Question

Does the camera have a 12-volt battery plug??

My cameras have a lot of activity and they burn through AA batteries quickly. I like to plug my cameras into a large 12-volt battery. Swap out the SD card and off you go.

Question

how to remove plastic film

I am unpacking from the box and as part of the set up I am supposed to remove the protective plastic film from the Pir motion detector on the front. I don't see the film. Do I need to remove the 3 screws from the inside to get at the protective film? Is the soft plastic 'bubble' on the outside supposed to be there?
