Thank you all for your feedback. I will have to sit with my wife and convince her for the new locations.If you want any chance at ID'ing someone walking around any vehicles parked in the drive, you need a cam on each side of the door as shown in picture. You can always pant the cams and bracket to match the brick.
On the porch, that appears to be stucco on the right side of the door by the door bell.
Use some Panduit conduit to lower the cam down to at least 8ft, preferably 7ft.

I really don’t see it hard to put them lower in the garage. I can run the wires through the wall from inside of the garage.
Regarding the entrance I can try pulling the cable down. The doorbell has a Cat5e maybe I can use it to pull e longer cable and with a PoE extender use it for camera and doorbell.
