    HI All

    Does anyone know if this is a) available and b) would fit? I need to wall mount one of these cameras on brick and can't get the camera cables into the wall, will need to use conduit.

    Thanks!

    I just recently went through this for some installations that were against a brown/bronze trim. I ended up just getting some high temp/outdoor rated rattle cans and prepped the boxes and cameras before installation. Takes a little bit to mask everything off on the camera, but the finished product worked well.

    PFA137 can work on the vertical wall no problem.

    Not sure about the PFA139 you refer to, but the PFA137 would definitely fit a 5231-ZE and Andy has them in black.

    Paint works well to have the various junction boxes match the wall / trim better.

    Additional notes:

    1) Remember PFA137 and PFA139 fit different turret cameras ( those with 3 screw bases )
    2) PFA130E should also work for turrets which have 3 screws on the base.
    3) PFB203W and PFB204W also work for the respective turrets with 3 screw bases. HOWEVER, they are not junction boxes and thus do not have the appropriate holes for 1/2" conduit.

    Some new turrets are coming with 4 screw bases ( see some of the starlight+ 4MP turret reviews ). So that sort of messes with my planned upgrade for a camera position or 2. argh...

    There are also squarish junction boxes, such as the PFA121 which are typically combined with the 4 screw base cameras. There is a model of that for 3 screw based cameras - and will work with the 3 screw based turrets ( Lorex carries 3 colors of each - and at times they will have a 25% OFF discount code.. normally only 10-15% off, but during big sale times they even do free shipping and 25% off.. like around BF-cyberweek )
