Hey there and thank you for checking out this video from Orange Security – we make security cameras simple. Located here in beautiful South West Florida we serve the whole of the United States of America.
Let’s take a look at our internal dome cameras. There are 2 lens options. One is a fixed 3.6mm lens. The other is a varifocal 2.8-12mm lens. The fixed lens will give you identification at up to about 20 feet from the camera. The varifocal will be about 50 feet. For this video we will look at the adjustable zoom lens.
The connections for both power and video are industry standard. Video is BNC. There are 2. The yellow one is the full HD output and the white is standard definition analog output allowing you to connect to an older existing recorder.
The joystick in the cable allows you to access the on screen display menu for the camera. Here you can make adjustments to settings on the camera. A word of warning – the factory default settings are pretty good and we wouldn’t recommend changing them without our advice.
To remove the dome, push the tab in at the rear of the camera and the dome will come away from the camera body.
If you push this tab towards the outside of the camera, the mounting plate rotates and comes away from the body. This allows it to be fitted to the mounting surface. You can then quickly fix the camera to the mounting plate.
There are 3 holes for mounting this plate. If you want to have concealed cabling, remove the punch out hole in the middle of the base plate for the cables to go through.
There is a handy guide to show which direction should be the front to ensure the camera body points in the right direction.
Let’s look at adjusting the direction the camera points. Take a cross head screwdriver and remove the two screws either side of the collar. Squeeze it together gently and the collar will come away giving you full access to the camera itself.
Rotate the camera left and right and tilt it up and down as shown. It’s a good idea that when pointing in the right direction to tighten the screws as shown.
If you have the camera with the fixed lens, then that’s all there is to it. If you have the camera with the varifocal lens, there is also the lens adjustment.
If they are a bit stiff, take a small flat blade screwdriver and gently loosen the two lens adjusters. Don’t remove these adjusters – just loosen them so they rotate around the lens.
While watching the image output, slowly rotate the adjusters around the lens changing both the zoom and focus in small increments until you get the perfect image. When done, tighten these adjusters to stop the zoom and focus settings changing. These can be tightened by hand.
Refit the top of the camera and you’re good to go.
