It’s important your camera is configured according to your individual requirements Once you have completed the set up process it is advisable to test it so you are satisfied it will do what you need.

1.Cable access

A. Unscrew the stand cap screw (anti-clockwise)

B. Twist the stand cap to remove the cables (anti-clockwise)


2. Attach the WiFi antenna (if using WiFi)

Remove the protective boot and screw in the WiFi antenna in its place (clockwise)

3. Connect the camera to the main router and power ON.

Use the network (Ethernet) cable supplied to connect your camera to a spare network port on the back of your router. Connect the power. The Status LED on the front of the camera will start flashing. Wait for it to start communicating with our cloud platform, once connected the status LED will go green. This may take a few minutes.



Connect on Wi-Fi or using extender

Using a Wi-Fi connection for your camera is a popular option, but thick or insulated walls can greatly reduce the signal strength. Always test the camera can reach your network before installation.

Connect by network cable or Power over Ethernet (PoE)

Connections are the most reliable. PoE allows you to also power the camera from a PoE switch/router, so only an ethernet cable is required to reach the camera. ‘A PoE Injector or Switch that is 8023af compliant and a mininum 13W power per port is required.


Important information

  • If using WI-Fi, make sure you remove the protective boot from the Wi-Fi antenna mounting screw before attaching the antenna.
  • We recommend placing the camera no further than 10m away from your router; closer if there are obstacles in the way such as walls, doors or ceilings.
  • Outside of this range, we recommend using an Ethernet connection, Power over Ethernet, installing a Wi-Fi signal extender or repeater, or using HomePlug/Powerline technology.
  • The camera is only compatible with 2.4GHz network. If your router is using the 5GHz band, please ensure it is operating in a mixed mode and with the frequencies operating independently from one another · Make sure your camera is connecting to your network properly before following the rest of installation procedure and securely fastening your camera to the wall.



If using Wi-Fi, before mounting, ensure your camera is in a position where Wi-Fi is accessible.

Work out where you want the camera to be placed, and drill two holes for the stand cap. Prepare your cabling to the centre of this point, either along the wall or through the wall (see Option 1 and 2) (Power cable if using Wi-Fi, power cable and/or Ethernet cable if using network connection or PoE), bearing in mind the cabling will be going straight in to the back of the camera – so all excess cable should be removed, with the cable connectors as close to the centre of the base plate as possible.


  1.  Position the rubber grommet over the cables between the two screws, channeling the cables through the groove if
    required. The grommet only fits into the stand cap one way.
  2. Prepare the camera and stand for mounting (attach WiFi aerial, tighten ball joints slightly, move sun
    shield, etc. as needed for your setup) Note: Ensure all excess cable is removed as excess cable will not fit in
    the camera mount.
  3. Connect the cable from the camera to the cabling in step 2. Please make sure the power connector is pushed in securely.
  4. Position the cable from the base of the camera through the base of the stand and insert any extra cable into the stand.
  5. Turn the camera and stand anti-clockwise and place over the stand cap, and then turn clockwise to lock into place.
    If you have any issues locking the stand into the place, make sure the cable from the camera going into the base is not preventing the stand from locking into place.
  6. Insert the stand cap screw and tighten it in order to firmly secure the camera and stand to the wall.
    Readjust the cameras ball joint to capture the desired view. Affix any loose cabling to the wall.
