CAUTION the bubble to the camera.
8. Make sure that the camera is firmly secured to the ceiling.
9. Connect the power cable to the camera. (Refer to Figure 4.)
a. Insert the provided green terminal block into the Power
connector on the camera cable.
b. Insert the red and black wires from one end of the power cable
(not included) into the terminal block, ensuring that like-colored
wires (+ and –) are aligned with those on the Power connector.
Secure both wires by tightening the screws on the terminal block.
c. Similarly, secure both wires from the other end of the power cable
onto the screw terminals of the power adapter, ensuring that like
wires (+ and –) are aligned with the others.
10. Plug the power adapter into an AC power outlet.
11. Verify that the camera is active on the wireless network and is
recognized by Pulse.
Smart IR Function
The MDC835 uses a smart IR function for night viewing. This means that
the camera automatically adjusts the IR light output and gain. As a result,
if any objects are in the close foreground of the image, the camera
lowers the IR light output to prevent overexposing those objects. The
drawback of the smart IR function is that this feature causes background
objects to receive less IR light and to be displayed with lessened detail.
This result is typical for the smart IR function.
Therefore, to get the best video quality for targets at night, make sure
that the camera’s field of view does not include a large foreground
object, such as tabletop, side wall or column. If installing on a tabletop,
place the camera as close to the edge as possible. If installing on a wall,
angle the camera so that a minimal portion of the wall or column is
visible.
