Features and Benefits
This is a cutting-edge digital video surveillance camera. It can compress and transmit real time
images with outstanding image quality (18 FPS @ SXGA, 1280x1024) through a standard
TCP/IP network. This camera is your best choice to build an intelligent IP surveillance system.
H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG Triple Codec Dual Streaming
This device supports 3 compression formats, H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG. It brings superior
image quality at 18 frames per second up to a resolution of SXGA (1280 x 1024) pixels, and
offers up to 26 frames per second in HD720 (1280x720). In D1 (720 x 480) / VGA (640 x 480) /
QVGA / QQVGA the device reaches 30 frames per second.
Built-in Hardware Motion Detection
No more external motion sensors are required. You may assign up to 3 video motion detection
areas. By tuning the object size and sensitivity, it will reliably detect objects passing though in
view. Hardware motion detection also offers better sensitivity and faster response time than
software motion detection.
Powerful Bundled Surveillance Software
To extend the capabilities of the camera, a powerful surveillance program is included in the
package for free. Users can easily use an existing PC as a digital video recorder. Scheduled
recording and manual recording keep every important video recorded in the local hard disk.
Reliable and accurate motion detection with instant warning enables immediate response in
every condition. Quick and simple search and playback function lets you easily find the images
and video you want.
Software Development Kit Support
This camera can be integrated or controlled by applications from third party software
developers. Software developers can save considerable efforts by using our Streaming Library
or ActiveX control. Please contact us for details on integration support.

1) Ethernet Port
The IP device connects to the Ethernet via a standard RJ45 connector. Supporting NWAY, this
IP device can auto detect the speed of local network segment (10Base-T/100Base-TX
2) Reset Button
Step 1: Switch off IP device by disconnecting the power cable
Step 2: Press and continue to hold the Reset Button (with a sharp tipped object, like a pen.)
Step 3: Reconnect the power cable while continuing to hold the reset button. The red
Power LED light will flash on for 3 second first, turn off for about 15 seconds, flash on for
another second and turn off again. By this time the reset to default operation is already
completed. This will take around 20 seconds from power up. You may then release the
reset button. This length of time fluctuates slightly with the environment. The Power LED light
will come back on and stay on after a few more seconds. The unit will start up with factory
default settings automatically.

How to Do the Waterproof Installation
The following installation procedure makes the camera be water-resistant even for the
situations where the camera can easily be flooded by pouring rain.
The important part to focus on during the installation:
The protection of the cabling has to be done by a proper flex
conduit. The size of the flex conduit that matches with the
conduit gland is 1/2”. Please note that the conduit gland is
included to the package of the bullet camera.
The following images show the step-by-step procedure of
completing the water-proof installation.
Disassemble the conduit gland as
shown on the photo.
Pull the network cable through the flex
conduit. Please note that the size of the
conduit and the gland is big enough to let
the RJ-45 connector pass through all the
Two pieces from the conduit gland set
will be attached to flex conduit first.
TCM-1111 Hardware User’s Manual
The third piece goes through the back
side cover of the camera.
The fourth piece (locking nut) is used
to lock the gland firmly from the inside of the
back side cover.
Pull the network cable through the
back side cover of the camera.
Connect the flex conduit to the back
side cover of the camera.
TCM-1111 Hardware User’s Manual
Tighten the domed sealing nut.
Plug the network cable into the
camera’s RJ-45 connector before closing
the back side of the camera. If you are not
using PoE and need an additional power
cord then please connect it at this stage,
Tighten the screws of the back side of
the camera properly.
Finally, the bullet camera with properly
mounted flex conduit as well as with proper
outdoor bracket would look like this. The
camera is now ready to withstand even the
most severe rain storms.

Basic Connections
Follow the procedures below to connect the IP device to the respective apparatuses.
Please use a PoE (Power over Ethernet) supported switch or injector:
1) Connect your IP Camera to the Switch / Injector by CAT5 or CAT6 cables with RJ45
2) Connect your Switch / Injector to PC with another CAT5 / CAT6 network cable.

2. Accessing Camera
If you have DHCP server / router in your network:
Many network server / routers are able to automatically provide IP addresses through DHCP. If
you are using such a network, just plug in your computer and IP Camera into the network and
your IP device will acquire network address by itself. Find and access the device with our IP
Utility program. You may download it at:
If you do NOT have DHCP server / router in your
1. Configure your PC to use the same subnet by changing your PC’s IP address to the
subnet with prefix 192.168.0.XXX. The last number should be anything from 1 to 254
except 100 and other occupied IP addresses. Subnet mask should be 255.555.255.0.
2. The default IP used by this device is Please make sure your PC is
NOT using this address and that no two equipments use the same IP address in
the network.
