2.3 Adding and Connecting the IP Cameras
2.3.1 Adding the Online IP Cameras
Purpose:
The one of the main functions of the NVR is to connect the network cameras and save the video got from it. So
before you can get a live view or record of the video, you should add the network cameras to the connection list
of the device.
Before you start:
Establish the network connection between IPC and the NVR via wired or wireless network.
 Wired network: connect the Ethernet port of computer to the LAN interface of NVR. And configure the IP
address of computer on the principle that the network segment is the same with NVR, that is
192.168.254.×××.
 Wireless network: the default SSID and key of wireless network provided by NVR is in the tag of device.
 Hikvision WIFI IP camera which has default user name and password and is within 2m distance from the
NVR will be added automatically.
 Ensure the network connection is valid and correct. For detailed checking and configuring of the network,
please see Chapter 9.3 Checking Network Traffic and Chapter 9.4 Configuring Network Detection.
