This is a timely subject for me and I appreciate those who have shared their solutions.
My house was built in the 1930’s and has no cavities in the walls. Of course no outlets outside either. There is just no easy way to run 120V AC anywhere.
I was so excited with the prospect of the outdoor camera I immediately pre ordered 2 without doing my research. For my needs outdoors the PIR sensor is great but I need much more detection range than they have at barely 20’.
Then all of a sudden the v3 appears - oh boy! Maybe this is what I’ve been looking for all this time. But now faced with how to get power outside without it being a redneck mess.
Each camera has come so close to being what I actually want. My v3 is supposed to be here today (after being in the USPS system for 10 days…). I am going to do some testing with just an extension cord laying outside for a few days as a test to see if the v3 will do what I need.
Am bookmarking this thread in hopes for more ideas. Thanks all!
