    I am the proud owner of (2) RLC-510A cameras. I'm curious to know how other people have mounted their bullet cameras outside.
    For example

      * Did anyone mount the camera(s) on vinyl siding? On brickwork?
      * If so, how? And what additional hardware did you need, if any?

    For me, having three pigtails but only one cutout in the mounting plate is confusing. What am I supposed to do with the remaining cables? Currently, I'm using this to hold all the cables. In the cap, I cut out a hole to pass the cables through. Then the bundle of cables are inside, along with the ethernet coming in from the side. The camera itself is mounted flush on the cap.
    This setup seems logical to me, but I could very well be missing some other setup that is way more obvious once I see.

    I chose to mount mine in a similar fashion. I found some white, weatherproof boxes on Amazon that were predrilled and tapped with the mounting hole pattern and with a center hole for the cables to pass through.

    I did the same as what you used on a few cameras but ended up getting the metal boxes for the rest. They are a bit pricey in comparison to the plastic boxes but for simplicity I just added it to the cost of the cameras while on sale. From the accessories tab.

    Just toss the mounting screws that come with them and get some stainless steel or galvanized screws. For brick use some plastic anchors and use a masonry drill bit

    The box I used is this: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B08742VFPT
    At the time I got them they were $10 each; more than I wanted to pay, but they're white to match the cameras and house, so the wife objects less to them. The base of the B800 cameras fits one of the hole patterns provided. It also covers the majority of the unused holes, but not all. I attached them to stuccoed walls under the eaves of my house.
