Features and Benefits
This is a cutting-edge digital video surveillance camera. It can compress and transmit real time
images with outstanding image quality through a standard TCP/IP network. This camera is
your best choice to build an intelligent IP surveillance system.
H.264 High Profile/MJPEG Multi-Codec Dual Streaming
This device supports 2 compression formats, H.264 High Profile and MJPEG. It brings superior
image quality at 30 frames per second up to a resolution of 720p (1280 x 720) pixels and VGA
(640 x 480) pixels.
Built-in Hardware Motion Detection
No more external motion sensors are required. You may assign up to 3 video motion detection
areas. By tuning the object size and sensitivity, it will reliably detect objects passing though is
view. Hardware motion detection also offers better sensitivity and faster response time than
software motion detection.
Powerful Bundled Surveillance Software
To extend the capabilities of the IP Camera series, a powerful surveillance program is included
in the package for free. Users can easily use an existing PC as a digital video recorder.
Scheduled recording and manual recording keep every important video recorded in the local
hard disk. Reliable and accurate motion detection with instant warning enables immediate
response in every condition. Quick and simple search and playback function lets you easily find
the images and video you want.
Software Development Kit Support
This IP Camera can be integrated or controlled by applications from third party software
developers. Software developers can save considerable efforts by using our Streaming Library
or ActiveX control. Please contact us for details on integration support.

2. Accessing Camera
If you have DHCP server / router in your network:
Many network server / routers are able to automatically provide IP addresses through DHCP. If
you are using such a network, just plug in your computer and IP Camera into the network and
your IP device will acquire network address by itself. Find and access the device with our IP
Utility program. You may download it at:
http://www.acti.com/product/detail/Software/ACTi_Utility_Suite
If you do NOT have DHCP server / router in your
network:
1. Configure your PC to use the same subnet by changing your PC’s IP address to the
subnet with prefix 192.168.0.XXX. The last number should be anything from 1 to 254
except 100 and other occupied IP addresses. Subnet mask should be 255.555.255.0.
2. The default IP used by this device is 192.168.0.100. Please make sure your PC is
NOT using this address and that no two equipments use the same IP address in
the network.
3. Change your IP address by going to Control Panel ->Manage Network Connections ->
Right click on the connection to change -> Option -> TCP/IP IPv4 Properties.

6. After logging in, you will see the video from camera. To go to the main menu, click the
“Setup” button on the top left.
If you are using a single camera, this is enough to access the device.
If you are using multiple devices, you need to change the current device to another
unused IP address, so that when the next device is connected to the network, no two
devices use the same IP. Please perform the following steps.
7. Go to IP Settings -> Connection Type
8. Change the IP mode to Static.
9. Change the IP to 192.168.0.101 or any other unused IPs. Do NOT use the PC’s IP
address or 192.168.0.100.). If this is not the first device you add to the network, please
also avoid other devices’ IPs.
