- Insert 4x AA batteries: high-density, high-performance alkaline, rechargeable Alkaline or NiMH batteries are recommended. A DC 6-Volt, 2 Amp external power supply adapter (not included) can alternately be used to power the camera.
- Insert SD card before turning on camera. Additionally, ensure the SD card's physical lock switch is in the unlocked position. The camera will not function without an SD card installed. It will function if the SD card is locked, but it will be unable to store any images or videos.
NOTE: Do not remove the SD card while the camera is on. This could damage the internal components.
NOTE: You can format the SD card through the camera settings.
- Press and hold the power button to turn the camera on.
If the camera is left unattended for 20 seconds, the camera will switch to “Hunting Mode”, which is the normal operation for the camera to react to motion and capture photos/videos. Before entering “Hunting Mode”, the front (red) LED light will continuously blink for approximately 10 seconds and then turn off – this allows you to lock and mount the camera before the PIR sensor becomes active and starts taking recording.
Press the “OK” key to wake the camera up while it is in Hunting Mode.
Manual Image / Video Capturing

Turning Camera Off
Press and hold down the OK/POWER button to power off the camera. Please note that even while off, the camera still consumes a small amount of battery power. Therefore, please remove the batteries if the camera is not in use for long periods.

PIR Trigger sets the PIR sensor. The sensitivity of the PIR is affected by temperature. Higher temperatures leads to lower sensitivity. It is recommended to use HIGH sensitivity in areas with little environmental interference and also for warmer, humid temperatures or climates. Use LOW sensitivity for areas that have a lot of interference.
