I'm wondering about the time from "Officially EoST" to "License runs out" - which "theoretically" could have 2 different dates? Whats inbetween that time? My understanding is this. Usually best case scenario its a 3 year period or less. In that 3 year period you are entitled to your lifetime warranty, the device will most likely be updated to the next model up or what is available that is similar. After the 3 year period is up you are out of luck. The idea of running a device especially an MX for 10 years seems a bit unrealistic. Chances are threats and threat management will change drastically in 10 years, where you won't want a similar model. I would say a 5-7 year refresh on this is the best bet. So the idea that in theory you could have closer to a 15 year old device is way beyond normal refresh cycles.

If putting the camera at the end of the hallway I would say mount it on the wall, that way you can have the camera slightly lower and you are getting a better angle to capture peoples faces. The downside with mounting on a ceiling is the closer people get to the camera the less likely you are going to see there face and only see the top of their head. Just bear in mind the ceiling height when if you mount it on a wall as its more open to damage / vandalism.
