Mounting Landscaping Lights to Stucco


I am trying to mount some landscaping lights through stucco on a patio cover I built and not sure what hardware to use. The structure is wood cover with about a 3/4" (approx I subbed out the stucco part) rough coat and acrylic stucco. I am mounting the downlights in the picture which have a cover that goes over them. Do I use some kind of anchor or just screws and predrill? Any help is appreciated.

Mounting Landscaping Lights to Stucco

Just screws, and predrill, clearance hole thru stucco. Before install box or fixture, put some caulk around the hole to seal it.
