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.

produce heat.
14. Accessories - Do not place this
video equipment on an unstable
cart, stand, tripod, or table. The
video equipment 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.
17. Camera Installation- Cameras are not intended
for submersion in water. Not all cameras can be

Check
your
camera
environmental rating to confirm if they can be
installed outdoors. When installing cameras

2. Conditions Requiring Service - Unplug this
product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to
qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
A. When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.
C. If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
E. If the product does not operate normally by
following the operating instructions. Adjust only
those controls that are covered by the operating
instructions. Improper adjustment of other controls
may result in damage and will often require extensive
work by a qualified technician to restore the product
to its normal operation.
F. When the product exhibits a distinct change in
performance. This indicates a need for service.
7. Replacement Parts - When replacement parts are
required, have the service technician verify that the
replacements used have the same safety
characteristics as the original parts. Use of
replacements specified by the product manufacturer
can prevent fire, electric shock, or other hazards.
8. Safety Check - Upon completion of any service or
repairs to this product, ask the service technician to
perform safety checks recommended by the
manufacturer to determine that the product is in safe
operating condition.
Use
1. Cleaning - Unplug the product from the wall outlet
before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol
cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.
2. Product and Cart Combination - Product and cart
combination should be moved with care. Quick stops,
excessive force, and uneven surfaces may cause the
product and cart combination to overturn.
3. Object and Liquid Entry - Never push objects of any
kind into this product through openings as they may
touch dangerous voltage points or “short-out” parts
that could result in a fire or electric shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind on the product.
4. Lightning - For added protection of this product
during a lightning storm, or when it is left unattended
and unused for long periods of time, unplug it from
the wall outlet and disconnect the antenna or cable
system. This will prevent damage to the product due
to lightning and power line surges.

1
Installing the camera
Cameras are suitable for outdoor installation, but are weather resistant,
not weather proof. Cameras are not intended for direct exposure to
rain or snow. For outdoor applications, install under shelter protected
from the elements, such as beneath roof eaves. The diagram below
shows an example of an ideal location for outdoor placement.
Example ideal outdoor location
Installation Tips:
• Before you install the camera, plan where and how it will be positioned, and where you will
route the cable that connects the camera to the power adapter.
• Before starting permanent installation, have another person check the camera image on the
monitor when camera is positioned in the same place it will be permanently installed.
• It is recommended to ensure a clear line-of-sight between the camera and receiver and to
limit the amount of obstructions, such as walls and tree branches, between the camera and
receiver. Walls made of heavy building materials such as brick or concrete will significantly
reduce signal range.
• If the signal will have to pass through a wall, placing the receiver or camera next to a window
will improve the signal strength.
• Do not install the camera pointing out of a window. The nighttime picture will be unusable
due to reflection from the night vision LED’s.
• The cameras are pre-paired so they work out of the box. Each camera has a channel number
sticker indicating what channel they are paired to. If you have purchased additional cameras,
you will need to pair them to the receiver, see “Pairing/adding cameras” on page 33.
To install the camera:
1
2
Use the included mounting screws to mount the stand to the mounting surface:
• Mark the position of the screw holes on the wall.
• Drill holes and insert the drywall plugs as needed.
• Firmly attach the stand to the wall using the provided screws.
11
2
Twist the antenna clockwise onto the antenna port on the side of the camera.
Connect antenna
3
Attach the camera to the mounting stand. Adjust the angle of the camera until the desired
view is set. Tighten the thumbscrews to secure the desired camera position.
Connect camera stand
Tighten thumb
screws
4
Connect the black power cable extending from the camera to the cable of the power adapter,
and plug in the power adapter to an outlet or surge protector. Make sure the power
connector is fully pushed in to avoid water getting in the plug.
5
Remove the protective film from the front of the camera. If the film is not removed, it will
block the built-in microphone and potentially affect the quality of the picture.
Peel protective film off

Getting started
Setting up the receiver
Step 1 of 3: Installing the antenna
Twist the antenna clockwise onto the receiver’s antenna jack located on the back of the
receiver.
Connect antenna to receiver
Step 2 of 3: Turning on the receiver
1
Connect the cable from the power adapter to the 5V DC port on the bottom panel of the
receiver. Plug in the power adapter to an outlet or surge protector.
2
Slide the power switch on the rear panel to the "ON" position.
Tips:
• Place the receiver in a location that will have a clear reception to your camera. Try to maintain
line-of-sight and minimize the number of obstructions between the camera and receiver.
• Adjust the antenna on the receiver as necessary to provide the clearest reception.
Step 3 of 3: Inserting the SD card
The SD card allows you to store video footage captured by the camera. Push the SD card into
the SD card slot on the LCD receiver until you hear a "click." The card will not be flush when
completely inserted.
NOTE: The receiver is compatible with most major brands of SD card up to 32 GB. For
recording times on SD cards, see “Minimum recording times on SD cards” on
page 15.

Recording
Motion recording
Use motion recording to have the system record only when motion is detected by one of the
cameras. The system can be set to record only from the camera that detects motion or from
the entire screen when the system is in Quad mode.
The system records motion in two ways. The cameras have built-in PIR sensor that track heat
from body movements to detect movement up to a maximum range of 21 feet (6.5 meters). PIR
motion detection is extremely accurate at detecting movements from people and animals, but
the accuracy decreases in extremely hot environments approaching or exceeding human body
temperature (98.6°F / 37°C).
The system also uses video motion detection, which looks for changes in video images
(frames) to detect motion. Video motion detection allows for motion detection beyond the
range of the PIR sensors and in extremely hot temperatures. Video motion detection is highly
accurate, but may trigger recording from changes in light or moving trees, leaves, etc. You can
set the sensitivity of video motion detection depending on your preferences (see “Configuring
video motion detection” on page 21).
PIR Motion Detection
A camera detects body heat movements, and
triggers the system to record.
Video Motion Detection
The system detects movement in the image and
triggers recording.
Both PIR and video motion detection can be used at the same time for enhanced accuracy.
Setting up motion recording
Prerequisite:
• Insert an empty SD card into the LCD receiver.
To enable motion recording:
1
During live view, press
.
• "MOTION" will light up on the LCD receiver.
2

until Quad mode is selected. By default,
• Enable Quad mode (recommended): Press
when motion is detected, the system will display and record the triggered camera on-screen.
When motion recording is complete, the view will return to Quad mode. You can also configure
the system to record the entire screen during Quad mode (see “Selecting Single Channel or
4 Channel motion recording” on page 21).
19
Recording
• Enable Auto Sequence Viewing mode: Press
until a single channel is shown. When
motion is detected, the system will display and record the triggered camera on-screen. When
motion recording is over, Auto Sequence Viewing mode will continue as normal.
• Change channels manually: Press UP/DOWN to select a camera. The system will ONLY
record the selected camera; it will not record motion detected by other cameras.
• Enable Screen Saver mode: Press
to enable screen saver mode. When motion is
detected, the system will display and record the triggered camera on-screen. When motion
recording is over, Screen Saver mode will continue as normal. For details on configuring
Screen Saver mode, see “Screen Saver (digital picture frame) mode” on page 28.
NOTE: By default, the system is set to record for 5 seconds after the triggered motion event.
For details on adjusting the motion recording time, see “Configuring motion
recording duration” on page 20 below.
3
Press
again to stop motion recording. "MOTION" will turn off on the receiver.
Recording tip:
If you are using more than one camera, it is highly recommended to use Quad mode with
Motion Recording. Quad mode allows you to see all four cameras at once. You can set the
system to record the entire screen, so that video from up to 4 cameras is recorded (to
configure 4 channel recording, see “Selecting Single Channel or 4 Channel motion recording”
on page 21).

Configuring video motion detection
Video motion detection looks for changes in video
images (frames) to detect motion. Video motion
detection allows for motion detection beyond the
range of the PIR sensors.
The drawback to video motion detection is that it
can be falsely triggered by changes in lighting
conditions or trees moving in the wind. You can
disable video motion detection or configure the
sensitivity using the menus.

Strengthening the range of the wireless signal
Strengthening the range of the wireless signal
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
The digital wireless signal is virtually interference free. However, you should always ensure
there is a clear line-of-sight between the camera and the receiver.
Clear line of sight
Clear line of sight
Cable accessory antenna
Obstacles
There should be little to no obstacles obstructing the line-of-sight between the camera and
the receiver. Solid objects, such as concrete and metal may limit the range of the wireless
signal.
Extending your wireless signal
Even with a clear line-of-sight between your camera(s) and your receiver, 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.
55
Strengthening the range of the wireless signal
2.4 GHZ Directional Wireless Panel Antenna
Use the 2.4GHz Directional Wireless Panel Antenna (model #:
ACCANTD9) to focus a wireless signal onto one specific
camera in order to increase range of transmission (clear
line-of-sight between the camera and the antenna is
required). A 20ft extension cable is included help with proper
position of the antenna.
Directional Wireless Panel Antenna
2.4 GHZ Omni-Directional Wireless Antenna
Use the 2.4GHz Omni-Directional Wireless Antenna (model #: ACCANTO8) to extend the range
and boost the signal of several wireless cameras. You should position the Omni-Directional
Wireless Antenna in an elevated position to provide a clear line-of-sight to the cameras. A 20ft
extension cable is included help with proper position of the antenna.
Visit www.lorextechnology.com for more details on wireless antennas and accessories.

Power failure indicator
Power failure indicator
A power failure may interrupt recording modes on the system. After power is restored, the
following will occur:
• The system will restart in Auto Sequence mode + Motion Recording - this ensures that some
form of recording will be immediately active on the system.
NOTE: If you had a different display view or recording mode set when the power failure
occurred, you will need to re-apply the previous display view and recording mode.
• A Power Failure icon (
) appears on-screen. The Power Failure icon indicates that a power
failure occurred while the system was actively recording (i.e. "REC" icon was on-screen).
Power Failure icon
NOTE: The icon appears only if the system was actively recording when the power failure
occurred. The icon will disappear when you press buttons on the receiver.
NOTE: Video files are saved every 10 minutes of recording. If a power failure occurs during
recording, recordings from up to 10 minutes before the power failure occurred will
not be saved.

Mounting the LCD receiver
Mounting the LCD receiver
The LCD Receiver can mounted to a wall or underneath a counter or cupboard.
To mount the LCD receiver:
1
Select a location to mount the receiver. The location should have a clear reception to your
camera(s). Place the mounting stand in the desired mounting position and mark holes for the
screws.
NOTE: 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.
2
Drill the holes, and then mount the stand to the desired surface using the provided screws.
Make sure all three screws are fastened tightly at the connection points.
3
Adjust the antenna on the LCD receiver to allow for proper clearance with your mounting
surface.
4
Attach the LCD receiver to the mounting stand. Adjust the position of the LCD receiver, and
then tighten the thumbscrews to secure.

Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Problem
There is no picture from a
Camera
The picture is dropping
The Picture is or has become
choppy
The Picture is white
Bright spot in image while
viewing camera at night
The Picture appears to be
grainy/distorted
Cannot access the menu
Solution
• Check power to the camera
• Make sure that the cameras and receiver are both ON
• Make sure that the camera is in range of the receiver
• Move the camera closer to the receiver
• Try repositioning the camera, receiver or both to improve
the reception
• The picture may become choppy when experiencing a lower
frame rate due to reduced signal strength (i.e. 10 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
• Consider increasing the range of the wireless signal with an
accessory antenna (see page 55 for details)
• Common situation know as "washout" or "whitewash"
where a strong light source is pointed at the camera lens.
The camera lens IS NOT harmed during a whitewash
• DO NOT point your camera towards a light source
• This occurs when a camera is pointed at a window to see
outside, because the night vision LED's produce Infrared
light that reflects off the glass. If you need to look outside,
install the camera outdoors. Please note that the camera
must be installed under shelter when placed outdoors
• When using with large screen TV/monitor (especially
high-definition televisions), the picture might be grainy as
the camera limits video resolution to VGA (640x480 pixels).
This is not a product defect
• For best performance use with TV/monitor PIP (Picture in
Picture) function. Check your TV/monitor product manual to
see if this feature is available on your TV/monitor
• Use with a smaller TV/monitor
• You cannot access the menu while recording is on:
• Press
"Err" appears on the
on-screen display
to disable manual or scheduled recording
• Press
to disable motion recording
• The system has encountered an error with the SD card.
Power off the receiver, remove then re-insert the SD card,
and then power the receiver back on
• If "Err" still appears on the OSD, format the SD card
