Do security cameras still work during a power outage?

I was wondering if security cameras still work during a power outage, or are they connected to a different power source? I understand that some businesses might use generators, but what about homeowners?

Maybe. They can be on battery power, like UPSs for computers and the like. But they may not be.

    sometimes there is a battery back up but others times not. It just depends on how the person sets it up.

    Most security cameras will have battery backup that switches on the instant A/C power is interrupted.
