Description

I figured I'd give this a shot. The FLEX cameras aren't rated to be installed outdoors upside down, but this is in reference to the pole or wall mounting configurations. Now that the ceiling mounts are available I figured I'd pick one up and see how this install works out.

Looks sharp and solid. 
Planning to do a similar mount with 2 FLex back2back, taking over from the 2 G3 Egg. (That useless with IR reflections into the plastic cover)
Only thing is that the mounts are not avalible in EU yet!

Curious how this turns out. I have 2 of these in the mail and would love to mount these in this way if the camera holds up. What is the weather like where you live?

I live in Alberta Canada, so we get temperature ranges from -30 Celcius in the winter with lots of snow/hail/sleet/rain to +30 and dry hot in the summer.

 

It's been down to -10 so far, with about 1 foot of snow fall over the last few days since installing. Holding up well so far!

Is that the ubiquiti mount or a 3d printed version ?

Gotcha. I'm down in Houston so I'm more concerned about our 100+ Farenheit summer days with 95+% humidity after a random rain shower. Wish there was a way to put a drain on the top for this mounting option without voiding any warranty.

 @Psudo hey I ordered mine off German ebay a couple weeks ago. Downside is, that I was able to get only a 10 pack, but I needed only 5... So you can either order there, or hit me up, I have extras.

Here is mine with a 3d printed mount posted here.

@AndreyFluff

Thanks for the offer.

I did manage to get a pair from fellow countryman that sold them in single units.

@bennymundzI used the actual UBNT mount. They ship to Canada as well as the USA now directly from the UBNT store.

 

I won't be ordering directly again though, UPS brokerage fees and shipping were insane. But hey, I wanted it NOW. I'll be waiting for ubnt.ca to get stuff in stock from now on before ordering any more UBNT products.

I am building a new home and want to install cameras under my vinyl soffit as well.  How That much IR reflections do you get off the white soffit?
