Install the camera To mount the camera onto a surface without the junction box The camera includes hardware to install it directly to the Junction box provided (preferred), to a mounting surface (without the junction box), or to a 2-gang electrical box using the adapter plate provided. When using the junction box, camera drop cables can attach to extension cables (for LAN, power, etc.) inside the box. The camera with or without the junction box can be installed on a ceiling (horizontal surface) or wall (vertical surface). To install the camera, do the following: To mount the camera using the Junction box For this mounting option, the drop cables must be stored behind the mounting surface. 1. Determine the best fasteners for securing the camera mounting base to mounting surface. The mounting hardware provided may be suitable for some surfaces. 2. Remove the junction box from the camera assembly by loosing the four mounting base captive screws. 3. Remove the four mounting base captive screws. 1. Determine the best fasteners for securing the Junction box to mounting surface. The mounting hardware provided is suitable for most surfaces. 4. Using the camera mounting base as a template, mark the locations of the holes for the mounting screws. Also mark the location of a hole for the camera drop cables. 2. Remove the junction box from the camera assembly by loosing the four captive screws. 5. 3. Using the Junction box as a template, mark the location of the Junction box mounting screw holes. If routing extension cables for the LAN, power, alarm devices, etc. through the mounting surface, mark the location for that hole too. If installing the box onto a vertical surface, observe the orientation for TOP and BOTTOM orientation markings inside the box. Route extension cables from the power source and LAN switch (or LAN with PoE), and peripheral devices for the left (or microphone) and right audio channels, and alarm input and output devices to the mounting location. Junction box To mount the camera onto an electrical box 1. Install a double-gang electrical box at the location where the camera will be installed. 2. Attach the adapter plate provided to the electrical box using four (4) screws. 3. Remove the junction box from the camera assembly by loosing the four mounting base captive screws. 4. Attach the junction box to the adapter plate using four (4) screws. 5. Route extension cables from the power source and LAN switch (or LAN with PoE), and peripheral devices for the left (or microphone) and right audio channels, and alarm input and output devices into the electrical box, and then up through the cable opening in the adapter plate and junction box. 6. Attach the camera safety cable to the safety cable hook inside the junction box. Mounting surface Orientation markings Mounting screws (4) 4. Drill holes in the mounting surface for the mounting screws and extension cables (if necessary). 5. Secure the Junction box to the mounting surface using appropriate fasteners. 6. Route the network LAN, power, ALARM, RS485, and AUDIO extension cables between the junction box and the devices they connect to. Do not apply power to the extension cables at this time. 7. Attach the camera safety cable to the safety hook inside the junction box.

Connect the network ALARM, RS485 and AUDIO extension cables to the camera drop cables as needed. The camera can connect to an alarm input sensor and an alarm output (reporting) device, and to one microphone and one audio line out device. The camera can also connect to an RS485 network for control of the lens. Labels on the alarm and RS485 drop cables show where to connect the extension cable wires. 2. Connect the Ethernet LAN cable to the camera LAN drop cable. Protect the connection from moisture and other contamination, if necessary. A weatherproof fitting is provided. Instructions for using the weatherproof fitting are provided on the web page for the product. 3. If the camera is not powered using PoE (Power over Ethernet injector), connect the 12 Vdc power extension cable to the 12 Vdc power drop cable. The power drop cable terminals are labeled + , , and -. CAUTION 2 www.observint.com Do not apply power to the camera at this time. Before applying power to the camera, ensure that the polarity is correct. An incorrect connection may cause a malfunction and can damage the camera. © 2014, 2015 Observint Technologies. All rights reserved. 4. Secure the camera to the Junction box (or mounting surface) using the screws provided. 5. Apply power to the camera through the 12 Vdc power cable or PoE injector, as configured. Step 4.
