Set Up with Netvue App

Please add the Vigil Camera onto your Netvue account through the Netvue App before mounting it outside.

Connecting Method

There are two ways of adding Vigil Camera onto the Netvue App: Wireless Connection and Wired Connection.

Wireless connection

Wireless connection uses Wi-Fi to connect the camera to the App. It is the easiest way if the installation spot is close to your router and has a strong Wi-Fi signal. Please note that a thick or insulated wall may weaken the signal dramatically. Before you decide to choose this connection method, check the Wi-Fi signal at your installation spot.


Wired connection

If the Wi-Fi signal strength is weak at your installation spot, the Ethernet cable connection might be your solution. An Ethernet cable is required for this connection method. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into Vigil Cam, and the other end into the LAN port on your router. Then follow the in-app instructions to complete the following setup process.

Vigil Camera Installation

Check the following things before you start to drill holes in your wall:

  1. Vigil Camera has been successfully added to your Netvue App and can stream video.
  2. Have planned the cable route. Measured the length of the power cable and Ethernet cable (if you plan to use an Ethernet connection) you will need.

Step 1: Take off the anti-dust cap. Attach the provided antenna to the Vigil Camera.


Step 2: Find a good installation spot.

  • We recommend installing the Vigil camera just 7-10 feet (2-3 meters) above the ground for a better two-way audio experience.
  • There is a power outlet nearby.
  • Test whether the Vigil camera can stream video smoothly at the spot.
  • Make sure nothing blocks the camera’s sight.


Step 3: Before you start to drill, make sure you know the locations of wall-in pipes and electrical wires. (If you are not comfortable with drilling holes, please consult with a licensed electrician.)

Install Camera on Concrete or Brick:
Use the provided drilling template to mark the position of holes on your wall. Use the provided drill bit to drill three holes, and then install anchors to hold screws.



Install Camera on Wood:
Use the provided drilling template to mark the position of holes on your wall. Directly tighten the included screws to secure the camera.


Step 4 (Wired Connection):

Read this step if you are using a wired connection, otherwise, skip to Step 5. This step requires the skill of making an Ethernet cable. Consult with the electrician if you are not sure how to do it.

A weatherproof tube is needed for the Ethernet cable to avoid leaking water into the Ethernet cable port. Cut off the Ethernet cable at the length you want. Insert the cable into the weatherproof tube, and carefully attach the RJ-45 connector to the cut ends. Test the cable is working before installing.

Things you need:

  • Bare copper Ethernet cable
  • RJ45 connector
  • RJ45 crimping tool


Step 5: Use the hex key to loosen the screws on the hinge. Point the camera in your designated direction, then tighten the screws.

Netvue Vigil Camera uses status lights to communicate.
