Precautions on Using Wi-Fi

Cautions on Wi-Fi Function

Operation is not guaranteed on all devices.

This function is not designed for disaster or crime prevention.

To prevent the situation of forgetting to turn off the power, this unit will turn off automatically after 10 days of continuous usage.

Security of Wireless LAN
An advantage of wireless LAN is that instead of using a LAN cable, it transmits information using radio waves, thus enabling LAN connection to be established within the area covered by the radio waves. However, as radio waves penetrate through objects (such as walls) within the range that they cover, security issues, such as interception of transmission or illegal access, may arise if security settings are not configured.
Before you connect to the network in a wireless LAN environment, read through the instruction manual for the wireless LAN device in use, and configure the security settings accordingly. Failure to do so may increase the risk of personal information being intercepted, such as user names, passwords, and the content of your mails, or illegal access to the network.

Due to the design of wireless LAN, note that security may be breached by unusual or unforeseeable means.

For more details on wireless LAN and network security, please consult the manufacturer of your wireless LAN device.

JVC shall not be liable for any security issues, troubles, damages or losses arising from the use of this feature.

Although a radio station license is not required for using this product, please take note of the following.

Do not use this product near the following places.

Industrial, scientific, or medical equipment, such as microwave ovens and pacemakers

Industrial, scientific, or medical equipment, such as microwave ovens and pacemakers

Specified low-power radio stations (radio station license not required)

Bluetooth devices

Equipment such as the above mentioned devices makes use of the same frequency bandwidth as that of Wi-Fi.
Using this product near the above equipment may cause radio wave interference, and result in communication failure or a drop in communication speed. In this case, turn off the power of devices that are not in use.

Avoid using this product near a TV or radio set.

TV or radio sets make use of a radio wave frequency bandwidth that is different from that of Wi-Fi, and therefore has no effect on communication by this product or the TV/radio set.
However, when a TV/radio set is placed close to a Wi-Fi product, electromagnetic waves emitted by the Wi-Fi product may cause noise to occur in the sound or images of the TV/radio.

Communication may not be carried out properly near radio equipment or broadcasting stations. In this case, change the location accordingly.

Radio signals are unable to penetrate through reinforced steel, metal, or concrete.

The radio waves used by this product are unable to penetrate through reinforced steel, metal, or concrete materials.
It may difficult for communication to be established if two rooms or floors are separated by these materials.
*Communication may also get weaker when there are human subjects or parts of the body in between the Wi-Fi devices.

Do not connect to wireless networks that you do not have authorization for.

Once connected, it may be considered as unauthorized access and legal actions can be taken against you.

Do not use the Wi-Fi function outside the country of purchase.

Depending on the country, there may be restrictions on the use of radio waves and any violations could be punishable by law.

Exporting/Bringing the Unit Overseas

Permission from the U.S. government may be required when bringing the unit to an export controlled country set by the U.S. government (such as Cuba, Iraq, North Korea, Iran, Rwanda, and Syria. As of December, 2012).
