Mounting the Camera
Step 1. Mounting Preparation
Paste the included guide pattern onto a wall/ceiling where the IP camera is about to be located, and drill 3 hole patterns in
accordance with the indications on the guide pattern (3-Ø4.5 Holes) followed by hammering the 3 plastic anchors into the
drilled holes. Also, drill another hole for button conduit cable entry as the indication of “Cable hole” (Ignore drilling cable hole
if applying side conduit manner).

Adjusting the Camera Position
The camera has three axes to adjust field of view for different applications. While screening live view on your monitor, adjust
the axes by the procedures below simultaneously for desired coverage of field of view.
Pan Adjustment (A)
Rotate the lens base until satisfied with the field of view. Please DO NOT rotate over the default limit.
Horizontal Rotation (B)
Rotate 3D assembly in the lens, but DO NOT turn assembly more than the limit as this may have the internal cables
twisted, disconnected, or broken.
Tilt Adjustment (C)
Tilt the camera lens within the certain range (27° - 90°) to your desired field of view.

*a switch is required for surveillance on multiple cameras.
All the installation and operations should comply with your local electricity safety rules.
When adopting PoE, this camera is to be connecting only to PoE networks without routing to
heterogeneous devices.
Connecting Process
Default IP address
Since this is a network-based camera, an IP address must be assigned at the very first stage. The camera’s default IP address is and sub mask is However, if you have a DHCP server in your network, the camera would obtain
an IP address automatically from the DHCP server so that you don’t need to change the camera’s IP address. But be sure to
enable DHCP in "Network Settings" first.
