Installing a MicroSD Card

This camera requires a class 10 or above microSD card formatted to FAT32 to function. The camera can handle a max of 256GB of microSD card storage. 

Step 1: Locate the Reset cover on the top of the camera. This area will provide access to the factory reset button as well as the microSD card slot.

Step 2: Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the cover. If you are having trouble removing the cover, use the provided torx wrench to remove the camera’s dome enclosure.

Step 3: Locate the microSD card slot, and with the gold pins forward towards the lens, insert the microSD card into the slot.

Step 4: Gently press down until you hear a click. This click indicates the microSD card has been properly secured.

Step 5: Place the cover back onto the camera and secure it to the camera using a Phillips head screwdriver. If you have removed the dome enclosure, please the enclosure back onto the camera and secure it tightly with the torx wrench.

Physical Installation

Note: Prior to installation, please ensure that the installation environment can support at least 3x the weight of the camera and bracket.                    

To install the camera on a ceiling or wall, please reference the below diagram as well as the steps:


Note: Due to certain hardware limitations within your camera it is important to note that these devices will not be able to automatically/remotely pan/tilt or pivot in either the app or via the web UI on a computer. For this reason, it is imperative to make sure to mount the cameras properly and position them as efficiently as you can to the areas you wish to monitor. All positioning actions to the camera will have to be performed manually.

To install the camera onto a wall, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Place the installation sticker onto the mounting surface.

Step 2: Drill bottom holes according to the installation position map and insert the included wall anchors into the holes. If running wires through a wall/ceiling a 1” paddle bit can be used to drill the center portion of the sticker.

Step 3: Use the included Torx wrench to remove the security screw on the front of the casing. This will disassemble the camera from its case.

Step 4: Align the holes on the bottom installation bracket to the wall anchors on your mounting surface. Run the wiring through the newly drilled hole or on the side of the camera keeping the camera and mounting bracket level with the mounting surface.

Step 5: Use a Phillips head screwdriver (not included) to secure the bottom bracket and camera to the mounting surface.

Step 6: Place the top portion of the casing over the camera and installation bracket and use the included Torx wrench to tighten the security screw back onto the casing. Do not overtighten the security screw as it may not properly be secured if overtightened.
