From this site you can detect meteors even in the daytime and even if it is cloudyIt uses the reflection of radar waves to detect them.

This is a live feed (approx 5 seconds delay) from a system I have at home which is detecting meteors using radar.

I gave a talk to the Baker Street Irregular Astronomers in June 2020 which explains it:

I don't always notice if the streaming fails (all too common!)  Please let me know

Other resources for people interested in setting up their own system.
