I am seeking a Small camera to attach to a house window (from the inside) to watch front of house for security.
I would like it to be small and discreet.
Does anyone have any suggestions what works good?
Thanks.

Up against a window you will have to be careful with cameras that have a night mode aided by IR light, as that can reflect off the window and blind the camera.
If you have a little ambient light from street light or porch light you can do fine with a color camera based on a starvis sensor.

As with the dashcams and their wide angle lenses you can see a lot due to the wide FOV, but actual identifying people will be problematic unless they are pretty close to the camera.
But if you just plan to use it for a overview you can react to, then it will be fine with a wide angle camera.

The wyzecam V2 often come up and for 20 bucks its not a major waste if it dont work.
