Now you can use flexible security cameras without power or even Internet access, which may be good news for you. However, most of the plug-in wireless security cameras need fiber optic patch cables to supply power at present and only a small number of WiFi security cameras can achieve no power supply.

Whether CCTV surveillance cameras can continue to work after power failure depends on which type of security camera you use. PoE and traditional wireless security cameras will stop working when power is off, while battery powered security cameras can still function perfectly after a power failure.
The battery life of a wireless security camera running on batteries can last several months, which can vary greatly depending on settings, environmental conditions, and other factors. For example, battery powered security cameras with power-saving technology can support up to six months in standby mode. Some battery powered security camera manufacturers claim battery life can last six months or even two years, but sometimes you may find that the battery runs out in just a few weeks, so you should remember to check other customers' comments before buying a battery powered security camera and a single mode patch cord.
Can CCTV cameras record without power and without battery charging? If a security camera with a battery is used with an SD card, the camera will operate seamlessly without power. But for POE and plug-in wireless security cameras, the camera will stop working and recording after power failure. If you are equipped with UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for these two types of security cameras, the camera can still record and work when the power is suddenly cut off.
