Important Safeguards
In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacture process of
your video product, safety is a major factor in the design of every instrument. However, safety
is your responsibility too. This sheet lists important information that will help to ensure your
enjoyment and proper use of the video product and accessory equipment. Please read them
carefully before operating and using your video product.
Installation
1. Read and Follow Instructions - All the safety
and operating instructions should be read before the
video product is operated. Follow all operating
instructions.
2. Retain Instructions - The safety and operating
instructions should be retained for future reference.
3.
Heed Warnings - Comply with all warnings on
the video product and in the operating instructions.
4. Polarization - Do not defeat the safety purpose of
the polarized or grounding-type
plug.
A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other.
A grounding type plug has two blades
and a third grounding prong.
The wide blade or the third prong are
provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit into
your outlet, consult an electrician for replacement
of the obsolete outlet.
5. Power Sources - This video product should be
operated only from the type of power source
indicated on the marking label. If you are not sure of
the type of power supply to your location, consult
your video dealer or local power company. For video
products intended to operate from battery power, or
other sources, refer to the operating instructions.
6. Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets of
extension cords as this can result in the risk of fire
or electric shock. Overloaded AC outlets, extension
cords, frayed power cords, damaged or cracked wire
insulation, and broken plugs are dangerous. They
may result in a shock or fire hazard. Periodically
examine the cord, and if its appearance indicates
damage or deteriorated insulation, have it replaced
by your service technician.
7. Power-Cord Protection - Power supply cords
should be routed so that they are not likely to be
walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against
them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs,
convenience receptacles, and the point where they
exit from the video product.
8.
Ventilation - Slots and openings in the case are
provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation
of the video product and to protect it from
overheating. These openings must not be blocked or
covered. The openings should never be blocked by
placing the video equipment on a bed, sofa, rug, or
other similar surface. This video product should
never be placed near or over a radiator or heat
register. This video product should not be placed in
a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack
unless proper ventilation is provided or the video
product manufacturer’s instructions have been
followed.
9. Attachments - Do not use attachments unless
recommended by the video product manufacturer as
they may cause a hazard.
10. Camera Extension Cables – Check the rating
of your extension cable(s) to verify compliance with
your local authority regulations prior to installation.
11. Water and Moisture - Do not use this video
product near water. For example, near a bath tub,
wash bowl, kitchen sink or laundry tub, in a wet
basement, near a swimming pool and the like.
Caution: Maintain electrical safety. Power line
operated equipment or accessories connected to
this unit should bear the UL listing mark of CSA
certification mark on the accessory itself and should
not be modified so as to defeat the safety features.
This will help avoid any potential hazard from
electrical shock or fire. If in doubt, contact qualified
service personnel.
12. Accessories - Do not place this
video equipment on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, or table. The
video equipment may fall, causing
serious damage to the video
product. Use this video product
only with a cart, stand, tripod,
bracket, or table recommended by
the manufacturer or sold with the video product. Any
mounting of the product should follow the
manufacturer’s instructions and use a mounting
accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
i
Service
1.
Servicing - Do not attempt to service this video
equipment yourself as opening or removing covers
may expose you to dangerous voltage or other
hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service
personnel.
2. Conditions Requiring Service - Unplug this
video product from the wall outlet and refer servicing
to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions.
A. When the power supply cord or plug is
damaged.
B. If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen

normal operation.
E. If the video product has been dropped or the
cabinet has been damaged.
F. When the video product exhibits a distinct
change in performance. This indicates a need for
service.
15. Replacement Parts - When replacement parts
are required, have the service technician verify that
the replacements used have the same safety
characteristics as the original parts. Use of
replacements specified by the video product
manufacturer can prevent fire, electric shock or
other hazards.
16. Safety Check - Upon completion of any service or
repairs to this video product, ask the service
technician to perform safety checks recommended
by the manufacturer to determine that the video
product is in safe operating condition.

Use
1. Cleaning - Unplug the video product from the wall
outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or

Installing The Camera
4. Installing The Camera
• Before you install the camera, carefully plan where and how it will be
positioned and where you will route the cable that connects the camera
to the power adapter. 
• Before starting permanent installation, verify the camera’s
performance by observing the image on a monitor when camera is
positioned in the same location / position where it will be permanently
installed.
4.1 Installation Warnings
• Aim the cameras to best optimize the viewing area: select a location for the camera that
provides a clear view of the area you want to monitor, that is free from dust, and that is not
in line-of-sight to a strong light source or direct sunlight.
• Avoid installing the camera where there are thick walls or obstructions between the camera
and the receiver.
• Avoid installing in a location which requires the wireless signal to pass through cement,
concrete, and metal structures. This will reduce the range of transmission. For details, see
“Appendix C: Facts About Digital Wireless Cameras” on page 10.

Appendix B: About Digital Wireless Technology
8. Appendix B: About Digital Wireless
Technology
The Digital Wireless signal transmission type used by the Lorex LW2275 Series is also
known as FHSS—Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum. This type of signal results in a
private, interference-free signal.
The 2.4GHz (2.400-2.480GHz) band is divided into sections or paths of 2MHz per section,
and each second, the transmission signal hops hundreds of times in a specified sequence
within this frequency range. The overall bandwidth required for frequency hopping is much
wider than 2MHz; however, because transmission occurs only on a small section of this
bandwidth at any given time, the signal being transmitted does not suffer from greatly
reduced signal degradation and also avoids paths blocked by other devices that act as
sources of competing signals. The strength of the signal being transmitted is set to be from
13.5-16dBm, which is much higher than the analog transmission signal allowed by
authorities around the globe.
When an image is captured by the camera, it is instantly converted from an analog to a
digital signal and is packaged into small packets. With each successful transmission via
the 2 MHz paths discussed above, the packets of information containing images are
delivered to the receiver and decoded into analog information. The information can then be
displayed on devices that are connected to the wireless receiver (RX).
A device pairing process is required to synchronize the transmitter (TX, Camera) and the
receiver (RX). This allows the transmitter and receiver to be on the same frequency and use
the same algorithm for frequency hopping. This ensures that only the paired transmitter
and receiver can maintain communication signal by hopping to the same frequency paths
at the exact same time. As a result, the chance that other devices within the same
frequency range are on the same frequency, at the same time and in the same order is
vastly reduced. Note that the pairing process is already done at the factory for products
that ship within the same packaging.

Appendix C: Facts About Digital Wireless Cameras
9. Appendix C: Facts About Digital Wireless
Cameras
9.1 Wired vs. Wireless Cameras
A wired camera has a video cable that transmits the video signal from the camera to a
recording or viewing device.
A wireless camera does not use a video cable. Instead, it wirelessly transmits the video
signal to a wireless receiver that is connected to your recording or viewing device. Although
the typical digital wireless camera is priced slightly higher than a wired camera, wireless
cameras can provide cost savings compared to standard wired setups. For example,
wireless cameras do not require cabling to be run between the camera and the viewing /
recording device, which reduces installation time and cost.
9.2 Does a wireless camera require power?
Yes. Wireless cameras require two power sources: one connected to the camera, and the
other to the receiver.
9.3 How far can a wireless camera transmit a video signal?
In an open field (with line of sight), a typical wireless camera has a range between 250 to
450 feet. In a closed environment—such as an interior of a house—the wireless camera
range is between 100 to 150 feet. The signal range varies depending on the type of building
materials and/or objects the wireless signal must pass through.
Cubical walls, drywall, glass, and windows generally do not degrade wireless signal
strength. Brick, concrete floors, and walls degrade signal strength1. Trees that are in the
line of sight of the wireless camera and receiver may impact signal strength.
The signal range also depends on whether there are competing signals using the same
frequency as the camera. For example, signals from cordless phones or routers may affect
signal strength.

Appendix C: Facts About Digital Wireless Cameras
Signal Reduction Through Materials
Signal strength decreases as it passes through different types of material. Try to position
your wireless camera and receiver in a location where the signal does not pass through
metal or concrete blocks, which can significantly reduce signal strength (as shown in the
table below).
Material
Signal Reduction (%)
Plaster & Wood
10 - 30%
Brick
30 - 50%
Concrete Cinder Blocks
50 - 70%
Metal & Metal Cladding
70 - 90%
NOTE: Signals that must pass through wet or moist materials
(i.e. shrubs and trees) may be significantly reduced.
The stronger the signal strength, the higher the video frame rate. The lower the signal
strength, the lower the video frame rate.
Full signal strength
(high frame rate)
Low signal strength
(low frame rate)
9.4 Are digital wireless camera signals secure?
Yes. Lorex digital wireless products feature a wireless transmission method called FHSS—
Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum.
This type of signal is highly resistant to eavesdropping as it generates a channel hopping
sequence using an algorithm generated by the receiver, which only the camera can follow
through the "pairing" function. FHSS makes digital wireless signals secure, private, and
interference free.
9.5 How many frames per second should I expect from a digital
wireless camera?
Current Lorex digital wireless cameras offer 10 - 30 FPS (Frames Per Second)
performance. Actual frame rate depends mainly on signal strength and resolution (see the
chart above). Most digital wireless cameras support one or both of the following
resolutions: QVGA and VGA.
QVGA produces video at up to 25-30 FPS at 320x240 resolution.
VGA produces video at up to 10-12 FPS at 640x480 resolution.
9.6 How many wireless cameras can I install?
It is recommended to install a maximum of 4 (four) wireless cameras per system.

If you have problems with your system, there is often a quick and simple solution. Please
try the following:
12
Problem
Solution
There is no picture from the
camera
• Make sure that the camera is plugged into a power outlet
and that the power adapter is plugged in properly.
• Move the camera closer to the receiver.
There is no audio from the
camera or there are problems with the audio
• Make sure that the white audio connector on the receiver is
connected to the correct audio input on your TV/DVR/VCR.
• Make sure that your DVR/VCR is connected to speakers.
• Make sure that the volume is turned on.
• Make sure that there is sound within range of the camera
microphone.
• If the unit emits a loud screeching noise (feedback), move
the camera or receiver farther apart.
The picture is dropping
• Move the camera closer to the receiver.
• Try repositioning the camera, receiver, or both to improve
the reception.
The picture is or has become
choppy
• The picture may become choppy when experiencing a lower
frame rate (e.g. 6 frames per second vs. a higher 12 frames
per second).
• Try moving the camera closer to the receiver.
• Remove obstructions between the receiver and camera.
• Try switching to QVGA mode. Resolution will be reduced, but
video frame rate will increase.
The picture appears fuzzy
• When viewing on a large-screen TV or monitor (especially
high-definition televisions), the picture might seem fuzzy as
the camera is limited to VGA resolution (640x480 pixels),
while the TV or monitor supports a much higher resolution.
• For best performance, use with TV/monitor PIP (Picture in
Picture) function. Check your TV/monitor product manual to
see if this feature is available on your TV/monitor.
The picture is white
• "Washout" or "white wash" can occur when a strong light
source is pointed at the camera lens. The camera lens is not
harmed during a white wash.
• Do not point your camera towards a bright light source.
The picture is pixelated
• You may be in QVGA mode. Try switching to VGA mode by
pressing the QVGA button on the receiver.
Appendix E: Frequently Asked Questions
11. Appendix E: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the maximum distance I can have between the camera and the
receiver?
A: Typically 450 feet (137m) with a clear line of sight in open space, or approximately 150
feet (46m) in a house. Walls, studs, furniture will interfere with the range of wireless
transmission.
Q: Why does my "wireless camera" have a power cable?
A: The term "wireless" refers to the lack of a video cable between the camera and the
receiver. The camera still requires a power source.
Q: What does 'line-of-sight' mean?
A: 'Line-of-sight' means that there are no obstructions between the camera and receiver.
Obstructions include walls, buildings, trees, and certain electronic devices. Materials
containing moisture (for example, wet leaves) may also act as an obstruction.
Q: What is pairing?
A: Pairing is an electronic handshake between digital wireless devices. Pairing allows the
devices to communicate exclusively with each other.
Q: Can digital wireless cameras be paired to more than one receiver?
A: No. Digital wireless cameras can only be paired to one receiver. This is to prevent
interception by 3rd parties, and prevents any other device from picking up the signal—this
also means that you cannot pair one camera to multiple receivers.
Q: How can I extend the wireless range?
A: For details, see “Appendix F: Extending Wireless Signal Range” on page 14.

DISCLAIMER: Certain accessories are not available in all markets.
There are several ways to boost your wireless signal as well as options to help you extend
the range of the wireless signal.
Clear Line-of-Sight
The digital wireless signal is virtually interference free. However, you should always
ensure there is a clear line-of-sight between the camera and the receiver.
Clear line of sight
Receiver
Obstacles
There should be little to no obstacles obstructing the line-of-sight between the camera and
the receiver. Solid objects, such as concrete and metal, may limit the range of the wireless
signal.
Extending Your Wireless Signal
Even with a clear line-of-sight between your camera(s) and your receiver, you may
experience a lower video frame rate simply due to the distance between your wireless
devices.
Accessory antennas are available that can help extend the range of your wireless signal.
