2. Before installing the camera in its final location, power the camera and connect it to the network. If your router supports PoE, connect the
camera to a PoE port via a Cat-5 network cable. Otherwise, connect the camera to an open port on the router and use a DC 12-48V power
supply to power the camera. Note: Ethernet cable runs can be no longer than 100 meters.
3. If using the PoE injector, connect the router or switch to “Data In” on the injector and connect the injector’s “Data & Power Out” port to the
camera using Cat-5 network cables. Connect the injector to a power outlet.

Step Three Install Camera
To optimize event detection, place your CheckVideo HD Camera
as follows:
HEIGHT: Each camera must be installed 8 to 20 feet off the
DISTANCE: If you are mainly detecting people, the distance
between the camera and the people you wish to detect
should be 10 to 100 feet. If you are primarily concerned with
detecting vehicles, the range is 30 to 160 feet.
Fig. 2 - MORE EFFECTIVE: Cameras
are at a 15 to 45 degree downward
tilt and are mounted 8 to 20 feet high
The CheckVideo Camera Placement Guide includes a summary
checklist on improving your camera placement.
Once you’ve determined where to place the Camera, run Cat-5
network cable from the router to the desired location. The
Camera can be placed on a ceiling or wall.
To adjust the camera to the proper angle, remove the cover using
the included hex wrench. This will expose the ball and lens. The
ball rotates in 3 directions. Gripping the ball, adjust the angle for
your location, seeking to maintain a 15 to 45 degree downward
tilt. Be careful not to touch the lens as rotating it will change the
focus and may result in fingerprints on your video images.
Using the mounting screws, attach the camera to the wall or
ceiling and reattach the cover using the previously removed hex
screws. Remember to pay attention to the microSD card, being
careful to avoid pressing on it with the camera's cover.

directly overhead (90 degrees) or parallel
to (0 degrees) the target

Configure Device.
2. Select Device: Select the device and video resolutions
for event clips and DVR. CheckVideo will default both
resolutions to 720p. You may wish to start with these
