Hey @DonC! Feeding the wire through a ceiling or overhang would be entirely up to you and the environment. If you are inquiring as to whether the ceiling mount will automatically accomplish this or create a hole to run chord, it does not.
Check out our Spotlight Cam Wired Ceiling Mount page, which contains an image example of mounting. This will show the wire is looped upwards towards the ceiling and run along the ceiling mount. To accomplish this best, I recommend using the provided wire clips.
