Wireless Configuration with the Scout Camera Box
iPhone LED Tab Configuration

Preparing the LED for Wireless Operation

Before connecting to the Scout Camera Box with your mobile device, the LEDs (and the rest of the components) will need to be configured to all operate on the same wireless channel. This is the only setting that needs to be verified. All of the wireless devices used in the setup need to have the same wireless channel so that all of the devices can talk to each other. This includes the Scout Sensors, Camera Box, and all of the Scout LEDs. This setting can be found in the LED menu by going to System Settings -> Wireless Settings -> Channel. All devices are shipped with the wireless channel set to 15 from the factory.

LED Adjustments

Once the LED is configured as described above, use Wi-Fi to connect to the Camera Box. The Camera Box will go out and search for all of the devices on its wireless channel and they will appear as tabs in your Scout mobile app (see the image on the left). If you have three LEDs they will show up on three separate tabs. This will allow you to make power adjustments to each LED from your phone. To adjust the power simply slide the control to the desired setting. In addition to the power it is possible to change the hours the LED is active. This allows you to use your LEDs during the night only. Each LED can also be test fired independently by pressing the "Light Bulb" button. You can test all of the LEDs at once by interrupting the sensor and taking a test video clip.

LED Configuration Example - Sony Video

The Sony A7S series of cameras are extremely popular for camera trapping due to there exceptional low light performance. To Trigger these cameras to record video you will need the Sony Video Switch to send the proper commands to start and stop video through the multi-terminal port. For this setup the Camera Box (or sensor) settings for the camera will be:

Camera Box Settings to Record Video with Sony A7SII
#pics: 1
Delay: 2 sec Give the camera time to wake up.
On Time: 30 sec Video clip length.
Off Time: 10 sec Camera shut down time.
Extend On: Yes If motion is detected extend record time.
Final Off: Yes Apply final off time even if we the number of pics is 1.

In this case we would want to configure the LED for an On Time of 32 seconds. 32 sec comes from adding the delay time of 2 sec + the video record time of 30 sec. We also want to have an off time of 10 seconds with the "Extend On" option checked. If you don't account for the wake-up time and the extended on time it is possible for the LED and camera to get out of sync.
