Please remember to switch from SETUP to ON after the camera logs into the network. The camera will take pictures or videos as programmed. The height you mount your camera depends on what your targets are, but 3-4 feet off the ground is generally best for wildlife. The Video will not be transmitted wirelessly.
The green light on the front of the camera should flash for a few seconds to give you time to move out of the area. If it continues to flash for more than a few seconds, you have left the camera in SETUP mode rather than turning it ON.
Important: When you are ready to retrieve the SD card or change the settings, turn the camera off first by pushing the power switch to the OFF position. (Even in the OFF mode, the camera still consumes a small amount of battery power. You should remove the batteries if the camera is not in use for an extended time. This will also prevent the battery leak which is not covered by warranty.)
