I bought one of these. The usb cable is connected directly to the camera, however the other end doesn't seem to have any weatherproofing. Plus the cable's only 10 ft long where nest has a weather proof extension that reaches 25 feet. I"m trying to think of how to make this weatherproof with an extension.

Silicone the connection once it is made to make it watertight. You would do the same thing where your cable penetrates the wall to keep the elements out.

The camera is WIFI. The only physical connection is for power (USB from wall wort). Local recorded via SD card (not provided), and via cloud.

Hi nb1001, justinmonroe84,

On the socket connection:
Try some silicone stretch tape that people use to stop plumbing leaks, and then place it in a box and silicone the cable entry hole

iirc Freight Harbour has it for $4

Seran wrap and tape the ends. Worked well for me for years on my crappie zmodo cams and it's easy to remove and replace.

Doesn't this YI block 3rd party apps like blue Iris or tiny cam pro?


While we are on this with cam pros here, is there a desktop equivalent of TinyCam Pro? Or can we run TinyCam on desktop?
