Recessed wall/ceiling intallation



Once POE and RTSP are implemented, this would be the perfect camera to shove inside the wall. A simple old-work style box would be sufficient with some way to hold the camera.

The advantage would best be realized if the mount came with a wide angle lens, or if a new version of the camera were to include such a lens. However, wide angle lenses admittedly reduce the quality of the capture of an individual person or item.


I don’t know if it needs a wider angle. It already does 110 degrees (120 on the pan cam). That is pretty wide and if mounted correctly will cover most rooms. But a mount would be neat. Personally I think I’d rather see a traditional dome mount for something like that but that’s just me and I could change my mind if I see something more functional. Perhaps something similar to the wall mount for the Aeotec / Aeon Labs multisensor.


If anyone has a solution for mounting a v2, recessed inside the wall near a door that would be great. It would be awesome to have a plate to be able to mount


How about using a remodeling electrical box. Put a softer plastic blank cover plate on it and drill a hole in it for the camera lens to look through.


Do you have access to a 3D printer? I can design a wall mount for it If you want. I currently have most of it done as is. You’ll just have to tell me how you want the cord to come out.


@SourPickel Oh cool, do you have a Thingiverse profile?


@Loki Hmm… Might take a look at that, what kind of faceplate would you suggest?



For the cover plate, make sure it’s nylon (unbreakable) which would be much easier to drill without shattering. I’d use a step drill bit such as this:
