Most majority IP cameras have built-in Micro-SD card slot for on-board snapshot/video storage. Some of them even allow user to access files in SD card remotely. In this article, we aim to provide you procedures on how to access files in SD card on IP camera through Windows Explorer or IE browser.
Users are able to access the files in SD card via FTP service by Windows Explorer or IE browser, no need to remove off the SD card to access files on a computer. Prepare a Windows®-based personal computer and connect network cable to camera’s LAN port.
Turn on computer and open Windows Explorer for accessing the ftp server.
Enter the FTP address (ftp://192.168.1.30 by default) in the URL field of the explorer.
Then an FTP login window shows up asking for login ID and password, defaults are admin and 1234.
After filling in the login ID and password fields, you will see the FTP directory.
Besides, users can also just launch the IE browser to access SD card. In the same way, enter the FTP address (ftp://192.168.1.30 by default) in the address field. After finishing the login process, you will see the FTP directory.
Edge storage or on-board storage means the video recording at the edge of the Ethernet network as opposed to transmit the data across the network. The edge storage is able to provide three main benefits; decentralized storage, redundancy, and low bandwidth. This is the reason why it's widely used in many IP cameras. Edge storage function enables camera to record video directly to a storage device such as an SD/SDHC card inserted into the camera. Additionally, it can store the snapshot either captured by motion detection or user's operation.
