Installation Requirements

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Drill and 6 mm (1/4″) bit for drywall anchors and 3 mm (1/8″) for screws)
  • Category 5e (or above) Ethernet cable

Note: When using the Outdoor Cover, use an Ethernet cable without a strain-relief boot on the connector. This will prevent unnecessary tension on the cable ends during installation.

Outdoor Installation Requirements

IMPORTANT: When installed outdoors, the camera must be installed in the upright postion only.

  • Mount the camera in the upright position only. Please see diagram below.
  • Shielded Category 5e (or above) cabling with drain wire should be used for all outdoor wired Ethernet connections and should be grounded through the AC ground of the PoE. We recommend that you protect your networks from harmful outdoor environments and destructive ESD events with industrial‑grade, shielded Ethernet cable from Ubiquiti Networks.
  • Surge protection should be used for all outdoor installations. We recommend that you use two Ethernet Surge Protectors, model ETH‑SP‑G2, one near the UVC‑G3‑Flex and the other at the entry point to the building. The ETH‑SP‑G2 will absorb power surges and safely discharge them into the ground.
