When installing the camera, do not pull the cable to lift the camera when moving the device as it may cause internal damage to the camera.
Before installation, please ensure the installation surface is close to a network and power connection and can support up to 8x the weight of the camera. Please refer to the steps below to being installation.
Step 1: Using the mounting holes on the wall-mounted bracket bottom as a template (align the bottom of the bracket with the circular hole on the wall) and using a marker or pen draw the installation holes on the mounting surface.
Step 2: Drill the holes. Remove the nut and 2 washers from the expansion bolt and insert the sleeve of the expansion bolt and the bolt into the drilled holes. Do not lose the nuts and washers.
Step 3: Take the dongle wire connections and run them through the arm of the wall-mounted bracket. Align the top of the camera with the arm of the wall-mounted bracket and place the bracket flush with the camera. Connect any wires necessary to its applicable dongle wire connection.
Using the Switching Adapter to Power the Camera
The camera can be powered using a PoE+ connection which will provided data and power to your camera, however, if PoE+ is not an option the camera can be powered using the included DC24V, 2.5A switching adapter. If you are using this method to power your camera, please ensure that a wall outlet is close by. DO NOT APPLY POWER TO THE ADAPTER UNTIL THE CONNECTION HAS BEEN SECURED.
It is recommended to use gloves during this process. To begin, splice the ground wire (black) to the marked ground wire of the switching adapter and splice the DC24V (+) (red) wire to the power in wire of the switching adapter. Use electrical tape to ensure the connection is secured. Then, connect the power cable to the switching adapter and connect it to a wall outlet. The device will begin to boot.
Note: Ensure that an Ethernet cable is attached to the camera and your network before installing the camera and bracket to the mounting surface.
Step 4: Insert an included rubber washer into the back of the wall-mounted bracket and secure the camera to the wall-mounted bracket using the 3 stainless steel locking screws. Insert the screws into the respective holes on the arm of the wall-mounted bracket and use the included allen wrench to tighten the screws to secure the camera to the arm.
Step 5: Feed any wiring back into the installation surface and place the installation holes on the bottom of the mounting bracket into the 4 expansion bolts located on the mounting surface. Insert the split washer and solid washer onto the expansion bolt and hand tighten the nut to the bolt. Repeat the process for the other 3 expansion bolts. Then, using a socket wrench or similar tool, secure the nuts to the expansion bolts. The camera is now successfully installed.
