8-2 Troubleshooting
Please don’t panic when you find that this IP camera is not working properly. Before
you send this IP camera back to us, you can do some simple checks to save your time:
Scenario
Solution
Can’t connect to IP Camera
1) Please check the IP address of IP Camera again.
2) Please make sure the network cable is correctly
connected to your local area network.
3) Please make sure power cable is correctly
connected to IP Camera.
4) Please make sure IP Camera is switched on (the
LED lights on IP Camera will be lit up).
No IP Camera found
1) ‘Auto search’ function only works on IP Cameras
located on local area network.
No image
1) If the place where IP camera is installed is too
dark, try to add some lights when possible.
2) Check if there’s anything covering the lens.
Image is fuzzy
1) Check the lens and make sure it’s clean. If it’s dirty,
use cloth with clean water to clean it, do not use
alcohol or other chemical-based solution.

8-3 Glossary
MJPG: Motion JPEG or M-JPEG is a digital video sequence that is made up of a series
of individual JPEG images. (JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group). The
quality of the image is guaranteed, regardless of movement because the captured video is
a series of separately compressed JPEG images that can be extracted individually. The
compression level can be adjusted to control image quality and file size.
MPEG4: is a video and audio compression technology found in many IP network camera
models. The MPEG4 compression standard aims to deliver superior image quality while
optimizing bandwidth.
H.264: H.264 is the latest compression technology that significantly reduces the file size
of high-quality video images. Offers higher video resolution than Motion JPEG or
MPEG-4 at the same bit rate and bandwidth, or the same quality video at a lower bit rate.
PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet): Is a network protocol for
encapsulating Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) frames inside Ethernet frames.
TCP / IP (Transmission Control Protocol/ Internet Protocol): TCP is used along with
the Internet Protocol (IP) to transmit data as packets between computers over the network.
TCP is a connection-oriented protocol, which means that a connection is established
between the two end-points and is maintained until the data has been successfully
exchanged between the communicating applications.
DDNS (Dynamic DNS): Used to create a fixed domain name for dynamic internet IP
address. A domain name is a meaningful and easy-to-remember name for an Internet
address. Normally used when the ISP has provided you with dynamic internet IP address
to access the camera remotely.
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol): SMTP is used for sending and receiving
e-mail. SMTP authentication is an extension of SMTP, whereby the client is required to
log into the mail server before or during the sending of email. It can be used to allow
134
DG-SC5800PI User Manual
legitimate users to send email while denying the service to unauthorized users, such as
spammers.
FTP (File Transfer Protocol): FTP is an application protocol that uses the TCP/IP
protocols, used to exchange files between computers/devices on networks. Network
cameras with embedded operating systems use FTP to send camera images to an
authorized user’s computer or web site.
UPnP (Universal Plug & Play): A set of computer network protocols that allow the
automatic peer-to-peer detection of devices on the network. Allows the discovery of
UPnP- enabled devices in a network environment.
RTSP (Real Time Streaming protocol): RTSP is a control protocol for Internet
streaming of audio and video. Mostly used for remote viewing of live or stored security
camera video over the Internet. RTSP can be considered as a “remote control” for
controlling the media stream delivered by a media server. RTSP servers typically use RTP
as the protocol for the actual transport of audio/video data.
CMOS Sensor (Complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor): Is an image sensor
available in many IP network cameras with less circuitry hence consumes less power,
produces higher frame rate & is less costly as compared to CCD sensors.
IR LED (Infrared LED): Infrared radiation is radiation at a longer wavelength than
visible light, which means it cannot be seen by the naked eye. These cameras are well
suited for surveillance of low light areas or areas with no light at all. Infrared LED's
surround the lens and shine infrared light, illuminating the scene.
Pan/Tilt: IP cameras with panning capabilities can move back and forth horizontally in
order to monitor wider areas. In many cases a camera's panning functionality can be
controlled remotely from network PC using video management software. Tilt refers to an
IP camera's ability to be directed up and down in a vertical plane. The camera lens can be
aimed at a specific part of a scene, and in many cases the tilt can be controlled remotely.

Frame Rate: The frame rate is used to describe the frequency at which a video stream is
updated is measured in frames per second (fps). If you want more accurate video then the
frame rate should be kept high. Lower the frame rate, lesser the image details.
Gain Control: When camera produces a quality picture, it needs a sufficient amount of
light to produce a minimum stable picture, in case the light condition reduces to a certain
level, there is insufficient light to the camera to create a quality video picture. AGC
(Automatic gain control) increases the amount of amplification in these conditions to
bring the video signal up to the minimum required level. Besides increasing picture
signal, AGC also helps to reduce noise and picture attenuation.
Daylight saving time (DST): It is practiced especially in countries such as Australia,
Canada and the United States to save energy because it refers to a time for saving daylight
during the summertime so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less.
Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted
backward in autumn.
QoS & IP filtering: Quality of service plays an important role while viewing video over
the data network, this IP camera supports QoS parameters which can help prioritize the
video traffic along with the managed switches/ routers in the network to ensure best
delivery of the video when running multiple applications over IP network. The IP camera
can either white list or blacklist an IP address. This restricts unauthorized access to the IP
camera.
Infrared (IR) cut-off filters: They are used with color CCD or CMOS imagers to
produce accurate color images. An IR cut-off filter blocks the transmission of the infrared
while passing the visible. This can be done with two optical techniques: absorption or
reflection. Absorptive filters are made with special optical glass that absorbs near infrared
radiation. Reflection type filters are short-pass interference filters that reflect infrared
light with high efficiency.

Day/Night function
DG-SC5800PI has an array of IR LEDs for better visibility under no light
environment. If the environment light is not sufficient enough to view the camera then
the IR LEDs are triggered automatically for better visibility.
Weatherproof enclosure
The IP camera enclosure complies with IP66 standard thus protecting it from dust and
direct sprays from all directions (limited ingress permitted). The enclosure of the IP
camera has a Fan and Heater arrangement to withstand extreme weather environment.
