Learn how to install the D50 using the ACC-MNT-2 and ACC-MNT-1

Updated over a week ago

This article shows how to properly install a D50 camera using the Verkada arm mount (ACC-MNT-2) and pendant cap (ACC-MNT-1). You can also follow these instructions for the D80 because it uses the same baseplate as the D50.

Mounting components

Here below are images of the mounting components and the D50 camera. 

Install a D50

Begin by unboxing the camera, screwing the pendant cap to the arm mount. Next, lay out all the items you will need to mount the camera to the pendant cap.

Items you need

  • D50 camera

  • ACC-MNT-2 with the provided B screws

  • T10 Torx security screwdriver (Provided with camera)

  • Philips screwdriver

Watch this video to learn how to install the D50 on the newly built arm. Steps follow below.

How it works

  1. Remove the dome of the camera.

  2. Remove the wall mount plate.

    1. To get the D50 on to the pendant cap, remove the wall mount plate (labeled "2") from the baseplate of the camera (labeled "1"), as shown below. 

    2. Use a Philips screwdriver and remove the 3 screws holding the wall mount plate.

    3. Reuse these 3 screws on the pendant cap. The screws should form an equilateral triangle on the pendant cap. The image below shows how the camera is aligned to all 3 screws, and the D50 mounting plate is removed in the background.

    4. Tighten the 3 screws, as needed.

  3. Create a watertight seal for the Ethernet cable.

    1. Fully tighten the nut.

    2. Note the orientation of the nut, cable gland, and Ethernet cable length connection.

    3. Once the nut is fully tightened, no thread is visible from the nut, and that the grey cable gland comes out of the pass-through, where the Ethernet cable should not be able to slide.

  4. Place the dome of the camera on to the camera body.

  5. Once the Ethernet cable is placed correctly, you can now install the desiccant pack to the base of the dome, and then screw the dome on to the camera body.

  6. Verify that the mount screws are properly tightened to the camera, tolerances should be tight and fit, and no cable should be visible through the dome.
