Important Safeguards
In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacture process of
your 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 product and accessory equipment. Please read them carefully before
operating and using your product.
General Precautions
1. All warnings and instructions in this manual should be followed.
2. Do not use receivers or video monitors in humid or wet places.
3. Keep enough space around the product for ventilation. Slots and openings in the storage
cabinet should not be blocked.
4. It is highly recommended to connect the product to a surge protector to protect from damage
caused by electrical surges. It is also recommended to connect the product to an
uninterruptible power supply (UPS), which has an internal battery that will keep the product
running in the event of a power outage.
5. Remove the plug from the outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid aerosol detergents. Use a
water dampened cloth for cleaning.
Installation
1. Read and Follow Instructions - All the safety and
operating instructions should be read before the 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
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 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 supplied
to your location, consult your video dealer or local power
company. For products intended to operate from battery
power, or other sources, refer to the operating
instructions.
6. Overloading - Do not overload wall outlets or 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. Pay
particular attention to cords at plugs, convenience
receptacles, and the point where they exit from the
product.
8. Surge Protectors - It is highly recommended that the
video equipment be connected to a surge protector.
Doing so will protect the equipment from damage
caused by power surges. Surge protectors should bear
the UL listing mark or CSA certification mark.
9. Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS) - Because
this product is designed for continuous, 24/7 operation,
it is recommended that you connect the product to an
uninterruptible power supply. An uninterruptible
power supply has an internal battery that will keep the
product running in the event of a power outage.
Uninterruptible power supplies should bear the UL
listing mark or CSA certification mark.
Caution: Maintain electrical safety. Power line
operated equipment or accessories connected to this
product should bear the UL listing mark or 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.

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 camera(s) 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.
• Select a location for the camera that has an ambient temperature between 14°F~122°F
(-10°C~50°C)

Appendix B: About Digital Wireless Technology
8. Appendix B: About Digital Wireless
Technology
The Digital Wireless signal transmission type used by Lorex digital wireless cameras is
also known as FHSS—Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum.
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 2MHz 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
500 feet. In a closed environment—such as an interior of a house—the wireless camera
range is between 100 to 165 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
(e.g. 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).
For details on supported resolutions and frame rates for this model, see “Appendix A:
System Specifications” on page 8.
9.6 How many wireless cameras can I install?
It is recommended to install a maximum of 4 (four) wireless cameras per system. It is also
recommended to leave as much space as possible between receivers to minimize potential
signal strength degradation.

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 500 feet (152m) with a clear line of sight in open space, or approximately 165
feet (50m) in a house. Walls, studs, and 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.

Appendix F: Extending Wireless Signal Range
12. Appendix F: Extending Wireless Signal Range
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(s), 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.

Appendix F: Extending Wireless Signal Range
2.4 GHZ Directional Wireless Panel Antenna
Use the 2.4GHz Directional Wireless Panel Antenna 
(model #: ACCANTD9) to focus a wireless signal onto one
specific camera in order to increase the range of
transmission (clear line-of-sight between the camera and
the antenna is required). A 20ft extension cable is included
to help to properly position the antenna.
Directional Wireless Panel Antenna
Scenario 1: Single Camera / Receiver Installation
If you are using only one wireless camera and receiver in your installation, you may attach
a directional antenna to either the camera, receiver, or both. It is recommended to attach
the antenna to the receiver and place it in a location that has clear line-of-sight to the
camera. During the installation, check the reception on your TV, DVR, or observation
system.
Scenario 2: Multiple Camera / Receiver Installation
If you are using multiple wireless cameras and receivers in your installation, attach
directional antennas to the camera(s) and receiver(s) that are farthest away from each
other. Follow these guidelines to increase the signal strength between your cameras and
receivers:
• Point directional antennas towards the receiver for each camera.
• Keep as much space as possible between each receiver.
• Keep as much space as possible between directional antennas if using more than one.
• Minimize the amount of obstructions (e.g. walls or trees) between the antennas and receivers.
• During the installation, check the reception of each camera on your TV, DVR, or observation
system.
