many concerns the past few months with numerous issues, most critical of which is the unanswered issue with bsttery drain.  An absurd issue . . . . 

 

Two days back, two cameras went from 100% (no suprise as they only had new batts installed a couple weeks back and between the two of them perhaps a half dozen videos since) to 'need batteries'.  Today, a third of identical bstt replacement vintsge that had 'two' vids since new batts.

 

My remaining cams?  Offline as I check into things today . . . . . . 

 

What happened with this system lately?  Much too common concerns by others with similar stories regarding battery draining.

 

And to thst, this sytem is I believe 3 or 4 years old.  Might this typically be the lifespan of this hardware and what Im seeing is the hardware breaking down?

 

anyway, as before, a huge letdown with this thst only increased over time.
