and invalidation of the warranty.
Planning the installation
Observe the following points:
Outdoor station:
! Protect the outdoor station as much as possible against direct rainfall.
! Mount the outdoor station at such a height that visitors can
comfortably reach the doorbell button and that the face of the person
ringing the bell is in the field of view of the camera. Pay attention to
the height of children in doing so. The vertical detection angle of the
camera is approx. 48°.
! The outdoor station is usually installed at the side of the entrance
door. Ensure that the face of the visitor standing in front of the door
can be seen on the screen. The horizontal detection angle of the
camera is approx. 64°. If necessary, use the enclosed wedge shaped
bracket to align the outdoor station.
! Position the outdoor station so that no direct light falls on the lens
opening. Avoid strong backlighting behind the visitor: in this case, the
person appears darker on the image. Check the camera image before
mounting. Put the unit into operation and hold the outdoor station in
the desired place for this. If necessary, change the position until you
have found the optimum image. Remember that the position of the
sun changes.
! Suitable cable routing must be available, also for the optional electric
door opener.
