or region where the camera is used.


For installation or inspection of this camera, consult the dealer where you purchased

the product.

• This installation should be made by a qualified service person and should conform to

all local codes.

• When installing on a ceiling, make sure the surface is capable of withstanding the total

weight of the camera and ceiling plates and is sufficiently reinforced if necessary.

• Periodically check the parts and screws for rust and to see if they have loosened, in

order to prevent injuries and equipment damage due to falling items.

• Do not install in unstable places, places subject to significant vibration or impact, or

places subject to salt damage or corrosive gas.

• Be sure to attach the safety wire when installing the camera.

Failure to do so may result in the camera falling or other accidents.

• Do not touch the edge of metal parts with bare hands.
• Be careful not to trap your fingers during installation of the camera.

Injury may result.


• Do not install the camera on an unstable surface.
• To maximize shock resistant specifications, do not install on insufficiently strong

surfaces or surfaces subject to significant vibration (VB-H610VE/VB-M600VE).

• Take measures to remove static electricity before performing any procedures.

Malfunction may result.

• Take care not to damage wiring or pipes in the room.

Damage to peripheral items may result.

Precautions for Installing the Camera Outdoors (VB-H610VE/VB-M600VE)

When installing the VB-H610VE/VB-M600VE outdoors, observe the following precautions to retain

waterproof/dustproof capabilities.


Position the
wiring hole
straight down

• Be sure to install the camera under eaves or other places out of

direct sunlight.

• Install the camera in a place unexposed to long periods of direct


• When mounting the camera onto a wall or other upright surface,

position the wiring hole straight down to prevent rain infiltration.

• If wiring the camera through the wiring hole on the bottom, use

silicone sealant or a rubber mat to ensure waterproofing. Also

use an insect repellent sponge if necessary.

• If wiring with a composite pipe (NPT 3/4 inch threaded hole)

attached to the wiring hole, wrap teflon tape around the tip of the

pipe, clear any debris from the wiring hole and firmly tighten the

pipe. Apply silicone sealant after attaching the pipe.

• Firmly fix the dome case to the main unit of the camera with the lock screws, taking care not to

pinch cables between the main unit and dome case.

Precautions for Use


• If you discover defective conditions such as smoke, strange sounds, heat or strange

odors, immediately stop using the camera and contact your closest dealer.

Fire or electric shock may result from continued use of the product.

• Do not disassemble or modify the camera.
• Do not damage the connecting cable.
• Do not spill water or other liquid inside the camera, spray the camera with water, or

otherwise make it wet.

• Do not insert foreign objects into the camera.
• Do not use flammable sprays near the camera.
• Do not leave LAN cables, external power supplies or AC adapter (sold separately) power

connectors connected when the camera is not in use for long periods.

• Do not use flammable solvents such as alcohol, paint thinner or benzine when cleaning

the camera.

Fire or electric shock may result.

Notes on Power Supply


• Only use the dedicated AC Adapter PA-V17/PA-V18 (sold separately) for AC power.
• Do not set any heavy objects on the power cable.
• Do not pull, forcibly bend, scratch, or modify the power cable.
• Do not cover or wrap the AC adapter (sold separately) with cloth or blankets.

Fire or electric shock may result.

Be sure to read the user manual for the PA-V17/PA-V18 (sold separately) before use.


• After turning off the power, wait for at least five seconds before turning the power on

again. If the power is turned on again too quickly, the camera may operate poorly.
