    Turn off each system’s power supply before making a connection. Before making connections,
    prepare the required peripheral devices and cables.
    Use all 4 pairs (8 pins) of the Ethernet cable (category 5e or better, straight).
    The maximum cable length is 100 m {328 feet}.
    Make sure that the PoE device in use is compliant with IEEE802.3af standard.
    When the Ethernet cable is disconnected once, reconnect the cable after around 2
    seconds. When the cable is quickly reconnected, the power may not be supplied
    from the PoE device.
    When cables are used outdoors, there is a chance that they may be affected by light-
    ning. In this case, install a lightning arrester just before where the Ethernet cable
    connects to the camera.
    Connect an Ethernet cable (category 5e or better, straight)
    Waterproof treatment for the cable joint sections
    Adequate waterproof treatment is required for the cables when installing the camera with
    cables exposed or installing it under the eaves.
    The camera body is waterproof, but
    the cable ends are not waterproof.
    Be sure to use the supplied
    waterproof tape at the points where
    the cables are connected to apply
    waterproof treatment in the following
    Failure to observe this or use of
    a tape other than the provided
    waterproof tape (such as a vinyl tape)
    may cause water leakage resulting in malfunction.
    When connecting to a network using a PoE hub
    Before starting the installation, check the entire system conguration.
    The following illustration gives a wiring example of how to connect the camera to the network via
    a PoE device (hub).
    Stretch the tape to
    approx. twice its length.
    The adjustment monitor is used to adjust the field of view when installing or servicing
    the camera. It is not provided for recording/monitoring use.
    Depending on the adjustment monitor, some characters (camera title, preset ID, etc.)
    may not be displayed on the screen.
    Use a switching hub or a router which is compliant with 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX.

    ● How to initialize the camera
    Follow the steps below to initialize the network camera.
    1 Turn o the power of the camera. When using a PoE hub, disconnect the Ethernet cable from the
    Turn on the power of the camera while holding down the INITIAL SET button, and keep the INITIAL
    SET button held down till the SD MOUNT indicator is lit in green (more than 10 seconds). In about
    2 minutes after releasing the INITIAL SET button, the camera will start up and the settings including
    the network settings will be initialized.
    ● When the INITIAL SET button (i.e. the initializing button) is pressed (less than 1 second) to switch
    the output signal of the MONITOR OUT terminal (NTSC
    PAL output), the MONITOR OUT terminal
    can be switched for the NTSC monitor/PAL monitor.
    When the camera is initialized, the settings including the network settings will be initialized.
    Note that the CRT key (SSL encryption key) used for the HTTPS protocol will not be initialized.
    Before initializing the settings, it is recommended to write down the settings in advance.
    Do not turn off the power of the camera during the process of initialization. Otherwise, it
    may fail to initialize and may cause malfunction.

    Select screws according to the material of the ceiling or wall that the camera will be
    mounted to. In this case, wood screws and nails should not be used.
    If a ceiling or wall board such as plaster board is too weak to support the total weight,
    the area shall be sufficiently reinforced.
    Because the front cover is temporarily removed when installing or adjusting the camera,
    make sure no liquid enters the camera at these times.
    Loosen the 4 front cover fixing screws, and then remove the front cover.
