You use the Genetec hardmount when you want to permanently install the SharpX cameras on your vehicle. The hardmount is the base for the SharpX pan/tilt mount.


  1. Place one of the rubber mounting gaskets on the threaded base block and hold the assembly underneath the mounting location.
    Tip: After you align the gasket and base block, hold them in together using a piece of electrical tape.
  2. On the roof of the vehicle, align the second gasket on the mounting location, followed by the upper block.
  3. Use the hex key wrench to help align the screw holes.
  4. Insert the four flat-head socket-cap screws into the mounting holes and tighten them using a diagonal pattern.


Here is an example of how to install the mount:
