Tools needed


  • Phillips-head screwdriver

Note: Remove protective film from device. This ensures your device works properly.

Remove the battery.
Twist the battery compartment counterclockwise to unlock
and remove the cover.


Then, remove the battery and discard the orange
battery insulator.

Charge the battery.
Plug it into a power source using the provided USB cable.
Once the battery’s fully charged, only one light on top will
glow green.


Re-insert the battery.
Slide the battery back into the camera until it clicks
into place.


Twist the battery compartment cover clockwise to lock it
and tighten the security screw.


Choose a location with the view you want.
Your camera can be mounted on an outdoor wall,
eave, or overhang.

If installing on a wall...
Your camera comes ready to mount, with the ball joint
pointing down. No adjustments are needed.


If installing on an eave or overhang...
Remove the battery compartment cover by twisting it
counterclockwise and insert the ball joint plate with the ball
joint pointing up.


Remove the mounting plate.
Slide it down to remove it from the camera mount.


Install the mounting plate.
For wall installation, the UP arrow should point up. For an
eave or overhang, the arrow should point toward the area
you want to monitor for motion.

If installing on a wood surface, screw the plate directly into
the wall.

If installing on a masonry surface, mark four screw holes
using the plate as a guide.

Drill pilot holes using a 1/4” (6mm) drill bit. Insert the
included wall anchors, then drive the four mounting screws
through the mounting plate into the wall anchors.

WARNING! Only use the included mounting screws
when securing the mounting plate.
CAUTION! DO NOT drill into your home’s electrical wiring.

Attach the camera mount.
Slide it onto the mounting plate.


Then, tighten the security screw.


Attach your camera to the camera mount.
Loosen the metal collar on the bracket using a Phillips-head
screwdriver (not included). Push the ball joint into the socket
until it snaps into place.


Adjust the camera angle.
Rotate the camera to focus on the area of your choice. Look
at Live View in the Ring app to make sure it’s positioned at
your desired angle.

Tighten the security screw.
Then, tighten the screw on the metal collar to secure the
camera position.
