yea i got this too not too sure if i like it i kind want flush fit But if i do go with that route i can hide the thick wire dongle and only drill small hole through the stuccoIf you are dead set on that camera, you could get a dome wall mount, then paint the wall mount and camera all the same color as your stucco. This will also allow you to drill a much smaller hole and contain your connections inside the top of the mount.

Yea thank you for your input.If you are mounting a single camera I would go with spot 2. This will assure even coverage across the driveway. By putting a camera to one side or the other you reduce the coverage distance and identification ability of that camera from the further distance of the driveway. Spot 2 will give you the most even coverage across the entire driveway and up each side of the drive (to side of house and to front door). Now, if your goal is to more protect the side of the house because you clearly have a camera in front on the front door side, I would consider location 1.
Honestly, it's really about what your end coverage and desired goals are. When people post a single pic they get 10 different opinions (while some are wrong) most are not, because the answers they are getting are based on that persons assessment and assumption of what the posters desired outcome is - which, again, if not outlined isn't wrong.
Do yourself a favor and study these: Cliff Notes and Wiki.What is the best way to drill a hole on stucco finished homes? Planning to mount a camera above garage door there is a plywood behind stucco. I took pictures before house was finished so i have basic idea what is behind the walls. Here are the pics
