If your going to hard wire it, you will have to source the wire as Arlo doesn't have one that long.

And it better be with great specs. Most wires are small gauge which leads to voltage drop and current restriction over that length.

Yes, small gauge wire is lossey with DC...

if I were doing it, I might use like CAT5 cable ( something weather resistant ) and then double or triple up on the wires for each side of power depending on distance.

Mind that if an issue occurs, you are prob outside of any warranty from Arlo

I got this 23ft. cable from Amazon and it's working fine.   https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07D746TS7/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
