For your safety

To prevent damage to your Q-See product or injury to yourself or to others, read and understand the following safety precautions in their entirety before installing or using this equipment.


nCare should be taken during transportation, storage and installation of this camera to avoid rough handling, dropping, or other abuse in order to prevent damage to the optics or components inside the camera.

nCamera should be installed in accordance with electrical standards including keeping the camera and cable away from high voltage, using a surge protector and using only the rated power supply.

nDo not use strong or abrasive cleaners on camera body or lens. Use a damp cloth for cleaning the housing and a lens cloth for the optics.

nDo not attempt to disassemble the camera. Only authorized, trained technicians should service this camera.

nCameras should not be immersed in water and should be mounted in a sheltered location. Do not point camera directly at the sun or other strong light source.

Product Features

These cameras offer the following features:

nUltra high definition video using 1/3” Sony CCD sensors coupled with the latest Sony Effio-E digital signal processors to produce 600 and 650 TV lines of resolution. Additionally, 650 TVL cameras conform to the wide-format 960H video standard.

nState-of-the-art IR cut filter to ensure accurate color representation during the day and sharper images at night.

nLow light and infrared operation. The camera takes advantage of even low levels of ambient lighting to produce images with color.

nAutomatically switches to infrared (black and white) mode when no light is detected.

nInfrared illumination (on select models)

nBuilt-in motion detection. The camera can be set to respond to motion even without being connected to a DVR.

nOn-Screen Display (OSD) allows you to configure the camera using the built-in thumbstick when connected to a monitor.

nMultiple language support; English, Spanish, French, Russian, Portuguese, German, Chinese and Japanese.

nCustomizable settings: WDR (wide dynamic range), White Balance, Contrast, Shutter Speed, Sharpness, etc.

nHighlight Compensation. Excessive light, such as headlights, can be masked if desired.

nSelect models have manually adjustable 2.8mm to 12mmm varifocal lens and focus.

nHigh-speed Moving Object Capture function allows clear images of objects moving at high speed.




When installing your camera, it is important to select a proper site not only for field of view, but for other considerations as well:

Distance from viewing/recording device. The further the camera is from the DVR or monitor, the higher the chances of signal degradation. Typical 75Ω Video Cable provides acceptable signal at distances up to 200’ (30m). At greater distances,

UL-Listed shielded RG59 should be used. The camera’s power supply should be located as near to the camera as possible when the distance exceeds 200’ as the power level will drop over extended distances resulting in a decrease in video quality and IR LED range.

Do not place near high voltage wires or other sources of electrical interference. Electrical interference will degrade the quality of the signal.

Place camera out of reach to avoid damage.

Avoid direct exposure to weather. Do not place the camera where rain or snow will hit the lens directly nor should the camera be placed so that the sun or bright light shines directly into the lens. Indoor cameras should never be placed outside. Weatherproof cameras will not work when submerged. Ensure that all power and video connections are not directly exposed to water and are protected from the elements.

Do not place camera behind a window. The IR LEDs act like a flashlight and will create a reflection that will obscure events on the other side of the glass.

Light levels should be approximately the same between camera and target area. A camera in a brightly-lit area looking into a shaded area, or vice versa, will produce inadequate results.


STEP 1. The mounting base on the dome cameras will need to be removed prior to installing the camera. The method for removing the base varies by the model

STEP 2. Once the base has been removed, position it where you want to mount the camera and use it as a template to mark where to drill the holes for the included mounting screws.

STEP 3. Remove base and drill out holes STEP 4. Insert plastic expanders into holes

STEP 5. Use included screws to mount base to surface. STEP 6. Attach camera to base.

Be careful not to leave fingerprints, dust or debris inside the camera’s dome!
