Section 2: Installation
Hardware Installation
Please refer to the steps below to assist you with hardware installation process for the camera.
Remove the Camera Housing
The camera housing needs to be separated from the camera base to expose
the screw used to adjust the viewing angle. Remove the camera housing from
the camera base by squeezing the housing release buttons on either side of the
camera. Once the housing is released, lift it up and off the camera base to expose
the Ethernet and power receptor.
Connect the Ethernet Cable
Connect the included Ethernet cable to the network cable connector located on
the panel at the rear of the DCS-6004L/ and attach it to the network.
Attach the External Power Supply
Attach the external power supply to the DC Power receptor located on the rear
panel of the DCS-6004L and connect it to your wall outlet or power strip.
Reattach the Camera Housing
Reattach the camera housing by lining up the housing so that the access port
on the housing matches the access port on the camera base. Firmly push down
until the camera housing snaps back onto the camera base.

Section 2: Installation
Mounting the Camera
Please refer to the steps below to assist you with mounting the camera.
We suggest that you configure the camera before mounting.
1. The camera needs to be separated from the mounting base to expose the holes in the
mounting base. Remove the camera head from the mounting base by firmly holding the
camera with the D-Link logo facing you and then sliding the mounting base towards you.
2. Place the mounting base alignment sticker where you want to position the camera.
Depending on the material of the wall or ceiling, use proper tools to drill two holes where
you placed the alignment sticker. If the wall is made out of concrete, drill the holes first, then
insert the plastic anchors to support the screws.
3. Place the mounting base over the holes that are in the wall. Make sure to align the mounting
base holes with the holes in the wall. Use the supplied screws to attach the mounting base to
the surface of the wall.

in the illustration below, an event can be triggered by many sources, such as motion detection or external digital input devices. When an event is
triggered, a specified action will be performed. You can configure the Network Camera to send snapshots or videos to your e-mail address or FTP
site.
