Connecting Cables

Refer to the diagrams in the Overview section for the location of the
different  connectors.

To connect the cables required for proper operation, complete the
following: 

1.

If there are external input or output devices that need to be 
connected to the camera (for example: door contacts, 
relays, etc), connect the devices  to the camera I/O 
Terminals. 
For more information, see 

Connecting to External Devices

.

2.

If an external microphone or external video monitor needs 
to be connected to the camera, connect the devices to the 
camera Audio/Video Connector.
For more information, see 

Connecting to Microphones and 

Video Monitors

.

3.

Connect the Ethernet Port (RJ45 connector) to a network 
using an Ethernet network cable. The Link LED will turn on 
once a network link has been established.

4.

Connect power using one of the following methods:

Power over Ethernet (PoE) Class 3 — If PoE is 
available, the camera is automatically detected 
when the network cable is connected.

External Power — Connect an external 12 VDC or 
24 VAC power source to the power connector block. 
For more information, see 

Connecting Power

.

Caution — 

This camera is designed for indoor use only.

Warning — 

Use only UL-listed mounting bracket suitable for 

the mounting surface and minimum 0.7 kg (1.5 lb) weight.

5.

Check that the Connection Status LED indicates the 
correct state. 
For more information, see 

LED Indicators

.

Assigning an IP Address

The camera automatically obtains an IP address by default. Once
connected to a network, it attempts to locate and obtain an IP address
from a DHCP server. If this fails, Zero Configuration Networking
(Zeroconf) is used to choose an IP address. When the IP address is
set using Zeroconf, the IP address is in the 169.254.0.0/16 subnet. 

The IP address settings can be changed using one of the following
methods:

(Recommended) ClearPix Camera Installation Tool 
software application.

Camera's web browser interface: 
http://

<camera IP address>

/

ARP/Ping method. For more information, see 

Setting the 

IP Address through the ARP/Ping Method

.

Network Video Management software application (for 
example, ClearPix Video Management).

NOTE: 

The default camera username is 

admin

 and the default 

password is 

admin

Accessing the Live Video Stream

Live video stream can be viewed using one of the following methods:

(Recommended) ClearPix Camera Installation Tool 
software application.

Camera's web browser interface: 
http://

<camera IP address>

/.

Network Video Management software application (for 
example, ClearPix Video Management).

NOTE: 

The default camera username is 

admin

 and the default 

password is 

admin

Aiming and Focusing the Camera

Use the ClearPix Camera Installation Tool to aim and focus the
camera. Consult the software user guide for more information.

1.

In the Image and Display settings dialog box, use the 
Zoom controls to achieve the desired zoom position for the 
camera.

2.

In the Image and Display settings dialog box, use the 

Auto 

Focus

 button to focus the lens. 

If the desired focus position was not achieved, use the 
focus near and far buttons to adjust the focus.

Caution — 

Do not attempt to adjust the focus and zoom on 

the camera itself or the camera lens may become damaged.

Cable Connections

Connecting External Power

NOTE: 

Do not perform this procedure if Power over Ethernet (POE) is 
used.

If PoE is not available, the camera needs to be powered through the
removable power connector block. Refer to the  diagrams in this guide
for the location of the power connector block.

The device can be powered from 12 VDC or 24 VAC. The power
consumption information is listed in the product specifications. 

To connect power to the power connector block, complete the
following steps:

1.

Remove the power connector block from the device.

2.

Remove the insulation from ¼” (6 mm) of the power wires. 
Do not nick or damage the wires.

3.

Insert the two power wires into the two terminals on the 
power connector block. The connection can be made with 
either polarity.
Use a small slotted (5/64” or 2 mm blade width) 
screwdriver to loosen and tighten the terminals.

4.

Attach the power connector block back into the receptacle 
on the device.

Warning — 

This product is intended to be supplied by a UL 

Listed Power Unit marked “Class 2” or “LPS” or “Limited 
Power Source” with output rated 12 VDC or 24 VAC, 6 W 
min. or PoE rated 48 VDC, 6 W min.

Connecting to Microphones, Speakers 
and Video Monitors

The camera can be connected to an external microphone, speaker
and video monitor through the audio/video connector. The connector
is a mini-jack (3.5 mm), and the pinout for it is shown in the following
diagram. 

NOTE: 

The camera only supports line level mono audio input and an 

NTSC or PAL video output.

The video output signal is determined by the camera flicker control
setting. When the camera flicker control is set to 60 Hz, the video
output signal is NTSC. When the flicker control is set to 50 Hz, the
video output signal is PAL. Use the ClearPix Camera Installation Tool
to configure the camera’s flicker control in the Image and Display
setup.
