This is awesome! The Dahua HDW5231R-Z's are the cameras I've been looking at installing at the house I'm building. I was thinking of setting them up in exactly the same location as you are here; right under the soffit in the corners. Is that a separate mounting base that you have there, or is the camera attached directly to the soffit? It looks great!Here's my mounting point to give some perspective on distance, etc.
During the framing stage on my house, I am planning on running my CAT6 to all potential camera locations, even though I am not 100% on all locations. I figured I could mount a camera to test a location, then keep it or move it. At the locations I decide against, I can leave in a rubber hole plug or something similar that will hide the opening with the wire stuffed up inside the soffit. That way if I ever change my mind, I can pull the plug and attach my camera.
Now that you've had your camera installed this way for a few months, what do you think? Anything you would do differently?
