How to use wireless camera receivers

Updated July 19, 2017

A wireless camera receiver receives all video input from your wireless video camera and allows you to view the video from your computer or TV monitor. Before you can use the wireless camera receiver, however, you have to make sure that the wireless camera as well as the receiver itself is properly installed and configured.

Connect the wireless camera receiver into a USB port in your computer. When the computer recognises the device, you will be asked to insert the installation disc that comes with the device. Do so and follow the installation instructions on your screen to install the wireless camera receiver device driver. Reboot the computer.

Check if the driver was installed correctly. Click "Start" and type "device manager" in the search box. Click "Device Manager" among the list of options that appear.

Click the arrow button beside "Sound, video and game controllers" and see if the name of the wireless camera receiver you just installed is included in the list. If it is not included or if the name has a yellow question mark beside it, you will need to uninstall the driver and repeat the driver installation.

Run the wireless camera receiver software to start seeing the video inputs in your computer.

Tip

Installation instructions may vary depending on the kind and brand of wireless camera receiver you are using. Refer to the manual of the device for specific installation instructions.
