EDIT 7/12/19: I just noticed this embossed on the mounting plate. It does indeed fit a single or double gang box.

Ok, so I struggled on deciding how to show off the features of this camera. This is the way I cam up with, I did a screen capture with VLC.

When the PTZ moves, I have clicked on a spot in one of the other 3 camera views, that triggers the PTZ to go to that same spot.

You can also notice that I draw red squares that cause the camera to pan and zoom into the spot I outlined.

I have all four of the cameras working in:
Blue Iris
TinyCampro
Chrome with IE tab.
It tries to work without the plugin, but I've had no success, just get a black screen.
All you need to do is to change the channel number to the camera that you want to add to BI or Tinycam.

Note I added another picture to the OP, that shows that it will fit on a single or double gang box.

Don't judge my junky ass garage. ;)

The camera is mounted at 8ft, measured to the base of the cam to the floor. I hope these videos make sense to everyone. I would guess in a store setting or such, that it would be better mounted at 10-12ft from the floor. YMMV.

So what are we going to call this one? The zebra?

And since Dahua seems to keeps increasing the amount of sensors in the cameras, when can we expect this to be released?

Is there an outdoor version of this camera or something like it? Would work great at a roundabout.

If you use a double gang box to attach the B360 plate to the garage ceiling, what method is there to orient the three fixed direction cameras? Is it simply that you get what you get? I was going to put a single turret camera located to one side of the (yet to be built) garage, but now thinking about using one of these and presume that it is a 120 degree offset "Y" pattern, and all I can do is chose to attach it with the base of the "Y" to the north or south (if that makes sense). Thinking that if I put it about where the windshield of one of the parked cars might be located (on the blue prints of the garage) and guess what the three fixed cameras will cover for side doors, etc. Thanks.

The orientation of the mounting plate determines what the fixed cams look at.

Yes. And the mounting plate is attached to a junction box attached to a stud on the garage ceiling? Or is there another way to attach the plate to the drywall ceiling such that I can optimize the orientation?

Other way would be to mount a cover plate on the box, then drill holes in the plate that will allow you to align the cam the way you like.

A month later...do you still dabble with this camera? I am thinking of pulling the trigger for this. However, reading up on your Boobie Cam review, there are issues with the channel selection and one of the cam's unable to motion trigger.
I assume, this would be a 3 channel camera?

4 Channel. I've had no issues with it.
The boobie cam is mounted outdoors, I use Blue Iris, so it works fine for me.

A true 360 degree camera? Offers panoramic 360 degrees :D

A Starlight version would be nice

@looney2ns what does this look like mounted to the ceiling? If you still have it up can you add a pic?
How far soes it hang down from the ceiling? (Overall height of the device?)
