Installation Tips

  • Do not face the camera toward any light sources.
  • Do not point the camera toward a glass window. Or, it may result in poor image quality
    because of the window glare by infrared LEDs, ambient lights, or status lights.
  • Do not place the camera in a shaded area and point it towards a well-lit area. Or, it may
    result in poor image quality. To ensure the best image quality, the lighting condition for both the
    camera and the captured object shall be the same.
  • To ensure better image quality, it’s recommended to clean the lens with a soft cloth from
    time to time.
  • Make sure the power ports are not directly exposed to water or moisture and not blocked
    by dirt or other elements.
  • With IP waterproof ratings, the camera can work properly under conditions like rain and
    snow. However, it doesn't mean the camera can work underwater.
  • Do not install the camera at places where rain and snow can hit the lens directly.
  • The camera may work in extremely cold conditions as low as -25°C. Because when it is
    powered on, the camera will produce heat. You may power on the camera indoors for a few
    minutes before installing it outdoors.
  • Try to keep the left lens level with the right lens.
