Am in need of an outdoor camera housing that would fit under an awning, against a house wall, but follow the curves of those two surfaces (as in a right angled back), which would also have the clear panel that the camera could see out of facing down the wall, perhaps a slightly angle out from it.

What have others done to provide an indoor camera protection from the elements in this way before?

  • Can you provide a picture, or two? That helps a lot with these kinds of issues.

  • You can surely get, or even fabricate, a weather-tight box. But why? Why not just install an outdoor-rated camera? Your question seems very broad. Without knowing what you've tried already, and what your specific constraints are, it's impossible to know what the right answer is. Jan 29 '20 at 17:38
  • @SteveSh - Will capture some pictures this weekend, when I can get natural light on the install location.

  • @PeterDuniho - Because I already have a suitable camera to use. I have not tried anything (was hoping that there was a commercially available solution, but have searched the likes of Amazon without luck). Constraint is only that it is waterproof; has space inside for one of those indoor cameras that are in black housing, has a U mounting on it, that are so prevalent a shape and size on Amazon/the like that I swear it is a industry standard; and is of the shape and has a 'window' on the side mentioned in the question. Any other information needed?

  • "I already have a suitable camera to use" -- judging from your question, I'd say that actually, you don't. But, if you have a specific camera you intend to put in the box, your question should include details about that exact camera. Jan 30 '20 at 5:22
