Any camera that
(a) comes with the right drivers and program for your OS to do what you want it to do (like storing a movie with one frame each to seconds on your hard disk or streaming it real-time to your TV, or analyse it using AI and alarm the police if it detects a burglar or whatever your idea about monitoring is)
(b) has a wide enough and sharp enough view to monitor your whole front yard
I'd talk to a company that sells security cameras to discuss your requirements if you can't find a suitable camera yourself.
What camera might work to view a full screen picture out a window 5 feet above my computer? Would like to monitor my front yard.
