MV72 Query

Random question but can someone please post a picture of the bottom of an MV72 camera. I have a feeling my installers might not have followed the instructions and butchered a new camera......

 

Google image search hasn't provided me any help.

 

Thanks!

It's actually quite a bit different. The MV72 has a pig tail, so no need to route cable through housing. I suspect they took it apart? Smiley Happy

Re: MV72 Query

Oh I see, my bad!

 

I think it's pretty similar. The difference is that there's no turn to lock system to mount the camera to the mounting plate. The mounting pegs of the mouting plate are longer and actually protrude through the camera housing. They need to be secured with TX screws instead. Unfortunately I don't have an MV72 at hand, so I can't help you with a picture.

 

What do you think they did to butcher it?

I didn't Smiley Tongue. Unfortunately It doesn't show the actual installation of the AP, nor the bottom of the camera. Only the gland.

Re: MV72 Query

I just got an MV72 the other day. I had to RMA it, no video at all =(

Still waiting for the new one. Thing is heavy and larger than I expected lol

Also fun note, that waterproof ethernet guard thing only works for ethernet cables that have the short RJ45 adapter.

Any long ones that look nice won't fit.

Yeh I think they're really meant for when you are running new outdoor Cat cable and your cabling vendor is doing the termination (not on pre-made molded cables, which tend to be indoor anyway).

Re: MV72 Query

Thank you @DonAnnett . Yes they have butchered it. Mine now looks like this and has a few extra holes in it.....

Re: MV72 Query

@NolanHerring  Yes they didnt bother to read the instructions or look through the box so missed the mounting bracket. 

 

Expensive mistake on their part.

Re: MV72 Query

But even then they could've used the holes that are already there... I really don't get it.

Re: MV72 Query

Neither do I. Either read the manual, Ask for help or turn the job down it as simple as that.
