Floodlight V2 Junction Box

What outside mounted junction boxes are you using?

Edit for clarity:
I am more just looking for what other people have used and their experiences.
An outdoor, external/not recessed junction box similar to HERE (Amazon Link)

I just am not a fan of the way they mount to your surface with the outside tabs instead of somewhere inside the box.

The floodlight base is circular, it matches my round junction box.

That is not what I asked…

Need to be more specific. Some junction boxes are externally mounted to the exterior wall, some are recessed. I have both types and some are round, some are square. How do you plan on mounting yours?

I say what kind in my OP. Outside mounted, is that not the same as external mounted?
I am looking for whatever works with the Floodlight V2.

Semantics… you could construe “outside” as opposite of inside/interior or external/not-recessed. For example, I have a floodlight mounted inside a large garage attached to an outdoor junction box that is not recessed. You could say that is an outside junction box installed inside.

If you already own the Floodlight v2, take a look at the quick start guide. If not, you can view the mounting method to junction box here:

Got it, thank you. :+1: I moved your topic to the Cameras category and changed floodlight tag to floodlight-v2. Hopefully some users can share photos of their installations.

@MintyElder – where are you? Local regulations can have an impact.

I ended up using an Dahua PFA139 Junction box. It is smaller than the floodlight base but it still seats around the floodlight gasket creating a seal. It is pretty low profile as you can see in the pic which I like. It also mounted with 3 holes inside the box instead of 2 tabs outside the box like a lot of the junction boxes you see at big box stores.

They sell both types with or without tabs. Buy the one you are happy with.
