Pre-Purchase Question - Arlo Pro Power Consumption

I am considering a security system for our cottage where we have no winter power so would install a central solar power supply for the cameras and internet etc. I don't want to use battery powered cameras or individual camera solar panels but I understand the Arlo cameras can be fed with continuos wired power.

 

What voltage is required and and what is the total power consumption of the base station and each camera?

 

Thanks

Tony

base runs on 12vdc/1.5a from ac adapter 120v/.5a

camera runs on 5v / 1.8a from ac adapter thats is 100-240v ac /.3a

( needs the supplied ac adapter to charge battery pack as it also puts out 9v usb/1.1a )

( dual v adapter quallcom type )

Thank you for the information, that is what I needed.

 

Unfortunately I have just read through previous discussions about camera and charger limitations in cold weather. Since I live in Canada and I want a sytem for winter use at a cottage, I will not be buying Arlo!

Use an Arlo Q camera indoors looking through a window.
