Jager Pro-Tip: How to pair or sync camera or onsite remote to control box

Do you need to pair or sync your control box, look no further. All Jager Pro M.I.N.E. cameras have internal transmitters. *Note: the max distance from gate to camera is 50 meters before you have problems and yes, one camera can operate multiple gates.

  1. Move camera selector switch from OFF to SETUP.
  2. Open control box housing and press the receiver button. The receiver red light will only emit for 10 to 15 seconds.
  3. Press the camera (A) left arrow and release then press the camera (B) right arrow and release to send a manual RF signal to the control box (You will see RF Trigger in the bottom of the screen). The receiver light should flash three times and shut off if performed correctly. Conduct a test by repeating this step, the latch will activate.

Repeat these steps on other control box receivers if multiple gates are used at the trap enclosure. Move camera selector switch from SETUP to ON and send SMS text command *777# to test transmitter and receiver calibration and gate operation.

To time, pair or sync your onsite remote. In the control box, press and release the button, the red light will come on. Press and hold for 2 seconds then release the button on your remote, the light will come on, simultaneously, the red light inside the control box will blink 3 times and go out. Conduct a test by pressing the button again, the latch will activate. If it does not work the first time, try again.

(THIS STEP IS ONLY A FUNCTION OF THE M.I.N.E.®, LIVE STREAM CAMERAS.)

The Live Stream Camera has an internal transmitter on the circuit board and must be located within 50 yards of the M.I.N.E.® Gate to operate correctly. Users must manually pair or sync camera transmitter signal to each control box receiver the first time they are linked together. It is not necessary to pair or sync camera transmitter to receiver more than one time. Pressing and holding the Pair to Transmit button for 8 seconds will clear out the memory.Live Streaming pair or sync

Pairing Steps:

  1. Press and release “frequency select” button (C) and red light (B) will flash either three times or five times. Press and release “frequency select” button (C) until red light (B) only flashes three times.
  2. Move camera selector switch from OFF to On.
  3. Press and release “pair to transmit” button (A) and red light (B) will illuminate for 15 seconds. Users only have 15 seconds to complete step 4 once step 3 has been initiated.
  4. Press and release camera “left arrow” (1) then press and release camera “right arrow” (2) to open the Radio Frequency (RF) page. A message will appear “Please press OK to trigger RF”. Press OK (3) and you will receive a message “RF Trigger…”, your camera should now be linked to the gate transmitter. Red receiver light (B) should flash five times then no longer illuminate.
  5. Ensure M.I.N.E.® Camera and receiver are paired. Press the OK (3) button while observing green light (D) illuminates. Test successful. Press menu to exit the RF page.

***Repeat these steps on other control box receivers if multiple gates are used at trap enclosure.

HELPFUL TIPS to PAIR or SYNC

Our camera is the transmitter and has it built inside the camera housing, it will broadcast the signal beyond 90 feet without an antenna. Generally, the trap diameter would be about 40 feet from one end to the other and if the camera is set up across from the gate you should have no problems sending or receiving the signal.

The control box has several different components, the receiver with the button and red light, the AU7 in the top right where all the connections lead to, the bridge in the middle and the blue actuator in the bottom that pulls the rod to close the gate. The actuator requires 11.5 volts or better to operate, anything less and it will not have enough power to drop the gate. 11.5 volts is important to remember since the red light will come on when the button is pushed and you can sync the gate with less than 11.5 volts, the receiver will still respond at less voltage and send the signal to drop the gate but the gate won’t drop due to the low voltage. If the red light doesn’t come on when the button is pushed, make sure the battery leads are hooked up and that the battery is fully charged with 12.5 volts or better. Sometimes during transport one of the leads can come loose, reach inside and gently tug on the wires going into the bridge, make sure none of them are loose. Make sure the antenna from the receiver is threaded properly outside of the box to receive the signal from the camera or onsite remote.

The receiver can manually clear out it’s memory by pressing and holding the button for 8 seconds, the red light will blink 4 times and go out, this lets you know that the memory is clear. This is also an important factor since you don’t want to press and hold the button while attempting to sync them. Once the syncing process is complete, it will retain the cameras transmitter code in its memory and will not need to be re-synced ever again (even after a year with no battery power hooked up to it). You still want to test it if the gate has been out of use by pressing and releasing the left and right arrows from the camera after everything is hooked back up.

Make sure you practice step 2 before going through the entire process and you shouldn’t have any problems syncing your camera to your control box. You can sync multiple control boxes to one camera and have a simultaneous drop of 2 or more gates. It’s also a good idea to maintain control of the onsite remote and use it for testing or dropping the gate when needed.
