Installing the Camera

ATTENTION: Test your camera prior to selecting a permanent mounting location by temporarily connecting the camera and cable to your recorder.

Before Installing the Camera

  • Decide whether to run the cables through the wall / ceiling (drilling required) or along the wall / ceiling.
  • If you run the cables along the wall / ceiling, you must run the cable through the cable notch on the base. This will keep the camera base flush to the surface when mounted.

To install your camera:

  1. Set the camera in the desired mounting position and mark holes for screws through the camera base.
    NOTE: It is recommended to install the camera faced downwards in wall-mount position to avoid rainwater from accessing the speaker.
  2. Drill the holes, then feed the cable through the mounting surface or cable notch.
    NOTE: Insert the included drywall anchors if you are mounting the camera onto drywall.
  3. Mount the camera stand to the mounting surface using the provided screws. Make sure all screws are fastened tightly.
  4. Adjust the camera as shown below:
  5. Remove the vinyl film from the camera lens when your installation is complete.

A. ROTATING THE ARM: Loosen the adjustment ring by turning it counter-clockwise. Rotate the arm of the camera up to 180° in either direction, then tighten the adjustment ring. Make sure to adjust with caution, multiple full turns could damage the internal wiring.
B. BENDING THE ARM: Use a Phillips head screwdriver (not included) to loosen the adjustment screw. Bend the arm of the camera up to 90°, then tighten the screw.
C. LEVELING THE CAMERA: Use the screwdriver to loosen the adjustment screw. Rotate the camera until it is level with the viewing area, then tighten the screw.
