Important The directions as contained herein assume that you are using a Microsoft operat- ing system and not Linux or a Mac-based operating system. Even said, there may be slight variations in your process based on the specific version of the operation system that you are using as well as the predefined user preference for each computer. The below listed steps are to serve as a guideline and may have to be slightly modified based on the specific operating system and preference as on your personal computer. TIPS: Recommended distance from target area is 25-30 feet for optimal imaging quality. To improve the quality of your images, try not to mount the unit facing the rising or the setting sun in order to avoid direct sunlight into the camera lens. If mounting to a feeder unit or dusty environment, be sure to clean the cam- era lens cover, incandescent flash cover, and the PIR sensor cover on a regular basis. Periodically check the mounting of the camera to insure it is not loose. Make sure that you securely latch the door closed each and every time you use the unit, as the moisture seal will not be activated unless closed properly. Check batteries frequently to insure no corrosive build-up, as this may cause harm to the camera. page 10
