Power loss Outdoor Cam (original)

For those losing power to some of your wired original outdoor Nest cameras I share your frustration.  When the power goes out here, all but one of the 5 outdoor Nest cameras comes back up after power is restored.  The only thing that works for me to fix this is to unplug the USB connector to the transformer and then reinsert it. You'd think that'd be the same as turning the power off and back on but apparently the USB connection has some issue when power is lost. This has been happening for years but of course not during the warranty period.

Happens to me too but what I discovered wasn’t power. It was the camera being at the outer edges of the wifi.  I redid my network and no more issues.  I used to have to go around and unplug the outer cameras.  Not anymore.  Maybe try that
