I have the new outdoor camera and have mounted it using the magnet on top so to better place the camera detection zone which appears to be permanently fixed right now. This appears to be working okay and while my detections are a little hit-and-miss I haven’t finished tweaking it yet. However mounting the camera in this fashion is left the bottom exposed with the brass threads showing. The unfinished bottom of the camera is visible to anyone who walks up my front sidewalk. Is there a cover that is made for this that can snap in to make it look a little more attractive?
I don’t think so but you probably could cut out a round plug using a piece of white foam board or styrofoam. Cut it slightly bigger so it will be a tight fit.
Another option would be picking up a white disc-shaped magnet to place there.
Aside from the issue of finding the proper size, those type magnets also tend to be sold in multi-packs, not singly.
Thank you for the ideas. By mounting the camera this way so the fixed detection zone is at the bottom of the camera I have found detections to be working much better. So far its caught a few delivery people and the lawn mower kid. Continuing to test but as of right now I’m thinking of getting some more of these cameras to cover all sides of the house. On the house we thought ahead and had110 outlets placed in the soffits for various things, can we run these cameras on a 5volt charger? If so I might never need to crawl up a ladder to recharge.
