Q: Why can't I see an image from the camera in Skype?
A: Are you trying to access the camera on your local network (first time setup) or from a remote
location? Please see both local and remote options below:

monitor. If you cannot see an image from the camera, you need to pair it to the handheld
monitor (see 'How do I pair cameras?').
Insert the Product CD in your Windows PC and install the drivers. Make sure Skype is not
running when you install the drivers. Once the driver is installed, connect the handheld
monitor to the PC using the included USB cable. The handheld monitor should be powered
on. You will see the screen on the handheld monitor go black. Launch Skype and sign in.
Upon login, click the See my video button to confirm that Skype detects the camera. Click the
Close button to exit.

Q: How do I copy video to my computer?
A: Remove the microSD card by using your finger-nail or other thin object to release the card.
Insert the microSD card into the included SD card adapter and slide the notch to LOCK. Insert the
SD card into your computer's SD card reader. If your computer does not have a built-in SD card
slot, you will have to purchase a separate SD card reader. Your computer (PC or Mac) should load
the card like a standard drive. Copy or move the files from the SD card to a location on your hard
Q: Why is my picture at night time not as clear 
via Skype compared to my handheld monitor?
A: Video is transmitted at a resolution
of QVGA (320x240). When viewing on
your computer, typically the viewing
screen is larger than the handheld
monitor, resulting in a stretched
image to fit the screen-size. This is
even more evident in night vision
mode. In Skype, we recommended to
use "pop up mode" (image 1) for
better clarity compared to "zoom out
mode" (image 2).

Q: Why is the temperature sensor giving
me an inaccurate reading?
A: The heat from the camera might be causing the
temperature to appear higher. If the temperature shown
on the handheld monitor differs from the actual room
temperature, gently angle the sensor away from the body
of the camera.
