Installation Procedures
This section covers the step-by-step procedures in directly mounting the camera on a flat and
smooth ceiling.
Step 1: Drill the Holes
1. Mark the screw holes location on the ceiling, then drill the holes and insert the plastic plugs.
2. Determine how the cables will be routed: pass through the surface or along the surface.

If the cables will pass through the surface:
a. Drill the cable hole location on the surface.
b. Remove the cap covering the bottom hole of the camera, and attach the cap to the
side hole to close it. The network cable will pass through the surface and the
bottom hole to the camera.

If the cables will be routed along the surface, skip to the next step.

Step 3: Prepare for Waterproof Installation
The camera comes with two (2) glands used for waterproof installation: Cable gland and Conduit
Gland. Determine the type of waterproof solution that is applicable to your installation
requirements and prepare the necessary accessories or purchase extra materials.
Cable Gland
Conduit Gland
and
For use with an EXTERIOR-GRADE
Ethernet cable. Exterior-grade Ethernet
cables are already waterproof.
For use with 3/8” flexible conduit.
Recommended when an exterior-grade
Ethernet cable is not available or when other
input/output devices or an external power
adaptor will be connected to the camera.
Step 4: Connect the Cable(s)

To connect the cable using the cable gland solution, see Waterproof Solution with
Naked Cable on page 7.

To connect the cable(s) using the conduit gland solution, see Waterproof Solution with
Conduit on page 10.
Step 5: Install the Camera to the Surface
1. If necessary, insert a memory card into the card slot of the camera.
2. Attach the camera to the surface using the three (3) supplied screws.
Rubber Ring
NOTE: Make sure the camera screws have rubber rings. If the screws you received do not
have rubber rings, please contact your local sales agents or our Customer Help Desk (CHD)
for support.

Waterproof Solutions
There are two ways to do the waterproof cabling installation:

Waterproof with Naked Cable: This installation uses the supplied cable gland and an
exterior-grade Ethernet cable (not supplied). Exterior-grade cables are already
waterproof and thus, do not require a conduit.

Waterproof with Conduit: This installation uses the supplied conduit gland and a 3/8”
flexible conduit (not supplied). This is the recommended solution if other input / output
devices or an external power adaptor will be connected to the camera.
Waterproof Solution with Naked Cable
This section describes the procedures to waterproof the cabling connections using an
exterior-grade Ethernet cable.
1. Disassemble the cable gland as shown below:
Body
(with Washer)
Sealing Insert
with Claw
Clamping
Nut
2. Insert the clamping nut into the Ethernet cable.

3. Insert the sealing insert with claw.
4. Attach the cable gland body to the hole of the camera.
or
Attach to Camera Side Hole
Attach to Camera Bottom Hole
NOTE: The following images are taken using the side hole of the camera; the same
procedures apply when using the bottom side hole.
5. Insert the Ethernet cable through the cable gland body and connect it to the Ethernet port of
the camera.

Waterproof Solution with Conduit
This section describes the procedures to waterproof the cabling connections using a flexible
conduit with 3/8” trade size (not supplied). This is the recommended solution when connecting an
external power adaptor, audio in/out, or digital input/output (DI/DO) devices to the camera.
1. Disassemble the cable gland as shown below:
Lock
Nut
Body
(with Washer)
Sealing
Rubber
Clamping
Nut
2. Pull the Ethernet cable and other cables (if any) through the flex conduit.
NOTE: To connect an external power adaptor, audio in/out, or digital input/output (DI/DO)
devices, insert the cables without connectors through the flex conduit together with the
Ethernet cable at this point.
3. Insert the clamping nut through the flex conduit.

8. Connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port of the camera. If connecting other cables,
such as an external power adaptor, audio in/out or DI/DO devices, connect the terminal
blocks at this point and connect them to the corresponding connectors of the camera (see
Appendices on page 13 for more information).

Installation Guide
Appendices
This section describes the procedures in preparing the external devices that you can connect to
the camera. The camera supports DC12V power input, Digital Input and Output (DI/DO) and
Audio Input and Output devices using the bundled terminal blocks. The use of these devices,
however, is optional.
Connecting a Power Adaptor (Optional)
The camera consumes 9.6W power when powered by a Power over Ethernet (PoE) switch that is
IEEE802.3af compliant. In case of using a non-PoE switch or your PoE switch has limited power
supply, you can purchase a power adaptor and directly connect the camera to a power outlet. The
power adaptor must be connected to the supplied terminal block before use.
To do this, follow the procedures below:
1. Loosen the screws of the 12V and GND pins of the power terminal block.
2. Take note that a standard power adaptor cable has two (2) different wires:
Connects to GND Pin
White stripe: Connects to 12V Pin
13
www.acti.com
Installation Guide
3. Connect the wire with the white stripe to the 12V pin and the other to the GND pin.
4. Tighten the screws of the 12V pin and the GND pins to secure the wire connection.
5. Set the prepared power adaptor for connection later. Below is an example of a power adaptor
with an attached terminal block.
NOTE: The power adaptor is not bundled in the package.

Installation Guide
Connecting DI/DO Devices (Optional)
Depending on your surveillance needs, you may connect digital input or output devices to your
camera to trigger events or notifications.
Digital Input (DI) devices can be used to notify the camera about an activity in the camera site. DI
can be triggers of events. For example, you can connect a “panic button” to the camera; as such
when the panic button is pressed, the alarm signal will be sent through the camera. Other
common DI device applications are emergency button, smoke detector, passive infrared sensor,
etc.
Digital Output (DO) devices are external devices that are activated by the camera upon an event
inside the camera. For example, you can connect an “alarm horn” to the camera; as such when
an event occurs inside the camera (e.g. detected intruder), the alarm horn will sound. Other
common DO device applications are motion-triggered lights, electric fence, magnetic door locks,
etc.
You can connect up to two DI and two DO devices to your camera.
Press and hold the orange tab as you insert the wire through the pin slot, then release the orange
tab to secure the wire.

Typical Connection
Based on these specifications, if the DI device has a voltage of 0V ~ 30V or the DO device has a
voltage of < 24V (<100mA), then the camera can supply internal power to these devices and
there is no need to connect the DI/DO device to an external power source.
In this case, wire connection to Pins 1 to 4. Use the GND and DI1 pins to connect a DI device and
use the 12V and DO1 pins to connect a DO device. See wiring scheme below:
Consequently, to connect a second DI or DO device, wire the connection to Pins 5 to 8.

High Voltage DO Device Connection
Even though the camera provides 12V power, this may not be enough for some high voltage DO
devices, such as a ceiling light or a motor that opens or closes a gate. In this case, there is a
need to connect an external relay. See wiring scheme below:
Note that when choosing an appropriate relay, please refer to its specifications and make sure
they match the above design. The triggering circuit voltage has to be around 12V DC and the
switch-controlled circuit voltage has to match the external power supply (e.g. 110V AC or 220V
AC).
The illustration below is a graphic example of connecting a relay to a high voltage DO device.
