drilling template. Then fasten to surface with screws that are suitable for the mounting surface.
3. Connect the Power Transformer wire to the Power Connector on the camera back. At this time
DO NOT plug the power transformer in.
IMPORTANT: If you need to extent the power transformer cable (4.5 ft., 1.3m), you can order the
iPCAM-WLEXT extension cable. This will add an additional 10 feet (3 meters) to the supplied
transformer for a total of 14.5 feet (4.4 meters). You may ONLY use one power extension cable.
4. Refer to the diagram below, and determine which configuration applies. After the configuration wiring
is complete, plug the Power Transformer into a non-switchable power outlet.

This equipment has been tested to FCC requirements and has been found acceptable for use. The FCC requires the following statement for your information:
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly, that is, in strict accordance with the manufacturer's instructions, may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been
type tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B computing device in accordance with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a
residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• If using an indoor antenna, have a quality outdoor antenna installed.
• Reorient the receiving antenna until interference is reduced or eliminated.
• Move the radio or television receiver away from the receiver/control.
This Class B digital apparatus complies with Canadian ICES-003.

If you have Configuration #1 – Connect each camera to the router using an Ethernet
cable. Ensure power is applied. The camera installation is DONE.
If you have Configuration #2 – Complete all the steps below.
If you have Configuration #3 – You must attach the optional Honeywell WAP-PLUS
Wireless Access Point to the router, then complete all the steps below.
• In order for the camera to be placed in the wired mode, the Ethernet cable must be
connected first, then apply power.
• In order for the camera to be placed in the wireless mode, ensure the Ethernet cable is
NOT connected, then 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, please ensure the router is config-
ured for DHCP. (This is the default setting for most routers.) If you are unsure, access
the router's configuration page and enable DHCP (refer to the router's manual).
Configuring Wireless Security:
Each IP camera or ACU must be configured separately. Please perform the steps below.
1. Ensure the WAP-PLUS is on and fully booted (allow 2 minutes for the boot process to

process completes).

of the camera is used to restore factory defaults, you must delete that camera from the
AlarmNet Direct account, enroll it back into the account, then reconfigure wireless security
for that camera.
