Set Up a Wireless Video Camera

For this project, you will need access to an X10 wireless
camera system (Model VR36A or equal), which contains a wireless video camera
with a power supply and a wireless receiver.

1. Set up the camera tripod on a table or other support at
one end of a classroom or other large area. Mount the camera on the tripod
using the screw mount on the bottom of the camera base.

2. Plug the power supply jack into the adapter cable
attached to the camera. Plug the power supply into an AC outlet.

3. Carefully remove the rubber plug on the base of the
camera. Set the channel switch under the plug to C using a pen point or other
pointed object. The switch position at the bottom of the base (where the cord
exits) is A. The position at the top is D.

4. Adjust the camera antenna so its broadcast side is toward
the opposite end of the room where the receiver is.

5. Point the camera where you want its image to be. The
camera is now transmitting.

6. Check the television and receiver you set up in Project
9-3. Is the television showing a picture from the camera? If it is, adjust the
antennas to get the best quality picture you can.

7. If there is no picture, check the settings for the camera
and receiver to be sure they match and also check all connections to be sure
they are secure. Check the television to be sure it is set on the input
channel. Troubleshoot the system using the instructions provided with the
equipment until you get a clear picture on the television screen.
