So far, so good. The bracket is pretty sturdy and easy to install. It has survived a couple of windy days so far. If you plan to purchase outdoor Foscam cameras, save yourself the hassle and frustration and purchase this bracket along with the camera. The plastic mounting brackets that come with Foscam cameras are worthless. The screw attached to the plastic bracket broke off after I applied a little pressure on it while pivoting the camera sideways.

So, in a way, giving this mounting bracket (from Foscam) a higher rating is also a condemnation of the plastic mounting bracket that comes with the cameras (also from Foscam). Wait a minute! Both products are from Foscam. Hmmm. i.n.t.e.r.e.s.t.i.n.g !

I have three of these now and am using none of them. Two came with my two cameras and I bought one extra thinking it was different than the one which came with each camera. My two cameras are mounted underneath overhangs using drop mounts, and this bracket simply cannot do that. There are other brackets available which do. So three useless mounting brackets at about $19 each is a big waste of my money.

the mounting bracket has two holes, but they don't line up with foscam cameras which is strange since this is sold by foscam. you will only be able to fasten your camera to this bracket with one screw.

Most of the outdoor foscam camera come with an arm. Make sure you need this one before you order it.

Otherwise the arm works great.

The Foscam website said explicitly that this arm is compatible with the FI9802W model. It isn't. The two bolt holes do not line up correctly with the sockets on the camera. Foscam customer support said that the camera had changed recently, but we originally bought the camera in 2013. When does something like this change without a model number change? The arm is sturdier than the original cone mount and works ok with just one bolt, but we would have preferred the security of two bolts. We bought this as a replacement for the original cone mount on which the camera mounting bolt snapped spontaneously. Fortunately we had added an eye bolt in the top mounting socket and a safety chain so the camera didn't fall to the ground and smash when the bolt failed.

I recently bought a Foscam F19804W that has a similar looking mount that is great. It adjusts every which way. I have an older F18905W that has a terrible mount so I bought this one thinking it was the same as on my new camera. It's not. It is sturdier than my old one, but not nearly as adjustable as the new one. Also the holes don't match the layout of the old camera so I can only mount it to the camera with one screw. As my rating implies, it's ok, but not what I thought I was getting. At least the screws they supplied matched the screw holes on my camera.

I bought this thinking that it was more heavy duty bracket for my Foscam 9805w. Turns out it is the exact same bracket, so it got returned. As others have mentioned it is really only meant to be hung from a wall, not a ceiling or flat surface. This would be the replacement bracket you are looking for if you managed to break your original one with the 9805w. Note this will not work without some substantial drilling for the Foscam 9821 or 8910.

This product gets 5 stars because they are exactly what they are advertised to be. Unfortunately I did not need them. I ordered them with the Foscam FI9805W because the pictures of the FI9805W showed a different universal mounting arm.
Just so there is no confusion:
THESE ARE THE EXACT SAME MOUNTING ARMS THAT COME PACKAGED WITH THE FI9805W IP CAMERA.
You do not need these mounting arms if you are purchasing the FI9805W.

My mounting arm didn't have the hardware with it. Also turned out it wouldn't work where I mounted the camera so I used the bracket that came with the camera. Reviews trashing the bracket with the camera were out of proportion. Not as sturdy as I'd like but it's ample for the job. By the time I mounted the camera I had trashed the box, etc. and it was too late to return.

Accidentally bought the arm, thinking the camera didn't come with a mounting bracket. It turned out to work much better than the one included with the camera. Will be buying more of these.
