Steps to get MSM to work with the camera:
1. Once the Edgertronic quick start guide is completed the user should be able to browse to the camera’s IP address and the browser will look like:



2. The user should then plug the MSM in using a USB cable to one of the available USB slots in the Edgertronic camera. The browser will refresh and display the Pocket Radar Status box:



The status box has a thumbnail button that pins it to always keep it visible.
There is an Auto-Trigger ON/OFF switch on the Pocket Radar status box that allows the user to control when a speed captured by the radar will trigger a video recording. When set to “ON” a speed will trigger a new recording, when set to “OFF” a speed will not trigger a new recording.
The status box displays the current minimum speed allowed to trigger a video recording, and the maximum speed allowed to trigger a recording (configurable in settings).
The status box also displays the current radar setup (configurable/explained in settings).

3. If the user clicks the wrench icon on the Edgertronics status box it will take the user to settings. Clicking over to the Pocket Radar tab:



Minimum trigger speed is the minimum speed the radar will report to the camera and display on the LCD. This sets the lower speed limit for triggering a video recording.
Maximum trigger speed is the maximum speed the radar will report to the camera and display on the LCD. This sets the upper speed limit for triggering a video recording.
Setup defines where the radar is placed relative to the pitcher. Modes discussed in use cases.

Use cases:
Max Range – This setting allows the radar to measure baseballs up to 120 feet away. This setting will capture adjacent throws in a multiple throwing/hitting lane setup and if it is desired to avoid this, the following settings can be used:

In the case of multiple throwing lanes (minimum 6 feet apart), these setting can be used to minimize adjacent throws from falsely triggering the camera:
Behind pitcher –This setting is best used when the radar is placed approx. 6 feet behind a pitcher throwing towards a catcher/net away from the radar.
Behind catcher – This setting is best used when the radar is placed approx. 6 feet behind a catcher/net and the pitcher is an additional 60 feet away throwing towards the radar.

Custom – In the case that the user is provided special radar sensitivity parameters, this custom field allows the camera to read from a config file on the SD card.
