temporarily connecting the camera and cable to your DVR.

Before Installing the Camera
• Decide whether to run the cables
through the wall / ceiling (drilling
required) or along the wall / ceiling.
• If you run the cables along the
wall / ceiling, you must run the
cable through the cable notch on the
base. This will keep the camera base
flush to the surface when mounted.
Cable Notch
Connect the BNC connector
to a video input on your DVR.
To install your camera:
1. Set the camera in the desired mounting position and mark
holes for screws through the camera base.
2. Drill the holes, then feed the cable through the mounting
surface or cable notch.
3. Mount the camera stand
to the surface using the
provided screws. Make
sure all screws
are fastened tightly.
