How would you patch stucco around doorbell area?

After removing an old horizontal doorbell, which was about 1/4 deep in stucco, I found the new doorbell camera that is going to be hardwired in is not wide enough to cover the existing hole.

How would you patch stucco around this doorbell area?

You could mix up a small amount of mortar and patch it .... or even use caulking no bigger than it is.

You could use a small piece of fancy wood as a filler.
It would mount over the hole and the camera would mount to it.

Thanks!

What are your thoughts on something like this wall plate?

That's one way of doing it.
That plate will mount over the stucco and the camera mounts to it.

Is that plate wider than the hole in the stucco ?
