The amount of heat generated by a Base Station is directly related to how hard the processor is working.


The thing that works the processor the hardest is generating alerts, and the number one cause of overheating that we see is people leaving their cameras armed all the time. Examples of this include leaving indoor cameras armed when you are at home or, in a business use situation, when you have staff and customers around during opening hours. This can mean the cameras are generating alerts continuously for periods long enough to overheat the Base Station, forcing it to switch off. This is not the intended use of CleverLoop, and is similar to leaving a standard motion detection security system armed with sirens going the entire time.


Flipping your Base Station upside down, so the air vents are up, can help with cooling, but it is more important to address the cause of the overheating


Your CleverLoop system is designed to be used such that false alerts are kept to an absolute minimum.
