Heat and colors of status lights on Slim 13E cameras

Post by will.b » Wed Jul 17, 2019 1:32 pm

Hello,

Can anyone please say what are the meanings of the different colors of the round LED on the bottom-right corner of the SLIM 13 cameras?

Also, the Slim 13E cameras are hot to the touch to the point where you would want to take your fingers off after holding one for about 5-10 seconds.
The Prime 13 and 13W have what appear to be heat sink fins on the rear, but not so the Slim 13E.

The cameras appear to be running fine otherwise. Just checking if the heat and LED colors are normal.

thanks
William

Hello William,

Thanks for checking with the community regarding the Slim 13E cameras.
Temperature wise, the cameras can run pretty hot so what you describe does not sound unusual. I would not be concerned, unless the camera actually begins to malfunction.

You can find some information regarding the LED status indicators here.

If you do run into any issues, feel free to reach out to us in Support.

Best,
Steven

Oh, okay, I was worried by this as well and thought there was some kind of short-circuit as LEDs don't heat that much... Glad to hear it's normal. As long as it doesn't smell like melting plastic, I'll just keep using them then :lol:
