Hi guys. It has been a long time since my last time around. My whole cam installation have been in hold for a while due to a lot of work and personal stuff. However, I was finally able to mount almost all my cams.

I came back due to having one issue. Look at the picture attached. One of the spots that the electrician left is too close to a flood light. Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

I'd use a 1/2" PVC "LB" condulet and a camera junction box.

Using a threaded nipple and lock rings, tie camera junction box to the LB's hole on long end. Thread a close nipple into bottom hole of LB. Chip out enough stucco in the wall hole to fit that LB's bottom close nipple into it. Place LB into wall hole, pull cable into LB splice area temporarily then all the way into the camera junction box. Mount camera junction box on wall to the left with expansion screw anchors. When all is sturdy caulk where the LB goes into wall with outdoor-rated clear silicone seal.

When caulk is cured, mount and wire in cam on the cam junction box. Use all PVC condulet parts, including nipples, so rust won't dribble down the side of the house one day.

EDIT: not knowing the current height, you may want to mount above the flood light as much as possible to prevent glare into the cam. Just rotate the LB up to maybe vertical. It looks that slope on the wall would keep you from mounting below the flood light.
