1. Mount the camera
For wireless connections: Wireless security should be configured before permanently
mounting the cameras (refer to #2, Power and configure wireless security at right).
On horizontal surfaces such as a shelf, the mounting plate typically is not needed. However if
there is vibration, or the mounting surface is very small you may wish to use the mounting
plate. This will ensure that the camera is not disturbed by vibration or the wires being tugged.
1. If mounting to a vertical or overhead surface, use the mounting plate. Use all three holes in the
mounting plate with screws that are suitable for the surface; do not use flat-head screws.
2. Slide the camera onto the mounting plate until fully seated as indicated by a clicking sound.
3. Orient the antenna vertically.
4. Connect the power transformer's wire to the power connector on the back of the camera.
IMPORTANT: If you need a longer power transformer cable (6 ft., 1.8m), you can order the
iPCAM-EXT extension cable. This will add 9 feet (2.7 meters) to the supplied transformer for
a total of 15 feet (4.5 meters). You may use ONLY one power extension cable.
5. Refer to the diagram below, and determine which configuration applies.

If you do not have the AlarmNet account number, you may use the MAC ID of your
communicator or alarm panel.
Dealers can enroll cameras and set up Total Connect accounts for customers
by visiting the AlarmNet website at

2. Power and configure wireless security
Refer to the configuration illustrations, below left.
Configuration #1: Connect each camera to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Then plug the Power Transformer into an outlet. Camera installation is DONE.
Configuration #2: Complete all the steps below.
Configuration #3: Connect the optional Honeywell WAP-PLUS Wireless
Access Point to the router, then complete the steps below.
• In order for the camera to be configured in wired mode, the Ethernet cable
must be connected first, then apply power.
• In order for the camera to be configured in wireless mode, make sure NO
Ethernet cable is connected. Apply power.
• When setting up a wireless configuration in very large buildings or
buildings with dense walls, wireless communications may be marginal. It is
best to first configure the system in the same room. Then upon successful
configuration, place each camera in the desired location.
• If using more than one wireless camera, each must be configured for
wireless security. Configure one camera at a time.
• If using a router instead of Honeywell's WAP-PLUS, ensure that the router
is configured for DHCP. (This is the default setting for most routers.) If
you are unsure, access the router's configuration settings and enable
DHCP (refer to the router's manual).
Configuring Wireless Security:
Each IP camera or ACU must be configured separately. Follow these steps:
1. Ensure the WAP-PLUS is on and fully booted (allow 2 minutes for the boot
process to complete).
2. Ensure an Ethernet cable is NOT connected to the IP camera. Then plug
the IP camera's Power Transformer into an outlet. Ensure the camera is
powered up and fully booted (allow 2 minutes for the boot process to
3. At the Router or WAP-PLUS, press and hold the WPS button for
seconds, then RELEASE. The WAP-PLUS Security light starts blinking.
Other wireless access points may operate differently.
4. At the camera, within
5. The indicator LED will blink amber during the WPS process, then turn
green. Allow up to 45 seconds for the WPS process to complete.
6. Repeat the steps above for each camera.
NOTE: In wireless modes, these steps are required if you use the Reset
button on the back of the camera to restore factory defaults:
Delete the camera from the AlarmNet account
Re-enroll it in the account
Reconfigure wireless security for the camera
