Microwave Interference

The X10 Sentinel PTZ Camera can be operated both wired and wirelessly for maximum efficiency. When wireless, the Sentinel runs on a standard 2.4 GHz frequency, and can sometimes receive interference by other electronics on the same frequency.

Most microwaves run on that very same radio frequency. If you’ve tried all of our other troubleshooting tips and you’re still getting a fuzzy picture on your TV screen from your Sentinel, the problem could be radio interference from your microwave. Try unplugging it and seeing if the picture clears up. If it does, then you’ve nailed the problem, and you should make sure the back of the microwave is facing the wall and also try placing your Sentinel as far away from the microwave as possible (in another room, if you can) to decrease interference.
