1-3 Highlights of the DDNS-Free Outdoor IP Camera
Thanks again for choosing this DDNS-Free Outdoor IP Camera. The IC-9000 is designed
with the User-friendly concept. You can install the IP Camera easily on your home network
and then access the IP Camera anywhere in the world with the video management utility.
No need to set complicated DNS name or change the router configuration. It just a plug &
play.
Besides, with the low light sensitive sensor and IR LEDs inside the IP66-rated water proof
housing, the IC-9000 can satisfy all security and indoor/outdoor surveillance needs even in
the dim environment or bad weather condition. What’s more, with the automatic ICR (IR
Cutter Remover), the infrared light is filtered out during the day time and is allowed to pass
during the night time. This ensures the video color quality is excellent compared with other
IP cameras.

2-2 Seeing the Video in a Remote Location
After the IC-9000 is installed and you can see the video from the CamView software in the
local network, it’s very easy to see the video in a remote location. All you need to do is add
a camera item in the “CameraList” 14folder of the CamView software, key in the ID and
Password of the IC-9000 (from the ID/Password card). And then double click this camera
item. You will then see the Camera video immediately. No further NAT/router setting
modifications are needed.
14
Chapter III Start Using Web Configuration Page
You can login into the web configuration page by directly key-in the IP address of the IP
CAM or right-click the searched IP CAM in the “Auto Search”15list of the CamView software
and click the “Web Configure” to open the login window of the IP CAM.
The default login account is “admin”, leave the Password field empty.
15
3-1 Information
The first page of the web configuration of the IP CAM is the information page. You can see
the model name/firmware version, IP CAM ID, registration status, network type and current
video settings (bandwidth & resolution) in this page.
The IP CAM can be viewed remotely by the CamView software only when the IP CAM is
registered. If this IP CAM is not registered, please check the Ethernet wiring of your
network environment. The “Network type” 16field displays the network connection (wired or
wireless) and method (DHCP, PPPoE or static ip) the IP CAM is running. The “Video users”
16field displays the number of connected video viewing users.
16
3-2 Video Display
This display page allows you to view the video display of the IP camera. For the first time
use of this display on a computer, an activeX component will be automatically downloaded
into the browser. This could take some time, depends on the internet speed. The
component is downloaded from a public domain, so that the computer must be connected
to the Internet.
If you want to modify the video display screen size, please refer to section 3-7 for more
details.
17
3-3 Network
The Network page allows you to modify the network settings of the wired Ethernet. The
default settings use DHCP to obtain an IP address automatically. In most of the home and
office network environment, there is a DHCP server running. In this situation, by using this
default settings, the IP CAM can work immediately in most of the time.
If the Ethernet cable is unplugged, the IP CAM will lose connection. But as soon as the
Ethernet cable is plugged in again, the IP CAM will obtain a new IP address immediately.
If the network environment does not support DHCP function, you will need to set the
network settings of the IP CAM manually. Please fill all the fields including “IP address”18,
“Subnet mask”, “Default gateway”18and “DNS server”18 to let the network work. All these
settings must be correct for your network environment, otherwise the IP CAM cannot work.
The default setting is “obtain an IP address automatically”.
18
19
3-4 Advanced Network
In some special situation, your network environment only provides PPPoE connection
(ADSL service), there is no NAT/router available. You will then need to set the PPPoE
settings in the “Advanced Network”20page. Only the PPPoE username and password are
needed to let PPPoE work. After the ”Save&Apply” button is pressed, the PPPoE function
will work immediately. You can check the ”Registration status” in the “Information” page to
see if the IP CAM is registered using the PPPoE connection.
Please be noticed that the DHCP or static IP settings in the “Network”20page can work
together with the PPPoE connection. Only that the PPPoE has higher priority, so, if the
PPPoE is working, the IP CAM will use PPPoE to connect to the Internet.
The default setting is ”Disable PPPoE”.
20
3-5 Video Settings
The IP CAM is designed to provide high quality video for viewing from CamView software.
In this page, you can modify some settings related to the video viewing:
1. Password (play video) - This is the password needed for viewing the video from the
CamView software. Together with the IP CAM ID, you can view the video of this IP CAM
anywhere in the world through the Internet.
2. Internet speed - This is the Internet bandwidth of your network environment. Higher
value will generate higher video quality. But if your internet connection cannot provide
more bandwidth than the specified value, the video quality could degrade. So, please
key in a value that is lower than your internet bandwidth.
3. Select resolution & frame rate automatically - You can let the system select the suitable
video resolution and frame rate automatically for you. The selection is based on the
“Internet speed” value. This is the recommended default setting.
4. Resolution - There are three choices: 160x120, 320x240 and 640x480. If you decide to
choose the value manually, you can choose one of the three values. But, please be
noticed that if the Internet speed is slow (low value), high resolution (640x480) or frame
rate could cause very bad video quality.
5. Frame rate - The video frame display rate. Higher value means faster movement and
continuity in the video display.
6. Favor/Preference - Choose between “Video motion” and “Image quality”. When the real
bandwidth is not enough for the selected “Internet speed”, the system will need to
degrade the video motion or image quality. This selection will decide if the user want to
maintain the “Video motion” or “Image quality” when the internet speed is not good
enough.
7. Brightness - The brightness of the video, lower value means darker display.
8. Sharpness - The sharpness of the video, higher value means sharper video.
9. Low light sensitivity - The low light sensitivity could be normal, high or very high. When
the low light sensitivity is high, the system could see better video clearance under low
light situation, but the moving object will not be very clear under this low light
environment. Under very dark environment, set to “very high” will get better video
21
clearance. The default value of this setting is “high”.
10. Video color - Choose between “colored” and “black&white”.
11. Outdoor/Indoor video - For better video display quality, modify this setting when taking
indoor or outdoor video. The default setting is “Outdoor video”, in most cases, this is
also ok for indoor usage. Under some special cases, there could be some strip lines on
the video display when the IP camera is taking indoor video. In this situation, change the
setting to “Indoor video” will solve the problem. Please also be noticed that in “Indoor
video” setting, the video display of outdoor view is very vague. For indoor usage, if there
is strong sun light into the room, please select the “Indoor+sun light” choice.
12. Enable/disable time display on video - If enabled, the date/time of the system will be
displayed on the left-upper corner of the video.
When this modification is “Save&Apply”, it works immediately, but all the connected
video viewing users will be disconnected.
22
3-6 3GPP/RTSP Settings
The IP CAM is able to be viewed from a 3G mobile phone, for detailed settings on the 3G
mobile phone, please refer to Appendix F.
Users can disable the 3G mobile access ability in this page. After the 3GPP/RTSP feature
is disabled, no 3G mobile phone is allowed to access the video of the IP camera. When this
is disabled, the rtsp stream with MPEG2 audio is still working, please refer to Appendix F
for more details about rtsp stream with MPEG2 audio.
When the 3GPP is enabled, the video frame rate, resolution and bandwidth for 3G mobile
access could be set independently from the video settings for CamView(PC) access. The
maximum allowed resolution is 352x255 and maximum allowed bandwidth is 256 kbps.
The “Access URL” line is the url address for 3G mobile phone to input for seeing the video
of the IP camera. Different 3G mobile may need to input this url in different way, detailed
information could be found in the user manual of different 3G mobiles. Please be noticed
that usually public IP address is needed for the IP camera, so that the 3G mobile could
access the IP camera’s video.
The default setting is “Enable 3GPP/RTSP”.
23
3-7 Night Mode Control
The IP Cam is able to work both in day time and night time. There are some IR LEDs that
can let the IP camera see the objects in the night time. Users can adjust the numbers of the
IR LEDs according to the view sight distance during night mode to get the best night mode
vision. The night mode status is also displayed.
This night mode control page is to control when the time the IR LEDs will be on. There are
three ways to control the night mode ( IR LEDs ) :
1. Automatic day and night mode switch: the IP cam will automatically turn on the IR LEDs
when the night time is arrived or the environment is becoming dark. There is a light
sensor on the IP cam that is doing this light detection.
2. Scheduled time of night mode: the IP Cam can also be scheduled to turn on the IR
LEDs in a time range of each day.
3. Manual night mode control: the IP Cam can be manually forced to night mode( IR LEDs
on ) or day mode( IR LEDs off ).
In order to get better video color display during day time and night time, there is an ICR(IR
Cutter Remover) in the IP Cam. This ICR will be controlled automatically to filter out the
IR(Infrared) light during the day time and allow the IR light to pass during the night time.
This make sure the video color quality is excellent compared to other IP camera.
24
3-8 Email/FTP Alarm
The IP CAM provides the Email/ftp function, you can enable or schedule the Email/ftp
ability in this page, the IP CAM will then send out an email with a jpeg picture attached in
the email and/or send out the jpeg picture file to a ftp server. The related settings are
explained below:
1. Email/FTP trigger – choose between “motion”, “D/I”, “schedule” and “disable”
A.
B.
If “motion” is selected, it means that when there is a motion detected, the system
will send out the email and/or ftp with the captured video snapshot.
If “D/I” is selected, it means that when there is a Digital input alarm detected, the
system will send out the email and/or ftp with the captured video snapshot. If the
D/I alarm is constantly on, the IP camera will keep sending out email/ftp message
every second for up to 30 seconds.
C.
D.
If “schedule” is selected, it means that the email/ftp alarm detection and triggering
will be scheduled by the “scheduling” in section 3.9.
“disable” will disable the email/ftp alarm.
2. Motion sensitivity – there are three possible choices in this field.
“High” means high sensitivity, i.e., the detection is triggered by a very small movement
in the video image. If “High” is selected and the size of the moving object is larger than
about 1% of the whole video area, it is detected. Please be noticed that the real size of
the object could be large or small, anyway, the detection is only based on the relative
size of the object. Probably a small pencil moving near the IP CAM could be detected,
but a moving car far away from the IP CAM could not be detected.
“Low” means low sensitivity, i.e., the detection is triggered by a very large movement. If
the size of the moving object is larger than about 10% of the whole video area, it is
detected. “Median” means 3% to trigger the detection.
3. Send email message – if this item is enabled, the IP CAM will send out an email
message with the jpeg picture attached to the specified email account.
4. Email recipient – this is the email address to receive the detection notice message. An
email message with the jpeg picture file named by the date/time of the triggered
moment will reach this address.
5. SMTP server – this is the SMTP server that will help to transfer the email message. This
server is irrelevant to the “Email recipient” address.
6. SMTP username/password – this is the account to use the SMTP server to transfer the
25
email message. The SMTP server and username/password account are only for
transfer the email message to the “Email recipient”, the “Email recipient” could be on
another email server or any reachable email address. The username and password
fields could be left empty if no authentication is needed for the SMTP server.
7. SMTP server test – after the settings are filled, you could press “SMTP server test” to
check if all the settings are correct.
8. Send FTP message – if this item is enabled, the IP CAM will send out a jpeg picture file
to the specified ftp account.
9. FTP server – this is the FTP server address to receive the jpeg file.
10. FTP username/password – this is the username/password to login into the FTP server,
so, this triggered jpeg file will be allowed to reach this FTP server.
11. Remote folder – the jpeg file will be put under this folder of the FTP server.
When this modification is “Save&Apply”ed, it works immediately, but all the connected
video viewing users will be disconnected.
The default setting is “Disable”.
26
3-9 DI/DO Settings
The IP camera provides DI alarm detection function. The related settings are explained
below:
1. Digital input – can select the normal status of the digital input as either open circuit or
closed circuit. The current status is also displayed. An active status could trigger the
email/ftp or the NAS/SD card recording by setting the scheduling.
27
3-10 NAS Settings
The IP Camera provides the recording of the video files into a standard NAS (Network
Access Storage) device. The IP camera connects to the NAS device using the standard
LMX_NS/CIFS/SSN protocols that are the same as the Microsoft Windows network
neighborhood protocols. This makes the IP camera easily record the video files to some of
the standard NAS devices* in the market. Since there are a lot of different choices,
including prices and scales, users can decide by themselves which is best for their needs.
By using this function, the standard NAS device is becoming a NVR (Network Video
Recorder) device.
Notice: when the IP camera is doing NAS recording, this is counted as one video user.
Please refer to appendix B about allowed maximum video users.
Notice: *For the NAS compatible list, please check www.edimax.com
1. If the “Always Recording” is selected, the system will start to record to the NAS storage
device immediately and keep recording always. If the “Schedule Recording” is selected,
the system will do the NAS recording according to the “scheduling” in section 3-11.
“Disable Recording” will disable this NAS recording.
2. When doing the NAS recording, the system will check the free disk space of the NAS
device. If the free disk space is less than the specified number, the system will do
“Circular recording” (overwrite the oldest recorded files of this ip camera in the NAS
device) or “Stop recording” as selected. If the “keep recorded video for xx days” is
selected, the system will do circular recording and over write the recorded video files
older than xx days ago.
3. The IP camera can connect to the NAS device by using the “NAS name” or “NAS IP
address”. If the NAS device and the IP camera are in the same local area network, the
IP camera can automatically locate and connect to the NAS device by the “NAS name”.
If the NAS device uses a fixed IP address (either in the local area network or in the
public internet), the IP camera can connect to it by the “NAS IP address”.
4. The “Shared folder name” is the folder in the NAS device that will record the video files
of the IP camera.
5. The “NAS access account” and “NAS access password” are the username and
password to login into the specified “Shared folder name” of the NAS device.
28
In the Microsoft Windows environment, you can access to the NAS device by keying the
URL address \\”NAS name”\”shared folder name” or \\”NAS IP address”\”shared folder
name” in the windows Internet Explorer, and then key in the “NAS access account” and
“NAS access password” to the prompted login window. The video files are recorded under
the subfolder IPCamRecordFiles/Recording/ID-ID, where ID is the ID of this IP camera. All
the recorded files are with the name of hhmmss.crf format, where hh is the hour, mm is the
minute, ss is the second of the starting time of the recording video. The files are segmented
every five minutes. Users can use the free bundled CamPlay software to play back the
video files.
29
3-11 Scheduling
The IP Camera provides the scheduling function for the motion detection triggered email/ftp
sending and/or the NAS recording with the individual parameters set in the . “Email/ftp
alarm” settings and the “NAS settings” page. Totally 12 schedule list items are allowed.
There is no conflict check for the scheduling, it means that the scheduling time could be
overlapped, and the IP camera will do all the scheduled events during the overlapped time
period. For the scheduling of the Email/ftp sending and/or NAS recording, the “Schedule”
option must enabled in the “Email/ftp alarm” settings and/or the “NAS settings”.
1. Schedule list – all the scheduling are listed in this area. Each listed item can be modified
or deleted by pressing the “Edit” or “Delete” button.
2. Email/ftp Alarm – for each scheduling, if this is selected and the “Motion triggered”
and/or “D/I triggered” is enabled, the IP camera will trigger the email/ftp sending in the
scheduled time period when the video motion is detected and/or digital input alarm is
detected.
3. NAS Record – for each scheduling, if this is selected, either “Continuous” or “Motion
triggered” or “D/I triggered” could be enabled. For “Continuous”, it means that the IP
camera will do the video recording to the NAS device during the whole scheduled period.
For “Motion triggered” and/or “D/I triggered”, it means that the IP camera will do the
video recording to the NAS device for 30 seconds during the scheduled period each
time when the video motion is detected and/or digital input alarm is detected.
4. For the scheduling period, can choose between “Every week”, “Every day” or “Fixed
time” :
A.
For “Every week”, can choose week days of the week and set the time duration of
each day.
B.
C.
For “Every day”, can set the time duration of every day for the scheduling.
For “Fixed time”, can set the starting date/time and the end date/time of the
scheduling period.
30
31
3-12 Date/Time
The IP CAM can synchronize the date/time with the universally available time server (for
example stdtime.gov.tw) through NTP protocol. The date/time will then be corrected with
the time server anytime when the Internet is connected.
Users can choose the different TimeZone of their areas to display the correct time. For
some TimeZone areas, the “Daylight Saving Time” could be enabled or disabled. When the
“Daylight Saving Time” is enabled, the start and stop time of the Daylight Saving Time could
be edited.
32
3-13 Admin

1. Use CamView to locate the IP CAM by clicking the “Auto Search” item on the CamView
software.
2. Login into the web configuration page of the IP CAM.
3. Upgrade the firmware from the “Upgrade” page.
37

Appendix D. Performance Information
Video Performance Information
The video quality is dependent on the video parameter settings and the
network quality. If you want to have a better video quality, you will usually set
higher resolution and higher frame rate. This is fine when you are viewing the
video locally in the same network. But when you want to see the video
remotely through the Internet, you need to know the Internet speed (bandwidth)
connected to your home network. If the “Internet speed” setting of your IP
camera is very large, but your real Internet speed (bandwidth) is relatively low,
the video quality could be very bad. In some worst case, the video display
could be disconnected. In order to have the best video quality, you better have
broadband service from your ISP and set the “Internet speed” of the IP camera
a little lower than the real Internet speed provided by your ISP.
To notice that when multiple users are displaying the videos from the same IP
camera at the same time, the video bandwidth times number of users will be
needed for the Internet speed.
112
Appendix E. Trouble shooting
1. Could I adjust the effective focus of the IP Cam?
A: The effective focus of the IP Cam is from 30cm to infinity, so, in almost all
circumstances you can see the video clearly. There is no need to adjust
the effective focus.
2. What’s the viewing angle of the IP Cam?
A: The viewing angle of the IP Cam is about 60 degrees.
3. What’s the longest distance using the IP Cam to see the video?
A: When using the IP Cam to see a long-distance object, whether it’s clear or
not depends on the size of the object. Usually when your eyes can see
something clearly in that distance, the IP Cam can also see that object
clearly in about the same distance.
4. What should I do if the password is forgotten, and the ID/password
card is missing?
A: The easiest way to solve this problem is to reset the IP Cam to the factory
default. Please press the reset button on the cable of the IP Cam for more
than 4 seconds and release it. The IP Cam will then restart to the factory
default. The default administrator account is “admin”, administrator
password is empty. The default video-play password is “ipcam”. You can
adjust these account and passwords by using the browser to login into the
IP Cam and do the needed modifications.
5. I can see the video in a remote place, but the video quality is not good
and sometimes the video will disconnect and then the video will
reconnect again by itself.
A: It’s probably because the internet bandwidth (internet speed) is not big
enough. Please try to apply for a better internet connection from your
Internet Service Provider or decrease the bandwidth settings of the IP
Cam. You can adjust the bandwidth requirement of the IP Cam either from
the CamView software or login into the web configuration page of the IP
Cam to do the modification.
6. Does the IP Cam provide the recording function?
A: You can do the recording of the video/audio of the IP Cam from the
CamView software with the CamView software. You can also do the
video/audio recording to the standard NAS storage device. Another
software CamPlay is needed to playback the recorded vide/audio files.
7. Can I connect the IP camera directly to my PC/notebook with an
Ethernet cable?
A: If the IP camera is directly connected to your PC/notebook computer using
an Ethernet cable, the IP camera will automatically use an IP address
called “auto IP” with IP address 169.254.xxx.xxx. If your PC/notebook
computer is configured to DHCP, it will also use an “auto IP” address. But
113
this will take about one minute after the IP camera is connected to the
computer and you need to make sure that the WiFi interface on your
PC/notebook computer is disabled. After about one minute, you can run
the CamView software to access the IP camera, the CAM ID should be
displayed on the “auto-search” list. You can then see the video by double
clicking the CAM ID icon. But you need to know that in this situation, other
local or remote computer can not see the video.
114
Appendix F. 3GPP/ISMA operation
3GPP/ISMA is using RTSP protocol for 3G mobile phone to display the video
stream from some network devices, including IP camera. The IC-9000
supports the RTSP protocol and video codec needed by 3GPP/ISMA. Users
only need to access the address rtsp://ip_cam_address/CAM_ID.password on
the 3G mobile phone to access the video of the IP camera. No other extra
configuration is needed on the IP camera. Where ip_cam_address is the public
IP address of the IP camera. CAM_ID is the unique Camera ID of the specific
IP camera. Password is the video play password of the specific IP camera.
Different 3G mobile phone may need different operation to be able to key in the
rtsp address, please contact the 3G mobile phone customer service for more
details.
The video quality and resolution is the same value as set on the “video settings”
page. Since the bandwidth provided by the 3G service is under 256k bps,
better to configure the “Internet speed” of the IP camera to 128k or 64k bps.
For more information about operation on different 3G mobile phones, please
contact us for detailed document.
