Can direct sunlight damage the cctv system?

I'm partway through the process of installing a cctv video surveillance system for my girlfriend. Last day, I mounted it in a location that points across the entrance to her garden. The camera shows the view of the area. There is an open sky at the top of the scene.
Now, at this time of the year, there is no direct sun over there. But in the coming months, I fear that the sun will be setting exactly in that part of the sky. Can direct sunlight damage the cctv system?

It's unlikely a system designed for outdoor use would be damaged by sunlight. It could potentially cause issues with the video feed and make images difficult to interpret though.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite
