Set up Hardware

Note: Make sure to remove the protective film from the camera prior to use.

  1. Insert the power connector into the power jack on the back of the device. Connect the USB power adapter to the other end of the cable, then plug the adapter into a power outlet.
  2. Connect one end of the USB data cable to the device and the other end to a USB 3.0 port on your PC.

Note: For best results, connect cables directly to the device and computer. Avoid extenders or additional adapters in connections.

  1. Verify the power indicator LED (next to the USB cable) is solid white.

It takes a few seconds for the device to power on. The device is ready for use when the streaming LED indicator on the front goes out.

For details on the power indicator LED, see Hardware Specifications.
