Not only do battery-powered security cameras give you more installation flexibility than their wired counterparts, they're also typically weatherproof for outside use. That means you can install a wireless security camera on a fence, in a tree -- or pretty much anywhere -- as long as your Wi-Fi network reaches it -- to beef up your home security system, keep an eye on your house and help deter intruders.

I've picked three models that I especially like for a variety of reasons, though I took into account things like video quality, field of view, whether it offered a mobile app and recording options, if it connects to your existing smart home setup and, of course, battery life. The Arlo Pro 3 is my favorite all-around camera. Period. Since it happens to be battery-powered too, it's my favorite for this list. I like the Blink XT2 for its reasonable price -- $100 -- and its long battery life (up to two years). The third and final camera in the list, the Logitech Circle 2, offers a wide range of compatible accessories to further extend its battery-powered convenience (and as a security camera that runs on battery power, it's already pretty convenient). So, keep reading if you're looking for the best battery powered security camera to meet your wireless outdoor security needs.

The Arlo Pro 3 home security camera is battery-powered so you can mount it to a tree or a fence without having to think about an annoying power cord. This wireless camera is also weatherproof to tackle the elements and is supposed to last for a few months on a single charge, depending on usage. Basically, it's absolutely perfect for outdoor security.

In addition to its convenient rechargeable battery, the Pro 3 has a lot of standout features: a built-in siren; arm/disarm modes; and person, animal, vehicle and package motion detection alerts (with an optional Arlo Smart subscription plan). The device also allows for two-way communication and has both color and black and white night vision for a crystal clear view of what's going on in your yard. And the video quality is top-notch.

If you're looking to incorporate your wireless outdoor security camera into your existing smart home system, the Pro 3 works with Alexa and Google Assistant. Read our Arlo Pro 3 review.
