SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
This information is provided to ensure your safety and to prevent
physical or financial loss. Please read this document carefully before
installing and operating the camera.
1. Handle with care.
Use caution when handling to avoid damage to sensitive internal
components.
2. Do not install camera under extreme temperatures.
This camera only operates under temperature conditions between
14˚F ~ 140˚F.
3. Do not mount the camera directly facing bright light sources.
Exposing the camera to strong light over long periods of time will
damage the camera’s sensor.
4. Do not supply voltage other than 12~30V DC or 24V AC.
This camera regulates power within this range. Higher voltages will
damage the camera’s electronic components.
5. Do not install camera in environments with extreme humidity.
Installing camera in environments with extreme humidity may cause
moisture to condense on the surface of the lens or dome cover,
which can affect picture quality.

FEATURES
• 1/3” Sony Super-HAD II CCD
The Sony Super HAD II CCD is ideal for low lux illumination, resulting in
a clear and crisp image.
• Varifocal Auto-Iris Lens
This camera features a varifocal lens with a focal length of 3.7-12
mm. The auto-iris function intuitively manages the amount of light
passing through the lens for consistent image brightness.
• DWDR (Digital Wide Dynamic Range)
DWDR is ideal for high contrast environments, improving the contrast
between very dark and very bright areas in a scene and producing
a more balanced image.
• 2D Digital Noise Reduction
Digital noise reduction produces clear images in low light conditions.
Not only does it help to reduce image noise, but it also minimizes
objects from becoming blurred when in motion, producing extremely
clear picture quality even under low-light conditions.
• RS-485 Connection and OSD
This camera features an OSD (on-screen display) for initial setup and
settings adjustment. Remote control is possible using a compatible
DVR or PTZ controller connected to the camera's RS485 wire leads.
• 3-Axis Gimbal
A 3-axis gimbal provides a wide range of camera positioning angles
through mechanical adjustment.
• Video Test Port
Adjust angle, zoom, and focus at the camera for fast and easy
installation.

INSTALLATION
1.Prepare Camera for Mounting
Prior to mounting to the Camera, we recommend that the position
and angles be preset in order to speed installation. These settings
can be fine-tuned once the Camera is mounted.
Important Note: To avoid damaging the dome surface during installation, keep the
dome surface away from walls and other objects. Do not remove the protective
coating from the dome until after the camera is mounted and the dome installed.
Microfiber or similar cloths can be abrasive, only use a dry eyeglasses cloth when
cleaning he lens to avoid damage that can blur the cameras image.
A. Open the camera by using
the provided 3mm Allen key to
remove the three screws on the
dome cover.
B. Pre-adjust the camera’s 3-axis
angle so the lens points in the
desired direction. The lens angle
should not exceed 50˚ off the
center axis.
1.Connect The Camera to the System
Recommended Cabling
Video RG59 or RG6
Power 18/2 or Cat5e/6
A. Connect the BNC video output to the
video in of a DVR or monitor.
12V DC
BNC
RS485 Leads
Video Out
Power In
B. Connect the DC Power In to a power
supply using the included WPS-ACC-PWR DC power adapter. The power
supply can be located at the head end of system using a WPS-PS
multiple output power supply and prewiring a power wire.
Important Note! Be sure to use the correct power supply and power wire for the length
of run to the camera to ensure reliable operation. Too small a power supply or wire will
cause too much voltage drop, which will cause the camera to operate incorrectly or not
power up at all.
C. The RS485 leads to a WPS-CCTV-TESTER, DVR, or PTZ controller to
view, and control the OSD menu.

2.Mount the Camera
Important Note: To avoid damaging the dome surface during installation, keep the
dome surface away from walls and other objects. Do not remove the protective
coating from the dome until after the camera is mounted and the dome installed.
A. Mounting directly to a wall or eve:
A.1-Use the provided foam gasket
as a template to pre-mark
mounting hole locations.
A.2 - Predrill holes in the marked
locations.
A.3 - Connect the wires from the
wall to the Cameras Pigtail and
insert them into wall.
A.4 - Position the Camera base over
the marked holes from step
3-A-1.
A.5 - Secure the Camera with the provided screws
B. Mounting to a Single gang Junction Box
If using one of the optional Wirepath Mounts (see Optional Accessories).
Follow the instructions in the manual that is supplied with the mount and
then proceed to step 4.

3.Fine-Tuning Camera Adjustments
The camera is supplied with a OSD Joystick / BNC Test Adapter that
allows for viewing the output of the camera on a monitor or the WPSCCTV-TESTER (not included). Use this connection to adjust the camera
directly from the installed location.
A. Connect the OSD Joystick / BNC
Test Adapter Connection to a
monitor or WPS-CCTV-TESTER video
in.
B. Connect a 12V DC Power Supply to
the Secondary Power connection
on the OSD Joystick / BNC Test
Adapter if no other power
connection is active.
Warning!! The Test Port adapter
power connection for this camera
only uses a 12 V DC power supply.
Using a 24 V AC or other voltage
power supply with the Test Port
Adapter will result in damage to the
camera, and possibly the power
supply.

C. Adjust the camera’s 3-axis angle so the lens points in the desired
direction. The lens angle should not exceed 50˚ off the center axis.
D. Loosen, but do not remove the zoom and focus set screws on the lens.
E. Rotate the lens until you achieve the desired setting.
F. Once the Zoom and Focus are adjusted, disconnect the WPS-CCTVTESTER or Monitor, and power supply from the Local Test Connections.

BRIGHTNESS SETUP
Adjust the image brightness by selecting a brightness level from

2.Attach the Dome to the Camera
Note: The camera is equipped with Silica packs that absorb moisture in the
camera to prevent condensation on the lens. DO NOT remove the Silica pack
unless it is being replaced.
A. Replace the dome cover to the
dome base, and make sure the
screws on the dome cover are
tightened securely. Doing so seals
the dome from the elements,
and creates a tight fit around the
rubber lens gasket to prevent the
IR LEDs from reflecting into the lens.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If you have trouble operating the camera, first refer to the following guidelines. If the
problem persists, contact Technical Support at 866.838.5052.
Blurring/ Smudge/ Reflection/ Halo
• This dome camera features a gasket that keeps the IR LEDs from reflecting off the inside of the dome and into the lens.
When improperly aligned or adjusted, during the day you could
see a perfect picture but at night have blurring, smudges or
"halo" reflections. If this is the case it is easily resolved:
• The lens should not be adjusted beyond the recommended
max angle. (See pg 26)
• During adjustment, the “friction” of the rubber lens gasket
against the inside of the dome can leave marks that cause
blurring/reflections. Clean the inside of the dome to remove
these smudges using a dry eyeglasses cloth.
Nothing appears on the display
• Check if the power for camera and monitor is ON.
• Check if the VIDEO cable is connected to the camera
BNC video output jack.
• Check if the VIDEO cable is connected to the monitor
VIDEO input jack.
Image appears dim on the display
• Check the monitor contrast setting.
• Check the monitor and camera brightness setting.
• Check the camera exposure and shutter settings.
• Check the lens. If necessary, clean with a soft, clean cloth.
• Check if the camera is facing towards a bright light. If so, change the camera position.
• If a device exists between the camera and screen, confirm
the signal accepted by the screen is strong enough – 75 Ohm.
• Reset the camera to factory default settings.
Image appears blurry on the display
• Check the focus of the lens.
• Check the lens. If necessary, clean with a soft, clean cloth.

• DAY&NIGHT Mode is set to AUTO. To enable AGC control change DAY&NIGHT to EXT, Color or B/W
RS-485 communication failure
• Check whether the RS-485 polarity is connected correctly to
the RS-485 port.
• Check the Camera ID setting and make sure there is not
more than one device with the same ID on the RS485 network.
• Check the Protocol and Baud Rate for all devices are set
to the same configuration. • Warning: Conflicting settings of the protocol and Baud Rate among devices connected to the RS485 network could result in abnormal operation of the camera. Ensure that the Protocol and Baud Rate for all devices are set to the same configuration.
