Is it possible to extend the power cord on the Dropcam Pro? AND is a black power cord available (so less visible for security applications)?

    The power cord is a standard USB cord. So you can purchase any black or extension cord you like and use that instead.

    I added an extension at my old place to reach the nearest outlets and it worked just fine. DropCam only uses USB for power, not data, so thick cables are better, but high data transfer is not important. USB cables are not normally rated for power transfer so your milage may vary.
