    I'd like to place a camera in this area (towards the front of house forward of the door), but as you can see there is no eve to help protect the camera. Any ideas on what type of camera and how to best protect it?
    This camera would be watching the side gate/truck.

    Use a turret with a mount.

    I will be replacing these domes with turrets but this gives you an idea what it looks like.

    in the lower right corner of the image you have what I think are solar powered LEDs on the fence , sourced probably from amazon, if i'm seeing it right.


    how do you like them ? how long have you had them ?

    I have three totally exposed cameras. One is a dual mini dome on the bracket shown above. I chose this because I wanted the domes aimed downward to minimize sun/water exposure. The other two are turrets mounted on 130E waterproof junction boxes. One is mounted direct to the house and I caulked around the box. The other is on a patio cover and the cable enters through the side via conduit.
