@mgprokosch Welcome to the community! I have two V2 Wyze cams outside in the outdoor housing covers. Amazon has several birdhouse type covers that work really well. My cameras have been outside for 9 months through rain, cold snowy days, and hot summer temperatures. And I haven’t had a single issue with them.
Just make sure you understand using these cams outdoors voids the warranty.
I’m very happy with mine and you can’t beat them for the price and quality of these cams.
On a positive note, Wyze does have an outdoor camera currently in testing and will be available in the near future.
Here are some outdoor covers on Amazon that work nicely.

You may find the following interesting: The birdhouse or enclosure type of camera holders can be more functional when augmented with a paddleboard. This is a carryover from my analog camera days.
Paddleboards can enhance location options for the swivel base mounts, allowing for a greater range of vertical location and utilization of all mounting screws. The paddle also provides some back of camera shielding.
