Recessed Mounting Kit SR600-VB - Installing the Camera


The following explains the procedures to install the camera on a ceiling using the recessed mounting kit. Before installing the camera, set the IP address and other network information on the camera using the “VB Initial Setting Tool” on the Setup CD-ROM.

For details on how to operate the “VB Initial Setting Tool”, see “Operation Guide”.

If using an SD memory card, insert the SD memory card into the camera before attaching the dome case (see “Installation Guide” > “Using an SD Memory Card” included with the camera).

1 Determine an installation position for the camera and drill holes in the ceiling

Use the included template to determine the positions of the holes (three) for mounting the backside ceiling bracket and the ceiling bracket holes according to the camera orientation. Next, drill holes ( 205 mm ( 8.07 in.)) in the ceiling.

2 Assemble the ceiling brackets

Interlock the embossed locating pins of ceiling bracket 1 with the locating bores in ceiling bracket 2. Fix the brackets with the 3 included assemble screws (M3). The position of the locating bores on ceiling bracket 2 differs according to the camera. Refer to the diagram to interlock the brackets correctly.


Check that the interlocked brackets are fixed by the embossed locating pins.

3 Loosen the three lock screws on the dome case and remove the dome case

Special tamper-resistant screws are used for the dome case lock screws. Use the dome case lock screw wrench included with the camera.

4 Remove the inner cover

Remove the 4 pieces of tape that prevent lens rotation during shipping, and push the inner cover in the direction of the arrows to remove it. Then remove the 2 pieces of tape attached to the base of the lens.

5 Open the wiring hole according to the installation method

Use a box cutter to cut a cross shape into the wiring hole cover in order to guide cables through.

Do not remove the wiring hole cover.

Use a coin to unscrew the wiring hole cover from the side through which cables will be guided. Screw the wiring hole cover into the other wiring hole. You can fit a composite pipe (NPT 3/4 inch threaded hole) to the wiring hole.

6 Mount the camera to the ceiling bracket assembly

Fix with three included camera fixing screws (M4).

The screw holes differ according to the camera. Refer to the diagram to fix the camera using the correct screw holes.

7 Attach the backside ceiling brackets inside the ceiling

From the inside of the ceiling, insert the protrusions on the backside ceiling brackets through the mounting holes drilled in step 1.

8 Temporarily tighten screws to the backside ceiling brackets

Temporarily tighten the three included ceiling bracket screws (M4) through the ceiling.

9 Secure the safety wire

Securely attach the safety wire to an anchor or structure. After securing one end of the safety wire to the ceiling, secure the other end to the camera using the screw that is fastened to the camera.

10 Guide the LAN cable through the wiring hole

When using an external power supply, guide the power interface cable through the wiring hole. Guide the I/O interface cable and the audio interface cable (included with the camera) through the wiring hole if necessary.


When using the AC Adapter PA-V17 (sold separately), cut the cable tie and remove the ferrite core. Be sure not to damage the power cable when cutting the cable tie. Cable tie

11 Fix the camera-mounted ceiling bracket assembly to the ceiling

Position the ceiling bracket assembly onto the screws temporarily tightened in step 8, turn clockwise and completely fasten the screws.

12 Wire the cables

Wire the cables referring to the “Installation Guide” > “Cable Wiring Method” included with the camera.

13 Attach the inner cover

Attach the inner cover to its original position.

14 Attach the dome case

Firmly fix the dome case at three points to the camera using the dome case screws.

15 Attach the recessed mounting cover

Align the (O) mark on the recessed mounting cover with the (I) mark on the ceiling bracket, and turn clockwise until the (I) mark on the recessed mounting cover aligns with the (I) mark on the ceiling bracket. Fix the recessed mounting cover.

16 Set the camera angle

When installation is complete, use the Camera Angle Setting Tool to adjust the pan, tilt, rotation, zoom (and focus) (see “Operation Guide” > “Camera Angle Setting Tool”).
