Microdome Duo®
Installation Manual
Camera Overview
The MicroDome Duo multi-sensor, multi-megapixel 2-dome cameras provide users with professional
surveillance experience for a variety of network surveillance requirements.
The MicroDome Duo multi-megapixel cameras series feature a choice of 4-, 6- or 10-megapixel resolution
options, including 4- and 6-megapixel WDR options.
These remote focus true day/night cameras are available with a choice of lenses including 2.8mm, 8mm or no
lens options.
For added flexibility, users can place both individual three-axis lens gimbals independently in any direction
These cameras are ideal for indoor and outdoor use and deliver excellent low light imaging.
Regardless of time-of-day, this camera is ideal for applications with challenging lighting conditions. The series
combines a day/night mechanical IR cut filter for the highest image quality at any time of day. For applications
with bright or over saturated lighting conditions, optional wide dynamic range delivers up to 100dB at full
resolution and is available on select 4 and 6MP models. For applications with poor low lighting conditions,
Binning Mode increases the camera’s low light performance by combining pixels so that more light can be
collected.
MicroDome Duo cameras are designed for demanding environments. They are rated IP 66 for dust and water
ingress protection and rated IK-10 for vandal resistance.
The cameras offer advanced streaming capabilities and is designed on an efficient H.264 encoding platform
capable of delivering high quality video without straining the network. Power can be supplied via a single
Power-over-Ethernet compliant network cable or with power from a 12-48V DC/24V AC power supply.
The camera's interface allows for an intuitive, fast, and easy configuration; while the Free AV IP Utility tool
allows users to quickly configure multiple cameras at one time. The MicroDome Duo is PSIA (Physical Security
Interoperability Alliance) compliant, providing interoperability between network video products regardless of
manufacturer.

This product should be installed by a qualified service technician in accordance with the National Electrical
Code (NEC 800 CEC Section 60) or applicable local code. Make sure that your installation of wires complies
with Electrical Code of the local government where the camera is installed and no bare wires are exposed.
1. Remove cover from the camera as described on page 6.
2. Plug one end of Ethernet cable into female end of pre-installed camera Ethernet cable.
3. Plug opposite end of Ethernet cable into PoE port on 100Mbps Poe switch, Cat 5e or Cat 6 cables are
recommended.

Use of Auxiliary Power
1. If the camera is powered by a separate outside AC or DC power source, run the wire (not supplied)
through the grommet and connect the power cable to the 4-position connector on the Main Board. (see
Page 17 and 18 for illustration and detailed instructions)
2. The Poke-Home connector requires 18 AWG to 24 AWG wire (solid or stranded).
3. Please refer to picture below for more information on cable preparation and use
NOTE: Wiring methods shall be in accordance with the National Electrical Code/NFPA 70/ANSI, and with all
local codes and authorities having jurisdiction. Wiring should be UL Listed and/or Recognized wire suitable for

Camera Discovery, Setup, and Configuration
For camera discovery and setup, the AV IP Utility is recommended. The software can be
found on the CD included with your camera or at:
http://www.arecontvision.com/softwares.php.
The AV IP Utility has the ability to provide multiple discovery options, including broadcast and
multicast, check the status of a camera, change camera settings, import and export camera
settings via a .csv file, and update firmware and/or hardware from virtually anywhere with a
network connection.
Whether used for large installations that require an update to multiple settings, or smaller
installations where only one camera needs changed, the AV IP Utility tool is efficient and
convenient for mass or single camera uploads.
The AV IP Utility tool is compatible with all Arecont Vision megapixel cameras. The user
manual for the software is included on the CD that comes with your camera or available on
our website.

Network Protocols
The Arecont Vision MicroDome Duo cameras support RTSP, RTP/TCP, RTP/UDP, HTTP,
DHCP, TFTP, QoS, IP version 4 (IPv4) and IP version 6 (IPv6).
RTSP Cameras communicate with video management systems over Real Time Streaming
Protocol. Do not change the RTSP port unless you are sure your VMS does not use the
default setting.
RTP/TCP The Real-time Protocol/Transmission Control Protocol is best suited for
applications that require high reliability, and transmission time is relatively less critical.
RTP/UDP The Real-time Protocol/User Datagram Protocol is used for live unicast video,
especially when it is important to always have an up-to-date video stream, even if some
images are dropped.
HTTP The Hypertext Transfer Protocol is an application protocol for data transmission.
The HTTP interface on a camera allows users to connect to it with a web browser and
a GUI interface.
DHCP The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol allows network administrators to centrally
manage and automate the assignment of IP addresses. DHCP should only be enabled if
using dynamic IP address assignment.
TFTP The Trivial File Transfer Protocol is a protocol used for file management and transfer.
On a camera the TFTP is used to receive commands or to stream video. TFTP lacks security
features.
QoS Quality of Service can assign a higher priority for a given type of IP traffic. A QoS-aware
network prioritizes network traffic and provides greater network reliability by controlling the
amount of bandwidth an application may use.
ONVIF – The Open Network Video Interface is a protocol specific to IP cameras that provides a
common interface for all camera manufacturers. ONVIF is an industry wide standard for camera
configuration, discovery, user authentication, security, event notification, and video streaming.
IPv4 The MicroDome Duo supports the IPv4 internet-layer protocol for packet-switched
internetworking across multiple IP networks. IPv4 uses 32-bit addressing which allows for
devices and users on the internet for routing traffic.

A. There are two types of users with the following reserved names:
admin – full access to all camera settings and live video.
viewer –viewing access only to live video.
Setting and removing the passwords is the privilege of the admin user, while the viewer can only use the
existing password, but not change it. Factory defaults erase all current passwords for both the admin and the
viewer. A newly shipped camera has no password protection and allows full anonymous access from the
network. In case the admin password has not been set, the camera has full anonymous access from the
network, even if the viewer password has been set.
B. Access control setup consists of three steps:
1. Set admin password (using http commands or using the camera’s web page, see below).
2. Log-in using the admin password and set the viewer password.
3. Communicate the viewer password to the users.
NOTE: The Password accepts a 16 character ASCII but cannot contain white space or following illegal
symbols: # % & ` “ ‘ < >.
In order to delete viewer password, log-in as admin and change the viewer password to a reserved password
empty – this would restore the full anonymous access to the camera. The admin user can change the viewer
password at any time, even without knowing the current viewer password.
NOTE: If the admin password has been set and forgotten, it can only be erased by AV IP Utility using key file.
Please contact Arecont Vision technical support to obtain the key file required to perform this function.
