Place the receiver cradle or receiver in a place that will have clear
reception with your camera(s).
Plug the AC adaptor power output cable into the 9V POWER input of
the cradle or receiver. Plug the power plug into a wall outlet or surge protector.
Leave the receiver to charge for 6 hours prior to first time use so the built-in rechargeable receiver battery is fully charged. DO NOT remove the power cable from the receiver / from the cradle during initial charge process. After initial charge, charge the receiver as required.
If you wish to view the receiver images on a larger screen, connect the included AV cable to the cradle or receiver, and connect the other end of the cable to the Video IN (Yellow) and Audio IN (White) ports on the TV, VCR or other viewing/
recording device.
NOTE: the purpose of the AV output is for convenience only. When using with large screen TV/Monitor, the picture might be grainy as the camera limits video resolution to VGA (640x480 pixels). This is not a product defect. For best performance use with TV/Monitor PIP (Picture in Picture) function.
Check your TV/Monitor product manual to see if this feature is available on your TV/Monitor. This allows you to view TV or other video source
and see video from the camera in a small window on the same screen.

Camera installation
Connecting wireless camera adapter
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 adaptor. Before starting permanent installation, verify its performance by observing the image on the receiver when
camera is positioned in the same location/position where it will be permanently installed
and the receiver is placed in the location where it will be used most of the time.
The camera can be powered either by using the provided power adaptor, or using
batteries (requires 4 AA type batteries, not included). NOTE: Wireless cameras
require a power source (either an electrical outlet or battery power) to operate.
If you plan to permanently mount the camera in a location, it is recommended to
use the included camera power adaptor to prevent interruptions in the image, as
using battery power is intended as a temporary power solution.
Installation Warnings:
Aim the camera(s) 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 light source or direct sunlight.
Avoid installing the cameras with thick walls, or obstructions between the cameras
and the receiver.
Power adaptor
Connect the power adaptor to the camera. Make sure the power adaptor is placed
into a grounded outlet or surge bar to protect the camera from power fluctuations.
Installation of the camera
1
Carefully unpack the camera.
NOTE: If you are installing cameras that did not come with the system, please
see the camera pairing section of this manual for details on installation.
2
Mount the camera to the wall. Mark the position of the screw holes on the wall,
and drill holes and insert 2 screws, then firmly attach the camera to the wall by
placing the stand over the installed screws and pushing the base downwards.
Connecting the power adapter to the
9V input on the back of the camera.
NOTE: The camera can also be placed on a flat surface, such as a table or
shelf, and no mounting hardware is required.
3
Adjust the viewing angle of the camera.
Position the base holes over the
screws. Slide the base down to
lock the base in place.
Battery
1
Remove the battery cover of the base of the camera.
Insert 4 AA batteries (not included) into the Battery Pack. Make sure to cor2
rectly line up the Positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the batteries.
3
Place the battery pack cover back on.
NOTE: If the camera is plugged in with the AC adaptor, the batteries will not be
used. The batteries are intended for short term, portable camera use only.

Power Saving
The Power Saving Menu is used to turn off the screen at a predetermined time, to save battery. This function can be set to 1 minute, 2
minutes, 5 minutes, 10 minutes, or disabled by selecting cancel. The
monitor will go to black screen to save battery after the time you have
set (1minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes or 10 minutes). It will be activated by pushing any button on the front panel of monitor or by higher
sound detected by cameras. If it is activated by pushing any button
(except OK button) on front panel of monitor, the monitor will go back
to black screen after the time you set if there is no sound trigger during
that time. If it is activated by higher sound (sound trigger), it will go
back to black screen about 8 seconds after the last trigger.
NOTE: It is highly recommended to pair the cameras to the receiver before
permanently mounting the cameras.
A/V Out Menu
The A/V Out menu option is used to adjust the resolution
quality of the image sent to the viewing device (such as a TV,
VCR or Monitor). Use the UP and DOWN  arrows to select
a resolution, and press OK to accept. It is strongly recommended to use the “High” setting to ensure the best image
reproduction on large screens – the default setting is “High”.
