    Make sure you check the input voltage on the rainproof power supplies before you buy. I ended up with a bunch of 220v PSUs because I didn’t check my order closely.

    Doesn't the positive pressure have to come from somewhere? I don't see any filter but if there is air blowing out somewhere then somewhere else air has to be coming in unless they are creating a vacumm......
