Users should always test their camera at a new location prior to erecting a
feeder or a trap enclosure. Move the selector switch from OFF to SETUP.
The screen will display “Checking Network”. Allow approximately 20 to 30
seconds for the camera to acquire a cellular signal. If the camera does not
automatically connect to the cellular network within 60 seconds, the standard
antenna is not sufficient at this location and the camera will be unable to
send texts and photos via MMS. Our five decibel booster antenna mounted
to a 16 foot long telescoping antenna will be necessary for remote cellular
operation in low signal areas.
Drive a 7 foot long T post into the ground approximately 12 inches to the
right and rear of the camera post. Attach our booster antenna with mount to
a 16 foot long telescoping pole using U-bolts or zip ties. Secure the antenna
cable to the telescoping pole in multiple locations to eliminate cable noise
Remove the standard antenna. Carefully thread the booster antenna cable
to the antenna port and tighten. Slide the rubber waterproof boot over the
booster antenna cable connector.
