  @ccsr,

The moisture inside a lens from condensation is normally a result of rapid temperature or humidity changes causing the inside of the camera to be warmer than the air.

 

  • Make sure that your camera is away from the elements and is not directly exposed to rain or runoff.
  • Ensure all Ports and cable covers are all secure with no openings.

 

To prevent condensation, it is recommended to acclimatize your camera to the outside temperature. You can do this by placing the dry, powered-off camera in a plastic bag with a silica or moisture-absorbing packet. Allow the Temperature of the Camera and Bag to Stabilize after a short time, then move the bag and camera outdoors without opening the bag. After the camera has adjusted to the outdoor temperature, feel free to install the camera normally. The camera should now be more resistant to any condensation that may form.

 

If there is excessive moisture, it is recommended to bring the camera indoors and place it in a slightly warm location for a few hours.

This is supposed to be an outdoor camera with IP66 rating, but is nothing more then a indoor camera made to look like an outdoor camera,

Since noticing moisture in the lens i have also noticed that it effected the memory card and deleted all past recordings. This all from a little blowing rain, TP link needs to not advertise as IP66. I would not recommend this camera at all.
