Install the Camera
Install the camera onto the mounting plate
Hold the camera on each side of the camera arm.
Slide the back of the camera arm down into the openings on the mounting plate.
Continue to slide the camera arm down onto the mounting plate until the top of the camera arm is flush with the top of the mounting plate. The small hole on each side of the mounting plate should also line up with the camera arm.
To secure the camera onto the mounting plate, attach the push-in security rivet through the small hole on each side of the camera arm and mounting plate.
Secure the Camera
Take the included security cable and run it through the security loop on the back of the camera (located next to the ports).
Then attach it around an external structure or beam—or a separate security bolt.
Connect Power and Ethernet
Plug the power cable attached to the camera into the wall outlet. If your power cable doesn’t reach, use an extension cord.
Insert the blue ethernet cable with the attached weatherproof connector into the port labeled Network on the back of the camera.
Plug the other side of the blue cable into the ethernet port on the wall.
Insert the orange ethernet cable with the attached weatherproof connector into the port labeled Accessory on the back of the camera.
If you’re planning on adding commentary to your livestreams, plug in your standard, 3.5mm, audio cord to the port labeled Audio In on the back of the camera. This step is optional.
The Audio In port is waterproof. There are no additional components needed to protect it.
Wait for your device to start to receive power. You’ll know if it has power based on the status light, located on the bottom front of the camera.
- No light means the camera doesn’t have power. Double-check that your power cable is plugged into the camera and the power outlet.
- A pulsing orange light means that the camera is booting up. Wait until the light changes to determine your next step.
- A solid yellow light means your camera needs to be activated. Head to the Hudl Focus app to complete your next steps.
- A pulsing red light means you should give our support team a call.
Once the device is powered on and you see a solid yellow light, you’re ready to move on to camera activation. Your camera needs to be always powered on. This will help the camera keep updated and prevent from any problems weather could cause.
