Thanks for the quick reply, but you are mistaken.

See my images below.
When the template is placed on a surface with the printed side facing you, the hole for the wire is located at approximately 108 degrees from top-dead-center (about 3:30 if the template were a clock face).
When the camera is placed on top of the template, the wire is actually located at approximately 72 degrees from top-dead-center (about 2:30 if the template were a clock face).

If you flip the template so the printed side is facing the mounting surface and rotate the template 180 degrees, then the hole for the wire will match the actual location of the wire on the camera.
But your instructions (/faq/mount-reolink-ip-camera-rlc-422/) show the printed side facing the installer. So please either correct your instructions or correct your template.

Also, to say the diameter of the circle on the template ”doesn't matter” is very short-sighted. Before I ever took the camera outside to the mounting location, I took the printed template cut down to the diameter of the printed circle. Later I realized my initial review for placement using the template was ”off” because the diameter of the printed circle did not match the actual diameter of the camera.
