Inserting/Removing SD Memory Card

The memory card is an external data storage device that has been developed to offer an entirely new way to record and share video, audio, and text data using digital devices.

Inserting an SD Card to camera

Step 1: Inserting a SD Memory Card

Insert the SD card in the arrow direction.

  •  Don’t insert the SD memory card while it’s upside down by force. Otherwise, it may damage the SD memory card.
  •  Use the tweezers when inserting or picking out the SD card.

Step 2: Removing an SD Memory Card

Removing an SD Memory Card Gently press down on the exposed end of the memory card as shown in the diagram to eject the memory card from the slot. 

  • Pressing too hard on the SD memory card can cause the card to shoot out uncontrollably from the slot when released.
  • If you have saved data in the SD memory card, removing the SD memory card prior to setting record to OFF will cause damage to the data stored in the card.


Use a PoE-enabled switch to connect data and power through a single cable and begin viewing and recording images instantly. A non-PoE switch will require an adaptor for power transmission. 

1. Using a PoE-Enabled Switch

 The Camera is PoE-compliant, allowing transmission of power and data via a single Ethernet cable. PoE eliminates the need for the different cables used to power, record, or control the camera. Follow the illustration below to connect the camera to a PoE-enabled switch using an Ethernet cable.

2. Using a Non-PoE Switch

If a PoE-enabled switch is not used, use a power adapter for power transmission and non-PoE switch for data transmission. Follow the illustrations below to connect the camera without a PoE-enabled Switch.

Network setup - Quick Start of Network Connection

1. Connect the IP Camera to your PC’s Ethernet port via the supplied crossover cable. (It does not matter what end is used for the PC)

2. In order to communicate with the IP Camera, access to PC/laptop and configure the PC. Keep a record of TCP/IP properties of the PC. (IP address, subnet mask, gateway, DNS, etc.)

3. Change the IP address of the host PC to and subnet mask to (leave all other entries blank)

4. Connect the IP Camera to your PC’s Ethernet port via the supplied crossover cable. (It does not matter what end is used for the PC)

5. Power on the IP camera using the supplied power adapter

6. After 1 minute of power, verify a flashing ACTIVE indicator and a flashing or solid LINK indicator. After the corresponding indicator lights are properly displayed, open Internet Explorer

7. Type - (the default IP of the IP Camera) into your address bar.

8. Default ID/Password to access IP Camera are both the word: admin.

9. Locate the TCP/IP configuration under Setup. Supply the same ID and Password to enter Setup. (admin : admin)

10. Select STATIC under ‘Network Type’ . You will select Dynamic only if you are connecting the IP Camera directly to your cable/DSL/Broadband modem and your Internet Service Provider is supplying a dynamic address.

11. Configure the IP Camera’s TCP/IP settings as you normally do any other PCs on your network by providing a proper IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS server.

12. The IP Camera utilizes five TCP ports - a Web Port, a Video Port, a Control Server Port, Audio ports. A Web Port is to utilize Internet Explorer, a Video Server port is to support the streaming video, a Control Control Port is to transmit to control commands and Audio Ports are to transmit and receive Audio data. If the IP Camera will be directly attached to a cable/DSL/Broadband modem or it has been assigned a static IP from your ISP, then leave the default port settings. If you are installing the IP Camera on a network, you must define a Web Port other than 80. The other ports, a Video Port, a Control Port, Audio Ports can remain unchanged.

13. If the IP Camera is connected to a network which utilizes a router, you must have Port Forwarding configured on your personal router to forward all ports to the IP address you have assigned the IP Camera.

14. After configuring Port Forwarding on your router (if necessary), you may access your IP Camera on your local network by opening Internet Explorer and specifying the IP address and Web Port that you have assigned to the IP Camera.

15. Access your IP Camera via the Internet :

If you use a static IP address assigned by your ISP

  •  1) Open Internet Explorer.
  •  2) Type the IP of the IP Camera.
  •  3) If you use a router, type the routers’ static IP and the web port number of the IP Camera.

If you have a dynamic address provided by your ISP

  •  1) Open Internet Explorer and visit the DDNS website.
  •  2) Register the IP Camera.
  •  3) Reboot the IP Camera.
  •  4) Give the DDNS server 10 minutes to locate your IP Camera’s
