Setting Up the Camera
The term “wireless" may be a little inaccurate in this situation. Yes, the signal from the camera to the receiver is wireless but the camera normally needs to be plugged in to achieve power, so make sure the camera is within distance of an electrical outlet or can be wired through a wall to one. Some operate on batteries but do you really want your battery to die unexpectedly right before someone breaks into your home? With that said, how to operate wireless miniature camera systems is fairly a straightforward effort.
The first thing you must decide when setting up the system is where to place the camera and what you want it to focus on. If you own a store and set it up there, you might want it placed in a manner to focus on the cash register or the most valuable items for sale in the store. Many stores have numerous cameras set up around the store to capture various important locations.
If you have more than one camera, each one needs to have its own specific channel it is set to. Most systems have the channels either numbered (1-4) or they use letters (A-D). Make sure two cameras are not set to the same channel or they will interfere with each other's reception and you won’t get a picture.
If you are safeguarding your home, you might put it outdoors with it pointed towards your front or back door. If you set this up right, it can help alert you of prowlers trying to get into your home. If the receiver is hooked up to a recorder, it can also provide police with actual footage of the burglar breaking in to help identify and arrest the perpetrator. Other places to put it could be inside the home aimed at the door or in specific rooms with valuables in sight.
