Thank you for posting to CCTV Camera Pros forum. In answer to your questions:
1) I would recommend putting the camera below the light if possible.
2) A good height to mount cameras with a wide lens, 3.6mm for example, is at about 10 – 12 feet from the ground. This gives you a good viewing angle and generally is out of reach from vandals.
Please let us know if we can help further.
