As long as you keep rain and sun off them, they'll work well outdoors.
I have some mounted on trees, went thru a couple before I found some that had good seals, others are under eaves.
You can get camera power extension cables. Provided they use the inverted coax small pin connector
Ok. I hope this helps everyone. The tech just configurd my camera and I watched this to share so you dont need a tech to come out to pair a new camera. They did replace the camera for free and I had already bought two of them on Ebay for like $20.
Anyway, here are the steps to pair a camera if you need to:
1) Plug in new camera into the router with the white cord that also plugs into a/c power. This is how you power up the camera.
2) After two lights light up on the camera, press the reset buttom on the back of the camera for 30 seconds then release.
3) Go to your control panel and under settings, go to camera, then "add a camera". (if you already had 6 of them, you need to delete one first).
4) Follow the prompts and the camera will be there. You can rename it in the panel also.
Hope that helps and glad to give back...

one of the Belkin 12vdc power supply with internal battery units rather than a short run time UPS...
You see them for Uverse modems a lot. It has a single inverted power cable, center pin + and provides 12vdc at 1.5 amps for up to 4 hours.. I believe it has a small center pin, won't work on a sb 6121/41/83 with large pin modem or the advanced gateways. I simply add a second pigtail with the correct connector.
In case anyone reads this down the road, there is no way (as of August 2015) to do this. The best workaround is to turn the dimming all the way down and hack the setting that is meant to be used to turn off the display overnight. I've set mine to turn off the display for the maximum time allowed (23 hours, 45 minutes).
Not sure why the manufacturer thinks everyone wants to waste power an illuminated tablet in their home all day long but apparently that's the case. This device is used by companies other than TWC so it's not really on them.
Program Rules in the IH portal,
Set one set of rules for "summer" and another for "Winter"
I DO NOT have the "on demand" electricty Meter you spoke of, but I do know of them.
The ele company charges "X" amount per KW between 7 am, and 10 am, and then another $ amount between 4 pm and 10pm. or how ever the Ele/Gas company is set up. (it varys between company, and locality)
if the stat is set correctly, it can be controlled to not come on during the HIGH PEEK DEMAND time and sock every pinney out of your savings.
I have allready set up the summer temps and times to come on and off and the temps that I want for the summer months'
have set up "Winter rules" but have them "disabled". (have that rule turned off)
So, To answer My own questionl, YES the t-stats are programable, but they have to be done thru the WWW portal, NOT thru your I phone Android phone. YES you can change the temp of the stat on the phone.
Yes, you can bump UP or DOWN the temp of the stat from 100 miles away or 2 feet away on the I Phone/ android app. BUT one cannot set up the rules to have the stat turn on A/c - Heat 45 minutes AUTOMATICALLY before you get home to either have the house warm/cool when You arrive home.
Umm.. I can do that-
When I log into the web portal you click on My Rules then select "add rule" select the light and program the light to go on or off whenever you please.
I have mine set for dusk to 11:00 on certain days and different times for others and even have a vacation schedule saved so that I can turn on or off when I need it.
Hope that helps
Blue/Purple is when the system is starting up, rebooting.
Red is Armed
Green is Disarmed
Yellow is when something, a door or window, is open or not yet ready to arm.
Generally you would only see the blue/purple in a flash then gone.
Hope this helped.
