In this guide we show you how to pair your wireless cameras with your monitor. Please note this applies to our wireless systems ending with a code in '02'.
How do I pair a camera to my unit?
Important note: this is easiest done with the camera and unit close to each other, as you have a limited time to pair the screen and camera together. If the camera and screen can’t be near each other for pairing, you may need a second person to help you press the button on the rear of the camera within the timeframe available.
- First press the (MENU) button on the front of the screen
- Now press the right arrow () unit ‘Pairing’ is highlighted, and then press the (OK) button to select it
- You will now have a list ‘Camera-1’ to ‘Camera-4’, Press the down button () or up button () until you have highlighted the camera number you wish to pair, and then click the (OK) button. Please note: It is normal for the unit to say a camera is already paired to each camera number, this is where cameras have been paired in the factory for QC testing
- You’ll now have a countdown on the screen, you must now press and hold the pairing button on the rear of the camera you wish to pair. You only need to hold the pairing button on the camera for 2-3 seconds
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 to add additional cameras.
- Once you are finished press the (MENU) button, and the system will save the settings and reboot.
I have gone through the pairing process but the countdown completes and the camera doesn’t pair.
First ensure the camera has power. There should be a red light, either on the front or the back of the camera depending on model, to indicate is has power.
When you press and hold the pairing button on the camera for 2-3 seconds, a green light next to the red light should flash.
Ensure that the antennas on both the screen and camera are securely screwed on.
You can’t have an extension cable longer than 5 meters between the camera and its power supply.
If you have checked the points above, try moving the camera closer, or pairing the camera to a different camera number in the pairing screen.
Move the camera and screen into the same room to attempt pairing.
- If it now pairs, this indicates that you are going over too great a distance, or that something is causing wireless interference. In this case, you will have to consider relocating the camera to a different.
- If it still doesn’t pair in the same room, this may indicate a fault with the screen or camera. Contact our technical department to arrange a repair.
