DIY OG magnet mount work around

My door has a metal header which made it drop dead simple to use Wyze cameras… at least until the OG. With metal headers, screw mounting the OG was a non-starter. Light bulb went off after about a week… I have salvaged magnets from dead hard drivers. The plastic OG mount base has some metal inside it. The hard drive magnet is both thin and strong enough to hold the OG upside down.


Great Idea. I bought a bunch of circular-disk-shaped neodymium magnets a while back for really cheap. Makes sense just to put double-sided tape or glue one of those on there and then it has a magnetic mount.

Great solution! I have some RE Magnets that I tried to use. Unfortunately they couldn’t handle the weight of the stacked cams. There just wasn’t enough metal in the cam base. Modifications were necessary to attach several V3 metal mounting disks to the base of the cam so there was enough metal for the magnets to grab and support both cams.


My non-adhesive solution for magnetic Wyze OG where everything is securely fastened. Magnetic bases are extras from fridge hooks previously bought.

Camera can be tilted up/down by adjusting magnetic attachment positions.


Works for Wyze Cam Pan v3 mounting bracket, too.
