Congratulations on your purchase of the Bushnell® Digital Trail SentryCamera! This weatherproof, rugged trail camera is designed to record still images or movie clips of outdoor wildlife activity.This instruction manual will help you understand, setup, and use your Sentry to achieve the best possible results.

Bushnell Digital Trail Sentry Features

If you’ve been looking for a digital game scouting or surveillance camera that has all the essential features but without the unwanted frills, expense, or confusing operational menus of some less effective off-brand“gamecams”,the Bushnell Trail Sentry will end your search. With one of the most user friendly interfaces in the industry, this trail camera is easy to setup and use. The extra-widestrap ensures a secure mount to the tree, and a padlock loophole plus software password keeps outwould-bethieves. The high resolution digital camera delivers crisp views of game in your area and stamps each image with date & time. The Sentry can capture 2.1MP still images, or 14 second movie clips. All images, movies and events are recorded onto an SD card (not included) for convenient transfer to your home computer (or use the Bushnell11-9500CTrail Scout Viewer to view, copy and delete images in the field). The camera will function day and night and sense game out to 45 feet. The oversized incandescent flash will reach out to 15 feet for nighttime images. A new photo is taken every 30 seconds for as long as motion/heat events are detected. The LCD display makes set up a breeze in the field. The Trail Sentry is rugged and weatherproof.

QUICK GUIDE: BUSHNELL TRAIL SENTRY 11-9200

1.Open the camera by releasing the latches on the right side of the camera. Install 4 “D” cell batteries (flat base of all batteries contacting springs), and insert an SD card (not included, use any capacity from 16MB to 1GB) in the slot to the right of the 5 buttons (upside down, brand name facing you). Press the card down until you hear it click into place.

2.Press and release the Power switch. The display will show four “dashes”, then change to “HHHH” with a blinking key icon below it. This is a prompt to enter your password, which can be changed in the setup menu. The first time the camera is turned on, the password is the default, “0000”. Press the Enter button four times to enter four zeros, then press it again to confirm-thedisplay indicates “PASS” and the camera is ready to operate. If the wrong password is entered, the display will flash “ERRO” and the camera will not work.

3.If you are using the camera for the first time, you should set the date and time so your photos will be “stamped” correctly. Briefly press the Menu button-”DATE”will blink on the display. Press Enter to confirm you want to change the date, then the first two digits will flash, prompting you to enter the month. Use the Up/Down buttons to set the current month, then press Enter, and repeat to set the day of the month and press Enter again. The display will then change to let you set the year, with only the last two digits flashing (“20_ _”). Again use the Up/Down buttons to change the year if necessary, press enter, and set the time (“TIME” will flash, press enter and use Up/Down to set the hour and minute. The time display uses the 24 hr standard, so 2:00 PM is indicated as “1400”, etc).

4.After the date and time have been set, and Enter is pressed, “EVENT” will blink on the display. Press Enter and the “camera” icons for still photos and movie clips will both blink. This allows you to choose which type of file will be recorded every 30 seconds for as long as motion and heat events are detected. Press Enter again, and only the still photo icon will blink. Pressing the UP and DOWN buttons will now let you alternate between blinking movie camera and still photo icons. Select the photo

mode you prefer and press ENTER while that icon is blinking.

5.The “key” icon will blink next, press ENTER and enter any four digit password of your choice (to keep using the default “0000”, just press ENTER 4 times) by using the UP/DOWN buttons to change each digit and using ENTER to step to the next digit. When finished, press ENTER if you want to return to the date/time setup menu, or press and hold the MENU button at any time to exit all setup menus and return to normal operation.

6.In normal operating mode, the display will only show the still photo or movie clip icon in the lower left corner, an SD card icon on the lower right, and one or more digits that indicate how many photo or movie files have been stored on the card. To test the camera operation, wave your hand in front of the lens and PIR (passive infrared/motion) detector, while looking at the LCD display. Every time an “event” is detected, the display will indicate “Plr”, “EVNT”, “rECd” in turn, and the event is recorded on the SD card as a new line in a text file, including the date and time of the event. As long as events are being detected, a new still photo or movie clip (as set in the menu) will be recorded every 30 seconds, indicated on the display by “Plr”, “SnAP”, then “SAVE”. Note: for movie clips, the display will stay on “SnAP” for the 15 sec duration of each movie.

7.Thread the strap through the slots on the back of the Sentry and attach the buckles, then strap it onto a suitable tree, making sure the strap is tight and the camera is aimed at the area you wish to observe. Turn on the camera (make sure a new or empty SD card has been inserted) and leave the area-thereis a 60 second delay after power on before the first photo is taken. The flash will fire automatically at night for still photos, but not movies, so they will be dark unless the area is well lit by the moon or another light source. Batteries typically last 30 days or more, depending on how often the Sentry is activated, how often the flash fires, ambient temperature, etc..

8.Pressing the Up/Down buttons during normal operation will switch the display between showing # of photos stored and # of events recorded. To look at your captured photos, make sure the power is off, and remove the SD card by pushing down lightly on the top edge of the card-itwill pop up for removal. Use an SD card reader with any PC or Mac (or the Bushnell Trail Scout Viewer) to view, copy, or delete the photos (standard JPG files) and movies (AVI files) inside the “DCIM/100MEDIA” folder on the card. Double click on an individual file to see it, or open the files with the photo software of your choice. The event log is the

.TXT file, just double click to open and view with your default software for standard plain text files.

ABOUT THE PIR SENSOR

The sensor that triggers the trail camera is Passive Infra Red, or PIR. Infrared energy is essentially heat energy. The PIR detector operates by sensing a change in the infrared level in its detection zone. This zone is a cone in the center 10 degrees of the camera’s field of view. The camera establishes an average long-terminfrared level. When this level increased suddenly the PIR detector signals the camera to record a picture and/or an event. Because of this effect, the PIR detector will be more sensitive at night, when the average temperature is lower.

You can use the red LED indicator on the front of the camera to confirm the detection zone. When PIR is sensed, this “PIR detected” indicator will light. The camera’s field of view is a 45 degree cone, centered on the PIR detection zone.
