You can mount the camera however you want, perpendicularly on a wall or eave and yes, you can swivel the camera up/down and left/right. I actually have mine tilted slightly right to get the entire frontal view of my property. I personally didn’t try mounting horizontally so can’t speak to that. But what I can say is there’s no option in the app to flip the video 180 degrees like the arlo app so that might might not work with the ring (yet). Hope this helps!
