The main difference between Stick Up Cam Battery, Stick Up Cam Plug-In, Stick Up Cam Solar and Stick Up Cam Elite is how they receive power.
Stick Up Cam Battery is powered by the Quick-Release Battery Pack. You can also purchase the Indoor/Outdoor Power Adapter (sold separately) to connect Stick Up Cam Battery to standard outlets for nonstop power. Or you can connect it to a Solar Panel (sold separately) to keep your camera charged with direct sunlight.
Stick Up Cam Plug-In is powered by an AC adapter that plugs into standard power outlets. You can also purchase a Quick-Release Battery Pack (sold separately) for backup power.
Stick Up Cam Solar comes with a Solar Panel as well as a Quick-Release Battery Pack. The Solar Panel requires direct sunlight to keep your device charged. But with the Quick-Release Battery Pack, your camera will have backup power in case you don’t have enough sunlight.
Stick Up Cam Elite uses Power over Ethernet for nonstop power and a reliable connection. It comes with a PoE Adapter that must be placed indoors and plugged into your router in order to power up and connect your Stick Up Cam to the internet.
Another difference between the Stick Up Cams is the mounting bracket. Stick Up Cam Battery, Stick Up Cam Plug-In and Stick Up Cam Solar can be placed on flat surfaces or mounted to a wall, but you will need to purchase a Mount for Stick Up Cam (sold separately) if you’d like to install them on your ceiling or eaves. Stick Up Cam Elite, however, comes with a mounting bracket that lets you place it on walls, ceilings and flat surfaces like a table or shelf without the need to purchase any additional accessories.
