This is found in our user manual on page 18. THIS STEP IS ONLY A FUNCTION OF THE 3G M.I.N.E.™ CAMERA. THE 3G I.C.E.™ CAMERA DOES NOT UTILIZE AN INTERNAL TRANSMITTER.
The 3G M.I.N.E. Camera has an internal transmitter on the circuit board and must be located within 50 meters of the M.I.N.E.™ Gate to operate correctly. Users must manually calibrate the camera transmitter signal to each control box receiver the first time they are paired together. One camera will operate multiple control box receivers to trigger multiple gates simultaneously at a trap enclosure.
