You can simply place ROCK CG6 on a horizontal surface on its own without the mounting plate if there is no risk of a fall or angle requirement. Otherwise, you shall fix the camera to the mounting plate.

1. Select a good spot

Select a good spot for your camera, place or install the camera in a position where its view is not blocked and ensure that it is within the coverage of your Wi-Fi network.

Tip: Check your camera's video stream with the rockhome app. The PIR sensor is more sensitive to movements across the camera's field of view than movements toward or away from the camera.

2. Install the mounting plate

Hold the plate against where you want to mount your camera and mark the holes with a pencil. Drill in the screw holes. Then, insert the plastic expansion tubes into holes, place the plate on the surface and screw the mounting screws into the expansion tubes.
