Begin programming the M.I.N.E™ Camera for operation by removing the
protective cap and installing the standard antenna onto the antenna jack.
Ensure the black rubber O-ring is not removed from the antenna jack
threads. Twist the antenna base snug but do not over tighten.
Unlock the full length locking latch to access the main body. Follow the
battery polarity symbols located on the front of the battery tray to properly
install 12 each batteries. We only recommend Energizer brand AA Lithium
batteries for the best performance in the field. Alkaline or rechargeable AA
batteries will not operate high-tech equipment nearly as long.
The camera will function in emergency situations using only four AA Lithium
batteries in the two left columns. We recommend our 6 volt external power
supply for extended, long-term camera use in the field. AA Lithium batteries
are still required for initial start-up until the camera housing is closed and the
6 volt external power supply cable is inserted into the camera battery port.
Insert an activated SIM card into the SIM card port with the notch located in
the top right-hand corner. A formatted SD card must be used for the camera
to function. Move the selector switch from OFF to SETUP. The camera will immediately power OFF after the logo is displayed.
The camera supports up to a 32 GB SD card. Ensure the SD card is not
locked and insert it into the SD card port. Move the selector switch from OFF
to SETUP. The screen will display “Searching Network” at the bottom center
of the screen. It usually takes 20 to 30 seconds for the camera to find the
network. AT&T or T-Mobile will appear in the top center of the screen after
connecting to the network and the signal strength symbol will appear in the
