Can I wire a camera directly to the mains?
We don't recommend this for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the camera comes with its own dedicated 12V, 1A power supply/transformer which regulates optimum voltage to the camera. If you bypass this PSU and connect the camera directly to a mains supply there is every likelihood you will damage the camera's operation. Secondly, using an alternate power supply will also void the Warranty should something happen to your camera.
