I wanted a stationary camera on my detached garage facing my house but could not find
a housing that gave me what I wanted…
Full up/down/right/felt adjustment, self-contained, ability to program after camera was
mounted in the housing, and lastly cheap…
So i made my own…
Amazon has a 3 pack of wyze cam metal wall mount brackets. I paid $12 for the 3.
One pack of four 1/4x20 nuts and a pack of 1/4" fender washers at Lowe’s.
The 1/4" fender washer is for more stability of the plastic inside the rear of the housing.
I had a 10’ braided usb cable that just reached the outlet for my garage door opener.
One 32oz. square bottle of hydrogen peroxide from Dollar General $1.00.
A small piece of “good” double-sided tape to mount the camera on the very top of the enclosure
so any water that gets in would save the camera fro sitting in it.
I set up the camera to my network, added a 32gb sd card, cut a small X slot in the middle of the back to push the bracket screw through.
Then I mounted the bracket with on the back and bottom of the enclosure for the usb cable to exit pushed the cable thru and hooked it
to the camera then moved the camera back and forth until I found the maximum setback depth with none of the enclosure showing any side of the camera lens.
Mounting the camera to the top of the enclosure serves 2 purposes; damage from camera sitting in water and the bottom of the camera is easily moved around to push the setup button if you must re=set the camera.
Here a couple not-so-good pics to show what I did.
I am looking for a sturdier enclosure but for now this functions well.
FYI… I have a motion light on my garage that is very bright so I wanted a light-proof enclosure.
A transparent one would have created many aggravating changes in lighting at night for my situation only to the front was the answer.
so having light enter…
Sorry I didn’t paint this to make it look better, my next version will lok decent… I was more interested in utilitarian rather than appealing to the eye…
