Installing the IP Camera with a Vandal Resistant Enclosure
To install the IP camera to using a vandal resistant (VR) enclosure, perform the following steps.
Step 1 Attach the included installation template/alignment sticker to the ceiling or wall.
Step 2 Using the circle marks on the sticker, drill at least two pilot holes symmetrically on each side (four holes total) into the ceiling or wall, then put the provided wall plugs into the holes.
Use a hammer to drive the wall plugs into the holes, if needed.
Step 3 Secure the mounting plate to the ceiling or wall with the four included M4 x 25 screws.
Step 4 Take either of these actions to feed the cables to the IP camera:
- Cut out a section of the ceiling or wall that corresponds to the triangular cutout on the installation template/alignment sticker and feed cables through a ceiling or wall.
- Use a screwdriver to remove the cutout on the side of the conduit base, connect a cable conduit, and feed the cables through the side of the conduit base.
Step 5 Take these actions to install and connect an RJ45 Ethernet cable (24AWG [0.51 mm] gauge recommended).
a. Drill a hole on the rubber seal plug and insert an Ethernet cable (without a connector) through the opening.
b. Strip about 1/2 inch (12 mm) of the sheath from the Ethernet cable.
c. Use an RJ45 crimping tool to attach the Ethernet wires to a connector. When done, connect the cable to the camera’s Ethernet RJ45 socket.
d. Press the Ethernet cable into the routing path at the bottom of the camera so that the cable will not get in the way when the metal mounting plate is attached.
Step 6 (Optional) Take these actions to install and connect an external power cable and I/O cables for external devices:
a. Disassemble the components of the waterproof connector into parts (A) through (F).
b. Place the screw nut (E) on the power and I/O cable opening.
c. Feed the power cable through the waterproof connector (F --> D --> C--> B --> A). Be sure to feed enough power cable length through the waterproof connector to connect the power cable to the GPIO block.
Note There are 8 holes on the seal (D), and the widest holes with a crack on the side are specific for power cables.
d. Feed the I/O cables through the waterproof connector (F --> E --> D --> C --> B --> A). Be sure to feed enough I/O cable length through the waterproof connector to connect the I/O cable to the GPIO block.
The recommended cable gauge is from 2.0 to 2.8 mm.
e. Push the seal (D) into the housing (B).
f. Insert the seals (C) into unused holes on the seal (D) to avoid moisture.
g. Secure the sealing nut (A) and hex nut (F) tightly from the bottom of the camera.
h. Connect the power and I/O cables to the GPIO terminal block (see Figure 1-2).
Step 7 Use the included allen wrench to secure the conduit base to the mounting plate by using three screws.
Step 8 Remove the black cover.
Step 9 (Optional) Use mini cable with BNC connector to temporarily attach an NTSC or PAL compliant analog video display device to the analog video out port on the rear of the IP camera.
Note The mini cable with BNC adapter is included in the audio/video cables accessory kit, which you can purchase from Cisco (Cisco part number CIVS-AVCABLE).
Analog video is enabled by default to allow you to adjust the camera field of view during installation. However, it is not supported as a normal camera feed and is automatically disabled when any of the following camera settings are made:
- The primary video stream frame rate must be set higher than 15 fps.
- The secondary video stream must is enabled.
Note We recommend that you disable analog video after installation. To disable analog video, see the Cisco Video Surveillance 6000 Series IP Camera Configuration Guide.
Step 10 While viewing video from the IP camera, take these actions to adjust the 3-axis field of view:
a. Grip the two tilt adjustment screws and pan the IP camera left or right.
b. Loosen the two tilt adjustment screws, tilt the IP camera, then tighten the screws.
c. Rotate the IP camera to adjust the horizontal orientation until you achieve a level image.
Step 11 (Optional) Use the Focus, Tele, and Wide buttons on the IP camera to adjust the video image as desired (see Figure 1-1).
Step 12 Remove the wrapper from the included silica gel pack and use the included double-sided tape to attach the pack inside the VR housing. Make sure that the silica gel pack does not obstruct the IP camera field of view.
Step 13 Install the black cover.
Step 14 Attach the dome cover to the camera by aligning it with the mounting holes.
Step 15 Use the included allen wrench to tighten the four dome cover screws to secure the dome cover to the camera. Make sure all parts of the camera are securely installed.
