Important Once you connect the camera to your computer via the USB cable/ports, the camera will then draw power from the computer. When completing the viewing, transferring, copying or deletion of images, please make sure that you DISCONNECT THE USB CABLE FROM BOTH THE CAMERA AND THE COMPUTER, as you will not be able to power the camera OFF until you do so. The directions as contained herein assume that you are using a Microsoft operating 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 in the Field -Place the camera 25-30 feet from your target area for optimal image quality. -Try to avoid mounting the camera directly facing the rising or setting sun so sunlight isn’t directly hitting the lenses. -If mounting to a dusty environment (such as a feeder), regularly clean the camera lens cov- ers, incandescent flash cover and PIR sensor cover. -Periodically check the camera mounting to ensure it doesn’t become loose. -To keep any water from damaging the unit, the camera door must remain closed with the latch secured tightly while the camera is in use. -Regularly remove the battery compartment cover to inspect the batters for any corrosive build-up, as this may harm the camera. page 20
