General Placement Considerations

The BW140R camera can be placed on a shelf or other flat surface. You may also use the flexible to mount it along the railing.

  • The camera included is NOT weatherproof; it is an indoor camera.
  •  The clearest line-of-sight between the camera and the Wi-Fi router
    is best. Walls, especially brick and concrete, can affect connectionquality.
  •  Avoid having a direct light source in view of the camera (ceiling orfloor  lamps).
  • Carefully plan where and how the camera will be positioned, and where you will route the cable that connects the camera to the power adaptor.
  • Do not cover or obstruct the inlet holes for the temperature sensors and leavethe sensor horizontal for more accurate reading. The
    temperature reading is for reference only and there may be some variance  between the actual temperature and the temperature reading.

Wi-Fi Operating Considerations

  • Ensure the Wi-Fi signal reception is acceptable between the BW140R and the Wi-Fi router. If necessary, reduce the distance between them to improve overall system performance.
  •  As the Wi-Fi environments may vary including home construction type and wireless interference from other electronic devices, your device may indicate that the camera is disconnected or may display a black screen.
  •  Please note the camera can only connect to 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and does not support 5GHz Wi-Fi connection.

If you’re getting a weak Wi-Fi signal or you can’t connect to Wi-Fi at all on your phone at the installation area, we recommend moving your router closer or install a Wi-Fi extender to improve signal reception or selecting another installation location.

Powering the Camera

  1. Insert one end of the micro USB cable to the micro USB port on the camera  (at the back of the camera).
  2.  Connect the other end of the USB cable into the USB power adaptor.
  3. Connect the USB power adaptor into a 240 volt AC (standard indoor) power outlet.
  4.  Switch on the plug and allow the camera to power up. This can takeup to a  minute. When the camera starts flashing red, it is ready to be paired with your
