INSTALLATION
THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE INSTALLATION
SVAT ELECTRONICS
now you can see
• The camera should be installed between 8 to 13ft above the area to be monitored
• Ensure that the camera is installed NO MORE then 100 ft away from the receiver’s position to maintain a strong
signal between the camera and receiver
• Before mounting the camera, ensure there are no obstructions in the camera’s view
• Place camera in the most strategic place where it can provide detailed video of your home or business. Having
the camera in the open for people to see can help deter criminals
• To cover large, dark areas such as backyards, garages, and driveways, place camera in a strategic location, such
as on the roof or deck. This way more area is covered by the camera
• Ensure that the camera is positioned to avoid glare. Be sure to position camera away from direct sunlight or
indoor lighting
• For best results, light in front of the camera should be about the same brightness as the light around the area or
object being monitored
• Decide whether the camera will be wall-mounted, or mounted on a desk/table top. We recommend that the
mount is secured using the included screws and hardware for all installations
AVOIDING INTERFERENCE
The GX301 utilizes clear signal technology,
meaning that it is designed to avoid the
frequencies of common wireless devices.
By doing so, the system does not receive
interference from any standardized 2.4GHz or
5.8 GHz wireless devices within your home or
business.
The signal also passes easily through interior
walls. However, buildings with metal frames
or placing the camera near large metal objects
may cause signal interference. If reception
is poor, moving the camera and/or receiver
closer to one another may fix this problem.
Interference is also possible if another device
within the building (such as a cordless phone)
is operating on the same frequency.

INSTALLATION
MOUNTING THE CAMERA
1. Decide if the camera will be wall-mounted or sitting on
a desk/tabletop. The camera can be adjusted for many
mounting scenarios by rotating it to the required position.
• Keep in mind that the camera is microphone
equipped. If you would like audio recorded, make sure
the camera is within a close enough range of the area
being monitored to record any sounds (within 6 ft)
• Be sure to mount the camera no further than 100ft
away from your receiver
• Be sure to mount the camera no further than 8ft away
from a power source
2. Screw the mounting bracket into the camera’s mounting
hole, turning it clockwise.
3. Ensure that the camera is strongly secured into the wall.
4. Adjust camera to the desired viewing angle.
5. For additional help with mounting the camera, please see
the drilling template located at the back of the manual.
6. Once you have mounted the camera and placed it at the
desired viewing angle, plug the camera’s power adapter
(marked for camera) into the cord on the camera and then
plug the adapter into a power source. (A surge protected
power source is recommended.)
7. If you purchased a kit with additional cameras, repeat the
above steps for all additional cameras.
