Suggestions for solar-powered security camera?

Having finally taken the plunge and bought a robot mower which will live outside, I'm thinking about getting a security camera for the back garden. Ideally I'd like one that:
  1. Is solar-powered
  2. Is fully waterproof
  3. Is motion-activated
  4. Has night vision
  5. Will allow me to view on my phone
  6. Can connect to an existing cloud-storage account (OneDrive or Google Drive) rather than having to pay for a separate cloud service.
Does anyone have any suggestions that might fill these needs? It seems to be point 6 that's my biggest stumbling block.

Thanks in advance....

Misses point six but has its own 8gb of storage onboard. I’ve found the eufy cams to be excellent quality

Why solar powered ?
How good is the Wifi in the back garden at the position you are thinking of mounting it ?

So that I never have to worry about changing the batteries. Not for a while, at least. The wi-fi is good in the garden, so that shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks. :) How much footage would the 8GB storage contain? Would I have to clear it down frequently?

Personally I wouldn't want to store any CCTV footage in the cloud.

Any particular reason? I'm not intending to be doing anything untoward.

My question was really regarding about not WiFi or battery . Always better to wire them if at all possible
