So I recently tried to install the ADC-721w camera on the side of my house to watch my garage. I ended up cutting the attached cord just above the little splitter knob thing so that I could fish the wire through the wall and splice it directly onto the power adapter cord and plug it in indoors.
I was a bit perplexed to see three wires in this cord… black, white, and yellow. I tried splicing these to the included power adapter in a variety of different configurations and could not get the device to power up. I obviously started with the white wire from the camera to the positive on the adapter, and black to negative… but maybe something needs to happen with the yellow wire?
When this thing powers up an LED should light up on the device and a wifi network should be created, yes?
Not sure what to do, hopefully I didn’t just brick a $300 camera…
