Ip camera (discrete) in porch light, classic design

Hi,

I'd like to buy an outdoor (porch) light with camera included but the camera should be discrete.
The camera should work with Synology Video Station.

Would like a design like this https://www.lovalight.com/en/philips-raindrop.html but don't find one.
Anybody ideas?

Buy that porch light, remove the lighting components and have your local glass store drill a hole in the globe large enough for a camera to peek through.  Buy whatever camera you like and mount the camera behind the hole.

(If you can't get that one with a milk glass globe, spray paint the globe white on the inside.)

No need to modify anything.  You could buy that light fixture and just buy a light bulb security camera that will screw into the same edison socket.  You might need to add a small mirror to get the angle you want. https://www.amazon.com/light-security-camera/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Alight%20security%20camera

Nice but ugly and really visible.

I might better include the camera in a Wi-Fi doorbell. Should be compatible with my Synology though.
