    I need a single outdoor camera (daytime only) to cover a parapet gutter exit point as ours blocked up and flooded the loft! It needs to be fitted and forgotten so a good make. Would be bolted/ screwed to the brickwork and open to the elements. I would also need it to transmit pics to my phone as and when I access it to check gutter not blocked. Unsure whether I need one hard wired or wireless but am looking for something longlasting and not going wrong!

    Can anyone recommend something?

    thanks:)

    thing is by the time a switch is activated its too late as thats because the outlet is blocked. When it hammers down like the other week its so much water and our outlet carries water from 3 roofs so will fill up in seconds. I definitely would find something I could check that the outlet is clear without using a ladder would be useful. So hard wired the way to go and keep the transmitting thing dry in the house?

    That's what I'd do
    It's a hostile environment so a waterproof camera that is powered from the dry of a loft would be my choice, and a transmitter also in the loft or cable to a monitor
