Frustrating yes - cannot rotate the image? vs other camera options, where the stick up cam can only be mounted right side up. To be able to hang upside down would be able to be mounted higher, more secure outside, but it understandably changes the function angle of the motion sensor. So, take a deep breath. This camera has an amazing image w audio! and at this price point, totally worth the only drawback with the limiting mount/no rotation. Get creative with the mount, and move forward. Ring makes great products and is a reliable and safe service provider for these sensitive services.
