Does my Hoop Cam need to be plugged in to work? What if there’s a power outage?

Yes, your indoor Hoop Cam needs to be plugged in to work. If there is a power outage, you will receive a notification that one (or several) of your devices is offline, and the camera will save a short video or image of the last motion it detected before it lost power. This could potentially help you to identify if the power at home went out, or if your device was unplugged by someone.
