Getting Started


Connect the ethernet cable to your router and plugin the power adapter. You can disconnect the ethernet cable after setup is complete.

Different wall materials require different fasteners. Use the appropriate type for your mounting surface. Drywall screws and anchors have been provided. Use caution when drilling holes in walls that may contain live electrical wires.

Position your camera and affix it with the set screw. Secure camera connections in a weather-resistant enclosure.

Open the Insteon for Hub app and select Add a Camera. Insteon cameras require Insteon Hub.
