Installing the Camera
Before you install the camera, carefully plan where and how
it will be positioned, and where you will route the cable that
connects the camera to the power adapter.

    •     Before starting permanent installation, verify its
          performance by observing the image on a monitor
          when camera is positioned in the same
          location/position where it will be permanently
          installed
    •     The cameras are pre-paired so they work out of the
          box. Each camera has a channel number sticker                           Figure 2.0 Verify camera channel before
          indicating what channel they are paired to (figure                      mounting.
          2.0). To manually pair your cameras, see Appendix C
          on page 57.


Installation Warnings
    •     Mount the camera indoors or outdoors. For outdoor
          installation, mount it in a sheltered place where it is
          not directly exposed to rain or snow.
    •     Aim the Cameras to best optimize the viewing area:
          Select a location for the camera that provides a
          clear view of the area you want to monitor, which is
          free from dust, and is not in line-of-sight to a strong                 Figure 2.1 Attach stand to mounting surface
          light source or direct sunlight
    •     Avoid installing the cameras where there are thick
          walls or obstructions between the Cameras and the
          Receiver*
    •     Select a location for the camera that has an ambient
          temperature between 14°F~122°F (-10°C ~ 50°C)

Screen Saver Mode
Use the Screen Saver mode to conceal the fact that the LCD receiver is actually a surveillance
recorder. The system comes pre-loaded with five scenic images that let the LCD receiver
simulate a picture frame. When motion is detected by a camera, the LCD receiver will display
the triggered camera in single channel full-screen.
       NOTE: The images are loaded to the system firmware, not the SD card. Formatting the SD card
       will not delete the Screen Saver images on the system.

To enable Screen Saver mode:

   Menu.
2. From the Main Menu, select Setting and
   press the Enter button.
3. From the Settings menu, select Screen
   Saver and press the Enter button.

   Blank screen or Picture 1~5 and press the
   Enter button.
       NOTE: Select “Blank Screen” as a power
       saving option.                                      Figure 5.3 Screen Saver menu

Motion Detection
With the Screen Saver activated, motion detection is enabled on the system. When motion is
detected by one of the cameras, the LCD receiver will display the triggered camera in single-
channel full-screen, and the motion alarm will beep, but the system will not record. When the
motion trigger is finished, the system will return to Screen Saver mode.
         NOTE: Unless the REC stamp appears on-screen, the system is NOT recording.

2. Perform one of the following:
      ƒ   Enable Quad Mode (recommended): Press the
          Quad button. When motion is detected, the
          system will display the triggered camera on-
          screen. When motion recording is complete, the
          view will return to Quad Mode.
      ƒ   Enable Auto Sequence Viewing Mode: Press the CHANNEL—A button. When motion is
          detected, the system will display the triggered camera on-screen. When motion
          recording is over, Auto Sequence Viewing Mode will continue as normal.
      ƒ   Change channels manually: Press the CHANNEL—M button on the wireless receiver or
          remote control to select a channel.

     ATTENTION: If you manually select a channel while the system is in Motion Recording
     Mode, motion recording will ONLY apply to the selected channel. For example, with

     view of camera 1, the system would NOT RECORD video from channel 1.


3. Press the Motion button again to stop Motion Recording. “AUTO REC” will turn off on the
   receiver.




30
The “REC” indicator will only appear when motion is detected by one of the cameras on-screen.

details on adjusting the motion recording time, see “Trigger Record” on page 41.


When Should I Use Motion Recording?
   •   Low traffic areas or non-sensitive/non-critical recording environments
   •   Overnight recording
       NOTE: In the event of a power failure, the system will restart in Auto Sequence Mode + Motion
       Recording when power is restored. For more details, see “Appendix G: Power Failure” on page 62.


Recording Tip!
If you are using more than one camera, it is highly recommended to use Quad Mode with Motion
Recording. Quad Mode allows you to see all four cameras at once. When motion is detected, the
triggered camera will appear on-screen. After motion recording is complete, the receiver will
return to Quad Mode.
