This article will show you how to properly install a D80 camera using the Verkada Arm Mount (ACC-MNT-2) and Pendant Cap (ACC-MNT-1).
This video shows a complete installation
Step 1. Screw the pendant cap to the arm mount. Next, unbox the camera and lay out all the items you will need.
- D50 camera
- ACC-MNT-2 with the provided B screws
- T10 Torx security screwdriver
- Philips screwdriver
Step 2. Remove the dome of the camera.
Step 3. Remove wall mount plate
In order to get the D80 onto the pendant cap, you will need to remove the wall mount plate with a Philips screw driver. Save the three screws for Step 3.
Step 4. Mount Camera to Pendant Cap
Use the three screws from step 2, to mount the camera to the pendant cap as demonstrated on the video below. Pass the ethernet cable through the pass through and tighten the three screws.
Step 5. Install the cable gland
Install the cable gland to create a water tight seal. Ensure the nut fully tightened. The orientation of the nut, cable gland and Ethernet cable are shown below.
No threads from the nut should be visible and that the grey cable gland should slightly protrude through the nut. The Ethernet cable should be secure and you won't be able to pull it.
Step 6. Install the desiccant pack
Open the desiccant pack, peel off the double sided tape and affix the pack to the appropriate location as indicated on the camera mount. The desiccant pack must be installed to prevent condensation.
Step 7. Install the dome
Align the dome to the camera body and secure the screws using the Torx screw driver.
No cable should be visible through the dome and the tolerance should be tight.
