Nest Cam with floodlight (wired) Mounting Height

I am installing the Nest Cam with floodlight (wired) in a new location. How high should it be off the ground? I can mount it anywhere between 12 feet and 25 feet. 2) It also has a motion sensor is there a recommended height for that?

Anywhere between those heights will be fine but just keep in mind the motion sensor has a 25-foot range at 180 degrees. So the higher you mount the camera, the less sensitive the motion sensor may be for motion immediately below the sensor however it really won’t affect performance all that much at 12 to 25 feet height.

 

Personally, I’d mount it around that 12 foot mark. If you ever need to get access to the camera, I would think it’s much easier to get a ladder up to 12 feet.
