Outdoor camera - Enquiries - 07-29-2022

I'm looking for a _reliable_ outdoor security camera. (I have an inexpensive one currently that always seems to disconnect.) Ideally I'm looking for something solar-powered. I do have an outdoor plug, but it would be very easy for someone to access the plug to disable the camera.

Do folks like Synology Surveillance Station, or am I better off getting something highly rated that uses its own software/app with cloud storage? Any specific recommendations? Thanks in advance!

Solar-powered cameras will not work with a NAS. But you could consider POE-powered cameras.
We have described them here

I hope this helps.
