VLAN
A virtual LAN (VLAN) is any broadcast domain that is partitioned and isolated in a computer
network at the data link layer (OSI layer 2). LAN is an abbreviation of local area network. VLANs
allow network administrators to group hosts together even if the hosts are not on the same
network switch. This can greatly simplify network design and deployment, because VLAN
membership can be configured through software. Without VLANs, grouping hosts according to
their resource needs necessitates the labour of relocating nodes or rewiring data links.

Note:
1) How to set up VLAN in switches, please refers to your switches user manual.
PPPoE
This camera supports the PPPoE auto dial-up function. The camera gets a public IP address by ADSL
dial-up after the camera is connected to a modem. You need to configure the PPPoE parameters of
the network camera.

PPPoE Settings
Note:
1) The obtained IP address is dynamically assigned via PPPoE, so the IP address always changes
after rebooting the camera. To solve the inconvenience of the dynamic IP, you need to get a
domain name from the DDNS provider (e.g. DynDns.com).
2) The user name and password should be assigned by your ISP.
SNMP
You can set the SNMP function to get camera status, parameters and alarm related information
and manage the camera remotely when it is connected to the network.
Before setting the SNMP, please download the SNMP software and manage to receive the camera
information via SNMP port. By setting the Trap Address, the camera can send the alarm event and
exception messages to the surveillance center.

WPS(Wi-Fi Protected Setup)
Originally Wi-Fi Simple Config, it’s a network security standard that allows users to easily secure a
wireless home network. The goal of the protocol is to allow home users who know little of wireless
security and may be intimidated by the available security options to set up Wi-Fi Protected Access,
as well as making it easy to add new devices to an existing network without entering long
password phrases.
PIN Method
It’s a personal identification number (PIN) has to be read from either a sticker or the display on the
new wireless device. You can add the PIN code to the router or you add the Router PIN code on
this camera.
Push-Button Method
The user simply has to push a button, either an actual or virtual one, on both the access point and
the new wireless client device. Support of this mode is mandatory for access points and optional
for connecting devices.

HTTP Notification
Support to pop up the alarm news to specified HTTP URL.
NOTE:
1) The HTTP notification function is just one way for camera to send messages to VMS Software.
And it's the VMS that defines what the messages mean and decides what to do after receiving
this kind of messages. So, we can use the HTTP Notification function of our cameras only if the
VMS supports this kind of message format.
Here will take the Digifort as an example to introduce the HTTP Notification function.
The following are the detail steps of setting for HTTP Notification in Digifort VMS and our
cameras.
Step1: Enable Alarm, set Motion Region and detection Schedule;
Step2: Check the HTTP Notification as Alarm Action, and fill the fields. Then save the
alarm setting;
HTTP User Name: admin (the user name of your camera)
HTTP Password: ms1234 (the password of your camera)
HTTP Notification URL:
http://IP:8601/Interface/Cameras/MotionDetection/Notify?Camera=CameraName
IP refers to the PC's IP where the Digifort installed.
8601 is the port for Motion signal in Digifort.
CameraName is the camera name you set in Digifort VMS, like the picture shown below.
Example:
http://192.168.8.75:8601/Interface/Cameras/MotionDetection/Notify?Camera=annie,
this URL format is exactly supported by Digifort VMS, so we can set as above to our
cameras and get it work well.
Step3: choose use motion detection by external notification;

Step4: If succeeded, you can see the device icon turns yellow in the Surveillance when the
camera is under Motion Detection Alarm;
So, it's the VMS Software which decides whether we can use this function successfully.
Step5: Set alarm settings.

4.4.4 SIP
The Session Initiation Protocol(SIP) is a signaling communications protocol, widely used for
controlling multimedia communication sessions such as voice and video calls over Internet
Protocol(IP) networks. This page allows user to configure SIP related parameters. Milesight
cameras can be configured as SIP endpoint to call out when alarm triggered; or allow permitted
number to call in to check the video if the video IP phone is used. To use this function, the settings
in SIP page must be configured properly. SIP can be achieved in two ways to get the video, one is to
dial the IP address directly, the other is account registration mode, the details are as follows:
Method 1: IP Direct mode
Dial on the camera’s IP address directly through SIP phone, so you can see the video.
(Note: SIP phone and the camera should in the same network segment).
Method2: Account registration mode
1) Before using the SIP, you need to register an account for the camera from the SIP server;
2) Register another user account for the SIP device from the same SIP server;
3) Call the camera User ID from the SIP device, you will get the video on the SIP device.
