This clarifies whether the camera is wall-mounted or mounted on a separate pole. This additionally allows the rendering of mount-specific overlay graphics. In case a photograph is specified through the use of image=*, others can use that to fill in this tag if it is not present yet. Please leave suggestions for the terms mount, wall and pole, especially in case there are terms already in use to define such a characteristic. (View the Talk page section on this issue)
