I bought this to make a Raspberry Pi webcam using the "Motion" software package. The camera is just the right size for the RPi board and camera. Just take the screws out of the end caps to open and remove the fake LEDs from the front piece. The front has a piece of glass (not plastic) so it doesn't introduce any distortion to the image. I used sticky velcro to fasten the camera to the inside of the glass. Very good solution for RPi camera.

I bought 6 of these and mounted under the roof eves, and after 6 months they all still look like new. Don't bother to put batteries in since real cameras don't have flashing lights. So if used as I suggest, absolutely weatherproof.

It's a matter of preference. Whatever will give you more sense of security, go for it. I decided not to activate it. It saves me the time and the effort of replacing the batteries. From where I have set them up, it also will not put me at risk of being caught putting batteries in what is supposed to be an authentic camera.

I assume that the light pulls to much power and drains the batteries, I bought 7 of these & they all drained the batteries within 2 weeks

You probably could but it may need to be leaning against something to stay in position. The "camera" portion does pivot on a ball joint so you could experiment around. At worst, maybe double-sided sticky tape on the mounting bracket part would work.

Not without you modifying it. It is powered by 2 AA batteries that run the blinking LED.

My eaves have joists that I attached to. It ended up looking great - but you do need something to screw into vertically.

The batteries make the light glow = which makes it look very, very real. My batteries only lasted 3 months at a time, so I had to get out the stepladder and do some reaching to keep changing them. That was annoying, but it looks just like the real ones if someone is looking over your wall or from a small distance. Use the batteries, keep that red glow going, that is a good feature.

No you dont, the wire goes into the mounting bracket that screws onto the wall, it has a hole for the wire, I put it through the hole then tied it in a knot so it won't come out before mounting
