Mounting a surveillance camera for the tool challenged here seeking advice?

Hi there, and if you're reading this, well thanks for reading this:) Okay.

SO..I'm going to place a small wireless surveillance cam above my front door but I'm extremely tool challenged. Even if I did own a drill I wouldn't be comfortable attempting to use it especially for this because I rent and would be scared of destroying the stucco. But I do have a new packet of JB WELD and I'm hoping that it may be able to be used in place of screws, can you tell me your thought? And also, what I plan to do is put the actual camera into a 4x4 plastic junction box facing down adhered to the stucco awning. Do you think this will work?

thanks for your feedback

    you wont be able to hold it long enough for the jb to work

    unfamiliar with stucco awning what are you fixing to if its ac sheet for a light camera drill a hole 3/16 in the center of the box get a 7 gauge panhead screw turn the clutch on the battery drill to low or use a screw driver and screw the screw in don't strip it it wont leave much of a mark when you take the camera down if its concrete do as Ryde,0n said

    just 1 screw in the centre

    if you rent, you NEED to discuss it with your landlord. you are not allowed to mount any new stuff without permission.

    Get a drill , a 1/4" masonry bit and a couple of plastic anchors .

    Line up mounting holes on your box with the location on the stucco surface , mark and drill them , insert the anchors . Then us wood or sheet metal screws through the box into the stucco/anchors .

    When you take it down , there will be little more than 2 holes smaller than the diameter of a pencil you can fill with caulk .

    Do it right the first time and you won't have to do it over .
