It can optimally be installed on a ceiling or high on a wall, away from most electrical outlets or anywhere else you need them. Engineered for compact convenience, it is only 1-inch high and 4-inches deep, with a durable metal case that is easily positioned on your desktop or a wall, using the included mounting hardware.
