Installation steps 

To install your Floodlight Cam device, follow these steps: 

1. Shut power off at the fuse box 

Turn off power to your floodlight circuit at the fuse box to ensure no power is being sent.

2. Prep your Floodlight Cam for installation

A) Loosen the knobs on the light fixtures to rotate them out of the way and allow access to the mounting screws.

Do not remove your Floodlight Cam from the ball socket on the base.

B) Rotate the camera 180 degrees since Floodlight Cam ships with the camera upside down on the fixture.


3. Remove your existing floodlight

A) With power off at the fuse box, remove your existing floodlight from the wall and disconnect the wires.

B) If there is a bracket attached to the wall, remove that as well.


4. Install the mounting bracket 

Cut a hole in the gasket to fit your wires, and run them through.


Install the mounting bracket with the two posts level with the ground (or level with your wall if mounting vertically on an overhang).

5. Hang Floodlight Cam 

Use the provided hook to hang Floodlight Cam from the bracket while connecting the wires. 

  • Hook one end of the provided hook into one of the mounting holes on your Floodlight Cam. 
  • Hook the other end into the small hole on the bracket.

6. Connect the earth wire 

Connect your earth wire to the earth post on Floodlight Cam, and secure it in place.


7. Identify the neutral and line terminals

The terminals on the Floodlight Cam are marked N (neutral) and L (line). Identify these and wire accordingly. Depending on the age of the home, the wires may not match the colours shown below. Consult an electrician if you are unsure. 

8. Connect the power wires 

Attach the line and neutral wires from your wall to the line and neutral terminals on your Floodlight Cam. Secure them using the small flat head screwdriver.


9. Snap the wire connector into place 

After securing the wires, snap the wire connector into the base of the mounting bracket.

10. Place Floodlight Cam on the bracket

Carefully secure all the wires behind your Floodlight Cam. Align the mounting posts with the holes on Floodlight Cam and press together, securing the screw cap nuts with the orange screwdriver handle.


11. Restore power 

After restoring power, the lights will turn on and your Floodlight Cam will begin speaking to you to let you know it’s in setup mode.
