We all have many cams outdoors, yet powering the 5v is tricky depending on how each home has access. Wyze has the outdoor plug available but to power a cam we still need the 5v brick plugged into it, making it not waterproof. We can run an extention cord from the Wyze outdoor to an IP enclosure and then use the 5v brick in there.
Outdoor outlets have the flip up cover to access the outlets. I can plug in a 5v brick into an outlet and then connect a USB cable to feed a cam, but now I have to deal with closing the cover which pushes on the USB and brick.
My thought is to create a new product that combines an IP rating and 5V connectivity in one. Make a new product like the Wyze Outdoor Plug to where you have 5v outlets instead of 120v. It doesn’t need to be a smart plug since it feeds cams that have that capability. Have an IP rated cover that flips up to cover the area where the usb cables plug in.
I post this here for further discussion and to find out if there is a lot of interest. Otherwise I will just continue jury-rigging my outdoor cam 5v access.
