Features and Benefits
This is a cutting-edge digital video surveillance camera. It can compress and transmit real time
images with outstanding image quality (18 FPS @ SXGA, 1280x1024) through a standard TCP/IP
network. This camera is your best choice to build an intelligent IP surveillance system.
H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG Triple Codec Dual Streaming
This device supports 3 compression formats, H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG. It brings superior image
quality at 18 frames per second up to a resolution of SXGA (1280 x 1024) pixels, and offers up to
26 frames per second in HD720 (1280x720). In D1 (720 x 480) / VGA (640 x 480) / QVGA /
QQVGA the device reaches 30 frames per second.
Wide Dynamic Range
This IP camera includes a special process that enhances the view in the brightest and darkest
areas. This provides for more evenly illuminated image and brings out greater details to the eye.
Rugged Vandal-Proof Construction withstands all kinds of abuse.
Special engineer polymer clear dome shell protects against brute force impact. It is extremely
durable against any tampering intruder. IP66 construction isolates electronics against the elements.
Rain, sleet or snow, nothing goes through. Temperature control ensures cold-start capability for use
in the worst of weathers.
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 in 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, 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.
Digital Time Code Embedded
The “Digital Time Code Embedded” function records video time in the video stream. Therefore,
each image frame is marked with its original recording time. It is very useful when users want to
find the video at an exact time or between a certain time intervals.

4) Reset Button
Step 1: Switch off IP device by disconnecting the power cable
Step 2: Press and continue to hold the Reset Button (with a sharp tipped object, like a pen.)
Step 3: Reconnect the power cable while continuing to hold the reset button. The red Power
LED light will flash on for 3 second first, turn off for about 15 seconds, flash on for another second
and turn off again. By this time the reset to default operation is already completed. This will take
around 20 seconds from power up. You may then release the reset button. This length of time
fluctuates slightly with the environment. The Power LED light will come back on and stay on after a
few more seconds. The unit will start up with factory default settings automatically.

3. 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.
20
www.acti.com
TCM-7411 Hardware User’s Manual
Please set the settings as below.


IP address: 192.168. 0.xxx

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
(NOTE: xxx should be a number
from 1 to 254 except 100, which is
used by the IP device. Please also
make sure that no two equipments
use the same IP address in the
same network..)
4. Open Internet Explorer (Version 6.0 or above) , and type in the Default IP:
192.168.0.100
5. When you see the login window, please input default user and password:
Default User: Admin
Password: 123456
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.
21

TCM-7411 Hardware User’s Manual
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 Network -> 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.
22
www.acti.com
TCM-7411 Hardware User’s Manual
10. Click “Apply”
11. Please go to Maintain -> Save & Reboot, and click ”Apply”. Internet Explorer will close after
a few seconds. This is normal.
12. Wait for 30 seconds, and open IE again to connect to the new IP. (In this example,
192.168.0.101). For the second device or more you add into the network, please type the
correct IP.
13. Adjust the default Video setting by going to Video & Audio -> Media 1
