Ceiling Clip

Answer to Can You Identify This?:

Although the photo made it challenging to recognize what might have been incorrect about this installation, there is actually nothing wrong here. Many readers might have answered that it was either screwed to the ceiling grid or was installed without the use of a bar and box assembly clipped to the gridwork. The camera is mounted to a UL-listed tee bar hanger. This device makes installation of the camera much easier and in compliance with regulations. The termination is an RJ45 completed inside the camera itself.
