Before You Start
Tools required include: #2 Phillips screwdriver, T10 Torx wrench (included), and means to make the mounting hole (120 mm hole saw, 5” hole saw, or hand saw for sheetrock).
The HALO unit requires a wired network connection (Ethernet) which includes standard 802.3af PoE power. This connection should not be longer than 300 ft (100M).
HALO should be located on a ceiling or high on a wall (to limit casual access). HALO should be in an area relatively free of air currents. Avoid HVAC exhaust or return ducts, fans, and areas near the door between two rooms. HALO mounting should avoid areas with signiﬁcant background noise or vibration.
Please consult your technical reseller or IPVideo Corporation for advice on speciﬁc situations.
Ascertain that the ceiling material is between 0.06” (3 mm) and 0.75” (19 mm) in thickness. Make the required 120 mm or 5.0” hole in the ceiling. Clean up and make certain that dust or material from this operation does not come into proximity of the HALO unit. Use this full-scale template to check your dimensions before cutting.
Bring the connectorized network connection through the hole and allow it to dangle. Use the Torx wrench to remove the 3 screws holding the HALO outer cover. Plug the network cable into the RJ-45 jack on the side of the HALO unit.
After 10-15 seconds the green LED in the lower left corner should commence blinking, indicating a good network connection and power availability. Carefully insert the HALO unit into the hole, taking care not to damage the network cable.
Use the #2 Phillips screwdriver to tighten the two screws in the ﬂange. This action ﬁrst rotates the locking wings to an extended position and then pulls them down to secure the unit. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN these screws.
Replace the HALO outer cover and use the Torx wrench to tighten the (3) securing screws.
The ﬁnal steps are to use the HALO ﬁnder software (on a Windows computer) on the same network as the HALO unit to locate the unit on the network and change the unit’s network conﬁguration in accordance with the facility network plan.
