NOTE: Picture / Image Capacity Chart shows the approximate number of images or video clips that can be stored based on the resolution setting and the size of memory card. These figures may vary depending on the amount of detail in the image.
Memory Options Up to 4GB SD card
Your SLDCRF wireless lighting camera is equipped with 32MB built in SDRAM memory. Please note that the built in memory is only for storage buffer and data processing buffer only, the captured image or video cannot store on internal memory, please install the memory card to memory card slot of receiver box. The memory card slot capable of accepting up to 4GB SD card (sold separately). With no memory card inserted into the
slot, the display will show Err to indicate non memory card installed. Also, it is not recommended that a card is inserted or removed during operation as this can cause malfunction.
C. Mounting the camera
Mount the SLDCRF to a solid surface more than ½ or 12.7mm thick in a secure location overseeing the area to monitor. We suggest you mount the camera between 2 meters off the ground with the camera pointing at a downward angle 15 degrees. Be sure to avoid mounting the camera facing east or west as the rising and setting of the sun may produce false triggers and overexposed images.
Ensure the front of your
SLDCRF is clear of any branches and other debris so your camera view or PIR sensor are not obscured.
1. Connect the SLDCRF to AC power.
Please make sure your SLDCRF is rated for your voltage before connection. Incorrect voltage will damage the camera.
BLUE WIRE FOR NEUTRAL
YELLOW / GREEN WIRE FOR EARTH
BROWN WIRE FOR LIVE
Observe correct wiring as failure to do so will damage unit and void warranty
We recommend using a supply that you can switch off if required. Once wired correctly, turn on the mains supply.
When connected, if the environmental brightness is not enough, the SLDCRF lamp will turn on for approximately
60 seconds. This 60 seconds to inform user leave the capturing area, then it is ready for operation and will begin recording images each time the motion sensor is triggered.
