  • The Earth wire must be connected to the light fixture. DO NOT INSTALL if a working earth connection is not available. 
  • Do not connect this light fixture to a dimmer switch or timer.

  1. Prep your Floodlight Cam Wired Pro for installation.

First, rotate the light out of the way, like this:

If you’re mounting on an eave or overhang, your camera is already in position.

If you’re mounting to a wall, rotate the camera into position like this:

  1. Remove your existing floodlight.

    a) With power off at the fusebox, remove the existing floodlight from the wall and disconnect the wires. If there is a bracket attached to the wall, remove that as well.
    b) Push gently on the threaded posts visible on the front of the fixture and pull the bracket free.

  2. Install the anchors.

If you’re installing on wood, skip this step.

If installing on stucco, brick, or concrete, mark 2 drill holes using the plastic mounting plate as a template. Then, use a 6mm masonry drill bit (not included) to drill holes in the wall, and insert the included anchors.

  1. Install the mounting plate.

Run the wires through the hole in the mounting plate.

Install the mounting plate with the two posts level with the ground, or level with the wall if mounting on an eave or overhang. Ensure the “UP” arrow is pointing upwards for wall mounting, and away from the area to be monitored for eave and overhang mounting.

Secure the plate with the two mounting screws. Then, push the included rubber plug over the screws to seal.

  1. Release the pressing plate.

Using the Phillips head end of the included screwdriver, loosen and remove one of the screws on the pressing plate and rotate it out of the way. Place the power cable into the channel, but don’t replace the pressing plate just yet.

  1. Secure the wires to the terminals.

With power still turned off at the fusebox, slide the Earth wire into the centre bay on the bottom of the terminal block and tighten with the flathead end of the included screwdriver. Then slide the Line wire into the bay on the bottom of the terminal block marked “L” and tighten with the flathead end of the screwdriver. 

Repeat with the Neutral wire, sliding it into the bay marked “N” and tightening with the flathead end of the screwdriver.

Tug each wire individually to make sure they are secure.

  1. Replace the pressing plate.

Once you’ve confirmed the wires are secure, replace the pressing plate over the power cable and tighten with the Phillips head end of the screwdriver.

  1. Hang it up.

Locate the nylon strap on the back of the Floodlight Cam Wired Pro light fixture, and loop the plastic buckle at the end over the plastic hook on the mounting plate. Make sure the buckle and hook are secure before releasing the light fixture.

  1. Mount the light fixture.

Align the two holes on the light fixture with the threaded posts on the plastic mounting plate. Slide the light fixture onto the posts and push it firmly into place.

Secure the fixture using two of the coloured hex cap nuts over the ends of the threaded posts. Remove the reversible bit from the included screwdriver and use the handle to tighten the hex cap nuts.
