The Zmodo EZCam Pro 1080p Wireless Camera comes from a company that specializes in home automation systems. They offer several home security camera models with higher end features but priced on the low end. If you’re looking for a lower priced home security camera with some useful features, this is a good one to consider.
The camera is attached to a weighted stand. The base is made of metal and there is a hinge attached to the bottom. This is a useful mount if planning to place it on a shelf or table. A set of screws and anchor bolts are included that allow attachment to a wall or ceiling. Since the camera supports flipping the image upside down, it can be attached to a ceiling using the included screws and molly bolts.
There might be a need to mount your Zmodo EZCam Pro in places other than a shelf or tablet. Perhaps, it’s inconvenience to put a pair of screws into the wall or ceiling. Let’s look at a few scenarios and recommendations.
You might want to place the Zmodo EZCam Pro pointing out a window, adhered to a mirror, attached to a kitchen cabinet, perhaps on a shelf where no shelf exists. Consider the ElHook Stick-On Nest Cam Security Video Wall Mount. That’s a photo of an Zmodo EZCam Pro atop one of these shelves during a snowy day in New Jersey. Although these are primarily marketed for a Nest Cam, these fit the Zmodo EZCam Pro almost as well. As you can see in the photo, it’s a good fit No permanent adhesive is used to stick the ElHook shelf to the flat surface. Read our article called A Wall or Window Shelf for Nest Cam and Other Home Security Cameras for more information on this mount.
A tip if you plan to use this camera for use through a window. Be sure to turn off the night vision because this will interfere by creating reflections on the glass at night. You can do that using the settings within the app. Just click on Night Vision then select Always Off. Ideally, the status light should also be turned off, however there is no way to do that on this camera which is an unfortunate omission. If it gets in the way, just place some Duct Tape over it.
How amount attaching the Zmodo EZCam Pro to the side of a filing cabinet or a refrigerator?
The Zmodo EZCam Pro weighs about 4 ounces. You can turn the bottom of the magnetic base into a magnetic mount. Adhere the Master Magnetics CA293WAX8 Magnet Fastener to the bottom of the base. Allow the adhesive strip to sit overnight before use. The magnet itself is rated to hold 7 pounds, so this 4 ounce camera will be no problem.
Obviously, logistics need to be taken into account on any of these mounting ideas as this isn’t a battery operated camera. You need to plug it in and must ensure everything is safe and that nobody will get caught up in the power cable.
