SAFETY AND DISCLAIMER
Read and understand these instructions before starting an installation
Installation may involve the use of ladders, working at heights, power tools, and unpredictable outdoor
environmental conditions.
Take appropriate safety precautions when working under these conditions. These may include, but are not
limited to, ladder placement location, using lanyards on tools, and verifying location of utility lines in building
walls.
Wear appropriate safety equipment. This may include, but is not limited to, weather-related apparel, safety
glasses, and gloves.
Service Disclaimer: Some products may require additional services or equipment from your Internet Service
Provider to enable remote device access. Intelliconn does not sell the equipment for, or support this
requirement. Please contact your Internet service provider.
REQUIRED TOOLS AND SUPPLIES
TOOLS
1.
Power drill and driver (can be used to attach the mount to a wall or post)
INSTALLATION
Setup of the camera is mostly automatic if you have a current, industry standard router with the “Universal Plug
and Play” feature (UPnP). Examples are NetGear R6100 or Asus RT-N56U. Older routers and some models
provided by internet service providers may require a few manual setup steps to enable remote viewing. Recent
versions of Apple Airport routers are fully supported by Sharx Security with our detailed, step by step setup
instructions.

It is important to note that you do not need an expensive router. Even current $40 - $80 units from NetGear,
LinkSys, D-Link or Asus are perfectly fine. In fact, the most expensive routers that have too many nonstandard
enhancements can often be less desirable than the reliable mainstream 802.11 b/g/n models.

Super fast setup (Getting the camera operational – for semi-experts)
If you are very familiar with the concept of IP addresses and IP cameras and would like to proceed as quickly as
possible to see live and recorded video with wireless and remote operation:
(Before you permanently mount the Camera go through this pre-configuration step.)
1) Connect the included power supply to power and to the camera, and connect the included network cable to
your router and the camera.
2) Find the camera’s IP address in your router’s attached device list
(DHCP list) and then reserve the IP address so that it doesn’t change, unless you have an Apple Airport, in
which case you would use Airport Utility to reserve an IP address such as 10.0.1.2 based on the camera’s MAC
address (printed on the tag on the cable or sticker on the back)
3) Type http:// and your camera’s IP address into a browser, click on
“Enter” and log in with username: admin, password: admin, and if you
are using Internet Explorer on a PC, allow both ActiveX installations. If
using Chrome, you will have to add this address into the allowed list for
the Flash player under privacy and security settings.
At this point you should already see nice video from the camera!
4) At the top of the camera screen select
“Setting” then click on “Task” then select the
“Task Management” menu, place a
checkmark on task #9 and “Apply” to start
motion detection recording. Briefly walk or
wave your hand in front of the camera, then
wait 2 minutes for recording of the first file to
complete.
Click on “Storage” then click on the “Browse Storage” menu.

At this point you should have your first recorded video!
5) For Wireless Setup: attach the antenna.
Then in the Settings tab, click on “Network” then select “Wireless Setup”. enable wireless, and scan for
available network by selecting “Search” to find your network, select it and “Apply”, type and re-type your
password and “Apply” again to save it, then “Test” to confirm that you have no typo, and disconnect the cable.

At this point your camera should work wirelessly!
6) Assuming you have a plain cable modem and a standard relatively modern router with UPnP service, you
should be able to do the following. First check if the UPNP service is available. In the camera’s menu, select the
“Setting” tab, then click on “System” and scroll down the screen to the line that says “Internet URL:”.
If the line says no UPnP gateway, then the
UPnP may be turned off or not available for
your Router. You will need to go into your
router settings (not covered in this user
guide) and set up this function by signing on
to your router and enabling the ”DMZ” or
“default server” in your router for the
camera’s IP address, then get the internet
URL from www.checkip.org . If your modem
has a router built in and you are using your
own router, also enable the DMZ in the
modem in your other router’s IP.
If you have a UPnP service active on your
router, then the Status should say Success.
At this point you should be able to access the camera remotely!
To test this out you can use your phone, make sure your Wi-Fi is turned off (so you are not on the same
network as your camera, open up your internet browser, and key in the external URL
http:////xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:yyyy where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is your external gateway, and yyyy is the UPnP external
port (in this case its 8150).
Note: not all Internet Service Providers support this type of access. Additional service options, such as a Static
IP may be required.
For more options, and more detailed help please refer to the Sharx Camera User Guide located at

Security & Date Time setup
Currently your camera is setup with the default user id and password. In today’s internet environment, it is
always a good idea to secure your camera from anyone who might try to access it through the internet.
Intelliconn recommends you set up a new user account and password for your camera.
Setup New User Account
Using your internet browser, key in the IP
address for your Camera and click enter.
Example: http://192.168.1.104
Click on “Enter” and log in with
username: admin
DEFUALT
Username
password: admin
and
password
Click on “Setting”, then click on “Tools”, then click on “User Management”. A Warning screen should appear
asking you to change the default admin password. If you see this message click on here. Enter the new
password for the admin account. Make sure you have written down (saved) this password somewhere as you
will need it each time you access the camera. Once you have changed the password click on “Save”.
If other people will be viewing the camera it is
good practise to add a user account. User
accounts can view the camera image but cannot
make any changes to the settings of the camera
or view stored footage. Click on “Add” to add a
user account.
In the Add User screen, key in a user name and
a password for the user account. When
completed click on “Add”. A good practise is to
use this account when you want to simply view
the camera.
Setup Date and Time

Email alerts
Using your internet browser, key in the IP address for
your Camera and click enter.
Example: http://192.168.1.104
Click on “Enter” and log in with username: admin the
password you have set up password: XXXXXX
Click on “Setting”, then click on “Tasks”, then click
on “Task Management”. Check box #1, then click on
“Email alarm sending”.
Turn on or off your email alerts
Set up your outgoing email SMTP server and email account. For simplicity Sharx recommends the use of Gmail
address to handle the outgoing emails. If you do not have Gmail, and want to have the email go to your own
email, not to worry, as the camera uses the Gmail account to send the email to you. Since this setup is very
simple, has no costs associated with it, and is consistent, we recommend using this method. It is documented
below.
If you do not have a gmail account it can be set up at https://myaccount.google.com
Set up the your out going email service as per the following settings:
Alarm Interval: 60 (once every 60 seconds, this is
how often you will get a notification. You could set it
for longer so as not to get a flood of emails)
SMTP server name: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP server port: 465 (secure SSL port)
Secure SSL connection:
SSL/TLS
Authentication:
Yes
User Name: ____@gmail.com (your gmail account)
Password: xxxxxxxxx (your gmail password)
Sender mail address: xxxx@xxx.xxx (optional)
Receiver email address: jsmith@xxxx.yyy (email
address where you want to send the notifications to
i.e. the email address setup on your phone)
Subject: xxxxxxxxxxxx (create a valid email subject
message)
Message: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (this is the content in the email)
Once all the settings are complete then click on “Apply”. Wait up to 2 minutes for the changes to take effect.
Then test out the setup by creating a motion event in front of the cameras zone.

At this point you should be able to get email messages from the camera!
You should always be able to access your camera from an internet browser (such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft
Edge, Safari, Chrome, Firefox) using the cameras IP address while on the same network (i.e. http://192.168.1.104), or sometimes by using the Internet URL when you are trying to access the camera
remotely (i.e. - http://197.197.197.187:8150).

Viewing Stored Video
Using your internet browser, key in the IP address for
your Camera and click enter.
Example: http://192.168.1.104
Click on “Enter” and log in with username: admin the
password you have set up password: XXXXXX
Click on “Setting”, then click on “Storage”, then click on
“Browse Storage”.
In the directory, files are stored in various methods
depending on what parameters were set up for event
recording. If you have setup your recorded video as
per the fast setup, (option 9 under task management),
you should be recording events based on “Record to
storage on alarm”. There should be files in the
directories “All” and “Record on Alarm”. You can
open either directory and search for the recorded
event.
Select “download” if you want to save
the video to your computer or if you
are not on the camera’s network (i.e.
accessing from your phone), or you can
select “Play” to view the recorded
video. Close the window when you
have finished viewing the recording.

Note: The oldest events will be dropped off as room is needed for new recordings.
