    Hi,

    I'm interested in the Aiphone JFS serie of door video intercom for my
    new home.
    I've read the online manuals and specs. What's bothering me is the
    technical
    precautions say the operating temperature for the outdoor video
    station is
    -10C to +60C (+14F to +140F).

    But I'm living in Canada and the temperature during winter can go down
    to -30C (-22F).
    Could it be a problem? Has anyone used it in a very cold weather
    condition ?

    Thanks.

    I'd check with the manufacturer but I'm guessing that the only thing
    that would happen is that during the really cold weather, the unit
    would simply, "slowwwww down".

    I wouldn't mount it in a highly exposed location, (direct exposure to
    water, ice, snow) if at all possible and you should make sure that you
    weather proofed it as much as possible with insulation and sealing to
    avoid condensation.

    In my experience, cold doesn't destroy moisture protected solid state
    devices ..... but may cause them to become sluggish or temporarally
    stop working.
