COOLIFE H881 Trail Camera


Information mankhwala


The trail camera is designed for hunting, animal or event observation, motion-triggered security camera for home, office, and community, and all other indoor/outdoor surveillance where evidence of invasion is needed. The working principle of the trail camera is that the infrared sensor triggers to take photos when the heating body (animal, etc.) enters the infrared sensing area of the trail camera. The sensing module of the trail camera starts the camera to complete the capture, thereby obtaining photos and videos. If the heating body (animal, etc.) leaves the infrared sensing area, the trail camera is in a dormant standby state.

Trail camera working principle
The working principle of the trail camera is that the infrared sensor triggers to take photos. In fact, when the heating body (animal, etc.) enters the infrared sensing area of the trail camera, the sensing module of the trail camera will start the camera to complete the capture, thereby obtaining photos and videos. If the heating body (animal, etc.) leaves the infrared sensing area, the trail camera is in a dormant standby state, for example, the trail camera starts to capture again when it enters the infrared sensing area again.


  • Trail camera for hunting
  • Animal or event observation Motion-triggered security camera, for home, office and community
  • All other indoor/outdoor surveillance where invasion evidence needed


  • The H881 hunting camera uses IR LEDs with a wavelength of 850nm, which emits a faint red light at night. But most animals cannot see this infrared light and will not interfere with the animals.
  • When the ambient light source is unstable, the filter inside the camera will be triggered to work, and then there will be a clicking sound accompanied by screen flickering, which is normal.
  • It is recommended to use high-performance alkaline batteries, which can prolong the use time of the camera. It is not recommended to use a 1.2V rechargeable battery, because the working voltage of the hunting camera is 1.5V. If the battery voltage is insufficient, it will not properly work, and the battery may be exhausted after working for few hours (the camera will show that the battery is low).
  • When using the hunting camera for the first time, please format the memory card before using.
  • When installing the battery, please make sure to install the battery normally, if the battery is installed upside down, it will cause the camera to short circuit and burn out. Please note that the camera is not protected by the short circuit!
  • When using the product for the first time, please remove the layer of protective film on the lens and on the sensor of the product.
  • Do not damage the surface of the product sensor, if there is any scratch or damage, it will affect the normal triggering of the camera.
  • Field installation: please make sure that the buckle of the camera and the bottom DC plug are all closed and sealed, otherwise the camera could be damaged in case of rain.
  • Do not use the mini USB data cable to charge the camera or charge the rechargeable battery, it will seriously damage the camera.
  • Please keep the camera lens and infrared sensing windows clean. If dirty, clean with the soft glasses cloth.
  • For keeping the good waterproof and dustproof properties, please keep the battery compartment sealing ring clean.
  • Do not touch the LCD display screen, camera lens, infrared sensing windows and IR led glasses with hands or any sharp objects.
  • In case of low battery charge, please replace all the batteries on time to avoid leakage of the electrolyte that could damage the camera.

 Install the camera properly


Please refer to the above installation diagram to determine the correct installation angle, install the hunting camera as horizontally as possible, and do not install it downwards, which will reduce the capture range of the camera and the shooting angle.


  • The correct installation distance should be at least one meter away from the subject, otherwise, it is easy to be vague.
  • Please make sure to install the hunting camera horizontally, otherwise, it may reduce the detection range of the camera.
  • The installation height is determined by the size of the shooting target or the distance, such as a small hedgehog, the shooting distance should be as short as possible, and the installation height should be as low as possible).
  • There should be no obvious obstructions (such as branches and leaves) in the front of the lens, and try to keep it as open as possible.
  • Try to confirm that there is no strong backlight at the front of the lens, otherwise, the quality of the photos and videos taken will be seriously reduced, and noise and blurring will occur.

Ntchito Yoyambira

Switch to “ON”,”TEST” and “OFF” mode
When the camera is in the “TEST” mode
The camera can set parameters, check the camera, manually shoot and view photos and videos, etc.

When the camera switch to “ON”
After having switched on the camera, the screen will display 15 seconds countdown. Then the LEDs and screen will be off. The camera begins to operate independently and enter in the standby mode.
If wild animals enter the detection range of the motion sensors, the camera will be activated and detect the motion trail.
If wild animals keep on moving in the detection zone of the sensor, the camera will take photos or record video automatically.
When wild animals leave the detection zone of the sensors, the camera will be deactivated and turn back in standby mode.

When the camera switch to “OFF” mode
The camera is completely turned off.

Adjust the best way of installation in Test mode
In test mode, you can work out the optimum exposure angle and the range of the motion sensors.
During alignment, consider whether the use of the side motion sensors may be useful for attaining the desired observation results. You can activate/deactivate the side motion sensors using the described menu.

Gwirizanitsani kamera motere:
Fasten the camera to a tree or similar object at a height of 1-2 meters and align the camera in the desired direction. Then move slowly from one side of the target area to the other side. While doing this, look at the motion display.
If you see a blue light , you have been detected by one of the activated side motion sensors. If you see a green light, you have been detected by the front motion sensor. In this way, you can work out the best alignment for the camera.
The motion display only lights up when the operating mode selector switch is in the TEST position and one of the motion sensors has detected movement. During normal operation, there will be no lights on.
To ensure that the camera does not make unwanted recordings of irrelevant movements, it should not be set up in a sunny location or close to branches that can move in the wind.
