FAQ
The Gateway does not recognize the camera during discovery mode?
Make sure your Gateway indicates discovery mode and that the camera is using the proper power supply
(9 volt). Press the Discovery button found inside of the battery compartment. If this continues to fail, you will
need to try another location for the camera. You may also try a hard reset by holding down the Discovery button
while powering up the camera. After resetting the camera, please try to discover the camera again.
How far away can the camera see?
Depending on the lighting conditions and the size of the object(s), you can view objects up to 200 feet (60 m)
away with a viewing angle of 80 degrees. The motion sensor is capable of detecting objects up to 12 -14 ft.
(3.5 - 4 m) with a field of view of 80 degrees.
How sensitive is the camera's microphone?
The microphone picks up normal conversation 6 to 10 feet away.
