Replacing the Cable on Your Peephole Cam (Door View Cam)

Extend the life of your Peephole Cam (Door View Cam) by replacing its cable by following these easy, step-by-step instructions.

Uninstall your Peephole Cam (Door View Cam), battery, and tightening nut from the indoor assembly and door hole adapter (if installed).

Unplug the old cable

On the outdoor assembly, grasp the small tab above the port (located next to the tube) and pull firmly to disengage it.



Remove the old cable

Once unplugged, remove the old cable from the assembly and tube (it might be glued to the assembly and/or tube).


Remove the adhesive

Plug in the new cable

Take the connector at the end of the new cable and tuck it into the tube. This will protect the cable and make inserting your Peephole Cam (Door View Cam) through the door easier.


Reinstall your Peephole Cam

Once the cable is installed, simply reinstall the Peephole Cam (Door View Cam) in your door.
