CHOOSING A CAMERA MOUNTING LOCATION
The Camera included with the 45232 Monitor
system can be positioned on a desktop, or mounted
to a wall. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
When choosing a mounting location, please be
advised:
• Do not use in wet locations. If using outside,
position camera in a sheltered location.
• Do not position the camera so that it points
directly into the sun or any bright light, as this
may cause damage to the camera.
• Avoid viewing areas where half the area is in
bright sunlight and the other half is dark, such
as in the shadow of a building. All types of
cameras have difficulty “seeing” into areas of
such divergent light levels.
• In low light conditions, the camera will
automatically activate the Infrared (IR) LED’s
and switch the camera to Night Vision mode.
Night Vision viewing distance is up to 10 feet.
CONNECTING TO THE MONITOR
Before beginning installation, we recommend that
you temporarily connect the Camera to the 5.5”
Monitor to help familiarize yourself with the camera
system and select the best location for installing the
4
camera. The camera connects to any of the video
inputs (1-4) on the back of the monitor. This system
will accommodate up to 4 cameras. The monitor
supplies power to each of the cameras.
1. Plug the power adapter into the power jack on
the back of the monitor, then into an AC outlet.
2. Turn on the monitor by pressing the ‘Power’
button on the front of the unit and set the volume to
midpoint.
3. Select the appropriate “channel” (1-4) on the
monitor that corresponds to the input (1-4) the
camera lead is connected. (See Channel Selection).
4. Adjust the sound level at the front of the monitor
with the volume control knob. Brightness/Contrast
5
and Vertical Hold can be adjusted with controls at
the back of the monitor.
CHANNEL (CAMERA) SELECTION
Manual Mode
To select one of
the four channels
manually, press the
MANUAL button on
the front panel of the
Monitor. The green
LED will light for
the corresponding
AUTO
MANUAL
channel. The Monitor
will switch to a different channel (1, 2, 3, 4) each time
the MANUAL button is pressed. When you have
selected the channel with the active camera, that
video will appear on the monitor screen.
Auto Cycle Mode
To have the Monitor automatically switch between
active channels, press the AUTO button on the front
panel of the Monitor. The green LED will light and the
Monitor will automatically select between the active
cameras. The monitor will display images from both
cameras alternately. The Monitor will only search
active channels (channels with cameras connected).
6
Cycle Time Setting
(Time interval between camera selections)
The default cycle time for the receiver is preset to
4 seconds. To change the cycle time, press both of
the buttons (Auto & Manual) on front of the receiver
simultaneously. The Monitor will beep. Each beep
is one extra second of cycle time added. The cycle
time can be verified by the number of flashes the
LED makes when you release the buttons—one
flash equals one second. Cycle time can be set
between 2-30 seconds.
Infra-Red
(IR) LEDs
NIGHT VISION
The 45233 Wireless Color
Camera features Night
Vision technology. Objects
and images can be seen in
little or no light up to 10 ft.
The camera uses a special
Sensor
image sensor that
automatically detects
available light levels.
It turns on/off the Infra-Red (IR) LEDs on the front of
the camera. These LEDs provide artificial light that
allows the camera to ‘see’ in the dark. Night Vision
will appear as a Black and White image. When the
image sensor detects enough light, color will return
to the images.

INSTALLATION
Once your preferred camera mounting location has
been chosen, disconnect the camera lead and turn
off power to the monitor before proceeding.
Desktop Mount:
1. Place camera in desired location on a flat surface.
2. Run the 60’ cable from the camera’s location to

puncture or cut the cable when securing. Do not run
cable inside walls.
3. Switch on the power to the TV, VCR or DVR. Select
appropriate AV input on TV, VCR or DVR. (Refer to

where possible, in order to reduce the risk of picture
and audio interference.

covering must be used to prevent the cable from being
damaged, stepped on or becoming a tripping hazard.

ft. with additional cable (not supplied.) Remember
this when choosing a location for the camera. An
additional 60 ft. extension cable is available: contact
