Installation Tips

The Wire-Free cameras use a passive infrared (PIR) motion sensor to ensure video is only recorded when motion is detected. Follow the tips below for more accurate motion detection and to optimize battery life:

  • It is recommended to place your camera at least 7ft (2.1m) above the ground and angle it slightly downward toward the monitoring area, excluding any busy areas (e.g., sidewalks or roadways).

    Camera Placement

  • Ensure the camera image is free of obstructions (i.e., tree branches).

  • Position the camera no more than 20ft (6.1m) away from the area you wish to monitor.

  • For best performance, position the camera so that objects of interest will move from side-to-side across the camera image, rather than moving towards or away from the camera.

  • Install the camera within range of the wireless receiver. Refer to your product specification sheet for details. Click here for downloads and documentation for your product.

  • This camera is weather resistant for outdoor use (IP65 rated). Installation in a sheltered location is recommended.

  • Battery life will vary based on temperature, settings and number of events

To install your Wire-Free cameras:

  1. Set the mounting bracket in the desired mounting position. Mark holes through the mounting bracket (shown as orange X’s below).
