Important Safeguards
In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacturing 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.
1.1 General Precautions
1. All warnings and instructions in this manual should be followed.
2. Remove the plug from the outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid aerosol detergents.
Use a water-dampened cloth for cleaning.
3. Do not use this product in humid or wet places.
4. Keep enough space around the product for ventilation. Slots and openings in the storage cabinet should not be blocked.
5. 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.
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.
1.2 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.

Important Safeguards
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 product be connected to a
surge protector. Doing so will protect the product 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.
10. Ventilation - Slots and openings in the case are provided for ventilation to ensure reliable operation of the product and to protect it from overheating. These openings must
not be blocked or covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This product should never be placed
near or over a radiator or heat register. This product should not be placed in a built-in
installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided and the
product manufacturer’s instructions have been followed.
11. Attachments - Do not use attachments unless recommended by the product manufacturer as they may cause a hazard.
12. Water and Moisture - Do not use this 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.
13. Heat - The product should be situated away from heat sources such as radiators, heat
registers, stoves, or other products (including amplifiers) that produce heat.

The product may fall, causing serious damage to the product. Use this product only
with a cart, stand, tripod, bracket, or table recommended by the manufacturer or sold
with the product. Any mounting of the product should follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use a mounting accessory recommended by the manufacturer.
15. Camera Extension Cables – Check the rating of your extension cable(s) to verify
compliance with your local authority regulations prior to installation.
16. Mounting - The cameras provided with this system should be mounted only as instructed in this guide or the instructions that came with your cameras, using the provided mounting brackets.
