Hardware included

  • Security screw for metal collar
  • Mounting screws
  • Wall anchors
  • Cable clips
  • Cable clip screws


Tools needed

  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Drill (optional)


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

Choose a location close to an outlet.
Make sure your camera is positioned close
enough to an outlet for the length of the
included power cable.

Your camera can be mounted on an outdoor wall,
eave, or overhang.

For optimal motion detection:
Mount the camera about 3 feet (1 meter) from the
middle of the entry point, and about 10 feet (3
meters) above the ground.


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



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” drill bit. Insert
the included wall anchors, then drive the four
mounting screws through the mounting plate into
the wall anchors.

Only use the included mounting screws
when securing the mounting plate.

DO NOT drill into your home’s
electrical wiring.



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


Then, tighten the security screw.


Plug the power adapter into your camera.
Insert the USB-C end of the power adapter into
the back of your camera.



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




Turn on your camera.
Plug the power adapter into a power outlet.

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 screws.
Tighten the security screw on the metal collar to
secure the camera position.

Then, tighten the security screw on the bottom of
your camera to secure the battery compartment.



Secure the power cable.
Use the provided cable clips to secure the cable
on your wall.

Use a 1/4” drill bit to pre-drill holes in the wall and
insert the provided anchors first if installing on a
masonry surface, like stucco or brick.


The power cable can be painted to match
your wall.

Secure the adapter.
Secure the power adapter to the wall with the
included mounting screws.
