Hi folks,

 

I have a few questions prior to buying regarding the two camera mounts below:

 

Table and ceiling mount:

https://www.arlo.com/en-us/products/arlo/table-ceiling-mount.aspx#VMA1100

 

Wall mount:

https://www.arlo.com/en-us/products/arlo/wall-mount.aspx#VMA1300

 

Are these compatible with Arlo Pro 2 cameras?  I haven't seen a photo of the back of the cameras so I have no idea about the magnetic attachment capability.  

 

Is the material of the spherical mounts magnetic or steel to attach to a magnet in the camera?  And if so, can you easily position the camera in 3 dimensions by moving the camera so that it contacts the sphere in different places on the sphere's surface?  If anyone has done this, does the camera remain in position?  You know, magnets are interesting creatures.

They will both work  for you. I have both models and use them with the Pro2. The magnet seems to be in the camera and it is easy to position the camera on the mounts and get a good range of movement.
