Camera Yandex SignalQ2
Installation instructions
In the figure on the left:
1. SignalQ2 camera.
2. DVR camera.
3. Power adapter.
4. Camera power cable.
5. Twin wire: red for connection to the fuse box through the fuse splitter, and black with a grounding tip.
The camera is connected to the vehicle’s power system via the cabin fuse box.
Make sure that the vehicle ignition is turned off completely before installation.
The location of the cabin fuse box, grounding points, and wiring may vary depending on the make, model, and generation of the vehicle. These instructions cover the most common variant.
Be sure to write down the serial number of the camera and the license plate number of the vehicle you are installing the camera in — you will need to enter this information in Fleetroom later.
You will need:
— a 5 A flat fuse;
— a splitter for this fuse;
— a slotted screwdriver, STK-01 press pliers (you might need crimp sleeves), pliers, fuse puller, ring wrenches for the grounding bolt;
— isopropyl alcohol is a must, adhesive tape primer may be helpful;
— plastic clips for mounting.
Step 1. Attach the splitter to the power adapter
The fuse box must be connected to the red wire of the power adapter.
To do this, connect the pins using the splitter crimp sleeve and STK-01 pressing tongs.
Step 2. Route the cable with the power adapter
First you need to prepare everything:
• Remove the inner cover of the fuse box. It is usually located on the front panel to the left of the steering wheel: under the cover or behind the door.
• Remove the driver’s door seal from the A-pillar and around the dash panel.
• Remove the side cover of the front panel by pushing down on the inner left side of the fuse box, then carefully pry off the cover with a slotted screwdriver through the created gap.
• Bend away the plastic cover of the left front pillar.
Now you can route the cable:
• Position the adapter near the fuse box and secure the cable and the adapter with plastic clips. Make sure that the cable does not come into contact with sharp metal edges of vehicle parts.
• Route the cable to the doorway and into the notch of the rubber seal.
• Place the cable in the niche behind the rack liner and route it out from under the liner at a height just above the top edge of the steering wheel.
If the front pillar is equipped with an airbag, route the cable so it won’t interfere with the airbag deployment.
Step 3. Connect the power adapter to the fuse box
To do this, use the backup slot, which is only powered when the ignition is turned on.
If you plug the camera into the backup slot which always has voltage, the battery will be drained when the ignition is off.
To connect:
• Find the backup slot on the fuse block — it should only be powered when the ignition is on.
• Remove the original fuse from the slot.
• Install the new 5 A fuse in the top slot of the splitter.
• Plug the removed fuse into the lower slot of the splitter — the furthest one from the wire.
• Place the splitter with two fuses in the correct slot on the fuse panel. The wire of the splitter must point upwards.
If there is still no power, try repositioning the splitter.
You can usually find a fuse slot diagram on the inside of the fuse box cover.
Step 4. Connect the ground to the vehicle body
The grounding bolt closest to the fuse box is usually under the front panel, to the left of the pedals.
• Unscrew or loosen the grounding bolt.
• Connect the half-round tip of the black wire of the adapter to the grounding bolt.
• Tighten the bolt firmly.
If other equipment is already grounded at this mounting point, the order of connection should be as follows:
1. Bolt head.
2. Tip of the camera power adapter.
3. Tips of other equipment.
If your SignalQ2 kit includes a DVR camera, first install it and then set up the main camera. Go straight to the appendix at the end of these instructions, and then go back to step 5.
Step 5. Set up the camera
Connect the camera to the power cable, turn on the ignition, and wait for an audio signal.
If the camera switched on before you turn on the ignition, it is connected to the fuse box slot, which is always powered up — this will drain the battery. In that case, go back to step 3 and change the slot to the one which has no voltage when the ignition is off.
How to set up the camera:
• Connect to the "SQ2_Serial Number" Wi-Fi network using your smartphone, tablet, or laptop. The password is 77777777.
Do not disconnect from this Wi-Fi network, even if you see a message saying that it’s not connected to the Internet — it’s supposed to be that way.
• Go to the activation page — enter http://signalq or in the address bar. You can also scan the QR code below. The login is admin, the password is 77777777.
• On the settings page, check if the camera is recording video and if the image is okay. Make sure that all camera functions and sensors are active.
Don’t press the "Complete setup" button yet: set the camera angle first.
Step 6. Set the camera angle
We recommend that you first fit the camera, and then attach it to the glass with adhesive tape or a suction cup. This way you can check exactly what the camera lens will capture.
If the camera has the wrong angle, it may record false events.
Right angle:
• the driver’s entire head is in the frame, and their torso is also visible;
• the lens is pointed directly at the driver;
• you can’t see the steering wheel at all.
Wrong setup:
• you can see too much of the steering wheel or a tilted visor in the frame;
• the camera captures the driver from above;
• the camera is strongly shifted sideways or upwards.
Step 7. Mount the camera on the windshield
After you connected and activated the camera and calibrated the angle, mount it on the windshield near the side pillar above the top edge of the steering wheel.
• Degrease the camera mounting point with alcohol and wait for 1–2 minutes until it dries completely. If necessary, treat the area with a primer. In this case, you will need to wait for 10 minutes until it dries.
If you mount the camera on a suction cup, you don’t need a primer, alcohol is enough.
• Press the foot of the camera against the windshield. There should be no air bubbles between the layer of adhesive and the glass.
• Make sure that the camera has the same angle as in step 6. If it doesn’t, press the button on the foot and adjust the angle of the camera or change the mounting point.
• Remove the protective film from the front of the camera.
Step 8. Complete setup
After you secured the camera to the glass, go back to the camera setup page and click "Complete setup".
You will then be prompted to change the password to connect to the camera. You can create your own password, but we recommend using IMEI — it will be filled in automatically. Enter 77777777 in the field with the old password.
If you experience any problems when turning on or activating the camera, stop the vehicle engine and check all wiring connections and the connection of the camera to the fuse box.
After that, turn on the ignition and try to reactivate the camera. If this doesn’t help, replace the power adapter, the cable, the camera, or all of the above.
Step 9. Reinstall the removed parts
Return first the front panel side cover and fuse box cover, and then the driver’s door rubber gasket and the front pillar trim to their places.
Step 10. Place information stickers
Warnings about recording in the cabin:
• Regular sticker: windshield, upper-right corner inside the cabin.
• Transparent sticker: glass of the rear right door, upper-right corner on the outside.
Stickers with general information:
• Small sticker: windshield pillar next to the camera.
• Large sticker: front panel, it should be visible from the driver’s seat.
Appendix. DVR camera installation and connection
(if included in the package)
The DVR camera should be mounted at the top of the windshield, to the right of the rear-view mirror, and connected to the main camera.
• Degrease the camera mounting place with alcohol and wait for 1–2 minutes. If necessary, treat the area with a primer and wait for another 10 minutes until it dries.
• Place adhesive tape on this spot, and then attach the DVR camera to it.
• Plug the supplied power cable into the camera until it clicks.
• Route the cable behind the headliner near the windshield, and pull it out next to the SignalQ2 main camera.
• Connect the cable to the SignalQ2 camera, also until it clicks. The socket is at the bottom.
• If the cable is loose, hide it behind the rack cover without twisting.
• There is a small knob on the body — use it to adjust the camera angle.
The image from the DVR camera is displayed on the SignalQ2 camera activation page (as in step 5). You can switch the image from the main camera to the DVR camera in the upper-right corner of the image window.
• Remove the protective film from the camera lens.
If there is no image from the DVR camera when the cable is connected and the camera is working, turn the ignition of the vehicle off and back on. 
To remove the power cable from the camera, take the pliers and pull the metal connector of the cable perpendicular to the camera. Don’t pull on the cable itself to avoid damaging it accidentally.
