Looks like a very nice solution mike. thanks for posting.
Thanks, I like the PVC plastic because I didn't have to paint it and it was freezing out when I installed it and latex paint would have frozen before it dried. The material was left over from a repair I did on my shed. PVC is great to replace soft wood in places that are very damp. I used it to replace a rotten fascia board.
I think that it is a compromise and looked better without the added base but it made lots of room for the splices and gave the cam a lot wider view. In the end it was all for nothing because Nutone has not answered my last two emails and I've spent too much time on this project already. This is the second Knock that has died here in a month or two so I think that I'm just about to throw it in the garbage and put the mechanical doorbell switch back. I was OK with being their test bed for a while but it's getting old.
