Outdoor camera and doorbell not secured

I cannot seem to secure the outdoor camera, it seems to just have a magnet, and anybody can pick it up, move it or steal it. Likewise, the doorbell just requires a slight upward rug and it's removed... What am I missing? All of my other security cameras are safely affixed, but these seem to be portable and stealable, I am so confused. Help?

@natesparks the doorbell pro has a security screw in the bottom, when properly installed, will prevent the unit to be pushed up and disconnected. Agree, however, if someone is strong enough, it's gone. As far as the outdoor cameras, yes, its a magnetic mount but SS does sell a security bracket for it. Again, provided a hammer or screwdriver with the correct configuration, it is gone too.  My two outdoor cams are mounted just under my gutters. so at a minimum will need a ladder to reach up and grab them.

Others may have a better way of securing the cameras and will post here.

Great answer, I am not concerned with hammers,I am concerned with the causal grab. So I will look for and order the secure bracket (outdoor) and put in the screw(doorbell), I missed the optional install with the screw. Thanks Captain!
