Camera mounting instructions

The camera should be mounted 8 feet or more above the
ground on a flat surface, like a wall or ceiling.

Ensure that there are no obstructions near the camera.
Obstructions can lead to poor night vision performance.

Use the included drill template to mark the desired location

of the holes for the RJ45 ethernet interface and mounting
screws. Drill a 1” hole in the center of the template for

the RJ45 ethernet interface. If mounting to drywall, drill

three 9/32” holes and insert the included M5 wall anchors.

If mounting to a solid surface, like wood, drill three 1/8th”
pilot holes.

Connect the camera to ground. The ground location is
indicated by the ground symbol

. To ground the device, use

the included nut to connect the ground wire to the camera,
then connect the other end of the ground wire to an approved

ground according to Article 250 of the National Electrical
Code (NEC). If the camera needs to be removed in the

future, ensure that the ground wire is removed last.

Connect the camera to a properly terminated, unplugged
ethernet cable. Seal the connection using the included
weather resistant RJ45 cap. For non-PoE connections,
connect the 12VDC connector to an unplugged 12VDC
adapter. Insert the cables and ground wire into the RJ45
ethernet interface clearance hole.

Line up the camera with the three holes created in step 4.

Use the included M5x40mm screws to fasten the camera

to the mounting surface.

Activate the ethernet connection and connect the device

to power.

Troubleshooting
• If you have issues connecting the camera to the account,

power cycle the camera and try again.
• If issues persist, reset the camera to factory defaults.

Press and hold the
Reset button

until the LED is flashing
Green and Red (about 15 seconds), then release the button.
The camera will reboot with factory defaults.
If the camera was previously installed to an Alarm.com
account, it will need to be deleted before it can be

installed again.
