Environmental Mode Menu

Use the ENVIRONMENT MODE menu to select the appropriate mode for the cameras viewing environment:

NEWAPP14.png


  • INDOOR MODE: Used for normal indoor environments (50-60Hz)

Power line frequency or mains frequency is the frequency of the oscillations of alternating current (AC) in an electric power grid transmitted from a power plant to the end-user. In large parts of the world this is 50 Hz, although here in America, and some parts of Asia it is typically 60 Hz. AirSight IP cameras have multi-voltage (100-240VAC, 50-60Hz) power supplies for use in both environments - the Light Frequency is simply to communicate to the software which one is in use - however it is unlikely that changing from 50Hz to 60Hz will provide a noticeable difference.


  • OUTDOOR MODE: Used for cameras mounted outdoors or facing out windows

NOTE: Facing a camera out a window renders them useless for night time viewing due to the reflection of the IR LEDs.



PHOTOS & VIDEO Tab
