How to mount Blink XT2 Camera without drilling holes for screws?

Does anybody have any ideas? I need to mount them so just leaving them on a shelf isn't an option. I don't want to drill any holes.

edit: I am going to be mounting 3 on a painted wall and 2 of them on the ceiling.

TAPE? VELCRO? GLUE? SALIVA?

Why don't you want to drill holes? What is the surface you're trying to mount to?

I'm assuming it's all drywall then. I would try the 3M Command Strips for Large Picture frames. They can hold a considerable amount of weight. If that doesn't work, drilling a hole in drywall shouldn't be too hard to patch up. Just spackle, sand and repaint.

3M command hooks.

Available at your local hardware store. Some dollaramas too.

3M says they don't damage paint or the gyproc, but in my experience, when they get old, you gotta be more careful when removing.
Don't lift them, pull them (parallel to the wall!)

I removed my old intercom doorbell and used the same screw holes.

if it is for indoors try Velcro tape, although not sure if it will damage/mark up walls

Use 3-4 dabs of silicone on the sides and double sided tape in the center to tack it into place before the silicone dries. This way you can easily remove it without damaging the paint or wall.
Double sided arylic tape from 3M is another option, but they are expensive and I would'nt trust it if mounting high up because if it falls ...it's bye bye camera ...LoL
