INSTALLATION
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE INSTALLATION
• The camera should be installed between 8 and 13ft above the area to be monitored
• Ensure that the camera is installed NO MORE then 100 ft away from the receiver’s position this maintains a
strong signal between the camera and receiver
• Before securing the mount and camera, ensure there are no obstructions in the camera’s view
• Place camera in the most strategic place where it can record detailed video of every visitor. Having the camera
in the open for people to see can help deter criminals
• To cover large, dark areas such as backyards, garages, and driveways, place camera in strategic location, such as
on the roof or deck, this way more area is covered by the camera
• Ensure that the sunshade is positioned to avoid glare, also be sure to position the camera away from direct
sunlight or indoor lighting
• For best results, the light in front of the camera should be about the same brightness as the light around the
area or object being monitored
• Decide whether the camera will be wall-mounted, or mounted on a desk/table top. We recommend that the
mount is secured using the included screws and hardware for all installations
AVOIDING INTERFERENCE
The PX301 utilizes clear signal technology,
meaning that it is designed to avoid the
frequencies of common wireless devices.
By doing so, the system does not receive
interference from any of the standardized
2.4GHz or 5.8 GHz wireless devices within your
home or business.
The signal also passes easily through interior
walls. However, buildings with metal frames
or placing the camera near large metal objects
may cause signal interference. If reception
is poor, moving the camera and/or receiver
closer to one another may fix this problem.
Interference is also possible if another device
within the building (such as a cordless phone)
is operating on the same frequency.

INSTALLATION
MOUNTING THE CAMERA
1. Decide if the camera will be wall-mounted or sitting
on a desk/tabletop. The camera can be adjusted for
many mounting scenarios by rotating it to the required position.
• Keep in mind that the camera is microphone
equipped. If you would like audio recorded, make
sure the camera within a close enough range of
the area being monitored to record any sounds
(within 6 ft)
• Be sure to mount the camera no further then
100ft away from your receiver
• Be sure to mount the camera no further then 8ft
away from a power source
2. Screw the mounting bracket into the camera’s
mounting hole, turning it clockwise.
4. Ensure that the camera is strongly secured into the wall.
5. Adjust camera to the desired viewing angle.
6. For additional help with mounting the camera,
please see the drilling template, located at the back
of the manual.
7. Once you have mounted the camera and placed it at
the desired viewing angle, plug the cameras power
adapter (marked for camera) into the cord on the
camera and then plug the adapter into a power
source. (A surge protected power source is recommended.)
8. Repeat the above steps for all additional cameras.
Note: The above photos are examples of
mounting a camera, your camera will
look different from the above images.
