The camera arrived in an orange and white box just large enough to contain the IP70 camera, AC power adapter, network cable, software CD, start up guide, and 3 screws with wall plugs. The camera itself was wrapped in medium thickness bubble wrap to protect the device in transit. Sadly many items contained in a box this size are easily damaged or destroyed in the shipping process, luckily Compro choose to protect the device sufficiently. Everything needed to setup & install the device quickly and easily was included right in the box. Some other similar devices do not include a paper start guide, screws & wall plugs, or a software CD. Other manufacturers require you to go online and download the install software, viewer client, and/or manual.
I would recommend attaching the base to your final mounting location as the overall unit is rather lightweight and the power/internet cable may inadvertently pull and move the camera if simply left sitting on the stand. The stand is a T shape metal piece with a plastic snap on cover, again in black plastic but is a glossy finish compare to the flat matte finish on the main camera body. Once the plastic cover is removed, the stand has 3 pre-drilled mounting holes to aid in wall or ceiling mounting the camera. After you screw the base in place simply replace the snap on black cover leaving you with a clean professional looking installation.
