FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

Getting started with my camera

› Watch video
Optimal installation is as follows: 

  • About 3 feet from the ground or at the subject’s height.
  • The camera should be installed between 25 and 35 feet from the targeted area, aiming parallel to the ground.
  • Adjust the motion sensor sensitivity setting to about 75% as a starting point.
  • It is also best to aim the camera to the North to avoid back lighting and false detection. Backlighting will cause bad picture quality and if sun rays directly hit the optic lens, it can damage the CMOS sensor.

You have access to your account directly on the cell-phone application and on the internet portal. You can modify your personal information or add other cameras to your account in these two places.  You can also add other users, however, you must share the same email address and password.

Our cameras can be used indoors. The structure, the materials used and the size of the building can affect the quality of the cellular signal.

Please note that indoors, the camera can be powered with a 12V or USB adapter.

If your camera is a V200, the red BUSY light will come on when connected to a 12V power source as it is charging the internal battery. The red BUSY light will also light up when the camera takes a picture, and sends it to your account.

Please note that if the red BUSY light stays on all the time and your camera seems to be frozen, it may be in an error state. To correct this problem, leave the camera on to discharge with external battery out. Also put the front of the camera facing the ground, after about 24 to 48 hours the BUSY light should be off and once it is off the camera should work again without any problems.

You can reset your camera in two ways.
First via the app:

  1. navigate the settings menu within the app
  2. Click on reset settings

Note (settings are applied the next time your camera syncs with the app which depending on your current sync settings may take some time untill the changes are applied)


The second way is by downloading a reset file

  1. Download the reset file here (we need a link to the zip file here )
  2. Put the file on the SD card
  3. Once the file has been copied, put the SD card back into the V150 and turn it on.
  4. Wait about 5 minutes for the camera to update.
  5. Your camera is now up to date

V150

if you want to continue receiving your pictures over-the-air via the 4G-LTE network, leave the Cellular setting “ON”

Switch setting to “Off” if you prefer to only have your pictures on the memory card and not sent to the app over the cellular network.

(Important: if you switch your celllular setting to Off and decide to turn it back ON, your camera will have to wait untill the next time it sync with the server to apply the new settings.)

This feature was designed to preserve battery power. When it is not possible for the camera to successfully complete a synchronization, the frequency attempts are reduced until a synchronization can be completed.

When does the camera activate survival mode?

To activate the survival mode, the camera must fail 4 consecutive synchronizations (the exact amount may be subject to change). The camera will therefore only synchronize at its usual synchronization time.

How does the camera disable survival mode?

In order to disable survival mode, the camera must successfully synchronize to the VOSKER CLOUD.

Exceptions

For the first 15 minutes after activating the survival mode, the camera will still try to synchronize to the VOSKER CLOUD. If one of the synchronizations is successful during this period, the camera will immediately deactivate this mode. 

The first synchronization, the very first one after the camera is turned on (no photos are sent) does not count as a success, but it can count as a failure.

VOSKER App

V100 and V200

After the first 30 days of activation on the unlimited plan or when the plan you bought is over, your camera will automatically transfer on the free plan.

V150

After your trial period is over, you’ll need to purchase a paid plan in order to keep receiving photos to your app. Photos will still be saved to the micro SD card on your device.

V150

The V150 model does not offer a video mode. Only photos can be saved to the memory card and sent to your account.

V100 and V200

Make sure to set your camera perfectly upright and facing north about 30 feet (10 meters) away from your target. We recommend installing the camera out of reach. Make sure you have something in background to get a good reflection of the infrared light for night photos.

V150

Make sure there is nothing obstructing the lens of the camera or that it’s not dirty. We recommend placing the camera out of reach, in a sufficently elevated area, and at about 30ft (10 meters) away from your target to have a good field of view. Make sure to have something in background to get a good reflection of the infrared light for low light conditions or night photos.

V100 and V200

Winter temperatures adversely affect the performance of nickel–cadmium (NiCd)/nickel–metal (NiMH) batteries. Using lithium batteries will help keep the performance of your camera to its best. The use of a 12V direct current external power is also a good alternative.

V150

The V150 model comes with a Lithium battery pack (included in the box) that works well in hot and cold weather. The V150 also has a built in solar panel as an alternate power source. To maximise battery life, make sure to place the camera in an area that gets a good amount of sun light during the day (enough to cover at least 50% of the solar panel).

Users are now able to get HD versions of their most valuable photos upon request through the VOSKER App or the VOSKER web App*. Each plan has a limit of HD photos to download per month.
*except for the FREE plan

On the right top corner of each of your pictures you will find an HD icon. Click and your picture will start uploading.

View of the Mobile App:

It is possible to control the camera remotely. You can:

  • Change the camera settings. The changes will apply the next time the camera sends pictures.
  • Checking the camera’s operating time

Please note that resetting the V200 is done manually, directly via the camera screen. For the V100, you have to put a formatting file on the SD card (see reset procedure).

VOSKER SENSE is a tool that uses artificial intelligence, and enables you to easily differentiate a human or a vehicle in a photo. If you have enabled VOSKER SENSE, this option will separate your photos into three tabs on the application’s PHOTOS page.

Troubleshooting

V100 and V200

  1. Try to power the camera with brand new alkaline batteries, a lithium battery pack (if applicable), a 12V external battery or any 12V power source to find out if the problem is caused by a weak power source.
  2. Make sure you don’t use NiMh rechargeable batteries (AA) as they can only supply 1.2V. Alkaline batteries supply 1.5V. VOSKER cameras require at least 7V to work properly.
  3. If you can, measure your batteries’ voltage with a voltmeter. Over 1.35V each is good.
  4. Make sure that the battery contacts are touching properly (top right and left). If not, gently pry the metal plate to restore good contact.

V150

  1. Remove the battery pack, connect the camera directly to a power source via the provided microUSB cable and try turning it on.
  2. If the issue persists double check your power source and if you are using a third party microUSB cable, make sure it is meant for charging and not data transfer.
  3. Also try charging the battery pack seperately for 12-24 hrs and note if the light on the pack comes on as it charges. if there are no lights then the pack may be defective or damaged, however if the status light on the pack is green then it is fully chargd and can be re-inserted into the camera. Try turning on the camera and if still not working, contact us.
  • Detection problems can be the result of a bad installation. Optimal installation is as follows:
    – About 3 feet from the ground or at the subject’s height.
    – The camera should be installed between 25 and 35 feet from the targeted area, aiming parallel to the ground and the motion sensor sensitivity setting at about ¾.
    – It is also best to aim the camera to the North to avoid back lighting and false detection. Backlighting will cause bad picture quality and if sun rays directly hit the optic lens, it can damage the CMOS sensor.
    – The heat from sun rays can also cause false detection when hitting the motion sensor.
  • To make sure the camera is detecting correctly, place it in test mode and wave your hand in front of the sensor, the light on the front should blink every time the camera is triggered. If it does, then set the sensitivity dial at ¾ to the maximum and walk from side to side in front of the camera up to 50 feet away and again the light should blink every time the camera detects you.
  • Make sure that the operating schedule you programmed is correct (if applicable).
  • Verify the battery level.
  • In a dark room, make sure the infrared LEDs are flashing during the photo or video (if applicable).

Camera power

V100 and V200

  • Infrared LEDs consume a lot of energy. Batteries consume 10 times less during day time photos.
  • The VIDEO mode consumes more energy than the PHOTO mode.
  • Cold weather also influences the battery life. A 12 volt battery is the best for winter; lithium battery pack is also less affected by temperature than alkaline batteries.
  • The number of photos taken daily (day time and night time) influences battery life.

V150

  • Infrared LEDs consume a lot of energy. The camera consume less power during day time photos. A high volume of photo transmissions could also impact your battery life. Make sure to optimise your transfer setting for your needs, in the Vosker app.
  • Make sure the solar panel is clear of any obstructions. The cellualr signal strength can aso affect battery life, so if possible move the canera to a location with better signal strength
  1. Make sure you’re not using NiMh batteries, they don’t supply enough voltage.
  2. Make sure that the camera is not set to “Electricity Mode” when using AA batteries, lithium battery pack or a 12V external battery. ” Electricity Mode” should only be used with a 12V AC/DC power supply because the camera always stays awake and continuously consumes energy.

V150

Make sure the battery has been charged for 12 to 24 hours before use. Also to maximise battery life, make sure to take advantage of the solar panel by placing the camera in a location that gets enough sunlight to cover 50% of the panel.

V150

Your V150 will enter a deep sleep mode and stop taking and transmitting photos when the batteries are lower than 25%. However when placed in an area with enough sunlight, the solar panels will recharge the battery pack and once the battery is above 25% the camera will resume it’s function with no changes to your settings.

Note if you have quick access to your camera, you can always remove the battery pack and charge it externally with the provided cable if you want a faster recharge.

V100 and V200

  • AA alkaline batteries (non-rechargeable), 6 pcs.
  • VOSKER rechargeable lithium battery, #V-LIT-BC
  • VOSKER lithium battery, #V-LIT-B
  • 12V DC power supply

V150

  • VOSKER rechargeable Lithium battery pack (included), #V-LIT-B2
    microUSB cable
  • Solar Panel to keep the battery pack charged

V150

When turning on your V150, the camera will search for a signal and the “status light” will flash green.


It will continuously flash and will appear in one of the following three colors:

  • Red: no signal;
  • Orange: fair signal;
  • Green: good signal.

If you have no signal, move outside or get near a window and restart the camera a few times if need be to get all the information from the cell
network.

When the light found on the top right of the camera is flashing red “Delay light”, it is a 30-second countdown before the photo mode is activated.

When all the lights on the camera turn off, the camera is ready to use. The camera has now updated its status in the VOSKER app with its latest information. The camera is now ready to take pictures and transmit them to your VOSKER app.

V150

The following are compatible with your V150 Camera:

  • The security box, V-SBOX2,
  • The 10000 mAh lithium battery pack V-LIT-B2
