EUFY Outdoor Mounting Guide
Choose a Mounting Location and Height
The Eufy outdoor cameras are suitable to be mounted on a table, shelf, or wall. Actually as well outdoors as indoors!
Before mounting the OutdoorCam, choose a location and height to provide the desired view and allow easy access to a power outlet.
Ascertain that the camera has a strong Wi-Fi connection in the location where it will be mounted for it to stream video to your eufy Security app.
Before mounting, disconnect the OutdoorCam from the power outlet.
Mounting the Eufy camera
1. When placing the OutdoorCam on a table, keep it at least 0.7 ft / 20 cm away from walls or other obstructions to the view. This is to avoid infrared reflection, which can impair night vision performance. Next, attach the bottom of your camera to the magnetic base and place it on the table.
2. When mounting the OutdoorCam on a wall, keep it no higher than 10 ft / 3 m above the ground. This height maximizes the detection range of your camera’s motion sensor.
Step 1: Utilize a power drill to drill a pilot hole. Utilize the provided anchors (optional) and screws to secure the metallic plate. Anchors are required for brick or concrete walls. Before tightening the screws, ensure that there is sufficient space for the charging cable to pass through.
Step 2: Connect the magnetic base to the metallic plate using the included screws. Attach the Outdoor Cam Pro / Outdoor Cam to the magnetic base using the included screws.
Step 3: Rotate the camera to adjust the view and monitor it via the eufy Security app’s live stream.
For those who do not wish to drill holes in the wall, a 3M adhesive strip is included. After securing the charging cable beneath the metallic plate’s hook, adhere to the metallic plate with the 3M adhesive strip.
Restore Electrical Power
Connect the camera to the power outlet via the USB cable and adapter included. The camera will be connected to the system once it is powered on. When it is connected successfully, the status LED will illuminate solid blue.
For ten seconds, press and hold the SETUP/SYNC button until two beeps are heard. After that, the camera’s default settings will be restored.
After you connect your cameras to your app, you can assign them a location.
There are several excellent locations to mount your Eufy cameras, but ultimately it depends on where you need them most.
Eufy outdoor cameras can be installed both indoors and outdoors. However, if you are sure you’ll never use them outdoors, you can stick with the cheaper indoor models.
Enjoy using your EUFY OutdoorCam camera in the best way!
