your child.

Note: Baby monitors with power cords should never be hung on or near the crib 
as it is a strangulation hazard. Power cords should be kept no less than  3 feet 
away from the crib and the baby’s reach at all times.

SETUP

Mounting the Camera on a Wall Safely

Before drilling the holes, it is important to check the reception and camera positioning in 
the intended location on the wall. Ensure you are hanging the camera no less than 3 feet 
away from baby’s crib.

1.  Pre-drill two holes in the wall using a 3/16”, 4.8mm drill bit.

2.  Insert wall anchors (not included) into each hole and tap gently with a hammer until 

the anchor is flush with the wall.

3.  Insert a screw (not included) into each wall anchor and tighten until the screws only 

stick out about a 1/2 inch.

4.  Plug the power cord into the power input of the camera.

5.  Locate the wall mounting holes on the bottom of  the camera base.

6.  Slide the holes over the screws sticking out of the wall.

7.  Confirm that the camera is secure, if it is loose you may 

have to tighten the screws more.

8.  Use wall clips (not included) to secure the power cord 

away from the crib or the baby’s reach. 

9.  Connect the other end of the adapter into an available 

wall outlet.

Night Vision

The camera is equipped with Invisible IR (infrared) LEDs 
which keep the nursery dark. The LEDs are located on 
the front of the camera and allow you to see up to 15 
feet in complete darkness so you can check on your baby 
at any time of night. The night vision LEDs will activate 
automatically when the Light Sensor on the front of the 
camera detects that the light levels are too low.

Note: Baby monitors with power cords should never be hung on or near the crib 
as it is a strangulation hazard. Power cords should be kept no less than  3 feet 
away from the crib and the baby’s reach at all times.
