I bought a Vivotek camera - FD8151V for outdoor use. It's to be mounted outside but the Cat5e wire is comes out of a gang box. The camera is not meant to be mounted over a gang box just over a small hole where the wire comes out, so it doesn't fit properly and leaves gaps (picture of wire below).

What are my options here? Do I just put a plate over it and mount it on that? Is there a 3rd party mount that would work? The manufacturer offered no solution.

I would return the camera and get a bullet style camera to mount over a plain wallplate. Or mount that dome camera on the wallplate, either way would be ok but I cant be positive without seeing the camera.
