Getting Started
Install and wire the AutoDome according to the Bosch AutoDome Modular Camera System Installation Manual. A typical system includes a keyboard, matrix switcher, monitor, and appropriate wiring connections. Please refer to the individual product manuals for complete installation and setup instructions for each of the system components.

Powering On
When you turn the AutoDome power on there is a ten (10) second pause before the dome starts its homing phase. During the homing phase the camera pans left and right and tilts up and down. It also adjusts the lens focus. The entire homing phase lasts approximately 40 seconds and ends with a splash screen.

Establishing AutoDome Control
The most common ways to interface with the AutoDome are: – Using a keyboard and on-screen display (OSD) menus. This method is the most common
and is covered in this manual. – Using the AutoDome Configuration Tool software running on a PC with Bilinx or the RS-
232/485 communication protocol. Refer to the CTFID User Guide for instructions. – Using a PC-based graphical user interface (GUI) such as the Bosch DiBos 8 software.
Refer to the DiBos 8 User Guide for instructions. – Using the Bosch IP Web interface included with the IP Communications Module.

Keyboard Commands
Keyboard control commands are composed of a sequence of three (3) inputs with the following convention: 1) a Function key + 2) a Command number key(s) + 3) the Enter key. – Depending on the type of keyboard, the control function keys are labeled:
ON or AUX ON OFF or AUX OFF SET or SET SHOT SHOT or SHOW SHOT
NOTICE! The convention used for control key commands in this manual is ON, OFF, SET, and SHOT. Refer to your keyboard manual for the key naming conventions.

– Command numbers range from 1 to 999. See Chapter 6: Keyboard Commands by Number for a complete list of keyboard commands.

Setting the Camera Address
Once the AutoDome power is turned on and homing is complete, you must set the camera address. You may also want to assign a password and customize some of the AutoDome default settings.

FastAddress
FastAddress is an AutoDome feature that allows you to set or change a camera address using the keyboard and on-screen menus. There are three (3) FastAddress commands: – ON-999-ENTER: Displays and programs all cameras without an address in the system.

– ON-998-ENTER: Displays and programs all cameras with or without an address in the system.
– ON-997-ENTER: Displays the current address status of all cameras in the system simultaneously.
To set an address to a camera without an address: 1. Select the camera number you want to FastAddress. The system displays the camera
number on the keyboard and the image on the corresponding monitor. 2. Press #-ENTER (where # is the camera number without an address). 3. Press ON-999-ENTER to invoke an on-screen display of cameras on the system without an
address.
