You need to drill a hole in the mounting panel to lead out the external power supply wire.
- Fix SmartBracket to the surface with bundled screws. If using any other attaching hardware, make sure that they do not damage or deform the panel.
Using the double-sided adhesive tape is not recommended either for a temporary nor permanent fixing.
- Put StreetSiren on the SmartBracket panel and turn it clockwise. Fix the device with a screw. Fixing the siren to the panel with a screw makes it difficult for intruders to remove the device quickly.
