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.
1. Audio In
Cable of the audio input device should connect to audio in and GND pin of the cable slot and audio input device is activated according to the web-viewer.
2. Audio Out
Cable of the audio output device should connect to audio out and GND pin of the cable slot. Audio volume is controlled according to the web-viewer.
3. Alarm Out
It connects to the alarm lights, siren or lamps and the sensor types are normal open and normal close. Cable of the alarm output device should connect to alarm out+ and alarm out- of the cable slot.
4. Alarm In
Cable of the sensor/alarm input device should connect to alarm in+ and alarm in- of the cable slot.
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 192.168.1.11 and subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 (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 - http://192.168.1.20 (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
If you have a dynamic address provided by your ISP
