Do you have a listing of all the cameras in stock that are black?

I just got this delivered from Andy yesterday, and what a great experience! Shipped on a Friday, and was in my hands on Monday. The camera is BEAUTIFUL. My house is all natural cedar, and it has weathered to a dark chocolate brown color. White would stand out like a sore thumb, in fact, I have a wireless Arlo camera (junk for my needs), that I purchased a black rubber skin for to make that one black. I was going to plasti-dip spray any white camera that I bought, but this saved me the effort.

By the way, compared to the system of dome cams in my office, this one is a tank. Solid metal. Can’t wait to get it running. Thanks again Andy!

PS DATE OF MANUFACTURE IS OCTOBER 2018, which is THIS MONTH. Can’t get better than that!

Now you need to plasti-dip that light!
They installed the lights prior to me getting to choose the color that I wanted but when you see the entire house the white doesn't look as bad as it does zoomed into it like that. heh

Did you do the install? Was it hard to get the wires to the end of the soffits?

Yes I installed them, I had the home pre-wired while building the home hence the only reason it was a quick and easy install for me. I also had a conduit ran from the basement to the attic just in case I ever needed to run anything else or add more cables/cams.

That was very smart. Especially the attic to basement conduit. it's a nightmare for me to get to the attic from the basement.
You just have to cut a few holes in the drywall in walls that line up between levels. It's not that bad in most cases.
I'd try to cut my holes in the backs or sides of closets where you can be sloppier with your drywall patches or use some other removable access panel.

Oh, and I covered the mounting holes I’m going to use with little pieces of masking tape that I didn’t remove yet. Those areas will be white but not visible under the camera

They look very good and discreet in black colour! I spray painted a 5231, but it didn't really look too good. It is scratching off and the white is bleeding through.
