security camera mount question
 

Has anyone mounted a security camera under the eaves or where the
soffit vents are?  It seems that most cameras are setup for wall or
surface mounting and not upside down (like under the eave).

Brackets are available for both and some cameras are also switchable
electronically.

or orentation.   I used standard Sched 40 plastic pipe.   I could make up a
little writeup about making them if anyone is interested.

Yes, you can do this.  It's actually a fairly common requirement.  Many CCTV
cameras have threaded holes for mounting on top and bottom.  Most bullet
cameras have a gimbal on the end, allowing the mounting flange to swivel up,
down or sideways.  These can be mounted at almost any angle.

down the hood is upside down.  Might not be a big deal if there is a
windy rain it probably would drain away.

'sunvisor/weather hood' so it would expose that threaded hole, allowing
me to switch my mount from wall mount position to the ceiling mount
position, I believe many camera's are this way.

you will see two cameras labeled SECURITY.  The one on the left is a
commercial case that runs about $40-$50.  The round one on the right I made
with Sched 40 Plastic pipe, two Test caps, and a piece of glass.    It took
about 20 minutes to make 4 of them at a cost around $10 for all 4.
They both are mounted standard but easily changed to mount from the top.
All you need to do is put the bracket on the top.  You still mount the
camera on the bottom.    All weather proof and you can easily add a heater
if necessary.
If you would like step by step construction info, just email me using the
link on the first page of the site and I will send it back to anyone that
asks.
