Hey All,
Attaching a couple of pics of front of the house, requesting recommendations for two dahua 5231R installs.

My thoughts were to put them slightly above the garage lights so I can fish the wire through the existing lighthole.

Feedback/recommendations requested.

What are your thoughts about having a camera in the corner vs above the center of the door? I'm tentatively planning on having a camera above the left corner, aimed toward the right. I'll have another camera around the corner, on the side of the garage and aimed left to cover the yard there.

I would place them at the red circles I added.
The locations in yellow would have the lights in the field of view.

Thanks for that, @looney2ns.
At night, when the lights go on, I am assuming it only helps the builtin IRs, right ?
I got a bucket with sand and 2x4x10 ready for a trial run, will give that a shot.

Two cams on each side of the door, with their views criss-crossing each other.
