Wall mount issues

Post by drhans »

I've got a IP8M-MT2544EW camera and the corresponding AMCPFB203W wall mount. When the camera is mounted to wall mount, is there supposed to be a large exposed slot where the camera flange extends past the edge of the wall mount? Seems like this would be an ingress point for water and spiders.

Hello and Welcome to the forum

I am not sure where you got the Mount from was it Amcrest or a 3rd party? From what I read in the Manual for the camera the outside is 122mm and from what I can find the mount is to house a 122mm camera and so in theory that camera should be right to the edge.. Maybe that camera you have is from a Different Generation and has a bigger housing then what it was first released with some 2 years ago or so.. Might have been the part was mis labeled if it was from Amcrest..
Thanks to all that has helped out others on the Forum
