Sensing Angle and Distance Test
To test whether the Trophy Cam can effectively monitor the area you
choose, this test is recommended to check the sensing angle and monitoring
distance of the Trophy Cam. To perform the test:
• Switch the Trophy Cam to the SETUP mode.
• Make movements in front of the camera at several positions within
the area where you expect the game or subjects to be. Try different
distances and angles from the camera.
• If the motion indicator LED light blinks, it indicates that position can be
sensed. If it does not blink, that position is outside of the sensing area.
The results of your testing will help you ﬁnd the best placement when
mounting and aiming the Trophy Cam. The height away from the ground for
placing the device should vary with the animal size appropriately. In general,
3 to 6 feet is preferred.
You can avoid potential false triggers due to temperature and motion
disturbances in front of the camera by not aiming it at a heat source or nearby
tree branches or brush (especially on windy days).
Switching ON the Camera
Once you switch to the ON mode, the motion indicator LED (red) will blink
for about 10 seconds. This gives you time to close and lock the front cover of
the Trophy Cam and then walk away. During this time, the motion indicator
LED will blink red continuously. After it stops blinking, the PIR is active, and
any motion that is detected by it will trigger the capture of photos or videos
as programmed in the SETUP Menu. Be sure you have read the descriptions
of the Capture Number, Video Length, Interval and Sensor Level parameters.
Please note, the PIR is strongly sensitive to ambient temperature. The greater
the temperature difference between the environment and your subject, the
farther the possible sensing distance. The average sensing distance is about
Before leaving the camera unattended, please check for the following:
• Are the batteries or DC power supply inserted/connected with correct
polarity and is the power level is sufﬁcient?
