Mounting the Camera

To mount your camera on a wall or ceiling, please follow the steps below. It is recommended that you configure the camera before mounting.

Step 1

Rotate the baseplate counter-clockwise and remove it.

Step 2

Place the baseplate where you want to position the camera and use a pencil to mark the holes. You can use the lower holes for a removable installation, or the top holes for a fixed one. Make sure that the arrow on the baseplate is pointing up.

Step 3

Depending on the material of the wall or ceiling, use proper tools to drill holes 25 mm deep with a 6 mm drill bit where you marked. If the wall is made out of concrete, drill the holes first, then insert the plastic anchors to support the screws.

Step 4

Place the baseplate over the holes that are in the wall. Make sure to align the baseplate holes with the holes in the wall. Use the supplied screws to attach the baseplate to the surface of the wall.

Step 5

Place the camera over the baseplate with the alignment nub pointing left, then attach the camera by rotating it until the alignment nub points up.

Step 6

Adjust the angle and rotation of the camera as desired. You can also rotate the camera on the baseplate about 45° to the right or left

This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of the following measures:

  • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
  • Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
  • Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
  • Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
