Intended Use:
Before operating the device, please read the entire manual thoroughly. The system was designed, built and
tested for use indoors, and with the provided power supply and cabling. The use of a power supply other than the
one provided or outdoor operation has not been tested and could damage the device and/or create a potentially
unsafe operating condition.
Important Safeguards:
Read and understand all instructions before using. Do not operate any device if it has been dropped or damaged.
In this case, a Vaddio technician must examine the product before operating. To reduce the risk of electric shock,
do not immerse in water or other liquids and avoid extremely humid conditions.
Use only the power supply provided with the system. Use of any
unauthorized power supply will void any and all warranties.
Please do not use “pass-thru” type RJ-45 connectors. These pass-thru type connectors do not
work well for professional installations and can be the cause of intermittent connections which
can result in the RS-232 control line failing and locking up, and/or compromising the HSDS™
signals. For best results please use standard RJ-45 connectors and test all cables for proper
pin-outs prior to use and connection to Vaddio product.
Save These Instructions:
The information contained in this manual will help you install and operate your product. If these instructions are
misplaced, Vaddio keeps copies of Specifications, Installation and User Guides and most pertinent product
drawings for the Vaddio product line on the Vaddio website. These documents can be downloaded from free of charge.

• Before starting the installation of the DomeVIEW HD 12” Indoor Pendant Mount Dome Enclosure, please read
this manual. There are several things to consider before mounting a dome.
When locating the dome, consider camera and subject matter viewing angles, lighting conditions, possible
line of site obstructions and check for construction challenges where the camera is to be mounted. Pick a
mounting location to optimize the performance of the camera. Avoid locating lighting elements or direct
Vaddio HD-20, HD-19 and HD-18 PTZ cameras use Cat-5e cable for video power and control. When
terminating the Cat-5e cabling, please make sure that each cable is marked and tested for proper termination
of all ends with a continuity tester. Please do not use the “pass -thru” type RJ-45 connectors.
All work must conform to local building codes and should be performed by qualified
personnel. For the most obvious reasons, a ladder is required to install the
DomeVIEW HD Enclosure. Safety comes first, so please use safe tools, ladders and
installation practices.
Always measure twice, and check your work, then cut once.
STEP-BY-STEP Installation Instructions:
Step 1:
It is easiest to mount the dome on the 1.5” NPT pipe mount or wall mount and then install the contents of the
dome to avoid cabling problems as the dome is spun onto the pipe mount. Rotate the dome counter-clock wise
until threads are fully engaged.
Note: The camera and contents can also be installed on the ground, but extra care must be taken with the cables
when the dome is spun onto the 1.5” NPT pipe threads - Installer’s preference.
Step 2:
Loosen the two (2) 10-32 x .375” screws on the Universal Platform that are key-holed and fully remove one (1) 1032 x .375” screw from the camera platform. Slide the two loosened screws through the keyholes and remove the
Step 4:
Pull the camera’s Cat-5e cabling through the 1.5” NPT pipe at this time.
Step 5:
Using the provided ¼”-20 x 5/8 screws, attach the HD-18 or HD-19 camera to the camera platform.
NOTE: If using the HD-20 camera, take the thee (3) .75” long 10-32 threaded M to F .5” Hex stand-off extensions
and attach them to the Three (3) 2.5” long 10-32 threaded F to F .5” Hex stand-offs in the bottom of the can.
Tighten the hex stand-offs firmly with a socket or nut driver. Attach the HD-20 camera with the provided ¼”-20 x
3/8” screws to the Universal Camera Platform. The HD-20 is about ¾” shorter than the HD-18 and HD-19 and
needs this small boost.
Step 6
Set the camera dip and rotary switches (functions and video resolutions prior to installing it in the dome). Re-install
the Universal Mounting Platform inside the dome with the camera attached. Slip the keyholes over the screws in
the stand-offs and tighten down all three platform screws Connect the Cat-5e cables according to the manual
that was included with the camera package purchased, making sure the cables are tucked up behind the
mounting plate to avoid interference with the PTZ camera movement.
Step 7:
Once the camera is installed in the dome, pull the cable slack back through the pendant extension pipe or curved
wall mount. .

Step 8:
Attach the 12” polycarbonate dome to the enclosure with the three (3) attached stainless steel screws.
Step 9:
Connect the camera at the head end according to the camera manual.
NOTE: Check all the marked Cat-5e cables for continuity in advance of the final connection.
Plugging the Cat-5e cables into the wrong RJ-45 jack may cause damage to the camera
system and void the warranty.
