The specified website is written in the last page of the manual. 3.4 Enter into the Test Mode Slide the power switch to TEST position and enter into TEST mode. There are some functions in TEST mode: Custom settings, manual capture, preview or send MMS manually. The remote control is needed in this mode.
SG550M-8mHD 3 Quick Start Guide 3.4.1 Custom Settings Press MENU on the remote control to enter into the menu setting. The camera can be adjusted to manually customize the camera settings which display on the LCD screen. The detailed operations will be described in the “Advanced Operations” chapter. 3.4.2 Manual Capturing You can press RIGHT to manually capture a photo or record a video. 3.4.3 View Images or Videos Press OK to view images, the latest image will be shown on the LCD screen of the camera.
SG550M-8mHD 3 Quick Start Guide worked in ON mode. 3.5 Power on and Enter into the ON Mode Before switching on, please pay attention to the following: 1. Avoid temperature and motion disturbances in front of the camera such as a big leaf, curtain, air-conditioner, air outlet of the chimney and other heat sources to prevent from false triggering. 2. The height from the ground for placing the camera should vary with the object size appropriately. In general, three to six feet is preferred.
SG550M-8mHD 3 Quick Start Guide settings or previous custom settings. The camera has the sound recording function, so the sound will be embedded in the video clip while capturing a video. 3.6 Power Off Slide power switch to OFF position to turn off the camera. Please note that even in OFF mode, the camera still consumes a small amount of battery power. Therefore, please remove the batteries if the camera is not in use for long time.
SG550M-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations 4 Advanced Operations From the basic operations of the camera previewed in the previous chapter, we know that the camera has three basic operation modes: 1. OFF mode: Power switch is in OFF position. 2. ON mode: Power switch is in ON position. 3. TEST mode: Power switch is in TEST position. In the above three modes, the OFF mode is the specified safe mode when replacing the SD card or batteries and transporting the camera.
SG550M-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations Shortcut key: Press UP to set the camera mode as Video or press DOWN to set camera mode as Photo in TEST mode. You can change the date and time when necessary, e.g., after every battery change. The date format is month/day/year, the time format is Set Clock hour: minute: second. Press “►” to select item, press “▲” or “▼” to change the value. The valid value for year is between 2009 and 2050. Photo Choose the image size, e.g. 8 mega Size pixels or 5 mega pixels.
SG550M-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations timer function is disabled. Changing this parameter to a non-zero value turns on the Time Lapse mode, and camera will take photos at given time interval. Please note that if the PIR Trigger is set to Off, then the Time Lapse can’t be set to Off. PIR Trigger This parameter defines the sensitivity of the PIR. There are four sensitivity parameters: High, Normal, Low and Off. The default value is “Normal”.
SG550M-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations to set a higher sensitivity for high temperature environment. Please note that if the Time Lapse is set to Off, then the PIR Trigger can’t be set to Off. This parameter indicates how long the PIR (Passive Infrared motion sensor) will be disabled after each triggering in ON mode. During this PIR time the PIR of the device will not Interval react to the motion of human (or animals). The minimum interval is 0 second which means the PIR can work all the time.
SG550M-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations You should set the right MMS setting parameters. The settings of MMS: URL, APN, IP and Port. Please contact the network service provider if you are not familiar with the settings. The camera sends image through GPRS network with SMTP protocol to Email address. Use this way the communication cost will be much cheaper in many countries. GPRS Set You should set the right GPRS setting parameters. The settings of GPRS: Email Server, Port and APN.
SG550M-8mHD Send Mode 4 Advanced Operations Daily Report works only in ON mode, which means that the camera will report the summarized information at the preset time (if the preset time is, eg.20:00PM) on how many pictures it had taken per day. So, you will get a summarized text message with the last picture taken until 20:00PM when it is in Photo mode. If it is on Video mode, the camera will send a SMS at the preset time. The SMS will show you how many video clips the camera has taken within 24 hours.
SG550M-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations the MAX number is 10, the camera will send 10 MMS within 24 hours .And then it continues to capture photos and save them on the SD card. After 24 hours, the camera will send MMS again when it captures photos. If it is on Video mode, the Camera will send only SMS instead of MMS. If you choose “Instant”, you need to set how many MMS you want to send for economy consideration. 4) “OFF”: To disable communication function. Choose to send the image to your Phone or to Email.

SG550M-8mHD AppendixⅡ: Technical Specifications Appendix I: PIR Detection Zone Figure4 shows Bolymedia’s 4 kinds of detection range at different detection angles. Figure 4 Different detection range The PIR detection angle (α) is just smaller than the field of view angle (β). The advantage of this design is to avoid empty pictures and get most, if not all, motions. Figure 5 Detection angle VS F.O.
SG550M-8mHD AppendixⅡ: Technical Specifications SG550M-8mHD has a new design of PIR and this new PIR is patented. The new patented PIR’s detection range is extra long range. The figure 6 shows the compared detection zone between normal PIR and the new patented PIR.
