Eaves mounting the floodlight cam results in the cable entry coming out of the “front” of the mounting plate, ie towards you rather than away from you. This seems incorrect. I get that if it’s wall mounted you want the cable entry to be at the bottom to reduce the risk of water ingress, but this doesn’t work when eaves mounting.
When installing the mounting plate there will be an arrow on it to indicate where it is pointing when feeding wires through. For an eave installation, it is recommended to have this arrow pointing towards the wall. Check out our installation Help Center article below for a visual and more tips for mounting this way.
