How to ennroll a camera or video device to your Alarm.com account

To enroll a camera, connect the camera to the local network, then associate the camera with the Alarm.com account.

There are three local options for connecting video devices to the network:

  • Ethernet,
  • Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) Mode, and
  • Access Point (AP) Mode.

Some video devices can only be connected using some of those options, so verify which methods are supported before beginning the enrollment process.

Pre-enrollment checklist:

  • AC power adapter (required for non-PoE connections)
  • Broadband (Cable, DSL or Fiber Optic) internet connection with a router
  • A computer or mobile device with internet access
  • An Ethernet/Cat5 cable (if using an Ethernet-capable camera)
  • Alarm.com account access through the ADC Website, or ADC mobile app.

Enroll the video device to the Alarm.com account

Once the video device is connected to an internet network, it can be associated to a Alarm.com account using the Alarm.com mobile app or Alarm.com Website.

To enroll the video device using the Alarm.com mobile app installation wizard:

  1. Log into the ADC mobile app.
  2. Tap **Menu
  3. Tap Video.
  4. Tap Settings
  5. Tap Add Video Device.
  6. Tap Install for the desired video device to be installed.
  7. Follow the on-screen prompts for installing the video device.

To enroll the video device using the Alarm.com Website:

  1. Log into the Alarm.com Website.
  2. Click Video.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Click Add Video Device.
  5. Find the desired video device in the list and enter a name for the video device.
  6. Next to the desired video device, click Install. The video device appears in the list automatically when it is on the same local network as the device performing the installation. If the video device is missing from the list:
  • Enter the MAC address found on the video device’s label, and then click Find.

    • Note: For the 2GIG HD100, use its ETH MAC address.
  • In the device name field, enter a name for the video device.

  • Click Install.

  1. After the device is successfully installed, the camera settings are configurable using the Alarm.com Website. If the video device needs a Wi-Fi connection but was installed using an Ethernet cable, the video device’s Wi-Fi settings need to be configured through the Video tab.
  2. Power down the video device, and install it in its final location using the included hardware.
