    Hi guys,
    I want to mount a couple of cameras on the walls of my house.
    What is the best way to do it without unsightly cabling and junction boxes showing?
    The cameras come with an 8" cable/plugs.

    1: Drill a big hole through the wall and mount the camera over it to cover it up. The connectors go inside the hole.

    2: Drill a smaller hole for your cables and fix a junction box (IP rated adaptable plastic box) over the hole. Mount the camera on the lid of the box and put the connections inside it.

    If it's a mini-dome-style camera, you might have room to leave the connectors inside the base... You could also look at metal conduit boxes, depending on the size and mounting arrangements of the camera.

    Look out for how other people have done it! ;)
