What You’ll Need


The fol­low­ing mate­ri­als are nec­es­sary, but not pro­vid­ed by Hudl.

Mount Installation

A smartphone with the Hudl Focus app downloaded

You need the app to install the cam­era and check its view.


To install the Hudl Focus mount in your facil­i­ty, you will need to drill holes into a wall. We strong­ly sug­gest you use a pow­er drill to do it.

Black & Decker Cordless Drill

14″ Drill Bit or 316″ Masonry Bit

To ensure the holes you drill are the right size for the hard­ware pro­vid­ed, use a 14″ drill bit for any­thing but con­crete. If drilling into con­crete, use a 316″ mason­ry bit instead.

DEWALT 316″ Masonry Drill Bit or DEWALT 14″ Titanium Drill Bit

516″ Nutsetter

If you’re mount­ing in con­crete, you’ll also need a 516″ nut­set­ter. This will help you dri­ve the pro­vid­ed screws into the wall.

516″ Long Super-Power Nut Setter


A crooked mount will give you crooked video. Use a sim­ple bub­ble lev­el to ensure you get it right the first time.

Stanley Magnetic Torpedo Level

Ladder or Scissor Lift

Installing your cam­era at a height and dis­tance to cap­ture the full court may require a lad­der or scis­sor lift.

Camera Installation

Ethernet Cable

An eth­er­net cable is not pro­vid­ed, but a wired inter­net con­nec­tion is required. Be sure to pur­chase a cable long enough to reach from your cam­era to the eth­er­net port you intend to use. We rec­om­mend an eth­er­net cable no longer than 150 feet to ensure a qual­i­ty net­work connection.

Extension Cord (Optional)

An exten­sion cord is not always nec­es­sary, but if there’s no pow­er out­let with­in 5 feet of your cam­era, you might need one to pow­er the device. The cam­era can’t func­tion with­out it.

If you’re mount­ing from a beam or rafter you may need some addi­tion­al hard­ware. Check out our rec­om­men­da­tions here
