Generations of model railway enthusiasts have dreamed of it and thanks to ROCO's camera locomotives, those dreams have come true. On every journey you will see your model railway like you've never seen it before: from the train driver's perspective!
Functionality of your camera locomotive
Camera technology: The camera is installed behind the front screen on the models.
Integrated WLAN: Facilitates image transfer even at distances up to 25m.
This permits the following operating modes:
In this mode, it is possible to connect a WLAN-compatible device (e.g.: tablet, PC, smartphone) directly to the locomotive. This means the video data can be sent from the camera locomotive directly to the device.
This ensures operating function even if you have not yet installed a Z21 controller. All you then need to do is download the Z21 app onto your tablet or smartphone.
This is particularly suitable for Z21 users as in this mode it is possible to control the locomotive and view the live video stream simultaneously.
The locomotive connects to the Z21 router and sends the video images via to the router to the tablet or smartphone. The control commands from you are sent to the Z21 via the router. The latter sends the control commands to the locomotive via the rails.
The video below shows you step by step how to set up and configure your Videolok:
If you do not have a tablet or smartphone, it is also possible to connect to your WLAN-compatible Windows PC and even record the video.
The necessary instructions are given in the following video:
In order to guarantee the full range of features of your camera locomotive, we advise you to not perform a decoder update above version 37.0.
