2. SOFTWARE OPERATION
2.1 IP Camera Tool
When camera has been installed, open IP Camera Tool program on your computer. It
will automatically begin searching for your camera over the LAN.
There are three possible scenarios:
1) If no camera is found on the LAN: after about one minute of searching, the field will display “IP
Server not found” and automatically shut down IP Camera Tool program. Check if DHCP is
enabled on your router, or disable MAC address filtering if on WiFi. Also, make sure that your
firewall (if used) isn’t blocking access to the camera.
2) If cameras are found on the LAN: all of the cameras will be listed and the total number will be
displayed in the result field (as shown above).
3) If cameras found on the LAN do not share the same subnet with the computer: a prompt will
be displayed. Click right mouse button to choose “Network Configuration.” This will set the IP
address of the camera to the same subnet as the LAN. You can also choose “Obtain IP from
DHCP server” or “set a static IP for the camera.”
NOTE: If you could not find the camera’s IP on the IP Camera Tool, check that DHCP is enabled
on your router, that your MAC address filter is disabled and that a firewall or antivirus software
isn’t blocking the camera.
Setup Options
Right-click the IP camera to display six options: Basic Properties, Network Configuration,
Upgrade Firmware, Refresh Camera List, Flush Arp Buffer and About IP Camera Tool:
insteon.com

INSTEON® Outdoor Wireless IP Camera

Basic Properties: Find device information such as device ID, the system firmware version
and web UI version
If there are several cameras on the list, then choose Basic Properties to check the device ID and
find that camera’s specific IP address. For example, if device ID is 00606E8C5058, it will have
the same MAC address as found on the sticker on the bottom/back of the camera.
Each camera has its own MAC address. Sometimes, if a camera’s IP address is not found on the
IP Camera Tool, the firewall may be blocking it. In that case, you can either add the MAC
address to your router and give it a fixed IP, or add the MAC address as a trusted site. There are
two MAC addresses: one is a wired MAC, and the other is a WiFi MAC.
Figure 2.3

4. APPENDIX
4.1 Frequently Asked Questions
Always confirm connectivity with your LAN and the internet prior to testing your camera.
4.1.1 I forgot my username and/or password
Reset the administrator username and password by making sure the camera is powered on,
then pressing and holding the camera reset button for 15 seconds. This will factory restore the
username and password to “admin” with no password.
4.1.2 Why do I keep seeing “Subnet doesn’t match, dbclick to change”?
If IP Camera Tool shows this error, select Obtain IP from DHCP server. If this error still exists
afterward, check your LAN connection and verify that the camera subnet and gateway are the
same as your computer.
4.1.3 Why isn’t my video streaming or showing images?
The video streaming is transmitted by the ActiveX controller. If ActiveX controller isn’t installed
correctly you will not see the video image. There are two ways to resolve this problem:
1) Reinstall IP Camera Tool and ActiveX control
2) Download ActiveX controller and set IE’s security setting of IE: IEToolInternet
ProperSecurityCustom LevelActiveX control and Plug-ins. Enable the following:
• Download unsigned ActiveX controls
• Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe
• Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins
insteon.com
37
INSTEON® Outdoor Wireless IP Camera
If ActiveX is running but you still cannot see live video, a red cross is displayed in the center of
the video and a yellow light
appears in the device status, change the port number (do not
use port number 80).
Note: Make sure that your firewall or anti-virus software does not block the camera or ActiveX. If
you still cannot see live video, try shutting down the firewall or anti-virus software and try again.
4.1.4 Why isn’t the IP camera accessible on internet?
1. ActiveX controller is not installed correctly
insteon.com
38
INSTEON® Outdoor Wireless IP Camera
2. The port that the camera is using is blocked by a firewall or anti-virus software. Try changing
the port number.
3. Port forwarding is not successful (see How to Set DDN Service Settings in the Quick Start
Guide).
4.1.5 IP Camera Tool can’t find the camera’s IP
1. Verify that the network cable is securely fastened to the camera
2. Make sure DHCP is enabled and MAC address filter is disabled on your router
3, Make sure that a firewall or anti-virus software does not block the camera. You can add the
camera as a trusted site through your firewall or anti-virus software.
4.1.6 Why has the UPnP failed?
The UPnP only contains port forwarding. Sometimes, port forwarding may fail automatically
because of a firewall or anti-virus software. It may also be due to the router’s security settings.
Manually configure port forwarding so the camera can be viewed on the internet.
4.1.7 Why can’t I find a desktop shortcut to IP Camera Tool?
If you use Windows 7 or Vista and the shortcut is missing after installing IP Camera Tool, check
the program path. For example, if the path reads: C:\Windows\System32\IPCamera.exe, then
change it to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\IPCamera.exe. After this you should be able to use the
shortcut without any problems.
4.1.8 Why can’t I change the record path?
If you use Windows 7 or Vista, you may be not able to change the record path due to your
computer’s security settings. Instead, add the camera as a trusted IE site.
4.1.9 Why can’t I find the multi-device settings and record icons?
Record and multi-device functions are controlled by ActiveX. These functions are not available in
Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

4.1.10 Why won’t my camera connect wirelessly?
If your camera cannot connect wirelessly after you enable the wireless settings, power cycle the
camera by unplugging the power cable and plugging it back in. Make sure your wireless settings
are correct and match your wireless router or access point.
4.1.11 Why can’t I see my other cameras in multi-device WAN?
If you want to view all the cameras on WAN, verify that each camera you added in the
multi-device settings can be accessed using the DDNS name and port number. Make sure you
use the DDNS domain name, not the camera’s LAN IP. See How to Add Cameras in WAN.
4.1.12 I only see a black screen or undefined characters when using remote
login.
If you can remotely access the login page, this indicates that your DDNS settings are correct. If
you are unable to see live video and/or undefined characters, this may be due to Internet speed
issues or the camera using WiFi.

4.3 Port Forwarding Basics
A software port is a numbered connection that your network uses to provide or deny access to
your home LAN (local area network) from a remote location. Port forwarding allows you to
access your home LAN from any Internet connection.
IMPORTANT! Port forwarding setup varies based on the make and model of your router. These
examples are provided to help you understand the port forwarding process , but see your router’s

manual for device-specific port forwarding instructions.
Netgear
1. Type your router’s address into an Internet browser. By default, this should be 192.168.0.1;
the information should be provided in your router’s instructions or on the router itself.
2. You will be prompted to enter a username and a password. For Netgear devices, the
default username is "admin" and the password is either "password" or "1234" (unless you
have already changed them).
3. Open "Advanced" and click "Port Forwarding." The Ports window will open with
information on existing HTTP and FTP ports (these are used to connect your router to the
Internet).
4. Click the "Add Custom Service" button and enter a new service name, such as
INSTEONIPCamera1).
5. Enter the camera’s IP address (found in the IP Camera Tool device list) into the Server IP
Address field.
6. You will need to specify a port range to have open for your camera. 8000-8999 is a good
range to work with, but make sure the port you open does not conflict with any ports you
may already have open (from your list of Services on the "Port Forwarding" page). To
enter a single port (ex. port 8030), use the same port for the "Start Port" and "End Port."
7. Click "Apply" and logout from the router settings page.
8. After making sure you are not connected to your local wireless connection, open your
smartphone’s Internet browser and enter your camera IP address followed immediately by
a colon and the port you have opened (for example http://192.168.1.4:8030). You should
see the camera login screen.
Linksys
1. Type your router’s address into an Internet browser address bar. By default this should be
192.168.1.1; the information should be provided in your router’s instructions or on the
router itself.
2. You will be prompted to enter a username and a password. For Linksys devices, the
default username is "admin" and the password is left blank unless you have changed
them previously.
