1.1 General Description
This camera, a digital scouting camera with black IR and MMS
function, is a digital infrared surveillance camera, triggered by any
movement of humans or animals monitored by a high sensitive Passive
Infrared (PIR) motion sensor, and then automatically captures high
quality pictures (up to 8M pixels) or records video clips (VGA)
according to default settings or preset customer settings. It will then
send the pictures instantly to your mobile device or e mail via
GSM/GPRS network. You’ll be alerted just when the camera is
triggered or per custom settings.
It takes color pictures or videos under sufficient daylight. While at
night, the built-in 940nm IR LED’s take clear pictures or videos
(monochrome). It’s invisible to game.And this model has a new design
of PIR and this new PIR is patented. The new patented PIR’s detection
range can reach to 22M.
There is a 1.5” color LCD display screen on the camera and a sound
recorder embedded in the camera. A laser pointer is used to help target
the photo area of the camera. It supports MMS/SMS/E-mail via GSM
Network.
It is resistant against water and snow. The camera can also be used
as a portable digital camera.
1.2 Camera Body Interfaces
The camera has the following I/O interfaces: USB connector,
SD-card slot, TV output and external DC power connector.

3 Quick Introductions
3 Quick Start Guide
3.1 Power Supply
To supply power for the camera, four or eight size AA batteries are
needed.
Open the bottom cover. Confirm that the power switch is in the OFF
position and pull out the battery pack by pulling the silver handle. Load
the fully charged batteries into the pack according the polarities signs
shown below. Push the battery pack back into to the battery chamber.
The following batteries with 1.5V output can be used:
1. High-density
and
high-performance
alkaline
batteries
(Recommended)
2. Rechargeable alkaline batteries
3. Rechargeable NiMH batteries
There are four battery slots. Slot 1 and 2 form one group and is
marked “1”while slot 3 and 4 form the other group and is marked “2”.
Only one “group” of batteries is needed to supply power to the camera,
but both can be used and is recommended.
When in a low-battery state, the camera will be automatically shut
down after two indication sounds. Please change the batteries at this
time. If you have set the MMS function, it will send you a MMS/SMS or
Email to indicate the low battery situation.

3 Quick Introductions
Insert the SD-card and the SIM-card
Open the bottom cover. Insert an SD-card into the card slot with
unmarked side upwards. Please note that the SD-card is on the “write”
(not locked) position otherwise the camera will not function correctly.
When using MMS/SMS/E-mail functions, be sure to insert a SIM-card
into the SIM-card slot with angle in the upper left.
3.3
Power on and Enter into the ON Mode
Before switching on, please pay attention to the following:
1. Avoid temperature and motion disturbances in front of the
camera such as a big leaf, curtain, air-conditioner, air outlet of the
chimney and other heat sources to prevent from false triggering.
2. The height from the ground for placing the camera should vary
with the object size appropriately. In general, three to six feet is
preferred.
Slide the power switch to the ON position to power on the camera
and enter into the ON mode. Before entering into the ON mode, you
can adjust the camera towards the target monitoring area by laser
pointer. See section 4.3. for related information.
After switching on the camera, the motion indication LED (red) light
will blink for about 10s. The 10s is a buffering time before automatically
capturing photos or videos, e.g. for closing and locking the bottom
cover, fixing the camera on a tree and walking away.
In ON mode, it is unnecessary to use the remote control. The
camera will take pictures or videos automatically according to the
Page 8

4 Advanced Operations
4 Advanced Operations
From the basic operations of the camera previewed in the previous
chapter, we know that the camera has three basic
operation modes:
1.
OFF mode: Power switch is in the OFF position.
2.
ON mode: Power switch is in the ON position.
3.
TEST mode: Power switch is in the TEST position.
In the above three modes, the OFF mode is the specified safe mode
when replacing the SD-card or batteries and transporting the camera.
This chapter explains the advanced operations for customizing the
camera settings. The settings can only be customized in TEST mode
and the wireless remote is needed.
4.1 Settings Menu
To view the camera settings menu, press MENU in the TEST mode
(called settings menu in this chapter). The settings menu will be shown
on the LCD on camera or the external TV monitor. There are seventeen

record any triggers set off by movement. This
function can be set to Off and will function to the
interval settings.
The camera sends MMS message through GPRS
network, so before using this function, you need to
open GPRS service from your service provider. It
supports four bands :850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz
MMS Set
and 1900MHz.
You should set the right MMS setting parameters.
The settings of MMS: URL, APN, IP and Port.
Please contact the network service provider if you are
not familiar with the settings.
The camera sends image through GPRS network with
SMTP protocol to a Email address. Use this way the
communication cost will be much cheaper in many
countries.
GPRS Set
You should set the right GPRS setting parameters.
The settings of GPRS: sending Email server,
sending email Port, GPRS APN and so on. Please
contact the network service provider if you are not
familiar with the settings.
There are 3 Send Modes: “Manual” works in TEST

mode,“Daily report ”and “Instant” work in ON mode.
1)“Manual”:
Choose “Manual” in Test mode. Please ensure a

4 Advanced Operations
SIM card is inserted properly; Please note, only
photos can be sent in TEST mode .Video information
can’t be sent in TEST mode.
2)“Daily Report”:
Daily Report works only in the ON mode, which
means that the camera will report the summarized
information at the preset time (if the preset time is,
eg.20:00PM) on how many pictures it had taken per
day. So, you will get a summarized text message with
the last picture taken until 20:00PM.
If it is on Camera mode, the camera will send a
MMS at the preset time. The MMS will show you the
latest photo and the total qty of the pictures get
taken. If it is on Video mode, the camera will send a
SMS at the preset time. The SMS will show you how
many video clips the camera has taken within 24
hours.
3) “Instant”:
Instant, just works in ON mode, which means the
camera will send a MMS instantly after it captures a
photo or a video clip. You can choose the number of
how many pictures you want it send out per day.
If it is on Camera mode and you chose the Instant
MMS mode, and set the MAX number is 10, the
camera will send 10 MMS within 24 hours .And then
Page 14
HCO ScoutGuard SG580MB

it continues to capture photos and save them on the
SD-card. After 24 hours, the camera will send MMS
again when it captures photos. If it is on Video mode,
the Camera will send only SMS instead of MMS.
4) “OFF”: To disable MMS function.
Choose send the image to your Phone or to Email.
1> Phone[MMS]:Send the image to cell phone via
WAP.
2> Email[MMS]:Send the image to Email address

This parameter defines the sensitivity of the PIR. There are three
parameters: High, Normal, and Low. The default value is “Normal”.
The higher degree indicates that the Camera is more easily to be
triggered by motion, taking more pictures or recording more videos. It
is recommended to use high sensitivity degree in room or environment
with little interference, and to use lower sensitivity for outdoor or
environment with lots of interference like hot wind, smoke, near
window etc. Furthermore, the sensitivity of the PIR is strongly related
to the temperature. Higher temperature leads to lower sensitivity.
Therefore it is suggested to set a higher sensitivity for high temperature
environment. It is recommended to use the “Low” setting for
temperatures below 35 degrees Fahrenheit and the “High” setting for
temperatures exceeding 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
The following shows how to set PIR sensitivity as Low provided that
the previous option is Normal.

Appendix I: PIR Detection Zone
The figure4 shows the detection range in different detection angle.
When the detection angle is 35°, the detection range is 50ft. When the
detection angle is 52°, the detection range is 30ft.

The PIR detection angle (α) is just barely larger than the field of
view angle (β). The advantage of this design is to avoid empty pictures
and get available pictures.
