With technological advancement stepping into almost every domain, these wired security cameras have now been replaced by their wireless counterparts.
Still, if you have already bought a wired security camera and thinking of turning it into a wireless version, you can do it via the following steps.
Recommended steps for making a wired security camera wireless
Look out for the video ‘out’ jack.
Check out the back of the camera while looking for the ‘video out’ jack that is coated with a yellow ring.
Connect the video cable to the security camera.
Now gently connect one of the ends of the video cables to the ‘video out’ jack of the camera and the other end to the ‘video in ‘ jack of the wireless transmitter. Please check that the same must also be coated with yellow color and clearly labeled.
Switch on the camera and transmitter.
You now need to turn on both the camera and the transmitter. By now, the camera must be able to send video signals and images to the transmitter, which would then transmit the same signals to the receiver via radio frequency.
Establishing a connection with the monitor
Once you are done with the same process, you need to connect with the monitor.
To get along with the same process, carefully connect the wireless receiver’s ‘ video out’ jack with the ‘video in ‘ jack of the monitor.
You will most probably find the receiver’s jack at the backside. Still, do check the details on the device for the same as it may differ according to the respective manufacturer.
If you are using a monitor, you can find the jack at the sides. On the other hand, the jack can be found at the back if you are using a television monitor for the same purpose.
Turning on the monitor and receiver
Once been through with the previous process, you are now required to turn on the monitor and the receiver while setting the monitor to its proper video channel.
The same setting must be labeled as ‘Input’ or ‘ Video’ on the device.
Tuning the wireless receiver
Now tune in the wireless receiver as per the instruction given in the user manual for the device. Please keep it going until the same gets synced with the wireless video transmitter.
You can now see the images transmitted by the camera on the monitor’s screen.
