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.
Thank you

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.

There are now hundreds of cameras that do this.
