Outdoor camera base station location

Hello everyone…I have a base station and expansion cameras on the way and have a question about where the base station should be placed in my home.

Should I keep the base station:

  1. close to my router (center of the house), which may lead to issues with the cameras that will be installed on the outer fascia of my house (my wifi signal is not great out front/back (even close to the house once outside the cinderblock walls).
  2. closer to the exterior wall where the cameras are to be installed (even though the base station will then have a lower speed)
  3. Get a new (non-Spectrum) router to boost my signal/speed
