Should the camera be used indoors or outdoors?
IP cameras are available in both outdoor and indoor versions.
The camera for outdoor use is mounted in a waterproof enclosing camera housing which protects against rain and other bad weather.
The camera is for indoor use in some models may be able to rotate so that the image / lens can be rotated in different directions, and unlike outdoor IP cameras so can not withstand moisture or water. However, if it is possible to mount the camera in the enclosed outdoor areas (garage / workshop), then in some cases it is possible to choose such a model, an indoor camera can not withstand as low temperatures as an outdoor camera can, which is typically is minus 20-30 degrees, so the camera can generally not be as exposed as an outdoor IP Camera.
