Congratulations on your purchase of WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD. We are very proud of this camera and we are sure you will be pleased with it as well. We appreciate your business and want to earn your trust. Please refer to the notes below and instructions in this manual to ensure that you are completely satisfied with this product.TA RT GUIDE: STEPS
Step 1: Purchase and activate a SIM card from your mobile phone service provider. An SMS/MMS (voice+text) enabled SIM card is recommended if you have unlimited text messaging, as it will minimize costs and allow control of the camera remotely via text messages. Select a SIM card that also supports data (SMTP) if you also want the option to receive images from the camera via email through your data plan.
Step 2: Insert the SIM card into the Wireless Trophy Cam HD (slot on top left edge). Install batteries (12x AA lithium or alkaline) and an SD or SDHC card (up to 36GB). Attach the antenna by screwing it onto the socket at the top of the camera. Please refer to the full instruction manual for complete, detailed directions.
Step 3: Set the Power/Mode Switch to “SETUP”. You should see the wireless signal strength indicator bars once a connection has been established (allow time for this).
Step 4A (MMS Setup): Press the MENU key, then press the LEFT arrow key 3 times to go to “Wireless Setting”. Press the OK key, then select “MMS Setting” (if you are using an SMS/MMS capable SIM card) and press OK again. Highlight “Auto Setting” and press the OK key. Select your country (where your mobile phone service is based) using the UP/DOWN arrow keys and press OK. Select your mobile service provider and press OK.
If “Auto Setting” does not work (which may be due to recent changes made by your service provider) or if your mobile service provider is not on the list for your country, please use the “Manual Setting” option instead. Your service provider can help you with the correct settings to enter.
Step 4B (SMTP Setup): If you are using an SMTP enabled SIM card, and wish to get images via data rather than text, select “SMTP Setting” instead, then press OK. Highlight “Auto Setting” and press the OK key. Select your country using the UP/DOWN arrow keys and press OK. Select your mobile service provider and press OK key. Then select the type of mail and press OK, you will find the APN, Server, Port ready. You will still need to add your personal email address and password as sender. Next, select the sender's "SMTP Type" (with or without SSL), and input the receiver's email address ("Email Address" screen).
If “Auto Setting” does not work, please use the “Manual Setting” option instead. For example, Gmail is a recommended choice of sender. To setup, use "smtp.gmail.com", Port 465, with SSL.
Step 5: From the “MMS” or “ SMTP” screen, you can also set up an email address to receive data from the camera (this is the only option when using SMTP, as receiving images via text is not possible. For SMS/MMS operation, email is optional in addition to phone (text) receipt of images). Select “Email Address” then press OK. Press OK again to begin entering your email address. When finished, press the MENU key to save it.
Step 6: Test the camera to ensure that you will receive images. With the camera switched to “SETUP”, and a wireless signal confirmed by green bars at the right of the antenna icon, press the LEFT arrow key. You will see a “Step” display while the camera snaps and transmits a photo, followed by “Wireless test over!” and a “Send Success!” or “Communication Err” message. If success is indicated, check your text messages and/or email for the test image. If the camera displayed an error message, try the test again, after double checking the steps and settings listed above. You may also ask your wireless provider to verify that all wireless related data/numbers as shown in the menus are correct and current.
Step 7: (Optional) From the “Wireless Setting” menu screen, select “Preferences” and press OK. Select your preferred Image Size (smaller image files are lower quality but can be transmitted faster/cheaper). Set a “Daily Max Number” to limit the total quantity of images you receive within a 24 hour period.
About the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD
The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD is a digital scouting camera. It can be triggered by any movement of game in a location, detected by a highly sensitive Passive Infra-Red (PIR) motion sensor, and then take high quality pictures (up to 12MP still photos), or video clips.
The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD consumes very little power (less than 0.25 mA) in a stand-by (surveillance) state. This means it can deliver a long battery life when the device is powered by the full capacity of AA alkaline batteries, and even longer utilizing lithium AA batteries. Once motion in the monitored area is detected, the digital camera unit will be triggered at once (typically within one second) and then automatically take photos or videos according to previously programmed settings. The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD is equipped with built-in infrared LEDs that function as a flash, so that it delivers clear photos or videos (in black & white) even in the dark, and it can take color photos or videos under sufficient daylight. The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD is designed for outdoor use and is resistant against water and snow.
Your trail camera is one of the latest generation of WIRELESS Trophy Cam HDs, and includes many new or improved features, including:
• Auto PIR Sensitivity - the camera monitors ambient temperature conditions and automatically adjusts the sensor/trigger signal to be more sensitive to slight variations in temperature on hot days, less sensitive on cold days.
• Hyper Night Vision - The IR LED Flash array now has increased range, brighter output and better coverage for improved nighttime images.
• Field Scan 2x with Live Trigger - This “time lapse” feature includes the option for a second block of recording with its own start/stop times. Trigger signals generated by nearby wildlife activity will still generate additional photos/videos as they normally would, independently of the Field Scan operation.
• GPS Geotag Capability - allows the user to input the longitude and latitude of the camera’s position, which will be embedded in each photo file. This enables Google Earth, Picassa and other geotag enabled software to automatically show a map pinpointing each camera’s location when a group of photos are reviewed on a computer. Especially
useful for those who setup multiple WIRELESS Trophy Cam HDs to monitor large or widely separated areas.
• Multi Flash Mode (LED Control) - prevents overexposed flash photos in close range applications
• NV Shutter - user can select shutter speed for images captured at night allowing control over brightness vs. ability to stop motion
• Camera Operating Mode can be limited to Day only, Night only, or 24HRs and many more features such as 1080p HD Video with Audio, widescreen or fullscreen format still photos, imprintable camera name (user set) along with current data including temperature and moon phase.
The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD can be used as a trail camera for scouting or observation. It is also suitable for surveillance usage.
PARTS AND CONTROLS
The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD provides the following connections for external devices: USB port, SD card slot and external DC power in. A 3-way power switch is used to select the main operating modes: OFF, SETUP, and ON (pg 9, Fig. 2). A control key interface with six keys is primarily used in SETUP mode to select operational functions and parameters. As shown on the next page, these keys are: UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, OK and MENU. Four of the keys can also perform a second function (shortcut operations in SETUP mode) in addition to their main function: The DOWN key can be used to set the camera to Photo mode(still camera icon), and the UP key can set the camera to Video mode (movie camera icon). The RIGHT key also serves as the manual shutter (“SHOT”) button of the camera. The OK key can be used to review an image or video. These secondary functions are indicated by icons or text above the key (Fig. 2).
INSTALLING THE BATTERIES AND SD CARD
Before you begin learning how to use your WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD, you will first need to install a set of batteries and insert an SD card. Although that may only take you a minute, there are some important notes about both batteries and SD cards you should be aware of, so please take the time to read the following directions and cautions:
After opening the latch on the right side of the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD, you will see that the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD has twelve battery slots. For maximum battery life, you should install a full set of batteries. The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD may also be operated by just four batteries installed in the first slots only (starting on the left-see photo). Battery life will be shorter with 4 batteries, but the camera will operate normally. Whether you use 4 or a full set, be sure to insert each battery with correct polarity (negative or “flat” end against the long spring of each battery slot). recommends using a full set of new lithium AA (Energizer® brand) or alkaline AA batteries. NiMh Rechargeable batteries are not recommended, as the lower voltage of 1.2v they produce can cause operational issues. When the camera's internal (AA) batteries become weak, the low-battery indicator LED will glow blue, indicating the camera's batteries should be changed. You will also receive an alert if battery levels drop via MMS or email when wireless is on.
Inserting the SD Card
Insert the SD card (with the camera’s power switch in the OFF position) before beginning to operate the camera. Don’t insert or remove the SD card when the power switch is in the ON position. The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD uses a standard SD (Secure Digital) memory card to save photos (in .jpg format) and/or videos (in .mov format). SD and SDHC (High Capacity) cards up to a maximum 36GB capacity are supported. Using high speed SD cards (SanDisk® SDHC rated class 6 or higher) is recommended if you will use the 1280x720 or 1920x1080 HD video settings.
Before inserting the SD card into the card slot after opening the camera’s front cover, please make sure that the write-protect switch on the side of the card is “off” (NOT in the “Lock” position). The following describes how to insert and remove the SD card:
• Insert the SD card into the card slot with its label side upwards. A “click” sound indicates that the card is installed successfully. If the wrong side of the card is facing up, you will not be able to insert it without force. There is only one correct way to insert cards. If the SD card is not installed correctly, the device will not display an SD card icon on the LCD in SETUP mode. Formatting the SD card by using the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD’s “Format” parameter before using it for the first time is recommended, especially when a card has been used in other devices.
• To take out the SD card, just gently push in the card (do not try to pull it out without pushing in first). The card is released from the slot and ready to be removed when you hear the click.
WARNING: Be sure the camera’s power is switched OFF before inserting or removing SD cards or batteries.SIM card slot
INSTALLING THE ANTENNA AND SIM CARD
Inserting the SIM Card
Purchase and activate a SIM card from your mobile phone service provider. An SMS/MMS (voice+text) enabled SIM card is recommended if you have unlimited text messaging, as it will minimize costs. You will also have the option to control the camera remotely via text messages. Select a SIM card that also supports data (SMTP or SSMTP) if you prefer to receive images from the camera via email through your data plan. Insert your activated SIM card in the slot near the top left corner of the display.
Attaching the Antenna
As the wireless antenna is not pre-mounted (for packaging considerations), you will need to attach it to the camera to enable wireless operation. Simply screw the threaded base of the antenna onto the socket at the top of the camera. Make sure it is securely attached, but do not over-tighten it. When not using the antenna, replace rubber cap to keep out dust and dirt.
USING THE WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD
Once you’ve prepared your WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD by properly installing batteries and an SD card, you could simply take it outside, strap it to a tree, switch it on and leave. You might get some great photos that are exactly what you wanted. However, we highly recommend that you first spend some additional time indoors with this manual and your camera until you know a bit more about what the 3-way switch and those control keys do. If nothing else, you’ll probably want to at least set the date and time so the camera will imprint them on your photos as they are taken, learn how to set the camera to shoot video clips instead of still photos if you like, and read some tips about mounting it on a tree.
THE OFF, ON, AND SETUP MODES
The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD has three basic operational modes:
• OFF mode: Power switch in the OFF position.
• ON mode: Power switch in the ON position (LCD screen is off.)
• SETUP mode: Power switch at SETUP position (LCD screen is on).
The OFF mode is “safe” mode when any actions must be taken, e.g., replacing the SD card or batteries, or transporting the device. You will also use OFF mode if you connect the camera to a computer’s USB port later to download your photos/videos. And of course, when you are storing or not using the camera, you will switch it to OFF. Please note that even in the OFF mode the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD still consumes power at a very low level. Therefore, it’s a good idea to take the batteries out of the battery compartment if the camera will not be used for a long time.
Anytime after the batteries and SD card have been inserted, you can switch on the camera. When the power switch is moved to the top position, the camera will enter into the ON (Live) mode. The motion indicator LED will blink red for about 10 seconds. This interval allows time for you to close the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD’s front cover, lock it, and leave the monitored area. Once in the ON mode, no manual controls are needed or possible (the control keys have no effect). The WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD will take photos or videos automatically (according to its current parameter settings)when it is triggered by the PIR sensor’s detection of activity in the area it covers.
You can either move the power switch directly from OFF to ON mode, or stop at the SETUP position first to change one or more settings, then move the switch to ON after you have finished doing so.
In the SETUP mode you can check and change the settings of the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD with the help of its built-in LCD. These settings, found in the SETUP Menu, let you change the photo or video resolution, interval between photos, switch the time imprint on, etc. Moving the power switch to the SETUP position will turn on the LCD display, and you will see an information screen that shows how many images have been taken, the battery level, camera or video mode, etc.
NOTE: Always move the power switch from OFF to SETUP mode. It is possible that the camera could lockup if it is switched from ON to SETUP mode. If this occurs, simply move the switch to OFF and then push it up to SETUP again.
SETUP Mode Shortcut Keys/Functions
As mentioned earlier in “Parts & Controls”, five of the keys below the LCD have secondary, “shortcut” functions when the camera is switched to SETUP mode (but the MENU key has not been pressed):
• Press the UP key to quickly set the camera to shoot video clips.
• Press the DOWN key to quickly set the camera to take still photos.
• Press the RIGHT key to manually trigger the shutter. This is useful for testing the camera-make sure you are in SETUP mode, press the RIGHT key, and a few seconds later a photo or video (depending on how the camera was set) will be saved to the SD card (or internal memory if no card is inserted). The “number of images taken” counter on the top right of the LCD will increase by one. If the display indicates “SD PROTECTED” when you press the SHOT key, switch the camera OFF, remove the SD card and slide its protect switch off.
• Press the LEFT key to snap and send a test photo. You will see a "Step"display, followed by "Wireless test over!" and confirmation of wireless communication (or error).
• Press the OK key to review a photo or video on the display. See "Reviewing Images on the Color LCD".
Using the SETUP Menu to Change Settings
The main purpose of the SETUP mode is to allow you to change the settings of the camera’s parameters, so your WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD operates exactly the way you want it to. You will do this by entering the SETUP Menu and pressing the keys below the LCD display, which will show you each parameter and its setting.
Changing Parameter Settings in SETUP Mode
A wide range of options or “parameters” are provided to allow you to set the WIRELESS Trophy Cam HD to your operational preferences. To change the setting of any parameter you must first switch to the SETUP mode. Once in SETUP mode, pressing the MENU button will allow you to select any parameter and change its setting. The name of the parameter and its current setting will be shown on the LCD. Pressing the RIGHT or LEFT key scrolls to the next or previous parameter, and pressing the UP or DOWN key lets you select a different setting for the currently displayed parameter. Once you have selected your preferred new setting for a parameter, press the OK button to save the new setting (actually change it). When you finished changing the settings of one or more parameters, press MENU again to exit the SETUP menu. MENU can also be pressed anytime you want to cancel changing a parameter’s setting after a new setting has been selected. After setting the parameters to your preferences, be sure to move the switch to ON to begin actually taking photos or videos. No images will be captured if the switch is left in the SETUP position (unless you press the RIGHT/Shot key after exiting the menu)-in fact, the camera will power off automatically after a few minutes with no key pressed.
