Camera Discovery
After the AV200 is installed, the first time it
is launched the System Setup Wizard will
be started.
1. Install the AV200 application manager
Software found on the CD.
Anytime you wish to re run the setup wizard
in the future you can access it from your
desktop by clicking on the icon called
NOTE: you can download latest version AV200
and installation manual on website
http://www.arecontvision.com/softwares.php
2. Running the Program Installer
“AVSysSetup”.
The first screen the wizard displays is the
welcome screen.
To begin the installation of the AV200
software, launch the AVSysSetup.msi
installer (double-click or right click and
chose Open).
This will start the installation and is followed
by the installation welcome screen.
Click next to continue. Following the
welcome screen, the Accounts screen will
ask to set up Administrator and User
passwords.
Click next and follow the AV200 Setup
Wizard to install the AV200.
3. Adding Cameras with System Setup Wizard

Arecont Vision MegaView® 2 Installation Manual
An Administrator password must be set and
confirmed. The wizard will not allow a blank
password for Administrator and setup
cannot proceed without setting one.
User password can be left blank, allowing
standard users to launch the application
without a password. Click Next to continue.
The next screen in the wizard is the camera
discovery page.
The Refresh button provides an option to
make sure all cameras are found or to
rediscover cameras that were connected
after wizard started.
If Refresh is selected, the wizard will display
the discovery screen while it searches for
cameras on the network.
A range of IP addresses can be defined to
apply to the cameras. If unchanged, the
default address range will be defined by the
IP address currently assigned to the
computer. The second IP range means
cameras within this range will be not
selected by default. No changes will be
made to any cameras not selected (see
next wizard page).
Click Next to continue.
The following screen will display a list of
cameras discovered on the network.

If you have recording licenses click the
button called “Import licenses” to browse to
the folder on your computer the license files
are located. As example if you had licenses
for cameras previously in AV100 software
they will usually be found in the “C:\Program
Files\Arecont Vision\Video

selected cameras check the radio button
labeled Force IP renewal.
When the discovery process ends, a list of
cameras found on the network will be
displayed.
If changes are made to the address, the
screen will be followed by an individual
confirmation of the IP address change and
the title of each camera found on the
network.
The camera model, MAC address, current
IP address and status of the camera will be
displayed in the list.
Individual confirmation screens for each
camera can be skipped, but the software
will change the IP addresses of each
camera found without confirmation.
To change all the addresses and skip to the
end of the set up process, check the radio
button called do not show info for individual
cameras.
Click next and receive a pop-up
confirmation window warning that camera IP
addresses will be changed.
If the current IP address assigned to the
camera is incompatible with the subnet the
computer running AV200 is assigned to; a
warning icon will be displayed next to the
camera title and the Action message will
display signifying the camera as
inaccessible.
No camera IP addresses are changed at
this stage. To apply an IP change to all

If the option for Do not show info for
individual cameras is selected, the wizard
will jump to the summary screen.
If Do not show info for individual cameras is
not selected, the next series of screens will
display a screen for each camera
discovered.
Check the cameras listed on this screen to
confirm that all cameras connected to the
network have been discovered and
successfully installed.
If necessary, click Back to re-run the
discovery process or click next to proceed
to the final setup screen.
The Model, MAC address, Firmware/
Hardware version, and a preview image
from the camera will be displayed. There is
an option to change the camera Name or
configure a custom IP address different than
the one currently assigned.
The final screen indicates that the system
setup is complete.
Click “Close” to complete the wizard and
exit the software.
4. To launch the AV200 application click on
the desktop icon called “AV200”
There is also an option to choose to restore
the camera to its previous IP address.
To skip any remaining individual camera
information pages, check the radio button
for “do not show info for individual

can be made to the other settings in this
menu
Extended radio button enables the
“extended” motion detection from default 64
to 1024 detection zones for enhanced
detection sensitivity
Arecont Vision MegaView® 2 Installation Manual
Zone Size determines the size of the
detection zone grid displayed when motion
detection feature is enabled
Note: if the zone size is set too small for
image sensor pixel resolution the motion
detection grid can be made smaller than the
actual image size. Areas not covered by the
grid will not be monitored for motion
will make motion detection more sensitive to
large changes in the image.
Note: the motion mask setting under the Video
menus requires Enable to be selected as on
before areas can be masked to prevent motion
detection in selected zones
8. Privacy Mask Menu
Detail determines the size of each zone
displayed by the motion detection grid
contains sub zones the number of which is
determined by the zone size setting up to
32x32 (pixels). This setting configures the
sensitivity of the motion detection to the size
of objects in the image moving through the
zone. Higher values will trigger motion only
for larger objects moving through the zone,
lower values will cause detection of smaller
objects in the zone (increasing sensitivity to
smaller size objects moving through the
image)
Level threshold determines the sensitivity to
brightness changes between dark and light
objects within each grid zone. As example
“Detail” will set the size of the object being
detected within the zone, “level” sets the
duration that movement must be maintained
to trigger motion detection. Lower settings
can increase false motion alarms caused by
image noise, higher settings will require
more movement to trigger a motion event
Motion Sensitivity, % determines the
sensitivity to sudden overall brightness
changes in the image. This setting can be
useful to prevent false motion alarms due to
sudden exposure changes such as car head
lights from triggering motion detection.
Larger values will disregard larger changes
affecting the entire image, smaller values

SD Card Functionality
Important notes about this feature:
1. The camera will support class 10 microSD or microSDHC cards up to 32GB Not all SD cards are the same.
Arecont Vision highly recommends using SanDisk Extreme Micro SD cards (or an equivalent substitute) as
these cards have been fully tested without issue. The SanDisk Extreme line is better suited for demanding
applications like constant recording. Typical lower grade SD cards are meant for multimedia applications
and will, at times, have questionable quality and reliability.
2. Recording to the SD card is FIFO (first in first out). The oldest (first) entry is deleted first as new storage
requirements arise. There is no indication when this will happen. Storage time is dependent on a variety of
factors such as SD card size and camera FPS.
3. SD Recording supports video only. Audio is not supported.
1. Insert a SD card into the SD card slot. The
location of SD card slot is shown as image
below
NOTE: When SD card is installed, please reboot
the camera
