Important Safeguards and Warnings
- All installation and operation should conform to your local electrical safety codes.
- The power supply must conform to the requirements of ES1 in IEC 62368-1 standard and be no higher than PS2. Note that the power supply requirements are subject to the device label.
- Make sure the power supply is correct before operating the device.
- A readily accessible disconnect device shall be incorporated into the building installation wiring.
- Prevent the power cable from being trampled or pressed, especially the plug, power socket, and the junction extruded from the device.
- Do not aim the device at strong light to focus, such as lamp light and sunlight; otherwise, it might cause over brightness or light marks, which are not the device malfunction, and affect the longevity of Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS).
- Do not place the device in a damp or dusty environment, extremely hot or cold temperatures, or locations with strong electromagnetic radiation or unstable lighting.
- Keep the device away from any liquid to avoid damage to the internal components.
- Keep the indoor device away from rain or dampness to avoid fire or lightning.
- Keep sound ventilation to avoid heat accumulation.
- Transport, use, and store the device within the range of allowed humidity and temperature.
- Heavy stress, violent vibration, or water splash are not allowed during transportation, storage, and installation.
- Pack the device with standard factory packaging or the equivalent material when transporting the device.
- Install the device in a location where only the professional staff with relevant knowledge of safety guards and warnings can access it. The accidental injury might happen to the non-professionals who enter the installation area when the device is operating normally.
Operation and Daily Maintenance
- Do not touch the heat dissipation component of the device to avoid scalding.
- Carefully follow the instructions in the manual when performing any disassembly operation on the device; otherwise, it might cause water leakage or poor image quality due to unprofessional disassembly. Please make sure that the gasket ring is flat and properly installed in the groove before installing the cover. Please contact after-sale service for desiccant replacement if there is condensed fog on the lens after unpacking or when the desiccant turns green (Not all models are included with the desiccant).
- We recommend using the device together with a lightning arrester to improve the lightning protection effect.
- We recommend grounding the device to enhance reliability.
- Do not touch the image sensor (CMOS) directly. Dust and dirt could be removed with an air blower, or you can wipe the lens gently with a soft cloth that is moistened with alcohol.
- You can clean the device body with a soft dry cloth, and for stubborn stains, use the cloth with mild detergent. To avoid possible damage to the device body coating which could cause a performance decrease, do not use volatile solvents such as alcohol, benzene, or diluent to clean the device body, nor can strong, abrasive detergent be used.
- The Dome cover is an optical component. Do not touch or wipe the cover with your hands directly during installation or operation. For removing dust, grease, or fingerprints, wipe gently with moistened oil-free cotton with diethyl or moistened soft cloth. You can also remove dust with an air blower.
- Strengthen the protection of network, device data, and personal information by adopting measures that include but are not limited to using strong passwords, changing passwords regularly, upgrading the firmware to the latest version, and isolating computer networks. For some devices with old firmware versions, the ONVIF password will not be changed automatically along with changing the system password, and you need to upgrade the firmware or manually change the ONVIF password.
- Use standard components or accessories provided by the manufacturer and make sure the device is installed and maintained by professional engineers.
- Do not expose the surface of the image sensor to laser beam radiation in an environment where a laser beam device is used.
- Do not provide two or more power supply sources for the device unless otherwise specified. A failure to follow this instruction might cause damage to the device.
Waterproof all the cable joints with insulating tape and waterproof tape to avoid short circuits and water damage. For the detailed operation, see the FAQ manual.
