XPY Bell High-Definition outdoor - Wireless Doorbell - With mobile application.
This article explain the steps to install your XPY Doorbell.
 

 
Primary Steps
Installing the mounting bracket.

1. First choose the location to mount the doorbell camera, preferably one that offers the best viewing angle and Wi-Fi reception. If the Wi-Fi reception is weak, we recommend using a Range Extender or Powerline Adapter. Visit our website www.nexxtsolutions.com  to learn more about these types of products.
2. If wiring to an existing doorbell, make sure that the power source is 9-36V. Unscrew and remove the doorbell from the wall. Carefully disconnect the wires from the doorbell.
3. If dealing with 110/220V, use the provided power adapter or batteries to power up the XPY Bell.
4. Using the mounting bracket as a template, mark the three screw holes with a pencil. 
5. If mounting the device on a stucco, brick or concrete wall, use a masonry bit to drill pilot holes in order to insert the anchors. On wood or drywall, you can skip this steps.
6. Drive the screws into the anchors or directly into the wall until they are flush with the mounting bracket, and the bracket is flat against the surface. Make sure all wires are properly guided through the middle of the bracket.

 

 
Powering your Doorbell
The doorbell has 3 different power configuration:

A. It can run independently on DC power from 4 AA batteries.
B. It can be plugged to an AC outlet using the provided power adapter.
C. It can be hardwired to an existing doorbell connection in your home of up to 36V at 600mA.

Option #1. Set up with the battery.

1. Unfasten the tamper-proof screw with the supplied tool. 

 

2. Slide the battery compartment down and insert the 4 supplied AA batteries, making sure to observe the correct polarity.
3. Close the battery compartment and replace the tamper-proof screw. 

 

 
Option #2. Set up with the AC Adapter. 

1. With a phillips-head, remove the screws from the sea-proof backplate to expose the pin connection block.
2. If using the supplied AC adaptor, please note that the red and black DC cable comes preinstalled in the I/O terminal block, so as to make sure the correct polarity is observed.
3. Connect the power cable extending from the doorbell camera to the cable of the power adapter, making sure the plug is pushed all the way in.
4. Then plug the power adapter to an electrical outlet.

 

 
Option #3. Set up with an existing doorbell with a low voltage transformer.
Warning: It can only be connected to a low voltage transformer or power source with an electrical rating of 9-36V AC/DC. If wiring with an existing chime the power rating of the chime I/O port cannot exceed 24V.

1. Remove the preinstalled cable from the I/O terminal block on the back of the doorbell camera.
2. Insert the wires coming out of the wall that was originally connected to your existing doorbell to the I/O terminal block. If more than 2 wires are present a pair will be used to power the doorbell camera from the low voltage transformer and another pair will be used to wire the chime. Refer to the diagram below.

 
Hardwire power requierment: Maximum 36V AC/DC

 
Additional terminal wiring

1. Door Chime

To connect the device to an existing doorbell installation, follow the diagram below.
NOTE: Chime terminals can only support up to 24V AC/DC

 

 
2. Remote door unlocks.

To open your door remotely from your smartphone, tablet or PC, connect one relay trigger cable into the corresponding terminal block pins, as shown in the diagram.

 

 
NOTE: - Remote door unlock function not supported when is powered by AA batteries.
- For Remote door unlock function to work at 12V/1A, the doorbell must be powered using an AC/DC adapter rated at 15V/1.5A or higher.


3. Electric gate (2/4 type connection)

To open your gate remotely from your smartphone, tablet or PC, connect one relay trigger cable into the corresponding terminal block pins, as shown in the diagram.

 

 
NOTE: - Door and gate unlock functions are not supported when powered by AA batteries.
- For remote door unlock function to work at 12V/1A, the doorbell must be powered using an AC/DC adapter rated at 15V/1.5A or higher.
- Dry contact terminals can only support up to 24V AC/DC sources.


Memory card installation.
The doorbell includes an 8GB micro-SD card to store footage and images captured by the camera. If you want to install a memory card with higher capacity (of up to 32GB), you can do so at this stage.

1. With a phillips-head screwdriver, remove the screws from the seal-proof backplate to expose the I/O terminal block, if you have not yet done so.
2. Slide up to unlock the latch and lift with your fingertips to expose the tray, if you want to remove the included storage device and insert a new one.

 

3. Push down the latch to secure the tray. Finish by replacing the back cover and tighten the screws, as shown in the image.
 

 
Mounting the doorbell onto the bracket

1. Now with the batteries and memory card installed, and the compartments are tightly closed, attach the unit to the mounting bracket, by aligning the tabs on the doorbell with the holes, as shown in the image.
NOTE: At this point, we recommend taking a picture of the QR code located on the back of the doorbell. This will be used during the mobile app setup.

 

 
2. Push the device firmly towards the wall and then down until it clicks in place.
3. Insert the tamper-proof screw from the base of the bracket up through the battery compartment cover hole, so as to secure the device to the mounting locating.
