Precautions
1. Do not install the camera near electric or magnetic fields.
Install the camera away from TV/radio transmitters, magnets, electric motors, transformers and
audio speakers since the electromagnetic fields generated from these devices may distort the video
image or otherwise interfere with camera operation.
2. Never disassemble the camera beyond the recommendations in this manual nor introduce
materials other than those recommended herein.
Improper disassembly or introduction of corrosive materials may result in equipment failure or other
damage.
3. Try to avoid facing the camera toward the sun.
In some circumstances, direct sunlight may cause permanent damage to the sensor and/or internal
circuits, as well as creating unbalanced illumination beyond the capability of the camera to
compensate.
4. Keep the power cord away from water and other liquids and never touch the power cord with wet
hands.
Touching a wet power cord with your hands or touching the power cord with wet hands may result
in electric shock.
5. Never install the camera in areas exposed to oil, gas or solvents.
Oil, gas or solvents may result in equipment failure, electric shock or, in extreme cases, fire.
6. Cleaning
For cameras with interchangeable lenses, do not touch the surface of the sensor directly with the
hands. Use lens tissue or a cotton tipped applicator and ethanol to clean the sensor and the camera
lens. Use a damp soft cloth to remove any dirt from the camera body. Please do not use complex
solvents, corrosive or abrasive agents for cleaning of any part of the camera.
7. Do not operate the camera beyond the specified temperature, humidity or power source ratings.
Use the outdoor camera at temperatures within -40°C ~ +50°C ≦ 95% / -40°F ~ +122°F ≦ 95% and
the indoor camera at temperatures within -5°C ~ +50°C ≦ 85% / 23°F ~ +122°F ≦ 85%; this device
is not rated as submersible. The input power source is 10-36VDC/PoE. Be sure to connect the proper
+ / - polarity and voltage, as incorrect polarity or too high a voltage will likely cause the camera to fail,
and such damage is not covered by the warranty. The use of properly fused or Class 2 power limited
type supplies is highly recommended.
8. Mounting
Use care in selecting a solid mounting surface which will support the weight of the camera plus any
wind, snow, ice or other loading, and securely attach the camera to the mounting surface using
screws and anchors which will properly support the camera. If necessary (e.g. when mounting to
drop ceilings) use a safety wire to provide additional support for the camera.

Connecting the Camera to the Network
There are three methods to connect the IP camera to the network: Router or LAN Connection, Direct
High-Speed Connection and One-to-One Connection.
Router or LAN connection
This is the most common connection in which the IP camera is connected to a router and allows
multiple users on and off site to see the IP camera on a LAN/WAN (Internet). The camera must be
assigned an IP address that is compatible with its LAN. By setting up port forwarding on the router,
you can remotely access the cameras from outside of the LAN via the Internet. To remotely access
the Web interface of the IP camera, please refer to 7.3.2 DDNS. To set up port forwarding, please
consult the manual of the router.
Straight-through LAN patch cable
Right: Pinout of a straight-through cable.
25
EPN Series
Direct High-Speed Connection
In a Direct High-Speed Connection, the camera connects directly to a modem without the need for
a router. You need to set the static or dynamic WAN IP address assigned by your ISP (Internet
Service Provider) in the camera’s configuration web pages. To access the camera, just type
“http://xxx”, where xxx is the IP address given by your ISP. If you have a dynamic IP address, this
connection may require that you use DDNS for a reliable connection. Please refer to 7.3.2 DDNS.
One-to-One Connection (Directly from PC to IP Camera)
You can connect directly without using a switch, router or modem. However, only the PC connected
to the camera will be able to view the IP camera. You will also have to manually assign a compatible
IP address to both the computer and the IP camera. Unless the PC has another network connection,
the IP camera will be the only network device visible to the PC. See the diagram below:

DHCP: This setting lets the system use an automatically assigned (dynamic) IP address. This address
can change under certain circumstances. For instance, when the camera’s network switch/hub has
to be rebooted. Do not assign to the DHCP server the same IP addresses used for the other network
cameras and PCs with unique IP addresses.
Static IP: The user can manually set the Static IP address. This type of address is stable and cannot
change, but the user has to make sure there are no address conflicts with other network-connected
devices.
PPPoE: This is a DSL-connection application. The ISP will ask the user to input a username and
password. Contact your ISP for these details.
Note: If PPPoE is selected as the IP type, the supplied IP Utility program will not be able to
detect the device.

DDNS
DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) is a service used to map a domain name to the dynamic IP
address of a network device. You can set up the DDNS service for remote access to the IP camera.
DDNS assigns a domain name (URL) to the IP camera, so that the user does not need to go through the
trouble of checking if the IP address assigned by DHCP Server has changed. Once the IP is changed, the
IP camera will automatically update the information to the DDNS to ensure it is always available for
remote access.
