Connections
Connect the camera to your router and to the power outlet as described below.
• Before proceeding, confirm that your PC is connected to your router and can access the Internet. Also confirm that your router’s UPnP™ feature is
enabled. (Most routers have UPnP™ turned off by default.) Refer to the operating instructions included with your router or to the Panasonic Network
Camera website (http://panasonic.net/pcc/support/netwkcam/) for more information.

Connecting External I/O interface
The camera’s external I/O interface allows you to connect a device, such as a sensor or motion detector, that can be used to trigger the camera’s image
buffering and transferring features (see Section 2 Using Triggers to Buffer and Transfer Images in the Operating Instructions on the CD-ROM), as well as
the detection notification sound feature (see Section 1.2.7 Detection Notification Sound in the Operating Instructions on the CD-ROM).

Description
1
GND terminal.
2
External sensor input. The camera can be triggered by either an open
circuit or a GND short-circuit.
3
External device control output. Allows you to control an external device
using the output buttons in the camera’s operation bar (for example,
turning a light on or off).
• This terminal’s behavior can be changed (see 7.4 Controlling the
External Output Terminal (BL-C121 Only) in the Operating Instructions
on the CD-ROM).
• This terminal is an open collector circuit. The maximum drawing
current is the same as terminal 4. Do not exceed the voltage of
terminal 4.
4
DC power output terminal.
• DC 8 V–10 V
• Maximum load is 100 mA.
Caution
• The external I/O interface is not capable of connecting directly to
devices that require large amounts of current. In some cases, a
custom interface circuit (customer-provided) may have to be used.
Serious damage to the camera may result if a device that exceeds
its electrical capability is connected to the external I/O interface.
• Low voltage/current circuits and high voltage/current circuits are
used in the camera circuit. All wiring should be performed by a
qualified electrician. Incorrect wiring could damage the camera and
cause a fatal electric shock.
• External devices connected to the camera’s output terminals cannot
be controlled in the event of a network error or failure. Keep this in
mind when connecting door locks, heat-emitting devices, or other
devices that may be dangerous if they cannot be controlled. (BLC121 only)
Note
• If excessive force is used when disconnecting wires with pointed objects from
the external I/O interface, terminals may become damaged or the interface may
be pushed inside the camera body and become unusable.
For BL-C121: Notes About Wireless Communication
The radio wave range may decrease depending on the surrounding environment or existence of obstacles. If obstacles such as the following are placed
between a camera and a router, radio waves will weaken. Therefore, even if the distance between the camera and router is short, the frame rate may
decrease or images may not be displayed.
• A metallic door or shutter
• A wall with an insulation material that contains aluminum foil
• A wall made of tin
• A wall made of concrete, stone or brick
• Fireproof glass
• Several walls separated by open space
• A steel shelf
In the example below, wireless communication between the camera and the wireless router is impaired due to steel doors or reinforced concrete walls
between the camera and the wireless router.
Wireless antenna is built in the camera.
Position the camera away from obstacles such as
steel doors or reinforced concrete walls.

Mounting the Camera
4.
• The camera illustrations in this document depict the BL-C121.
Caution
• Do not drive the screws into a soft material. Drive the screws into a
secure area of the wall, such as a wall stud, otherwise the camera
may fall and be damaged.
• Make sure you attach the safety wire when mounting the camera, to
prevent the camera from falling.
Note
• Use screws that are appropriate for the material of the wall.
• The included screws are for use with wooden walls only.
• The camera is intended for indoor use only and should not be
mounted outdoors.
• To ensure that camera images are displayed properly, do not mount
the camera on an incline. Mount the camera so that it is
perpendicular to the floor. Do not mount the camera upside down.
Loosen the position lock located on the rear side of the flexible stand,
and turn the mounting screw to attach the camera.

camera platform.
7.
Secure the safety wire to the ceiling or wall using screw A (included)
and washer L (included).
• Leave some slack in the safety wire, as shown.
• Make sure the safety wire is firmly mounted on a wall or ceiling stud (25 mm [1 inch]
and greater) etc. When there is no stud, apply a board on the other side of the ceiling
or wall to make sure the camera does not drop.

• Do not drive the screws into a soft material. Drive the screws into a secure area of the
wall, such as a wall stud, otherwise the camera may fall and be damaged.
• Use screws that are suited for the type of material the camera is mounted to.
• Allow sufficient space between the ceiling or wall and the flexible stand to turn the
position lock.
• Make sure the flexible stand is firmly mounted on a wall or ceiling stud (25 mm
[1 inch] and greater) etc. When there is no stud, apply a board on the other side of the
ceiling or wall to make sure the camera does not drop.
