Outdoor Security Camera w/ RPi Zero W Power Supply

Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:20 pm

Hey everyone, I currently have a security system with my Pi 3 using MotionEyeOS. It works great, but i currently have it inside right next to my outlet looking outside. I just ordered my Pi Zero W to use in place of the Pi3. I would like to put it outside in a better position, but im limited to a short distance due to my microUSB cable length. I have no outdoor outlets close to where i want to position my camera. So my question is, how can i power my Pi Zero W from outside and no where near an outlet. How long of a microUSB cable can i use to effectively power the Pi. Thanks!
