What are the options for powering a camera which is placed outside?
Is there a date for a new external cable to be released?
Do the Motion Zones work with the solar panel?

Apologies - My previous post should have read -20. Autocorrect took the Minus sign (-20) out of my previous message. To give an idea of how half-assed Netgear can be...it wouldn't let me log in to reply to this thread - forced me to change my password, and then wouldn't recognize the new one either. I had a similar experience with my Nighthawk R8000 Router, they pushed out a firmware update and crashed it.
It's not like I haven't given these guys a chance. I've owned Netgear stuff for over 10 years. They've always had weak support / communication.
For Arlo Pro 2 it is stated operating temp as -4° to 113° F (-20° C to 45° C). Is it really so camera is hard coded to power off at -20C? Or could that be solved by buying batteries that are more cold resistant?
All of the Pro series have a cut-off of -4F. You can't buy different batteries so if power doesn't make a difference, that's where it will automatically turn off.
A possible solution would be the Q camera looking through a window. Since it uses pixel-based detection, it will work fine. Just remember to turn off Night Vision so the IR LEDs don't blind the camera from the reflection in the glass.
Ok, fast foward 6 months and there's still no outdoor power solution from Arlo? Are you kidding me? I'm a new Arlo Pro 2 owner, and don't necessarily need CVR or 3-second lookback right now, but eventually perhaps. Regardless, I just looked at the product accessory page and i don't see anything. Am I missing it?

Where are you?
I bought a VMA4900 power supply last month in the UK.
Plenty on offer in the USA.

the Wasserstein solar panel is total junk. do not buy. I waited a month to install on my outdoor camera because of snow and it was not returnable on amazon. Caused damage to my battery. Terrible product.
