NETWORK CONNECTION*
There are two way to power a MEGApix® 1080p™ camera.
Use a PoE-enabled switch to connect data and power through a single
c a b l e a n d b e g i n v i e w i n g a n d r e c o r d i n g i m a g e s i n s t a n t l y. A n o n - P o E s w i t c h
will require an adaptor for power transmission.
1.
Using a PoE-Enabled Switch
The MEGApix® 1080p™ Camera is PoE-Compliant, allowing transmission of power and data via a
single Ethernet cable. PoE eliminates the need for the different cables used to power, record, or
control the camera. Follow the illustration below to connect the camera to a PoE-enabled switch
using an Ethernet cable.
2.
Using 12VDC
If a PoE injector is not available, use a power adaptor for power transmission and a non-PoE switch
for data transmission. Follow the illustrations below to connect the camera without a PoE Injector.

INSTALLATION*
Easy Camera Installation
1.
Detach the camera’s cover dome from the
camera’s module by unscrewing the three cover
dome screws using the L-Wrench.
2.
Use the camera or mounting template to mark and
drill the necessary holes in the wall or ceiling.
3.
Pull wires through and make connections.
4.
Using three (3) included screws, mount and secure
the camera to the wall or ceiling.
5.
Secure the camera’s cover dome onto the camera
base to complete the installation.
6.
See page 10 for camera angle adjustment.
Using the Cable Weather Protector
To use the LAN water protector case, refer to the
diagram below:
1. Insert the network cable into (a), the camera’s
network port.
2. Connect (b) to the camera’s network port by
rotating it clock-wise until tight.
3. To complete the water-proof installation, connect
part (c) to the case’s body, securing tightly by
rotating it clock-wise.
9
INSTALLATION USING MOUNT BOLT & NUT*
Easy Camera Installation
1.
Detach the camera’s cover dome from the camera’s
module by unscrewing the cover dome screws.
2.

DHCP: Select DHCP to access the camera within the same internal network. For further
explanation on DHCP, please see page 15.
2.

DHCP
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network configuration protocol that allows a
device to configure automatically according to the network it is connected to.
If your network supports DHCP and your MEGApix® 1080p™ camera is set to DHCP, IP Finder will
automatically find and set your MEGApix® 1080p™ camera to correspond with your network
requirements.
Static
Static IP addresses are recommended when using a network that does not support DHCP or when
setting your device to be accessed externally via the internet. If Static is selected, you must manually
enter the correct network settings for your MEGApix® 1080p™ camera. The settings will correspond
with your network. To set your camera to a static IP address, we recommend that you (1) setup the
camera to DHCP, (2) allow it to configure itself according to your network, and (3) change the settings
to a static IP address.
1.
To set your MEGApix® 1080p™ camera to Static, highlight the desired device from the search
results list, and click on Configuration. In the “Network Configuration” window, make sure Static
is selected.
2.
Enter the following information: IP Address, Netmask, Gateway, and Preferred DNS.
3.
Click Apply and Reboot to save all changes.

Channel / Stream Selection
On the main monitoring page, user can view the camera with multiple streaming options. The camera
supports the setup of up to three (3) different streams with different resolution, and FPS for maximum
network control. Select which stream/ channel to view in the camera’s main menu by selecting one of
the options from the drop-down menu. See page 25 for stream setup.
Live Video Buffering Selection
Users can also adjust the camera’s live video buffering time. The lower the number, the image will
display with little to no delay, but if network issues arise, the camera’s view may freeze to “buffer”. Set
the buffering time higher to eliminate video freezing. For example, if 500ms is selected (default), the
camera’s live video will display at 500ms delay, allowing the camera 500ms room to buffer during
slow connections and prevent camera freeze.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Before sending your camera for repair, check the following or contact your technical specialist.
I can’t find my MEGApix® 1080p™ camera on the IP Finder software.

Is the PoE cable connected properly?
Make sure cable is tightly connected at both ends. It should make a “click” sound when connected properly. Make
sure cable is intact and there are no cuts or exposed wires.

If Yes, are the camera’s LED light turned on and blinking?
The camera’s LED lights indicate that the camera is powered on. Blinking LED light indicate that the camera has
finished booting up and is transmitting data.

If Yes, is the internet working properly?
Make sure you can connect to the internet with other devices on the network (ex. Your Computer). Your internet
could be temporarily down.

If Yes, if using a power adaptor, does it meet camera’s power requirements?
Power Requirements: DC12V (IR LED Off: 12V, 160mA, IR LED On: 12V, 230mA ), PoE Ports (Class 2, less than 5W)

If Yes, if using PoE Switch, is it connected to a proper internet outlet and operating properly?
Make sure the PoE Switch is connected to a router/modem and the ports that have devices connected to them
have a green LED on.

If Yes, is the computer on the same network as the MEGApix® 1080p™ camera?
Camera and computer should be connected to the same router. Contact your network administrator if you have
more than one network available.

If Yes, try pinging the IP camera’s default IP address 192.168.1.80
From your desktop, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. Type “ping 192.168.1.80” and press
Enter. If you get the message “Request timed out,” camera is not connected. Camera is connected if you get data.

If Yes, try connecting the camera to a different port in the PoE Switch.
That specific Switch Port may be damaged or currently not working properly.

If Yes, try resetting the camera to default settings.
Press the 2 buttons in the back together and hold for 5 seconds. The camera will return to factory default with
default IP address 192.168.1.123. If your network supports DHCP, the camera will be found using the IP Finder
