I apologize again for the confusion @DalTxJim! The Floodlight Cams are capable of being mounted on a ceiling, however, we always want our neighbors to keep in mind that a horizontal mounting environment can often make angling the camera for optimal detection tough in some areas, depending on what part of your property you want to monitor.
The lights are adjustable, and the bracket is designed to be able to accommodate this mounting, so it will work as expected, as long as you consider motion zones, field of view, and obstructions that might hinder these things.
We'll be sure to send this feedback to the team to work on getting this added to more of our help center articles for the Floodlight Cam.
This statement just amplifies the fact that it would be very simple to also have a Ceiling Mount specifically for the Floodlight Cam
@Marley_Ring, the ceiling mount accessory you linked to is not intended for the Spotlight Cam. The best that can be done to gain exteneded viewing range when mounted horizontally (ceiling) with Ring's current mounting base design is to modify the ball portion of the mounting base as shown in the attached photos.
It is my opinion Ring Engineering and R&D groups have really dropped the ball on this design flaw.
I have no idea why Ring is not capable of FIXING this issue. Would it really be that big of a deal to come out with a 2nd mount that would allow the Floodlight Cam camera to be placed properly when mounted on an eave??? Seems like a missed opportunity to #1 make customers happy and #2 have another source of income and #3 sell more Floodlight cams. Instead, Ring seems to enjoy ignorning what the customer is asking for.
According to Ring, they state the eave type of mounting is possible, but not recommended! Their reasoning, unless it has changed recently, was that you couldn't adjust the camera to a proper angle to have proper motion alerts. In reality, Ring simply needs to either make an adjustment to the mounting bracket, or, do what they've done with other products and make an adapter. I purchased a Floodlight cam and returned it for this very reason, and that was over 6 months ago. Plenty of people are asking for a "fix", but Ring ignores it.
