I recently purchased several of the latest 3rd generation Stick Up Cams Battery. They were working fine when I decided to place one in a different room. I did a rename in the app and it seemed to go fine. Then I noticed the next day the camera was offline. The battery had been at 90% so just in case I swapped it out for a fully charged one. Still ofline. I then pressed the orange button and reconfigured. It connected, but it then went to "updating" and hung there. I then did a factory reset and the same thing happened. Finally I did everything over - remove the camera from the app; factory reset the camera, and then add everything back. It now seems to be working fine. Fingers crossed. Is this a known issue?

I just received several 3rd generation stick up cams. For most cases the wall mounting or shelf placement is fine. But I want to mount one on the side of the house, and turn it 90 degrees (or close to it) to face the front of the house. The included mount does not have that flexibility. Amazon carries several third-party mounts but they appear quite flimsy. I saw that Ring has an optional mount and was even aluded to by a Ring community manager in another thread, but looking at it and the videos, it appears to have increased flexibility for downward facing applications, not left-to-right. I wouldn't think that this is an unusual need. Would the optional mount work, or do I need to go to one of the cheaper ones and keep my fingers crossed?
