    Do you use any Wyze for outdoor? Wondering if the cams can withstand our winters outside
    They're in the process of releasing their outdoor cam, hopefully comes on Amazon soon!

    I have 3 outside and this will be their 3rd winter. As long as they are kept from getting wet directly they will be fine. They produce a lot of heat and don’t freeze up.

    Second this experience. I did buy little housings from them off of amazon (not waterproof) though and they are mounted under eves.

    I've had mine pretty exposed without a housing where it's been rained on pretty heavily and it hasn't given up. I think it's taken some pea sized hail hits too.

    I have a project coming up that will involve adding some outdoor security camera. I am having trouble deciding if I want to go POE (eg Unifi or ReoLink) or go completely wireless (eg Wyze). Is there even an option to plug the camera into an exterior outlet while using wireless?
    If I go wireless, is Wyze still the most economical way to go ?

    Also, which exterior cam can withstand our cold climate?

    Always POE if you can. You never have to worry about weather killing the battery or wifi signal strength. Also with POE you can easily have a UPS that powers them in the event of a power outage too.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    unifi is the best combo of works great and cheap. Otherwise I dunno maybe try FS? Assuming Cisco is out of price range?

    I have some Dahua cameras recording to a Synology NAS. If I were to redo it, I might have gone Unifi. Their new offerings look pretty decent for the price.

    My dad has the Costco POE Lorex system and it's been solid. Setup was kinda finicky as I did have to power cycle some of the cameras a couple times before I could find them but once it was setup it was solid
    2 years and nothing has had to be powercycled

    Have you experienced any issues on colder days? Say -20 and lower?
