IT150W User’s Manual
Software installation
In the following content, "user" refers to those who can access the IT150W Network Camera
and "administrator" refers to the supervisor who can configure the IT150W Network Camera
and grant users access.
When completing the hardware installation, administrators need to run the Installer program
included in the product CDROM to locate the newly installed IT150W Network Camera. Any
IT150W Network Camera standby for software installation will be captured by the Installer
program. Therefore there may be several entries shown in the window. Administrators may
differentiate the IT150W Network Camera with the serial number and click on the entry with
"Assigned" field labeled "No" to perform software installation. The serial number is printed on
the labels on the carton and the rear panel of the IT150W Network Camera’s body.
To install the IT150W Network Camera for wireless usage, it is recommended to install in
Ethernet first. After successfully entering the network configuration page, input the correct
WLAN settings, remove the Ethernet cable and recycle the power to work in WLAN.
The IP address shown in "Current
IP Address" field depends on the
local network. It may get from the
DHCP
server
for
the
administrator's reference. If there
is no DHCP server, administrators
can
choose
any
neighbor
IP
address of the PC. The Installer
program will check the IP address
automatically; there will be a
warning message if it conflicts
with others.
Intellisystem Technologies

IT150W User’s Manual
If administrators want to use another IP address, modify the IP address text field. If the
administrator wants to fix the IP address of the unit, check the option "Use this IP whenever
system boots" to skip future installation procedures. Otherwise the unit will need installation
whenever it is restarted.
Click on “Set IP Address” button to
proceed.
Enter the wireless LAN settings according to
the access point in infrastructure or Ad Hoc
master. The connection mode, SSID, WEP
settings are required. If the settings are not
sure at this stage, click “Skip” to continue
installation in Ethernet. All the settings can
be entered later from the web configuration
page.

IT150W User’s Manual
When administrators choose “Use this IP
whenever system boots” or fill any
wireless network settings, the local FTP
server port and root password of the
IT150W Network Camera will be utilized.
If they have been changed prior to the
installation, a confirmation window will
pop out to request correct settings.
After entering the correct settings, press
“Retry”.
If the “Server FTP Port” or “Server Root Password”
is lost, click “Cancel” to exit. In this case, the IP
address of the IT150W Network Camera will still
be installed though it is not fixed for further reboot.
If the root password is correct, administrator can
log in to browse the correct local FTP server port in
the network settings. Otherwise refer to Appendix
A Troubleshooting to restore factory default
settings and then use the installer to install again.
Once installation is complete, administrators should proceed to the next section
"First access to the IT150W Network Camera" for necessary checks and
configurations.

IT150W User’s Manual
First access to the IT150W Network Camera
Check network settings even if connected already
Although the IT150W Network Camera already can be connected after software installation
from Local Area Network, administrators should complete the network settings in the
configuration page including the correct subnet mask and IP address of gateway and DNS. Ask
for the network administrator or Internet service provider for the detail information. By default
the IT150W Network Camera will need administrator's installation every time it reboots. If the
network settings are sure to work all the time, disable the install option. Refer to “Network
settings” in system configuration page for details. Once any setting is entered incorrectly and
thus hangs the IT150W Network Camera, restore the factory settings according to the steps in
troubleshooting.
Add password to protect from offense from strangers
Since the administrator’s password is blank by default, the IT150W Network Camera will not
ask for any password. However the administrator should change the password as soon as
possible to protect from network intruders. Once the administrator’s password is saved, the
IT150W Network Camera always needs user name and password before access. The
administrator can setup at most twenty user accounts. Each user is able to access the IT150W
Network Camera except for system configuration. Some critical functions are limited only for
administrators such as system configuration, user administration and software upgrade. The
user name of the administrator is assigned to “root” permanently. Once the password is
changed, the browser will display an authentication window to ask for the new password. There
is no way to discover administrator’s password. If the password is forgotten, only restoring
factory defaults can help.

How to Use
Authentication
After opening the Web browser and typing in the URL of the IT150W Network Camera, a
dialogue window may pop up to request a username and password except that the
administrator does not save any password. Upon successful authentication, the main page will
display like the figure below.
In the figure, the foreground is the login window and the background shows the message when
authentication fails. The user may check the option to save the password for future
convenience.

Installing plug-in
If it is initial access to the IT150W Network Camera in Windows, the web browser may prompt
for permission to install a new plug-in that is provided by the IT150W Network Camera. Prompt
or not and the prompt message depend on the Internet security settings of user’s PC or
notebook. The highest security level may prohibit any installation and execution attempt even
the plug-in is safe. This plug-in has been registered for certificate and is used to display the
motioned pictures in the browser. Users may click on
to proceed. If the web browser
does not allow the user to install, check the Internet security option to lower security levels or
contact network supervisors.

Connection type
If it is the first access to “Connection type” page in Windows, the web browser will ask to install
a new plug-in that is provided by the IT150W Network Camera. This plug-in has been
registered for certificate and is used to change the parameters at the client side. Users may
click on
to install the plug-in. If the web browser does not allow the user to install,
check the Internet security to lower the security level or contact network supervisors.
There are two settings for the client side. One is “Media Option” for users to determine if the
audio should be muted. The other is “Protocol Option” to choose the connection protocol
between client and server. There are three protocols to optimize your usage - UDP, TCP and
HTTP. With UDP protocol, audio and video streams can be more real-time. But some packets
may be lost due to network burst traffic and images will be obscure. If TCP protocol is selected,
packet loss would not occur and video display will more accurate. But the real-time effect is
worse than UDP protocol. If the network is protected by a firewall and it opens HTTP port (80)
only, HTTP protocol must be selected. In this mode, audio will not be sent and you can see the
video only. If you have no special needs and no idea to choose one among them, simply choose
UDP. Generally the client will automatically try these protocols by the following order, UDP →
TCP → HTTP. After the client connects to the IT150W Network Camera successfully, “Protocol
Option” will show the working protocol. The chosen protocol will be recorded in the user's PC
and used for next connection. If the network environment is changed or users want to let web
browser detect again, select UDP manually to save and then return HOME to connect again.

Administrator’s capability
Tune the best performance
The best performance means the image refresh rate should be the fastest as possible and the
video quality should be the best as possible at the lowest network bandwidth as possible. Three
factors, “Maximum frame rate”, “Fix bit rate”, and “Fix quality” in the Video configuration page,
are correlative to the performance.
My priority is real-time motioned images
To achieve the real-time visual effect, the network bandwidth should be large enough to
transmit 20 image frames or more. If you are in the broadband network over 1 Mbps, you can
fix the bit rate to 1000Kbps or 1200Kbps, or fix the quality to achieve the maximum frames.
The maximum frame rate is 25 in 50Hz system and 30 in 60Hz system. If your network
bandwidth is more than 384Kbps, you can fix the bit rate according to your bandwidth and set
the maximum frame rate to 25 or 30. If the images vary dramatically in your environment, you
may slow down the maximum frame rate to 20 to decrease the transmitted data for better
video quality since human could not easily tell the difference between 20 and 25 or 30 frames
per second. If your network bandwidth is below 384 Kbps, you should fix the bit rate according
to your bandwidth and try out the best performance by tuning the maximum frame rate. The
larger frame rate in slow network will blur the images. You may also try to choose “Half” in size
option for better images or “Halfx2” for larger image size. Note that even you have well tuned

IT150W User’s Manual
the parameters, the performance may still vary from person to person when multiple users
view at the same time. Because the network has burst constraint and everyone’s environment
is not the same, any poor connection will drop the normal performance.
My priority is clear identification for each image
To have the best video quality, you should fix the quality to detailed or excellent and tune the
maximum frame rate to suit for your network bandwidth. If you get some broken pictures in
slow network, you can choose TCP protocol in “Connection type” for more accurate
transmission but the received images may have certain time delay. Note that any slow
connection in multiple users will drop the proper performance.
I want to compromise between real-time and clear images
If you have a broadband network, choose fix quality to normal or better rather than fix
bandwidth. Otherwise fix the bandwidth according to your actual network speed and set the
frame rate to 30. If the images look bad, select the lower frame rate above 15. If the images
are not improved, select the lower bandwidth.

Protect the IT150W Network Camera by passwords
The IT150W Network Camera is shipped without any password by default. That means
everyone can access the IT150W Network Camera including the configuration as long as the IP
address is known. It is necessary to assign a password if the IT150W Network Camera is
intended to be accessed by others. Type a new word twice in ○,1 to enable protection. This
password is used to identify the administrator. Then add an account with user name and
password for your friends in ○,2. The IT150W Network Camera can provide twenty accounts
for your valuable customers or friends. Each account identifies the access right rather than the
real visitor. That allows multiple visitors share the same account of different level. An option
to access DI/DO is provided for each account. Some users may need to prohibit from
controlling your attached devices. You may delete some users from ○,3.
More flexible options for viewers ○,4
The first option allows anyone uses “demo” as the user name to view without password.
Administrators can also decide if more viewers are allowed to watch the video if the viewers
exceed the limit. The overloaded viewers will have snapshot mode instead.

B. Frequently asked questions
Q What if I forget my password?
A After the administrator's password is assigned, every access to the IT150W Network Camera
needs authentication. If you are one of the managed users, you have to ask the administrator
for the password. If you are the administrator, there is no way to recover the root password
except for restoring factory default. Refer to Appendix A for the procedures.
Q Why can I not watch video from the IT150W Network Camera after it is authenticated?
A There are many possible scenarios regarding this problem,
1. If you have just installed the IT150W Network Camera and are unable to watch the video,
check if the heartbeat LED is blinking or the lens cap is removed. If the heartbeat LED is dim,
perform the software installation again.
2. If the IT150W Network Camera is well installed and you are accessing the IT150W Network
Camera for the first time using Internet Explorer, adjust the security level of Internet Explorer
to allow installation of plug-ins.
3. If the problem still exists after adjusting, and the message over the image window is
showing "connecting", the network traffic may be too crowded.
Q What is the plug-in for?
A The plug-in provided by the IT150W Network Camera is used to display motion pictures and
audio in Internet Explorer. If your system does not allow installation of any plug-in software,
the security level of the web browser may need to be lowered. It is recommended that you
consult your network supervisors in your office regarding adjustment of the security level.
Software installation may be regulated in some offices.
Q Why is the timestamp different from the system time of my PC or notebook?
A The timestamp is based on the system time of the IT150W Network Camera. It is maintained
by a real-time clock inside and can be automatically synchronized with the time server if the
IT150W Network Camera is connected to the Internet and the function is enabled. Differences
of several hours may result from the time zone setting.
Q Can I install it on ceiling?
A Yes. There are flip and mirror options in video configuration page to correct the images for
upside down installation.

IT150W User’s Manual
Q The image is not clear enough.
A Rotate the lens to adjust the focus after the IT150W Network Camera is installed in the
proper position. The image settings and white balance can be fine tuned to achieve the best
visual effect. Also notice the power line frequency must match the local utility to synchronize
the florescent lights to eliminate the uncomfortable flashing.
Q Why does the image not refresh regularly?
A Some anti-virus programs will provide functions to filter the received web content. It will take
time to perform the data examination and affect the streaming application such as the IT150W
Network Camera. However it only affects the HTP mode of the IT150W Network Camera. If the
network allows the HTTP mode only, disable the web filtering function of the anti-virus program
temporarily. During the period, users should take the risk of malicious network activity.
Q I have opened motion detection windows but it cannot work.
A If the motion detection windows are setup and names are given, check if the function is
checked at the first line. While it is enabled, adjust the sensitivity and percentage to monitor
the level indicator if the threshold is appropriate.
Q I cannot hear any sound while watching.
A If there is "V_ONLY" shown above the image, click on connection type to uncheck "Disable
audio". If there is "V" shown instead of "AV", the sound card in your PC may not properly
installed. If "AV" is shown, check the audio source of the IT150W Network Camera.
Q How many users are allowed to watch the IT150W Network Camera at the same time?
A Too many users requesting the real-time multimedia content will digest the network. To
achieve the best effect, the IT150W Network Camera is designed to accommodate maximum
ten users to watch and listen to the IT150W Network Camera at the same time. It is
recommended to build another web server to host a large quantity of users by retrieving
contents from the IT150W Network Camera periodically.
Q How fast is the video rate of the IT150W Network Camera?
A The MPEG4 codec engine can process 30 frames per second internally. However the total
performance is subject to many coefficients as follows:
1. Network throughput,
2. Bandwidth share,

interfaces. The user authentication and special confirmation in installation can keep the
IT150W Network Camera from unauthorized access. You may also change the HTTP port to
non-public number. The demo account is good to separate guests from normal users and thus
you can easily block guests anytime. You can check the system log to examine any abnormal
activities and trace the origins.
Q Why can I not access the IT150W Network Camera when I setup some options in the
application?
A Since the IT150W Network Camera is a "IT150W", any incorrect network settings will make
it unreachable. Once the system is missed due to wrong configuration, restore the factory
default settings following procedures in Appendix A.
