Installation Tips and Troubleshooting

WPS Camera Video Test Port
The Wirepath™ Surveillance WPS-300-BUL-A bullet camera include a Video Test Port to test and setup cameras using our WPS-CCTV –TESTER. This feature provides quick connection to Wirepath Bullet cameras for testing and setup without the need to disconnect the camera from the system. A BNC adapter is supplied with all 300 Wirepath Bullet cameras.

Connecting to the Camera
  1. Remove the lens cap
  2. Remove the Silica pack from the camera housing located inside the lens cap and place aside. You will need to replace this pack once the installation is complete.
  3. Locate the small black 2-pin connector inside the camera.
  4. Connect the small plug end of the BNC adapter to the black
    2-pin connector.
  5. Using the BNC cable supplied with the WPS-CCTV-TESTER,
    connect the BNC adapter the WPS-CCTV-TESTER Video In.
  6. Perform the needed tests and setup on the camera.
  7. Disconnect the BNC adapter from the camera, replace the
    Silica pack removed in step1 and reattach the lens cap.

Varifocal Settings
The mechanics of how the zoom operates will allow you to adjust the setting slightly past the limits causing the image to be out of focus. If you experience this during installation, simply move the zoom lever slightly away from the minimum or maximum position, then use the focus lever to bring it into focus. The specs for the camera’s varifocal lens are considered in the setup procedure, therefore there is no loss in the camera’s wide angle or telephoto abilities.

  1. I need to install your camera outside. What is the lowest temperature they are tested to?
    Our standard outdoor cameras have been tested to be fully operational form 14°F to 140°F. For extreme cold environments down to -40°F, consider our flagship 750 series outdoor analog cameras, which feature a built-in heater to ensure sub zero temperature reliability.

Installation & Setup

  1. I installed a camera near a garage door opener and I am now experiencing issues with the opener. What can I do?
    We have heard from a few dealers that have experienced interference with certain garage doors. Click here to see more details on the issue.
  2. I am trying to power my Wirepath analog camera with my CCTV tester for setup, but it only clicks or doesn’t do anything. What’s up?
    When using the test adapter for camera setup, the camera must be powered only by the CCTV Tester. Using other power supplies while using the test port may not work and may cause damage to the camera, which is not covered under warranty.


  1. My camera does not power on after being connected to a power supply.
    Check the power supply voltage and the wiring polarity. WPS-100, -300, and 350 series cameras only accept 12 Volt DC with the correct polarity. The + and - wires must not be reversed on the camera power input when power is applied.

Wiring & Connections

  1. How long of a wire can I connect to power my cameras?
    General calculations can be made using the voltage drop calculator tool on our website. This is located under the support tab of each camera item page.
