within the LAN or anywhere with internet and/or phone access using the included
CamView software. There is no need for complicated DNS names, firewall settings, or
anything else. Just plug it in and it works.
With 3GPP/ISMA support, you can view the video from the IP camera on any 3G
mobile phone, any time, any place you have phone access. The special mobile phone
software is designed to access the camera without the need for a fixed IP address.
The video settings, including frame rate, resolution, and bandwidth, can be different
for use with PC or mobile phone monitoring and viewing.
For indoor surveillance and remote monitoring, the Day & Night IP Network
Camera provides the best image quality and performance in its class. The Day &
Night IP Network Camera also provides the best bandwidth efficiency, offering
640x480 resolution, 30 fps frame rate, and real MPEG4 image compression ability.
The built-in microphone enables remote users to not only view, but also listen, to the
monitored area.
Equipped with a very low-light sensitive sensor and infrared LEDs, the Day &
Night IP Network Camera can "see" in any lighting condition, seamlessly switching
between day and night modes depending on the detected light level.
The camera features a variety of storage options, including the use of Network
Attached Storage devices. The software includes scheduling functions, which can
activate camera recording based on a fixed time or triggered by motion detection.
With a built-in web functionality, you can modify the camera can be managed from
any PC or Mac using a standard web browser.
The Day & Night IP Network Camera provides both wireless IEEE 802.11 b/g and
wired Ethernet network interfaces for flexible installation options. It supports the WEP
and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) security modes to provide the best security for

The differences
It is easy to monitor the video produced by the IP Camera from anywhere in the
world using the included CamView software. You do not need to remember or
configure complicated network settings, such as the IP address or domain name,
DDNS name, port mapping, firewall, etc. of the NAT/router devices. All you need is to
have the Camera ID and Password, plus the CamView software installed on a PC or
mobile device. The IP Camera is a true Plug & Play device.
So, the differences between the IP Camera from Monoprice and other similar
devices are as follows:
 Public IP address needed?
No
 Dynamic DNS needed?
No
 Port mapping in router?
No
 Virtual server in router?
No
 UPnP support in router?
No
 What's needed?

2. Hardware Description and Quick Installation/Usage
The IP CAM is designed to be very easy to install and use. First, let's look at the
major components of the IP CAM.
2.1. Major Hardware Components
The major components on the front panel of the IP CAM products are the built-in
microphone, lens, IR LEDs, and status LEDs:
1. Microphone – for receiving audio/voice. Effective distance is about 16 feet (5
meters).
2. Lens – the focus of the lens is fixed, so you do not need to spend time to adjust
the focus. The effective focus range is from about 12" (30 cm) to infinity.
3. IR LEDs – there are a total of 11 IR LEDs, which can provide night vision out to
about 10m distance.
4. Light detector – the light detector determines the illumination level, allowing the IR
LEDs to be automatically activated in low-light conditions.
5. Status indication LED (red) – this LED indicates the Internet connection status.
When the Internet connection is working properly, the red LED will be steadily on.
If there is any Internet connection problem, the red LED will blink repeatedly.
6. Ethernet indication LED (blue) – this LED indicates whether the Ethernet link is ok
and packet traffic is being properly sent/received. When the Ethernet cable is
properly connected, the blue LED is steadily on. When Ethernet data packets are
being sent/received, the blue LED will blink.
Figure 2-1: Major components, front view
The major components on the back panel of the IP CAM products are the bracket
screw jack, power jack, Ethernet jack, and reset button:
1. Bracket screw jack – this screw jack is where the mounting bracket attaches to the
CAM. With the bracket you can place the IP CAM on a desk or mount it to a wall or
7
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
ceiling.
2. Power jack – this DC connector is where the external power adapter attaches to
the IP CAM. The IP CAM requires a power level of 5 VDC/1.0A. Do not use any
power source other than the supplied power adapter or an exact equivalent.
3. Ethernet jack – this standard RJ-45 jack is for making a wired Ethernet connection.
When the Ethernet link is ok, the blue Ethernet indication LED on the front side will
be steadily on (when no activity is present) or blinking (when data packets are
being transferred).
4. Reset button – pressing this button resets the IP CAM to the default factory
settings. The button is slightly recessed, so you will need a small object, such as a
pen tip or toothpick, to press and hold the reset button for at least 4 seconds to
activate the reset function. Please refer to section 3.18 for more details.
5. Antenna jack (for IP Cam(w) only) – this RP-SMA screw jack is where the wireless
antenna attaches to the camera. The antenna must be properly attached for
802.11b/g wireless connectivity. However, if using only a wired connection the
antenna can be left unattached.
Figure 2-2: Major components, back view
2.2. Quick Installation and Usage
There are only three things that you need to do to view the video from the IP CAM.
1. Connect the IP CAM to the home/office network.
2. Install the CamView software on the notebook/PC.
3. Key in the ID/password of the IP CAM (from the included ID/Password card) into
the CamView software, and then you can access the camera and view video.
First, connect the IP CAM to the home/office network
First connect the IP CAM accessories to the IP CAM body correctly, including the
antenna, bracket, power adapter, and Ethernet cable, as shown in Figure 2-3.
Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the network, usually by plugging in to a
8
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
network switch or router, as shown in Figure 2-4. By default the IP CAM is configured
to use the DHCP function and most home/office networks include a DHCP server.
Therefore the IP CAM should connect to the internet immediately. The Internet status
LED will be constant red when the IP CAM is properly connected to the Internet. If the
LED is blinking, please refer to section 3.3-3.5 to try other network settings.
Figure 2-3: IP CAM connection diagram.
Figure 2-4: Connect Ethernet cable to a switch/router.
Second, install the CamView software on a PC/notebook
Insert the installation CD into the CD-ROM drive in your notebook or personal

computer running Microsoft Windows OS. Run the CamViewInstaller-xxx.exe
installation program on the disk. The program will pop-up some windows asking about
various installation options. Click the "next” button to proceed with the installation.
After installation is complete, there will be a CamView icon on the desktop of your
computer, double-click this icon to run the CamView software.
Figure 2-5: The installation CD disk
Third, use the CamView program to see the video
When the CamView software starts the screen will look similar to the screen
shown in Figure 2-7 below. If the computer running the CamView software is on the
same local area network as the IP CAM, the CAM ID will be displayed in the
Auto-Search list. For example, if the CAM ID is 001-001-029, then the Auto Search list
will show the ID 001001029. If the CAM ID does not show, double-click the
"Auto-Search" button to scan the network for all connected cameras. To view the
video from the IP CAM, simply double-click the CAM ID in the Auto-Search list. A
pop-up window will ask for the password, as shown in Figure 2-8. Enter the password
found on the ID/Password Card (Figure 2-6) and click OK.

Viewing video in a remote location
After the IP CAM has been installed and you can see the video from the CamView
software in the local network, it is very easy to see the video from a remote location.
All you need to do is add a camera item in the "CameraList” folder of the CamView
software, then key in the IP CAM ID and Password (from the ID/Password card).
Double-click the camera item to immediately begin viewing video from the IP CAM.
No additional NAT/router settings modifications are needed.
2.3. Wireless Connection (for IP Cam(w) only)
The IP CAM can also be connected to the network through an 802.11b/g wireless
connection. There are only three steps needed to set up the wireless connection:
1. Set the WiFi security settings on the IP CAM's web configuration page.
2. Test the WiFi settings to ensure they are correct.
3. Unplug the Ethernet cable.
First, set the WiFi security settings on the web configuration page.
Make sure there is a WiFi router or AP on your network. Write down the WiFi
security parameters used for this WiFi AP/router, including the SSID, the security
mode, encryption protocols, and the "key” values. The supported WiFi security mode
of the IP CAM is WEP (64 bits and 128 bits) and WPA-PSK (TKIP and AES). In most
home/office WiFi environments, this is quite sufficient.
The easiest way to configure the WiFi settings on the IP CAM is through the
CamView software. Right-click the searched IP CAM in the "Auto Search” list and
click the "Web Configure” option to open the login window of the IP CAM. Fill in all the
WiFi security parameters you have written down. The WiFi configuration is complete
now.
Please refer to section 3.4 for more detailed description, if necessary.
.
Second, test the WiFi settings to ensure they are correct
You can now test the above WiFi settings. Click the "WiFi test” on the "WiFi
Security” settings web page. The testing result will be displayed in less than 60
seconds. If the test failed, check and re-enter the WiFi security parameters, then test
again.
Third, unplug the Ethernet cable
If the WiFi test is successful, you can enable the WiFi connection simply by
unplugging the Ethernet cable from the IP CAM. The IP CAM will detect the Ethernet
12
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
cable unplugged condition and start the WiFi connection. After the WiFi is connected,
the IP CAM will connect to the Internet immediately.
Notes:
1. Remember that the WiFi connection will use a different IP address, therefore you
will need to do the "Auto Search” function in the CamView software again to find
the IP CAM after the WiFi has connected.
2. If you want to switch back to the wired Ethernet connection, just plug the Ethernet
cable into the IP CAM again. You do not need to disable the WiFi function on the
web pages.

Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.1. Information
The first page in the web configuration menu of the IP CAM is the information
page. You can see the model name/firmware version, IP CAM ID, registration status,
network type, and current video settings (bandwidth and resolution) on this page (see
Figure 3-3).
The IP CAM can be viewed remotely by the CamView software only when the IP
CAM is registered. If this IP CAM is not registered, please check the Ethernet wiring of
your network environment. The "Network type” field displays the network connection
type (wired or wireless) and method (DHCP, PPPoE, or static IP) the IP CAM is using.
The "Video users” field displays the number of connected video viewing users.

3.2. Video Display
This display page allows you to view the video display of the IP camera, as shown
in Figure 3-4. For the first time use of this display on a computer, an Active-X
component will be automatically downloaded into the browser. This could take some
time, depending on the internet speed. The component is downloaded from a public
domain, so the computer must be connected to the Internet. If you want to modify the
video display screen size, please refer to section 3.6 for more details.
Figure 3-4: Video display page
16
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.3. Network
The Network page allows you to modify the network settings of the wired Ethernet
connection. The default settings use DHCP to obtain an IP address automatically. In
most home and office network environments, there is a DHCP server running. In this
situation, by using these default settings, the IP CAM can work immediately.
If the Ethernet cable is unplugged, the IP CAM will lose connection. But as soon
as the Ethernet cable is plugged in again, the IP CAM will obtain a new IP address
immediately.
If the network environment does not support the DHCP function you will need to
configure the network settings of the IP CAM manually. Fill in all the fields including
"IP address”, "Subnet mask”, "Default gateway”, and "DNS server”, to establish a
network connection. All these settings must be correct for your network environment
or the IP CAM will not work. The default setting is "Obtain an IP address
automatically”.

3.4. WiFi Security (for IP cam(w) only)
You can connect the IP CAM to the network wirelessly, provided you have a
wireless router or AP. Simply click the "Enable WiFi function” button to enable the
wireless functionality.
Figure 3-7: WiFi security disabled page
In order to use the wireless network, you need to fill in the following fields:
1. SSID – this is the ID of the wireless router or AP in your wireless network
environment.
2. Security mode – this is the security mode used by the wireless router or AP. You
need to choose one of the three modes – None, WEP, or WPA-PSK:
WEP: Wireless Encryption Protocol.
WPA: WiFi Protected Access.
PSK: Pre-Shared Key.
TKIP: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol.
AES: Advanced Encryption Standard.
3. WEP mode – when the WEP mode is chosen, you need to also choose between
the 64-bit (5 char), 64-bit (10 hex), 128-bit (13 char), and 128-bit (26 hex)
encryption modes, and then fill in the WEP key correctly.
4. WPA-PSK mode - when the WPA-PSK mode is chosen, you need to also choose
between the TKIP and AES encryption modes, and then fill in the WPA-PSK key
correctly. WPA2-PSK is also supported, but WPA/ WPA2 Enterprise is not.
19
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
All the fields on this page must be filled in correctly with the same settings used by
the wireless router or AP.
Figure 3-8: WiFi security enabled page
You can also click the "WiFi test” button to check if the IP CAM can connect to the
wireless network using these settings. After a successful "WiFi test" unplug the
Ethernet cable to enable the wireless connection.
You can click the "WiFi scan” button to scan for all the available access points
nearby.
If you want to use a fixed IP address with a WiFi connection, click the "IP address”
button and enter in your preferred IP address.
After changing settings click the "Save & Apply” button to make the changes take
effect. You do not need to restart the IP CAM for the WiFi to work, just unplug the
Ethernet cable.
The default setting is "Disable WiFi Function”.

Figure 3-9: WiFi testing page
21
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.5. Advanced Network
In some special situations your network environment only provides a PPPoE
connection (ADSL service), with no NAT/router available. You will then need to set the
PPPoE settings on the "Advanced Network” page. Only the PPPoE username and
password are needed to let PPPoE work. After the "Save & Apply” button is clicked
the PPPoE function will work immediately. You can check the "Registration status” on
the "Information” page to see if the IP CAM is registered using the PPPoE connection.
Please be aware that the DHCP or static IP settings on the "Network” page can
work alongside the PPPoE connection. However, the PPPoE has higher priority, so if
the PPPoE is working, the IP CAM will use PPPoE to connect to the Internet.
The default setting is "Disable PPPoE”.
Figure 3-10: Advanced network settings page
22
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.6. Video Settings
The IP CAM is designed to provide high quality video for viewing with the
CamView software. On this page, you can modify some of the settings related to
video viewing:
1. Password (play video) – this is the password needed for viewing the video from
the CamView software. Together with the IP CAM ID, you can view the video of
this IP CAM anywhere in the world through the Internet.
2. Internet speed – this is the Internet bandwidth of your network environment.
Higher values will generate higher video quality, but if your internet connection
cannot provide more bandwidth than the specified value, the video quality could
degrade. So, please enter a value that is lower than your internet bandwidth.
3. Select resolution & frame rate automatically – you can let the system select the
most suitable video resolution and frame rate automatically. The selection is
based on the "Internet speed” value. This is the recommended default setting.
4. Resolution – there are three choices: 160x120, 320x240, and 640x480. If you
decide to set the value manually, be aware that if the Internet speed is too slow
(low value), a high resolution (640x480) or frame rate could cause serious
degradation of video quality.
5. Frame rate – the video frame display rate. Higher values mean faster movement
and continuity in the video display.
6. Favor/Preference – choose between "Video motion” and "Image quality”. When
the real bandwidth is insufficient for the selected "Internet speed”, the system will
need to degrade the video motion or image quality. This selection determines
which aspect of video quality is most important to you.
7. Brightness – the brightness of the video. A lower value means a darker display.
8. Sharpness – the sharpness of the video. A higher value means sharper video.
9. Low light sensitivity – The low light sensitivity can be normal, high, or very high.
When the low light sensitivity is high, the system can produce better video clarity
under low light conditions, but moving objects will lose clarity. Under very dark
environmental conditions, setting the sensitivity to "very high” will get better video
clarity. The default value of this setting is "high”.
10. Video color – choose between "colored” and "black&white”.
11. Video flip – the video output can be inverted for situations in which the camera is
mounted upside down, such as on a ceiling.
12. Outdoor/Indoor video – for better video display quality, set this to the appropriate
value for the environment in which the camera will be used. The default setting is
"Outdoor video”, which in most cases is also ok for indoor usage. Under some
special cases, there could be some strip lines on the video display when the IP
23
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
camera is taking indoor video. In this situation, changing the setting to "Indoor
video” will solve the problem. If using the camera outdoors with the indoor setting
selected, the resulting video is very blurry and vague. For indoor use, if there is
strong sun light into the room, please select the "Indoor+sun light” option.
13. Enable/disable audio microphone – you can enable or disable the audio
microphone on the IP CAM. If disabled, there will be no voice In the CamView
video display.
14. Enable/disable time display on video – if enabled, the date/time of the system will
be displayed on the left-upper corner of the video.
When all modifications are complete, click the "Save & Apply” button. All settings
will take effect immediately, but all the connected video viewing users will be
disconnected.
Figure 3-11: Video settings page
24
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.7. 3GPP/RTSP Settings
The IP CAM can be viewed from any mobile device running iOS or the Android
operating systems with minimum 3G connectivity (bandwidth directly affects received
video quality). For detailed settings on using mobile devices, refer to Appendix E.
You can enable or disable the ability of mobile devices to access the IP CAM on
this page. If the 3GPP/RTSP feature is disabled, mobile devices will not be able to
access the IP CAM, even with the correct Camera ID and password. When this is
disabled, the rtsp stream with MPEG2 audio will still function. Please refer to
Appendix F for more details about the rtsp stream with MPEG2 audio.
When 3GPP is enabled, the video frame rate, resolution, and bandwidth for 3G
mobile access can be set independently from the video settings for CamView (PC)
software access. The maximum allowed resolution is 352x255 and the maximum
allowed bandwidth is 256 kbps. When audio is enabled for both 3GPP and CamView
(PC), and the video/audio is displayed in CamView, the audio will be disabled in 3G
mobile displays.
The "Access URL” line is the URL address for 3G mobile phone to input for
viewing video from the IP camera. Different 3G mobile devices may need to input this
URL in different areas. Detailed information can be found in the user manual of your
mobile device. Please note that a public IP address is needed for the IP camera, so
that the 3G mobile devices can access the IP camera's video.
The default setting is "Enable 3GPP/RTSP”.
Figure 3-12: 3GPP/RTSP enabled page
25
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.8. Night Mode Control
The IP Cam can function in both daylight and the dark of night. The infrared LEDs
on the IP CAM can provide IR illumination for objects up to 10 meters distant. This
night mode control page is used to control when the IR LEDs will be on. There are
three ways to control the night mode (IR LEDs):
1. Automatic day and night mode switch: the IP cam will automatically turn on the
IR LEDs when the lighting conditions are too low for natural light imaging. The
light sensor on the IP cam allows it to detect the light levels.
2. Scheduled time of night mode: the IP Cam can also be scheduled to turn on
the IR LEDs during a specific time range each day.
3. Manual night mode control: the IP Cam can be manually forced into night
mode (IR LEDs on) or day mode (IR LEDs off).
In order to get better video color display during both daylight and darkness, there
is an ICR (IR Cutter Remover) inside the IP Cam. This ICR automatically to filters out
any IR (Infrared) light during the daylight conditions and allows the IR light to pass
through during the hours of darkness. This ensures that the video color quality is
excellent, especially when compared to other IP cameras.
Figure 3-13: Night mode control page.

Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
3.9. Email/FTP Alarm
The IP CAM has a built-in Email/ftp functionality, which can automatically send an
email with a jpg image or push a jpg image to an ftp site whenever an alarm is
triggered. The related settings are explained below:
1. Email/FTP trigger – choose between "motion”, "schedule”, and "disable”
A. If "motion” is selected, it means that when there is a motion detected, the
system will send out the email and/or ftp with the captured video snapshot.
B. If "schedule” is selected, it means that the email/ftp alarm detection and
triggering will be active according to a preset schedule. Refer to the
"scheduling” instructions in section 3.11.
C. If "disable” is select, there will be no email/ftp alarm activity.
2. Motion sensitivity – there are three possible choices in this field.
"High” sensitivity means that an alarm will be triggered if a moving object larger
than about 1% of the entire video area is detected. Note that the real size of
the object is not important. What matters is the size of the moving object in
relation to the rest of the video display area. A small pencil moving close to
the camera could trigger the motion detection, while a large car moving far
away could go unnoticed.
"Median" sensitivity has a size threshold about 3% of the video display area.
"Low” sensitivity has a size threshold of about 10% of the video display area.
3. Send email message – if this option is enabled, the IP CAM will send an email
message with the jpeg picture attached to the specified email account.

3.10. NAS Settings
The IP Camera has the ability to record video files to any standard NAS (Network
Access Storage) device. The IP camera connects to the NAS device using the
standard LMX_NS/CIFS/SSN protocols, which are the same as the Microsoft
Windows network neighborhood protocols. This ability turns a standard NAS into a
NVR (Network Video Recorder) device.
Note: when the IP camera is performing NAS recording it counts are one video
user. Please refer to Appendix B for more information about the maximum number of
video users.
1. If the "Always Recording” option is selected, the system will start to record to the
NAS storage device immediately and will continue to record until the NAS device
is full or recording is turned off. If the "Schedule Recording” option is selected, the
system will perform NAS recording according to the preset schedule, as explained
in section 3.11. The "Disable Recording” option disables NAS recording.
2. When NAS recording is taking place the system will check the free disk space of
the NAS device. If the free disk space is less than the specified number, the
system will do "Circular recording” (overwrite the oldest recorded files of this IP
CAM on the NAS device) or will "Stop recording”, as selected. If the "Keep
recorded video for xx days” option is selected, the system will do circular recording
and over write any recorded video files older than xx days.
3. The IP camera can connect to the NAS device by using the "NAS name” or "NAS
IP address”. If the NAS device and the IP camera are in the same local area
network, the IP camera can automatically locate and connect to the NAS device
using the "NAS name”. If the NAS device uses a fixed IP address (either in the
local area network or in the public internet), the IP camera can connect to it by
using the "NAS IP address” option.
4. The "Shared folder name” is the folder on the NAS device in which recorded video
files by this IP CAM will be stored.
5. The "NAS access account” and "NAS access password” are the username and
password needed to login to the specified "Shared folder name” on the NAS
device.
6. NAS Scan – use this option to scan for specific NAS devices in the local area
network. Not all the NAS devices are supported for this scan function.
7. NAS Info – displays the NAS storage capacity and available disk space.
8. Configure NAS (web) – click this to connect to the web configuration page of the
NAS device. You will need to enter the login username/password of the NAS
device.
29
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
9. Access NAS files – on the Microsoft Windows platform, click this to button access
the files on the NAS devices.
In the Microsoft Windows environment, you can access the NAS device by
entering the URL address \\”NAS name”\”shared folder name” or \\”NAS IP
address”\”shared folder name” into the Windows Internet Explorer address bar,
followed by the "NAS access account” and "NAS access password” into the pop-up
login window. The video files are stored in the subfolder
IPCamRecordFiles/Recording/ID-ID, where ID is the ID of this IP camera. All the
recorded files use the naming format hhmmss.crf, where hh is the hour, mm is the
minute, and ss is the second of the starting time of the recorded video. The files are
segmented every five minutes. You can use the included CamPlay software to play
back the video files.

3.11. Scheduling
The IP Camera includes the ability to schedule the activation of motion detection
triggered email/ftp alerts and/or NAS recording, using the individual parameters set in
the "Email/ftp alarm settings" and the "NAS settings” pages. A total of 12 periods and
events can be scheduled. However, there is no automatic event conflict checking, so
if scheduled periods overlap, the IP CAM will perform all scheduled functions. To
schedule Email/ftp alerts and/or NAS recording, the "Schedule” option must enabled
in the "Email/ftp alarm settings" and/or the "NAS settings” pages.
1. Schedule list – all scheduled events are listed here. Each listed item can be
modified or deleted by clicking the "Edit” or "Delete” button.
2. Email/ftp Alarm – for each scheduled event, if this option is selected and the
"Motion triggered” option is enabled, the IP camera will trigger the email/ftp alert
during the scheduled time period whenever video motion is detected.
3. NAS Record – for each scheduled event, when this option is selected you can
also select either the "Continuous” or "Motion triggered” options. The "Continuous”
option means that the IP CAM will perform the video recording to the NAS device
during the entire scheduled period. The "Motion triggered” option means that the
IP CAM will perform video recording to the NAS device for 30 seconds during the
scheduled period, each time that video motion is detected.
4. For the scheduling period option you can choose between "Every week”, "Every
day”, or "Fixed time” options:
A. The "Every week” option allows you to set the days of the week and the times
of each day during which alerts/recording will take place.
B. The "Every day” option allows you to set the time during which alerts/recording
will take place each day.
C. The "Fixed time” option allows you to set a starting and ending date and time,
during which alerts/recording will take place.

Appendix C. Performance Information
1. Video Performance Information
The video quality is dependent on the video parameter settings and the network
quality. If you want to have a better video quality, you will usually want to set a higher
resolution and a higher frame rate. This is fine when you are viewing the video locally
in the same network, but when you want to see the video remotely through the
Internet, you need to know the Internet speed (bandwidth) of your network. If the
"Internet speed” setting of your IP camera is very large, but your real Internet speed
(bandwidth) is relatively low, the video quality could be very bad. In some worst case
scenarios, the video display could be disconnected entirely. For the best video quality
you should have broadband service from your ISP and should set the "Internet speed”
of the IP CAM a little lower than the real Internet speed provided by your ISP.
Note that when multiple users are displaying the video from the same IP CAM at
the same time, the video bandwidth times the number of users will be needed for the
Internet speed.
2. WiFi Performance Information
The WiFi performance is dependent on the distance between the IP camera and
the AP (Access Point) / router and is dependent on the number of wireless devices
connected to the AP/router. Performance can also be affected by the presence of any
barriers (e.g., floors, walls, etc.) between the IP CAM and the AP/router. If there is any
outdoor space between the IP CAM and the AP/router, be aware that wireless
performance can also be affected by rain or other adverse environmental conditions.
Another factor affecting wireless performance is the antenna gain and directionality in
relation to the AP/router. In general, if the IP camera is set to the default video setting
(256k bps) and there are no other interferences between the IP CAM and the
AP/router, the effective straight-line distance is about 100 meters between IP CAM
and the AP/router.

Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
Appendix D. Troubleshooting
1. What does the flashing red LED on the front of the IP camera indicate?
A: When the IP Cam is connected to the Internet and working correctly, the red LED
light will be on constantly. If the red LED light is flashing, it is probably due to some
network connecting problem. Please check the network connection settings and
make any necessary changes.
2. When the IP Cam is connected to the network through the wireless
connection, the video quality is poor, how can I fix this problem?
A: When the IP Cam is connected using the wireless network and the video quality is
poor, it is because the available bandwidth is insufficient. This could be caused by
too great a distance between the IP Cam and the wireless AP (Access Point) or
router or by having too many wireless clients connected to the AP/router. The use
of a high-gain wireless antenna can improve distance related bandwidth issues,
while disconnected unnecessary clients can reduce the load on the wireless
AP/router. If all else fails, the use of a physical wired connection to the IP CAM
will eliminate wireless bandwidth issues.
3. Can I adjust the effective focus of the IP Cam?
A: The focus of the IP Cam is fixed to an effective distance about 12" (30 cm) to
infinity. In almost all circumstances this will result in clear video with no need to
adjust the focus.
4. What is the viewing angle of the IP Cam?
A: The viewing angle of the IP Cam is about 60 degrees.
5. To what maximum distance can the IP Cam "see"?
A: When using the IP Cam to see a long-distance object, the clarity depends on the
size of the object. Usually if your eyes can see something clearly in that distance,
the IP Cam can also see that object clearly at about the same distance.
6. What should I do if the password is forgotten and the ID/password card is
lost or otherwise missing?
A: The easiest way to solve this problem is to reset the IP Cam to the factory default.
Use a pen or toothpick to press and hold the reset button on the rear panel of the
IP Cam for more than 4 seconds and then release it. The IP Cam will restart to the
factory default settings. The default account username is "admin” and there is no
password. The default video-play password is "ipcam”. You can adjust these
values by using a browser to login to the IP Cam and perform the necessary
modifications.
48
Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
7. What should I do if I cannot hear the audio from the IP Cam?
A: There is a microphone inside the IP Cam. If you can see the video from the
accompanied CamView software, but cannot hear the audio, check the following:
(1). Check that the speakers on your computer are powered on and have a
sufficient volume level by playing some other audio file.
(2). Check if the microphone on the IP Cam is enabled. Login to the web
configuration page of the IP Cam or open the "video settings” in the CamView
software, select the "video” settings, and click the "Enable audio microphone”
option.
8. I can see the video in a remote location, but the video quality is poor.
Sometimes the video will disconnect and then reconnect again by itself.
What is the cause of the problem?
A: It is probably because the internet bandwidth (internet speed) is insufficient. You
can either purchase a faster internet connection from your ISP or can decrease
the bandwidth settings of the IP CAM using either the web configuration page or
the CamView software.
9. Does the IP Cam provide a recording function?
A: Yes, you can record the video/audio of the IP Cam using the CamView software.
You can also perform video/audio recording to a standard NAS storage device.
Use the CamPlay software to playback the recorded video/audio files.
10. Can I connect the IP camera directly to my PC/notebook with an Ethernet
cable?
A: If the IP camera is directly connected to your PC/notebook computer using an
Ethernet cable, the IP camera will automatically use an IP address (called "auto IP”)
of 169.254.xxx.xxx. If your PC/notebook computer is configured to DHCP, it will also
use an "auto IP” address, but it will take about one minute after the IP camera is
connected to the computer and you need to make sure that the WiFi interface on your
PC/notebook computer is disabled. After about one minute, you can run the CamView
software to access the IP camera, the CAM ID should be displayed in the
"auto-search” list. You can then view the video by double clicking the CAM ID icon. Be
aware that in this configuration, other local or remote computers cannot access the IP
CAM or view the video from it.

Plug & Play Wireless Day and Night NetworkCamera
Appendix E. 3GPP/ISMA Operation
3GPP/ISMA operation uses the RTSP protocol for 3G mobile devices to display
the video stream from some network devices, including the IP camera. The IC202w
supports the RTSP protocol and the video/audio codecs needed by 3GPP/ISMA. You
only need to access the address rtsp://ip_cam_address/CAM_ID.password on the 3G
mobile device to access the video of the IP camera. No additional configuration is
required on the IP camera. Note that "ip_cam_address" is the public IP address of the
IP camera, "CAM_ID" is the unique Camera ID of the specific IP camera, and
"password" is the video play password of the specific IP camera (detailed in section
3.6). Different 3G mobile devices may require different operations to enter the RTSP
address. Please contact the 3G mobile device's customer service for more details.
The video quality and resolution is the same value as set on the "video settings”
page. Since the bandwidth provided by the 3G service is less than 256kbps, it is
recommended to configure the "Internet speed” of the IP camera to 128k or 64k bps.
Note 1: when the audio microphone is enabled on the IP camera, if the "Internet
speed” in "video settings” page is larger than 256k or the resolution is 640x480, the
audio will be disabled for 3GPP/ISMA access. In all other cases, the 3G mobile device
will be able to hear the audio from the IP camera.
Note 2: when the audio microphone is enabled on the IP camera, if there is any
3G mobile access to the IP camera with audio enabled, there will be no audio in the
CamView software window for this IP camera.
iPhone users please download the MonoCam app from iTunes App Store.

Appendix F. Third Party and Embedded Web Page
Integration
For third party and embedded web page integration, the IP Camera supports the
standard RTSP protocol and video/audio codecs needed by most popular video
playback software, including Apple QuickTime and VideoLAN. The supported media
protocols include TCP and UDP. The IP Camera will automatically use TCP or UDP
media streaming, depending on the connection request. The video codec supported is
MPEG4 and the supported audio codecs are AMR-NB and MPEG2-audio.
The access methods are as following:
rtsp://ip_cam_address/CAM_ID.password.mp2
for MPEG4 video + MPEG2 audio
rtsp://ip_cam_address/CAM_ID.password
for MPEG4 video + AMR-NB audio
where "ip_cam_address" is the IP address of the IP camera, "CAM_ID" is the
unique Camera ID of the specific IP camera, and "password" is the video play
password of the specific IP camera (detailed in section 3.6). You can modify the
password of the IP camera to prevent others from viewing the video.
For embedded web page integration, add the following code into the proper
position of the desired web page:
