I've purchased an outdoor security camera and plan on installing above my garage. Question is, how to prevent the camera itself from being stolen? It would only take someone a couple of minutes to unscrew the camera and then I'm out $350.
How have you resolved this issue? Is there any security housing for the camera's themselves? I'm searching the internet and haven't found anything I like yet. My thought is a square, lockable, metalic box with a round hole for the camera. I could mount the box, place the camera inside, and be confident my camera will still be there when I get back home.
I currently have it mounted higher on the house but my porch blocks about 35% of the view of my yard.
