Can you mount Ring Doorbell Horizontal?

I asked this question privately to Chris Compton of the Smart Home HQ podcast but I thought I would throw it out to you guys too.  I have a spot where I want to mount a Ring.com doorbell but it looks like the better fit would be sideways or horizontal.  It's designed to be vertical and I'm sure the camera is hard mounted in the design.  Most indications from the Amazon reviews are NO!  

What do you guys think?

I thought there may be a way to rotate the image in the setup, but it does not appear to be. I wonder if you could open the camera and rotate the image sensor? This would be a good question to ask ring.com support.

I am confident you can mount it sideways but you will have a sideways image.  How about that answer!

 

I doubt they anticipated mechanically rotating the camera in the housing.  Software rotation isn't that difficult as long as they have planned for it.
