Retail Customer Requires Super Low Profile Flush Mount Camera

We have a high-end retail customer who requires cameras to cover the store and back room areas. Aesthetics are very important, so we have proposed a small flush mount dome camera. However, even though the profile/footprint of the camera is very small, it was rejected.

They are telling us that the landlord has requested a 'flatter' camera with 'no dome'. Some criteria they've come back to us with include:

  • Camera no greater than 3" in diameter
  • No more than 2" high (what I think they mean here is that they don't want more than 2" of the camera sticking out of the ceiling)
  • Must be ceiling mount

To make matter more difficult, the ceiling is custom wood, so 'blending' into the ceiling will be difficult. The smoke detectors, lights, etc. that they have in this ceiling are white.

I even considered a pinhole type of camera, but the views cannot be straight down, which will require some of the camera sticking out of the ceiling and pointing in a direction other than straight down.

Any ideas or thoughts that anyone has seen it the past is much appreciated.
