Security options for exterior outlet


Hi,
This seems like the best resource to answer this question.
I have more outlets than I need on the exterior of my home. They are all weather-spring covered GFI outlets with a bezel on the vinyl sides of my home.

I have some large trees and I may eventually install a motion light and/or camera in one of the trees looking back at the home.
Instead of drilling through my basement I was wondering if there is an exterior box available I could swap out that would give an attachment for rigid conduit in which I would run the (basically tamper-free) electric, underground until near the base of the tree. Drawing below...thanks!

They do make extension boxes that you can use.
The are open on the front and the back, and allow you more wiring room and to add conduit.

Seems like one must spend some more bucks on this to complete...
