Important Safeguards
In addition to the careful attention devoted to quality standards in the manufacture 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.
General Precautions
1. All warnings and instructions in this manual should be followed.
2. Do not use receivers or video monitors in humid or wet places.
3. Keep enough space around the product for ventilation. Slots and openings in the storage
cabinet should not be blocked.
4. 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.
5. Remove the plug from the outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid aerosol detergents. Use a
water dampened cloth for cleaning.
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.
4. Polarization - Do not defeat the safety purpose of the
polarized or grounding-type plug.
A polarized plug has two blades with
one wider than the other.
A grounding type plug has two blades
and a third grounding prong.
The wide blade or the third prong are
provided for your safety.
If the provided plug does not fit into your
outlet, consult an electrician for
replacement of the obsolete outlet.
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
video equipment be connected to a surge protector.
Doing so will protect the equipment 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.
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.

Installing the Camera
4. Installing the Camera
Camera is suitable for outdoor installation.
Installation in a sheltered location is
recommended. For example, install under shelter
protected from the elements, such as beneath roof
eaves. The diagram to the right shows an example of
an ideal location for outdoor placement.
4.1 Installation Warnings
• Aim the camera to optimize the viewing area: select a location that provides a clear view of
the area you want to monitor, that is free from dust, and that is not facing a strong light source
or direct sunlight.
• Avoid installing the camera where there are thick walls or obstructions between the camera
and the receiver.
• Avoid installing in a location which requires the wireless signal to pass through cement,
concrete, and metal structures. This will reduce the range of transmission. For details, see
“Appendix B: Frequently Asked Questions” on page 11.
• Select a location for the camera that has an ambient temperature between 14°F~122°F
(-10°C~50°C)
• Not intended for submersion in water. For outdoor use, installation in a sheltered location is
recommended.

Installing the Camera
4.2 Mounting Positions
You may mount your camera on a wall, ceiling, or counter. See the images below for
recommended configurations of the camera stand and antenna.
Wall
Ceiling
Counter
NOTE: For ceiling installation, position the antenna as high as the ceiling allows. See the
"Ceiling" mounting position in the figure above.
Before mounting the camera permanently, carefully plan where and
how the camera will be positioned and where you will route the cable
that connects the camera to the power adapter. Verify the camera’s
performance by observing the image on a monitor when the camera
is positioned where it will be permanently installed.
4.3 To Install the Camera
1
Use the included mounting screws to mount the camera to the mounting surface:
• Mark the positions of the screw holes
on the mounting surface.

Appendix B: Frequently Asked Questions
9. Appendix B: Frequently Asked Questions
9.1 Wired vs. Wireless Cameras
A wired camera has a video cable that transmits the video signal from the camera to a
recording or viewing device.
A wireless camera does not use a video cable. Instead, it wirelessly transmits the video
signal to a wireless receiver that is connected to your DVR. Wireless cameras do not
require video cabling to be run between the camera and the DVR, which reduces
installation time and cost.
9.2 Does a wireless camera require power?
Yes. Wireless cameras require two power sources: one connected to the camera, and the
other to the receiver. The term "wireless" refers to the lack of a video cable between the
camera and the receiver.
9.3 How far can a wireless camera transmit a video signal?
In an open field (with line of sight), a typical wireless camera has a range between 250 - 500
feet. 'Line-of-sight' means that there are no obstructions between the camera and
receiver. Obstructions include walls, buildings, trees, and certain electronic devices.
Materials containing moisture (for example, leaves) may also act as an obstruction. Cubical
walls, drywall, glass, and windows generally do not degrade wireless signal strength.
In a closed environment—such as the interior of a house—the wireless camera range is
between 100 - 165 feet. The signal range varies depending on the type of building materials
or objects the wireless signal must pass through. The signal range also depends on
whether there are competing signals using the same frequency as the camera. For
example, signals from cordless phones or routers may affect signal strength. Adaptive
Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology featured in the latest Lorex
models greatly reduce signal interference.

Appendix B: Frequently Asked Questions
Signal Reduction Through Materials
Signal strength decreases as it passes through different types of material. The table below
shows how signals become reduced when passing through different materials:
Material
Signal Reduction (%)
Plaster & Wood
10 - 30%
Brick
30 - 50%
Concrete Cinder Blocks
50 - 70%
Metal & Metal Cladding
70 - 90%
NOTE: Signals that must pass through wet or moist materials
(e.g. shrubs and trees) may be significantly reduced.
The stronger the signal strength, the higher the video frame rate. The lower the signal
strength, the lower the video frame rate.
Full signal strength
(high frame rate)
Low signal strength
(low frame rate)
9.4 Are digital wireless camera signals secure?
Yes. Lorex digital wireless products feature a wireless transmission method called
Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS). This type of signal is highly resistant to
eavesdropping as it generates a channel hopping sequence using an algorithm generated
by the receiver, which only the camera can follow through the "pairing" function.
Pairing is an electronic handshake between digital wireless devices. Digital wireless
cameras can only be paired to one receiver. This is to prevent interception by third parties,
and prevents any other device from picking up the signal—this also means that you cannot
pair one camera to multiple receivers.
9.5 How many frames per second should I expect from a digital
wireless camera?
Current Lorex digital wireless cameras offer 10 - 30 FPS (Frames Per Second)
performance. Actual frame rate depends mainly on signal strength (see the chart in
section above).
For details on supported resolutions and frame rates for this model, see “Appendix A:
System Specifications” on page 10.
9.6 How many wireless cameras can I install?
It is recommended to install a maximum of 4 wireless cameras per system (4 receivers and
4 cameras). Minimum space between receivers should be 4 inches / 10cm and minimum
space between cameras should be 6.5ft / 2m to minimize potential signal strength
degradation.

camera(s)
• Make sure the RCA audio output cable is connected to your DVR
or television audio input.
• Make sure audio recording is enabled on your DVR. See your DVR
manual for further instruction.
• Make sure to remove the protective film from the camera lens. The
microphone is located on the front of the camera and will not work
properly if the protective film is left on.
The picture is dropping
• Move the camera closer to the receiver.
• Try repositioning the camera, receiver, or both to improve the
reception.
The picture is or has become
choppy
• The picture may become choppy when experiencing a lower frame
rate (e.g. 6 frames per second vs. a higher 20 frames per second).
• Try moving the camera closer to the receiver.
• Remove obstructions between the receiver and camera.
The picture is white
• "Washout" or "white wash" can occur when a strong light source
is pointed at the camera lens. The camera lens is not harmed
during a white wash.
• Do not point your camera towards a bright light source.
The picture is too dark
• If using during the day, the camera may not be getting enough
light. Reconsider the position of your camera.
The picture is too bright
• If using during the day, the camera may be getting too much light.
Reconsider the position of your camera.

Range
DISCLAIMER: Certain accessories are not available in all markets.
There are several ways to boost your wireless signal as well as options to help you extend
the range of the wireless signal.
Clear Line-of-Sight
You should always try to ensure there is a clear line-of-sight between the camera and the
receiver.
Clear line of sight
Receiver
Extending Your Wireless Signal
Even with a clear line-of-sight between your camera(s) and your receiver(s), you may
experience a lower video frame rate simply due to the distance between your wireless
devices.
Accessory antennas are available that can help extend the range of your wireless signal.

Appendix D: Extending Wireless Signal Range
2.4 GHZ Directional Wireless Panel Antenna
Use the 2.4GHz Directional Wireless Panel Antenna (model #: ACCANTD9) to focus a wireless signal onto the
camera in order to increase the range of transmission
(clear line-of-sight between the camera and the antenna is
required). A 20ft extension cable is included to help to
properly position the antenna.
Directional Wireless Panel Antenna
Scenario 1: Single Receiver Installation
Attach a directional antenna to the camera and/or the receiver. It is recommended to
attach the antenna to the receiver and place it in a location that has clear line-of-sight to
the camera. Ensure that the directional antenna is pointing toward the other antenna. For
example, if the directional antenna is connected to your receiver, the directional antenna
should point at the camera (see figure above). During the installation, check the reception
on your DVR.
Scenario 2: Multiple Camera / Receiver Installation
If you are using multiple wireless cameras and receivers in your installation, attach
directional antennas to the camera(s) and receiver(s) that are farthest away from each
other. Follow these guidelines to increase the signal strength between your cameras and
receivers:
• Point directional antennas towards the receiver for each camera.
• Keep as much space as possible between each receiver.
• Keep as much space as possible between directional antennas if using more than one.
• Minimize the amount of obstructions (e.g. walls or trees) between the antennas and receivers.
• During the installation, check the reception of each camera on your DVR.
