Recs on a battery powered wireless outdoor security camera
Looking for an outdoor security camera. I want something battery powered and wireless so I don't have to have any wires going to it. Also needs to have good night vision and distance. I tried a game cam but it didn't work out that well. Maybe i'm looking for a unicorn?

Just installed a battery powered ring spotlight camera at my deer camp about a month ago. Also has optional solar charger so you don't have to worry about changing batteries. Like it so far but the light could be a little better.

Installed Arlo Pro cameras since last August and have not had any problems.

I have 3 Arlo's around my home, going on 3 months without charging. They work really well, highly recommended.

re: Recs on a battery powered wireless outdoor security camera
I have questions about all of these:

have any of you noticed any wifi degradation after adding cameras which run on 2.4ghz band?

Reolink and Ring are both capable of streaming to devices...is there anyway to capture this stream on a DVR? I have my home server and would like to keep my camera feeds local.

I'm a bit of a privacy nut so I don't think I'd be down with the Arlo forwarding my stream to their servers, can this be disabled? Is this just something I'm going to have to get over if I want wireless cams?

Something like one of these amcrest cameras can save video to an sd card or an nvr or such without relying on a cloud storage although that’s available too.

Blink has been amazing for me. Running on the same pair of AA’s I installed the night I got them.

Which is over 2 years ago now.

Look them up. Amazon recently bought them. Excellent, inexpensive product.

Thanks, I researched the Amcrest cameras and they look really good. Unfortunately I'm still having trouble settling on what to get. I think I'm going to buy a cheap camera and try out iSpy and ZoneMinder on the cheap while I try to make my mind up further. Thanks for the input.

I just ordered the Blink 3 camera setup today. it's on sale on QVC for $250 and it comes with a couple of stickers and a sign. price is for today only.

when I googled them, a link to QVC popped up, it's a today's special value. I don't do QVC, but my mom does, so I got it on their easy pay too.
