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.

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).

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.

V100

  1. Download the reset file here
  2. Put the file on the SD card
  3. Once the file has been copied, put the SD card back into the V100 and turn it on.
  4. Wait about 5 minutes for the camera to update and reset.
  5. Your camera is now up to date

V200

  1. Turn on the camera
  2. On the screen, go to CONFIGURATION
  3. Then select GENERAL
  4. Click “Factory Reset” at the bottom of the second page.
  5. Press “Ok”.
  6. Your camera is up to date

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 off without external battery or power of any kind. 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.

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.

Technical specifications

The image below shows the differences in network coverage for each camera models (United States).

  • ​Photos or Videos on SD card (Camera): 1920×1080 (Full HD)
  • Photos on the App: 600×338

The motion sensor, which is located at the bottom of the camera, picks up motion up to 100 feet or 30.5 meters, and within a 45-degree angle.

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.

SD card:

The formats of SD cards compatible with our cameras are from 2GB up to 32GB (SD/SDHC, class 10). We provide a free 8GB SD card with the purchase of a camera. When the SD card is at full capacity, the camera automatically erases the first photo / video taken on the SD card and replaces it with the last photo / video take. BE CAREFUL, your photos are never lost. Those erased on the SD card remain available in the VOSKER application onto the cloud system.

Format the SD card

You can control how often the camera takes pictures by setting the camera to “interval” mode. You can then change the picture-taking frequency.

As soon as your camera is activated, VOSKER offers you a cell phone plan with unlimited photos and alerts for the first 30 days. Once this period is over, your camera will automatically switch to our free plan. It will be possible for you to choose a monthly or annual plan depending on your usage.

Our cameras are functional from -40°C to 40°C.

Canada: Our SIM cards work on all major cellular networks in the country.

United States: We have two cellular network options for the United States. There’s the Verizon network and the AT&T network.

Please note that your cell phone network does not have to be the same as your camera network to be able to receive photos to your mobile application.

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

Technical problem solving

  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.
  • 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

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