I would like to see an adapter plate that would allow cameras to be mounted to standard electrical junction boxes, e.g., 4" octagon boxes or 4" round boxes. There are several benefits...
@kevin_603403140067368 It's not just the Duo PoE. I'm bench testing a Duo 2 PoE, a RLC-811A, and a RLC-822A for a home we're building, and all three expect you to run the cable "down the wall". Based on the camera photos on the website, you are expected to run the cables for all of the cameras exposed.What also disappoints me is that the cameras don't consider the possibility that standard electrical junction boxes may already be installed in the soffits/eaves/walls/etc. that contain a POE LAN cable, and all that is needed is some way to mount the camera to the junction box (and, of course, the camera base needs to cover the box). I'm building a new home and trying to prewire a lot of places around the exterior perimeter of the house (eaves and gable end walls) where I think I may want to mount a camera, but haven't found a way to do this. If the cameras could mount to a junction box, I would run a LAN cable to the junction box, then put a $.99 cover over it until I was ready to install a camera.From what I have found, Reolink is not alone in this shortcoming. I haven't found any similar consumer grade cameras that can mount to a standard junction box. I guess the manufacturers think that if I am buying consumer grade security cameras instead of the high-end cameras, I must not care about how the installation looks.Regards,JL
