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 enclosed camera housing that protects against rain and other bad weather.
The camera is for indoor use, in certain models it can be able to rotate, so that the image/lens can be rotated in different directions, and unlike outdoor IP cameras, it cannot withstand moisture or water. However, if it is possible to mount the camera in the closed outdoor areas (garage / workshop), then in certain cases it is possible to choose such a model, however, an indoor camera cannot withstand as low temperatures as an outdoor camera can, which typically is minus 20-30 degrees, so the camera generally cannot be as exposed as an outdoor IP Camera.
