I only see B&W on my color infrared camera, why?
Infrared cameras have sensors that sense the amount of light or illumination in front of the camera. In evenings, when the sunsets, the infrareds turn on and switch the camera image sensor to B&W mode for picture clarity in low light. Infrared sensors can also turn on when there is a shade over the camera, such as from a nearby tree, building, or canopy. In this situation where there is a shade on the camera, the infrared sensor may think it is dark outside and switch to night vision mode, and provides a B&W picture. To make sure your camera is functioning properly, test it in daylight to see if it displays a color picture.
How do I setup Wireless Camera to connect to a DVR?
There are 2 options:
Option 1 - Connecting an auto switching receiver such as the one in ASC-4220
to a DVR which will record only one video per input channel.
Option 2 - Connect the wireless receiver directly to a multi-channel recording device such as a four channel DVR that will record each all four camera video streams independently since the DVRs have a built-in quad processor.
How can I view my wireless camera from two different locations?
You can use two independent receivers in two separate locations within transmission range of the security cameras. The wireless receivers have to be of the same frequency as the wireless cameras.
I am getting bad reception with my wireless camera. What can I do to improve the picture quality?
Regardless of manufacturer, 2.4GHz wireless cameras are prone to interference with any 2.4GHz appliance. This interference can be caused by other 2.4GHz wireless devices like wireless routers, cordless phones and microwave.
