Can My Network Camera be Mounted Outside?
FAQ #7

Not all network cameras can be mounted outside, although some can utilize a separate outdoor housing if they are not weather resistant. When properly installed, all outdoor housings are waterproof and may include a heater and fan. The housing will require a separate CCTV power supply not included with the camera or housing. Refer to the relevant model below for more information: HERE is a link to the Toshiba Camera Accessory Selector (Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet):
