Press “►” to select item, press “▲” or “▼” to change the value. The valid value for year is between 2009 and 2050. Photo Burst The shooting number of each triggering in Camera mode.
SG560X-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations PIR. There are three parameters: High, Normal， and Low. The default value is “Normal.” The higher degree indicates that the camera is more easily triggered by motion, taking more pictures or recording more videos. It is recommended to use high sensitivity degree in a room or environment with little interference, and to use low sensitivity for outdoor or environment with lots of interferences like hot wind, smoke, near window, etc.
SG560X-8mHD 4 Advanced Operations according to the preset settings. Light Mode This parameter defines the light mode of this dual light camera. There are two light modes: Xenon and Infrared. In Xenon mode, the camera takes clear pictures using incandescent flash when the lighting is insufficient. Note: if the camera is in Video mode and the Light mode is Xenon, the camera will automatically turn to Infrared mode to take IR video clips.

SG560X-8mHD 5 Mounting the Camera 5 Mounting the Camera When using the camera in outdoor environment, such as scouting or monitoring the living habits of wild animals, you need to mount the device on a certain place properly. It is recommended to mount the camera on a tree with diameter about 5.9 inches. To get the optimal picture quality, the recommended distance is 16 ft from the tree to the target monitoring area and height from the ground is 4.9 ft~6.5 ft (1.5m~2m).

It’s an IR-Cut filter. When the camera is powered on, the IR-Cut will be reset and cover the lens. Only when the camera is powered off, the IR-Cut will be at a random place. 2 The camera controller is not working anymore. A: Most likely, no SD card has been inserted in the camera when it is turned on.
SG560X-8mHD AppendixⅠ: PIR Detection Zone Appendix I: PIR Detection Zone Fig. 8 shows Bolymedia’s 4 kinds of detection range at different detection angles. This camera is super long range with 60 degree. Figure 8: PIR Detection Zone The PIR detection angle (α) is just smaller than the field of view (FOV) angle (β). The advantage of this design is to reduce empty picture rate and capture most, if not all, motions. Figure 9: Detection angle vs.
SG560X-8mHD AppendixⅠ: PIR Detection Zone This camera has a new, patented design of PIR. The new patented PIR’s detection range can reach to 100 ft (30 m) in good environments. Fig. 10 shows the comparison of the detection zones between normal PIR and the new patented PIR.
