I was looking around for a decent box with camera but there is so many I have no idea what to look for and what would be a good choice at the decent price :confused:
Anyone have any suggestions?

Is a bit of a minefield butterfly, and can be quite expensive. Some of the cameras inside are not that good. Ones with a higher TVL would be better but more expensive. Thats TV lines. Then there is the question do I want the camera hard wired or wireless, and the wireless can have a limited range. Sorry I cant be more helpful but not to well informed with what you are asking. Do you need to have a camera one. The wired ones need to be connected to the mains via an adaptor ( voltage regulator ). Usually 12 volts.

Drilling would pose a problem, so I think it would have to be a wireless camera. But which one, that is the challenge :unsure:

The only drilling you will need to do is to put the box up.

I thought I need to have the mains somewhere outside (like in the garage or shed, which I don't have) to plug it in or have to drill through the wall to get cable in and plug it in :unsure:

Ah I see. Yes you will need to get electricity to the camera.
