Outdoor Camera plugged into an outlet?

Can the outdoor cameras be plugged into an 120 outlet, rather than running on batteries all the time?

Hi @bbonds28 ,

Yes, the Outdoor Camera can be plugged into AC with the Power Cable accessory. You can find it on this page.

Please note that the Outdoor Camera is always powered by the battery even when the battery is plugged in. This means that there's no difference in how the Outdoor Camera operates when it's plugged in vs. when it isn't. I mention this because early on there were some questions/assumptions that plugging the battery in would make the camera more responsive because it would be "always on" like the SimpliCam and not spend most of its time in standby and only waking up when it detected motion.
