What you want is a wireless ip camera.   There are many options depending on your comfort in setup and configuration.   Search on wireless ip cameras.

Then, let me recommend by a Foscam directly from the company.   The link to a good outdoor wireless IP camera on sale is here:

When you buy direct, you can get support and warranty service direct from the manufacturer.  You do need power - an electrical outlet - to run the camera.   Also, add the Blue Iris software to record your video.

Here is a simple hidden camera in a clock radio that can be placed inside.   It is from the same company.
