How to Connect Digital Input / Digital Output Devices
Depending on your surveillance needs, you may need to connect digital input or output devices to
your camera to trigger events or notifications.
Digital Input (DI) devices can be used to notify the camera about an activity in the camera site. DI
can be triggers of events. For example, you can connect a “panic button” to the camera; as such
when the panic button is pressed, the alarm signal will be sent through the camera. Other
common DI device applications are emergency button, smoke detector, passive infrared sensor,
etc.
Digital Output (DO) devices are external devices that are activated by the camera upon an event
inside the camera. For example, you can connect an “alarm horn” to the camera; as such when
an event occurs inside the camera (e.g. detected intruder), the alarm horn will sound. Other
common DO device applications are motion-triggered lights, electric fence, magnetic door locks,
etc.

< 24V DC, < 100mA
Typical Connection
Based on these specifications, if the DI device has a voltage of 0V ~ 30V or the DO device has a
voltage of < 24V (<100mA), then the camera can supply internal power to these devices and
there is no need to connect the DI/DO device to an external power source.
In this case, use the Black (GND) and the Orange (DI1) cables to connect a DI device and use
the Red (12V) and the Yellow (DO1) cables to connect a DO device. See wiring scheme below:
Consequently, to connect a second DI or DO device, use the Black (GND) and Green (DI2)
cables to connect the second DI device, and the Red (12V) and Blue (DO2) cables for the second
DO device.

High Voltage DO Device Connection
Even though the camera provides 12V power, this may not be enough for some high voltage DO
devices, such as a ceiling light or a motor that opens or closes a gate. In this case, there is a
need to connect an external relay. See wiring scheme below:
Note that when choosing an appropriate relay, please refer to its specifications and make sure
they match the above design. The triggering circuit voltage has to be around 12V DC and the
switch-controlled circuit voltage has to match the external power supply (e.g. 110V AC or 220V
AC).

Hardware Manual
Accessing the Camera
Configure the IP Addresses
In order to be able to communicate with the camera from your PC, both the camera and the PC
have to be within the same network segment. In most cases, it means that they both should have
very similar IP addresses, where only the last number of the IP address is different from each
other. There are 2 different approaches to IP Address management in Local Area Networks – by
DHCP Server or Manually.
Using DHCP server to assign IP addresses
If you have connected the computer and the camera into the network that has a DHCP server
running, then you do not need to configure the IP addresses at all – both the camera and the PC
would request a unique IP address from the DHCP server automatically. In such case, the
camera will immediately be ready for the access from the PC. The user, however, might not know
the IP address of the camera yet. It is necessary to know the IP address of the camera in order to
access it using a Web browser.
The quickest way to discover the cameras in the network is to use the simplest network
search, built in the Windows system – just by pressing the “Network” icon, all the cameras of the
local area network will be discovered by Windows, thanks to the UPnP function support of our
cameras.
In the example below, the camera model that has just been connected to the network is
successfully found.
Double-click the mouse on the camera model name, the default browser of the PC is
automatically launched and the IP address of the target camera is already filled in the address
bar of the browser.
41
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
If you work with our cameras regularly, then there is even a better way to discover the
cameras in the network – by using IP Utility. The IP Utility is a light software tool that can not
only discover the cameras, but also list lots of valuable information, such as IP and MAC
addresses, serial numbers, firmware versions, etc, and allows quick configuration of multiple
devices at the same time.
The IP Utility can be downloaded for free from http://www.acti.com/IP_Utility
When you launch IP Utility, the list of connected cameras in the network will be shown. See
sample illustration below:
The camera model name is shown on the list. Click on the IP address to automatically launch the
default browser of the PC with the IP address of the target camera already filled in the address
bar of the browser.
42
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
Use the default IP address of the camera
If there is no DHCP server in the given network, the user may have to manually assign the IP
addresses to both the PC and the camera to make sure they are in the same network segment.
When the camera is plugged into the network and it does not detect any DHCP services, it will
automatically assign itself a default IP:
192.168.0.100
Whereas the default port number would be 80. In order to access that camera, the IP address of
the PC has to be configured to match the network segment of the camera.
Manually adjust the IP address of the PC
In the following example, based on Windows 7, we will configure the IP address to 192.168.0.99
and set Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0 by using the steps below:
1

43
www.acti.com
Hardware Manual
Manually adjust the IP addresses of multiple cameras
If there are more than one camera to be used in the same local area network and there is no
DHCP server to assign unique IP addresses to each of them, all of the cameras would then have
the initial IP address of 192.168.0.100, which is not a proper situation for network devices – all
the IP addresses have to be different from each other. The easiest way to assign cameras the IP
addresses is by using IP Utility:
With the procedure shown above, all the cameras will have unique IP addresses, starting from
192.168.0.101. In case there are 20 cameras selected, the last one of the cameras would have
the IP 192.168.0.120.
Later, by pressing the “Refresh” button of the IP Utility, you will be able to see the list of cameras
with their new IP addresses.
Please note that it is also possible to change the IP addresses manually by using the Web
browser. In such case, please plug in only one camera at a time, and change its IP address by
using the Web browser before plugging in the next one. This way, the Web browser will not be
confused about two devices having the same IP address at the same time.

Access the Camera
Now that the camera and the PC both have their unique IP addresses and are under the same
network segment, you can use Microsoft Internet Explorer on the PC to access the camera.
You can use any of the browsers to access the camera, however, the full functionality is
provided only for Microsoft Internet Explorer.

prompted so. No other third party utilities are required to be installed in such case.
The following examples in this manual are based on Internet Explorer browser in order to
cover all functions of the camera.

Assuming that the camera’s IP address is 192.168.0.100, you can access it by opening the Web
browser and typing the following address into Web browser’s address bar:
http://192.168.0.100
Upon successful connection to the camera, the user interface called Web Configurator would
appear together with the login page. The HTTP port number was not added behind the IP
address since the default HTTP port of the camera is 80, which can be omitted from the address
for convenience.
Before logging in, you need to know the factory default Account and Password of the camera.
Account: Admin
Password: 123456
