Outdoor camera

Can you plug outdoor camera in a garage outlet?

Yes, you can! In fact, the closer you get the power brick to the location of your Gateway or router, the better... so inside the garage or home is generally a better option.

Are my cameras installed by Xfinity powered by electricity or battery.

Good morning, @traceym28. First and foremost, I hope you're having a great day! That is a great question. Our most commonly used indoor/outdoor camera runs on a DC 12V input, which means it would have to be plugged into a power outlet. This link will give you a breakdown of the camera, its features, and its SPECS. Please let me know if you have any questions.
