How do I wall mount my FLIR FX camera?

Instructions on wall mounting the camera depend on if you have an indoor camera (for example FXV101-H) or outdoor camera (FXV101-W or FXAW01 accessory).

Mounting the indoor camera

The indoor stand allows you to simply mount the camera to a wall. An extra mounting plate is provided so you can have a permanent mounting place for the camera while still being able to move the camera around when needed.

Before mounting the camera, determine the best mounting position to get a view of the area you want. Ensure the power cable is long enough to power the camera.

CAUTION: Keep the cables at least 3ft / 1m away from baby cribs and out of reach of children and infants. Use the included cable clips to help manage the cables.

To mount the indoor camera to the wall:

  1. Using a coin, turn the mounting plate on the bottom of the indoor stand counter-clockwise to remove it from the base.

  2. Use a pencil to mark holes for the mounting screws.

  3. Drill holes where marked using a drill. Tap the included anchors into the holes gently using a hammer. Attach the mounting plate to the wall using the included mounting screws.

  4. Attach the camera stand to the mounting plate. Make sure the locking mechanism on the plate lines up with the indent in the camera stand. Twist the camera stand clockwise to secure it to the mounting plate.

Installing the outdoor camera

The outdoor housing allows you to install the camera to a wall or ceiling both indoors and outdoors. Before permanently installing the camera, it is recommended to complete the setup using the FLIR FX app to connect the camera to your WiFi network.

It is also a good idea to install the camera in an area with a strong WiFi signal from your router. You can check the WiFi signal using the signal indicator on your smartphone or tablet. Click here for WiFi installation tips.

CAUTION: If you are installing the camera outdoors, you must connect the power adapter to a sheltered power outlet.

To install the outdoor camera:

  1. Use the included mounting template to drill holes on your wall or ceiling.

  2. Gently tap the included anchors into the holes using a hammer.
