We live in a condo, I wanted a smart doorbell but couldn't drill into the metal doorframe or the stucco of the exterior wall. So I made this wall mount that could be affixed to a flat surface using mounting adhesive or glues. The photos have a lot of pollen covering the Arlo.
We have already invested in the Arlo security systems and this is a nice addition, especially as sometimes we can't get down to the door to answer, and also we disconnect the original doorbell when it is the baby's nap time. Having the doorbell call our phones is a nice advantage and it pairs with the security camera, and now we don't use the original building doorbell.
I designed this to be printed using SLA or FDM printing types. Although I did the original print using SLA (as I just go the printer and was excited to test it out). I would recommend using PETG if using FDM printing, it stands up to UV and temp a little better than PLA outdoors.

------------------------------------------------------------ If you don't have or are considering an SLR printer I've been surprised how easy it was to get started and successfully print. Way easier then FDM printing. Anycubic worked really well for me overall and decent build quality and had my first print 30 min after unboxing.
