Make a reservation in the equipment calendar. Use the Booking System -> Equipment calendar menu item.
Go to Ronny, borrow the surveillance camera.
Put the camera on a table and aim it at whatever it is that you want to observe. Connect the power adapter to a power outlet. There is no need to connect an ethernet cable.
