Pole Camera Mini Getting Started Guide

Unboxing System

All systems come in very carefully packed boxes. Make sure you keep these boxes so that they can be transported safely.

1. When the box arrives it will have a label on the top. Before opening box follow the instructions on the label.

If any damage is found externally or internally, contact support immediately at 888-621-5558 or

2. Cut open the box and take the two foam pieces out

There are now two important items in the box. The cords and the DPM. Put the cords to the side, the focus will be the DPM right now.

3. Take the DPM out of the box.

4. The DPM is covered in a blue protective tape. There is a label on this tape that gives an initial setup guide. Cut along the door frame so the knife has room to cut through. Peel back the protective tape.

5. Make sure to get the key fob package out of the back bracket beneath the blue tape

6. Unlock the front window key latch and open the window

7. Take the protective foam out. Sometimes the camera will have to come out first. In order to learn how to do this go here

8. Close the front window and lock the key latch
