What is the acceptable voltage range for a Nest wired camera? As in what is the minimum voltage required for it to work, and what is the maximum voltage before it fries? I realise that the tech specs just say "7.5W USB-A" which implies 5V nominal VCC required, but need to know the absolute min and max VCC levels allowed. The reason for this is that I want to use an existing cable built into the fabric of the building and will need to inject power at one end - allow for voltage drop due to the length of cable - plug camera into the other end.

That's doesn't help I'm afraid, and I reference that in my original question.
I am in the same boat. I need to know if the Nest Camera Indoor/Outdoor specifically can regulate a supply of 9v down to its internally required voltage or if I need to step it down to the 7.5v that the documentation indicates. The documentation indicates no VCC minimum or maximum range when power supplies may be +/-5% regardless. Is this the case, that the voltage range must be within +/-5% or does it have an internal regulator that may handle an overvoltage condition of 20% without any damage?
