I have a townhouse with a bump out in front.   On the inside of the house near the floor is an outlet,   Can I mount the Arlo Pro 3 out the outside of the bump out and run the power cable to it through the wall.   The length would be less then 2 feet needed to go from inside to outside. 

 

If that isn't feasible, what would be the best way to run continuous power the the Arlo Pro 3?    I did pickup the 25 foot outdoor cable,  and I do have an outside outlet, but  its on ground level and not sure I want to just run a long cable in plain sight.

The big issues are 1) the weatherproofing of the cable and 2) the size of the hole needed to run the connectors through the wall. I use the outdoor cables for both AC power as well as solar panels and can hide most of the cable using the siding.
