Latest Outdoor Camera

I want to add an outdoor camera. It will need to be hard wired. To protect from weather after using the usb port what enclosure can I use for one of the new cameras?

Welcome to the forums! If you’re using an outdoor camera (XT, XT2, new style outdoor) you don’t need a housing as they are weatherproof. You just need to put a bead of liquid rubber sealant around the USB connector.

Thank you. I was over thinking it. A simple solution.

You’re welcome. By the way, I just remembered that Amazon sells waterproof outdoor cables for the outdoor cams. Search on Amazon for Blink waterproof cable. The sealant is cheaper - LOL.

Yep. Already had found the cable and worked out the installation regarding running cable to outlet. Just got hung up on Blink’s warning about waterproofing. I have one camera with batteries on my back porch to monitor the hummingbird feeder. But as a bonus it covers part of the yard for security purposes.
