CHAPTER 1
Introduction
This chapter describes the product features and components of the SmartReach™ wireless network.
The Smart-Reach wireless network is for use with the Explorer series of
Mobile Digital Video Recording (DVR) Systems from Seon Design, which
includes the EX4 and EX8 family of products.
Introduction
1.1. About the Smart-Reach Wireless Network
What is a SmartReach wireless
network?
The Smart-Reach wireless LAN (local area network) is a communication system
designed for mobile applications.
In a standard Smart-Reach wireless network, as shown in Figure 1-1, a SmartReach vehicle station and a small mobile antenna are installed onboard a vehicle
with an Explorer DVR. Another Smart-Reach unit is located in the office with a
terminal antenna to create the base station. The base station is the connection
point that ties wireless communication devices into a network.
Using this system, the surveillance footage on the DVRs can be accessed by a
qualified user from the base station while the vehicle is in the yard.
The Smart-Reach wireless network is based on the IEEE 802.11b and 802.11g
wireless standards to provide a secure, high-speed connection. Password
protection and wireless encryption help to ensure that all communication can only
be accessed by authorized personnel.
Customizing the
Smart-Reach
network
The Smart-Reach network has the robustness to service a fleet of one vehicle or
several vehicles. A variety of antennas are available depending on your
application and site requirements.

CHAPTER 2
Installation
This chapter provides information and procedures for installing the SmartReach wireless local area network (WLAN). The steps include installing:
• the Smart-Reach and WLAN mobile antenna onboard a vehicle.
• the Smart-Reach and WLAN terminal antenna at the base station.
Installation
2.1. Installing the Smart-Reach Wireless LAN
When planning the installation of the Smart-Reach wireless network, select a dry
indoor location for the Smart-Reach unit where the unit is not exposed to
moisture. Install the Smart-Reach within proximity of the antenna, which is
designed to be mounted in an outdoor location.
In a standard network, as shown in Figure 2-1, the Smart-Reach vehicle station is
installed onboard the vehicle within three feet of the mobile antenna for optimum
signal performance. The Smart-Reach base station is installed in the yard office
with a terminal antenna.
Important: Installers should be qualified electricians with data communications
experience. If you need assistance with identifying qualified contractors in your area,
please contact Seon Design for more information.
Before beginning the installation, assemble all the necessary system components
and inspect the units for any scratches or damage. Use the appropriate tools for the
installation.

2.3. Installing the Smart-Reach Vehicle Station and
Antenna
The Smart-Reach vehicle station is clearly labelled and is meant to be installed on
the vehicle. The vehicle station is configured before the product is shipped to the
customer. To change the configuration, see Chapter 3, “Network Configuration”.
The WLAN mobile antenna is installed on the roof of the vehicle. The antenna is
provided with a coaxial cable to connect to the Smart-Reach. For optimum signal
reception, use the antenna cable provided with the Smart-Reach. Longer cables
can be obtained; however, a longer antenna cable results in a weaker signal
strength, which means a shorter wireless range, similar to voltage losses which
occur on long transmission lines.
2.3.1. Step 1: Choosing a Location for the WLAN Mobile Antenna
The location of the antenna will affect the performance of the wireless network.
Install the antenna in a outdoor location that meets the requirements described in
Table 2-1:
Table 2-1 WLAN mobile antenna location requirements
Location requirement
Description
Close to the Smart-Reach
vehicle station on the vehicle.
The transmitting antenna must be within 3 feet
(1 meter) of the Smart-Reach unit on the vehicle.
Requires 3 feet (1 meter) of
clearance from other antennas.
The WLAN mobile antenna must have 3 feet
(1 meter) of clearance from any other antenna on the
vehicle, such as a GPS antenna or a radio antenna
used for onboard communication.
Requires a clear line-of-sight
view.
The onboard antenna requires a clear line-of-sight
view to the receiving antenna in the base station. The
antenna cannot be obstructed.
Important: Microwave ovens and cordless phones, for example, and other wireless
networks use the same 2.4 GHz frequency band as Smart-Reach. When too many devices
are being used simultaneously, signal interference can occur and affect performance.

2.3.2. Step 2: Installing the Mounting Assembly for the Antenna
The following procedure summarizes the mounting assembly installation. For
complete identification of parts and an illustrated procedure, see the product
documentation that is included with the Radiall/Larsen WLAN mobile LPT 2400
NMOHFW antenna.
To install the mounting assembly:
1. Drill a ¾" hole on a flat and metallic surface of the vehicle.
A fiberglass surface is less than optimal for installing the mounting assembly.
If the vehicle skin is not metal, Seon Design will provide a ground plane,
which is tin-plated copper. Contact Seon Design for more information.
2. Metal-to-metal contact between the vehicle and the mount will provide the
best performance. Remove any burrs on the under side of the hole.
3. Screw the locking nut onto the mounting assembly, and twist the nut
one-and-a-half turns. Feed the coax cable and the serrated part of the
mounting assembly through the hole, going from the bottom to topside of the
hole.
4. Pull up on the locking nut, and place the mounting step into proper alignment
in the hole. Continue pulling the locking nut upwards and tighten the nut until
it is finger tight. Check that the O ring between the locking nut and mounting
assembly is seated properly.
5. Holding the mounting assembly with a spanner wrench or long nose pliers,
use an adjustable or open end wrench on the locking nut and tighten firmly
(60 in-lbs. or 6.8 Nm maximum). Do not overtighten.

2.3.3. Step 3: Mounting the WLAN Mobile Antenna
To mount the WLAN mobile antenna:
1. Place the required gasket on the base of the antenna.
2. Align the antenna threads with the threads of the base and turn slowly.
3. Stop turning when the antenna feels snug on the base. Do not overtighten.
Figure 2-3 Stacking order on the mounting assembly
2.3.4. Step 4: Mounting the Smart-Reach
The typical mounting location for the Smart-Reach vehicle station will be inside a
vehicle’s electrical panel or header panel, within three feet of the antenna.
CAUTION: Equipment damage
Smart-Reach is rated for indoor use only and must be mounted in a dry location. Do not
expose the Smart-Reach to moisture.
The Smart-Reach unit can be installed in any orientation as long as the front and
back panel connections are accessible. Four mounting points are located on the

the circumstances, in Seon’s sole and arbitrary opinion, free of charge, any defective products returned
prepaid. In the event purchaser has a problem with any Seon product, please call and request a RETURN
AUTHORIZATION (RA) NUMBER from the Service Department.
Please call 877-630-7366 or (604) 941-0880 and ask for the Service Department. Be sure to have the model
number, serial number and the nature of the problem available for the customer service representative. Prior
authorization MUST be obtained for all returns, exchanges, or credits. ITEMS SHIPPED TO SEON WITHOUT A
CLEARLY IDENTIFIED RA NUMBER MAY BE REFUSED.
Products returned will be tested to verify the defect. Upon verification of the defect, the product will be
repaired or exchanged, or the purchase price will be refunded or credited to the customer’s account, at the sole
option of Seon. In the event of replacement, the returned product will be credited to the customer’s account
and a new invoice issued for the replacement item. Seon reserves the right to refund the purchase price or to
issue a credit only in lieu of replacement.
Seon may use new or refurbished replacement parts for repairing its products, at its sole and arbitrary
discretion. Seon may replace an entire unit with an equivalent model, at its sole and arbitrary discretion. If a
unit is exchanged, the returned product shall become the property of Seon and the exchange product becomes
the property of the purchaser, and the remainder of the warranty that applied to the original unit purchased
shall apply to the exchanged product. Exchange units may be new units or units that have been repaired to full
factory specifications at Seon’s discretion.
If the product is found to be in good working order or its inability to function properly is not covered by this
warranty, the product will be returned in the same condition as received unless repair is possible and
requested by the customer. Repairs of such nature will incur a charge for parts and labor and will proceed only
by agreement with the customer to accept the charge.
This warranty shall not apply:
(a) to equipment not supplied by Seon;
(b) to equipment, including, any components, which shall have been operated in excess of rated capacity,
subject to negligence, accident, or damage by circumstances beyond Seon’s control, or to improper
installation, operation, maintenance, servicing, alterations or storage, modification without Seon’s
written authorization, misuse, vandalism, fire, floods or acts of nature so as, in Seon’s exclusive and
arbitrary judgment, to affect the same adversely; or
(c) if the serial number for the product has been altered in any way.

(d) if the product has been operated outside of the specified Operating Environment specified in the
Seon Users Manual for such product.
DISCLAIMER
THIS WARRANTY IS EXCLUSIVE AND IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES,
GUARANTEES AND CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE AND WITHOUT
LIMITING THE GENERALITY OF THE FOREGOING, SEON EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ANY
IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY, DURABILITY OR FITNESS FOR PURPOSE AND ANY
WARRANTIES OR MODIFIED WARRANTIES ARISING FROM USAGE OF TRADE OR COURSE OF DEALING.
Any description of the goods or services, whether in writing or made orally by Seon or Seon’s agents,
specifications, samples, models, bulletins, drawings, diagrams, engineering sheets or similar materials
used in connection with customer’s order are for the sole purpose of identifying the goods and/or services
and shall not be construed as an express warranty. Any suggestions by Seon or Seon’s agents regarding
use, applications or suitability of the goods and/or services shall not be construed as an express warranty
unless confirmed to be such in writing by Seon. Purchaser assumes full responsibility for selecting
products to achieve purchaser’s intended purposes, for properly installing and using those products, and for
verifying the results obtained therefrom.
PURCHASER’S EXCLUSIVE REMEDY AND SEON’S ENTIRE LIABILITY ARISING FROM OR IN CONNECTION
WITH PURCHASER’S USE OF THE PRODUCTS AND/OR THIS AGREEMENT SHALL BE REPAIR OR
REPLACEMENT OF DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS, OR REFUND OR CREDIT OF THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE
PRODUCTS AS SET FORTH ABOVE. SEON SHALL NOT BE SUBJECT TO AND DISCLAIMS: (A) ANY OTHER
OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES ARISING OUT OF BREACH OF CONTRACT OR OF WARRANTY, (B) ANY
OBLIGATIONS WHATSOEVER ARISING FROM TORT CLAIMS (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE, AND STRICT
LIABILITY) OR ARISING UNDER OTHER THEORIES OF LAW WITH RESPECT TO GOODS SOLD OR
SERVICES RENDERED BY SEON, OR ANY UNDERTAKINGS, ACTS OR OMISSIONS RELATING THERETO, AND
(C) ALL CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL AND CONTINGENT DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, EVEN IF
SEON HAS BEEN SPECIFICALLY ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Seon specifically disclaims any liability for property or
personal injury damages, penalties, special or punitive damages, damages for lost profits or revenues, loss
of use of goods or any associated equipment, cost of capital, cost of substitute goods, facilities or services,
down-time, shut-down or slow-down costs, or for any other types of economic loss, and for claims of
customer’s customers or any third party for any such damages. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitation
or exclusion of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation or exclusion may not apply to
purchaser. In no event shall Seon’s total liability for any damages to purchaser or any other person in
connection with the products or this agreement exceed the lower of the suggested list price or the actual
price paid for the products, regardless of whether such liability arises from contract, tort, warranty or any
other form of claim.
If any provision of this agreement is found to be void, invalid, or unenforceable, that finding shall not
affect the remaining provisions, all of which shall be enforced to the full extent permitted by law. If any
remedy hereunder is determined to have failed of its essential purpose, the limitations of liability and
exclusion of damages set forth above shall remain in full force and effect. This agreement may be modified
only in writing signed by a duly authorized representative of Seon.
