How Does IP Video Surveillance Work?
Wirepath™ IP cameras use a digital image processor to capture video in a stream of packets that are broadcast using a standard
Ethernet network. These packets can be received by several devices at once, including local PCs, mobile devices, and recorders
(NVRs) on the same network, or even off the network (with the correct setup and web access).
Users can see the camera feed through the interface of their choice, or see recorded footage from a storage device like an NVR.
Wirepath Surveillance offers apps for iOS® devices, Android® smartphones, Windows PC, and Mac computers. Drivers for various
popular control systems are also available for integration with a control system.
Access and Use
For local network (LAN) access, a static IP address is assigned to the camera in the network router. The user enters this address
into a PC, smartphone, or other device connected to the LAN, and logs in using a customizable username and password.
For access outside the LAN, a port is forwarded to the camera in the network router settings and a DDNS address is set up in the
camera. This enables the same streams from the camera to be broadcast anywhere in the world over an Internet connection.
In systems where the camera stream must be recorded, a network video recorder (NVR) is connected to the LAN. The address and
login credentials for the camera are entered and the stream can be captured as needed for later viewing.

6.2. Choosing the Right Network Equipment
Streaming content from IP Cameras requires more bandwidth than most IP devices. We recommend using 1Gbps routers and
switches to maintain a high quality streaming image. To reduce traffic on the overall network, we also recommend that all IP
Surveillance devices be connected to a dedicated 1Gbps switch or VLAN.
6.3. PoE Requirements- IEEE 802.3af
Cameras must be connected to a PoE injector (inline PoE power supply) or a PoE-equipped port of a network router or switch built
to IEEE 802.3af standards. Consider installing a dedicated PoE switch specifically for IP cameras on the network to avoid issues
relating to power shortage.

9.2.2.1. NTP Time
Network Time Protocol (NTP) Servers are computers on the Internet that provide reliable time and date values for other equipment.
NTP values are synchronized to be accurate to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Using NTP for time synchronization ensures
the most accurate time possible for recorded footage. This setting should be used as long as the camera can access the Internet at
least some of the time.
1
NTP Server
Default setting is pool.ntp.org, the most widely used NTP server. Change the server only if directed to
do so by the network administrator.
Update
Select how often to check for time updates from the drop-down. Do not set the value to “None” or the
camera will never update if the time becomes inaccurate. Selection 1-48 hours. Default: 6 hours.
Time Shift
Shift the camera time forward or behind by any number of minutes from the NTP time. Default: 0.
Click “Apply” at the bottom right of the page to save modified settings.

•
•
Default DST settings are standard for most regions.
If changes are required, set the Month, Week, Day of Week, and Time for the DST “Start” and “End”.
D. Enter “pool.ntp.org” in the “NTP Server” field. Only use a different setting if instructed to do so by the network administrator.
E. 6 hours should be a sufficient setting for time updates. If constant or regular power outages occur, or Internet access is
restricted at certain times, the setting may be decreased or increased.
F. Time shift may be set to a positive or negative number of minutes if the camera time must be off by a set amount. Do not use
this setting to alter the time for Daylight Savings Time.
G. Click “Apply” at the bottom right of the page to save any changes made. Settings are now complete.
9.2.2.6. Time Setup for Cameras without Internet Access
For IP cameras connected to isolated networks, time may be manually synchronized to a separate system using the “Manual”
setting (section 9.2.2.3. Manual). This is ideal for locations where the camera may not be accessed for long periods, as long as
power is stable.
If the camera will be regularly accessed by a mobile PC, the best way to set the time is to use the “Synchronize with PC’s Time”
setting (section 9.2.2.2. Synchronize with PC’s Time). This will reset the camera time each time it is accessed. The PC will be much
more likely to have accurate settings, since it also connects to other networks and the Internet.

9.3.1.4. RTSP Setting
The camera supports Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP). RTSP is a network protocol designed to allow media devices to stream
content over Ethernet to devices on the same network or even to devices over the Internet. Instead of using a separate server or
video recorder to control the video feed to remote devices, RTSP allows direct control of the stream from within the camera. This
technology enables Wirepath™ products to stream video to devices even if they can’t support any of our remote viewing apps. Leave
RTSP disabled if it will not be used.

RTSP Server
Enable or disable RTSP. If RTSP is disabled, no connection can be made using the protocol.
“Disable” means that everyone who knows your camera’s IP Address can link to your camera via RTSP.
No username and password are required. Under “Basic” and “Digest” authentication mode, the camera
Authentication asks for a username and password before access is allowed. The password is transmitted as a clear
text in “Basic” mode and hides it in “Digest” mode.

9.3.5. Advanced IP Settings - QoS/DSCP
Quality of Service (QoS) is used within a network to define priority levels for selected traffic. This allows for a higher level
of bandwidth to be used whenever a particular type of traffic is being sent to avoid latency and packet loss. The network
administrator should be consulted before enabling this feature.
For example: Video streams require more bandwidth than email notifications. By assigning a higher DSCP (Differentiated Services
Code Point) number to video streams guarantees the quality of the stream on the network.

9.3.7. DDNS Setup
9.3.7.1. DDNS Overview
Dynamic Domain Name Servers (DDNS) map an alphanumeric Internet domain name to a network’s WAN IP address. When
configured, DDNS enables login to cameras from anywhere on the Internet without having to remember a numeric address that
could change on a regular basis. Configuring DDNS is not required for remote access, but makes access easier. Only one device
on the network requires DDNS setup. After one device is configured, the same address can be used to access other devices as
long as ports are set differently for each camera. (See section 9.3.7.4. Setting Up a DDNS Address – WirepathDNS)
Our free Wirepath™ DNS service is fast to set up right through the camera interface – no PC required – and it provides maximum
uptime thanks to redundant USA-based servers located across the country.
If an NVR is being used in the system, we recommend that remote DDNS access is handled through the
NVR. Only configure remote access for cameras that must be accessed from outside the local network
independently.

9.4.1.1. Tips for Getting the Best Camera Image
•
Too much brightness causes the image to fade. Too little brightness will cause dark colors to run together.
•
Too much contrast will cause obscured details. Too little contrast will cause the image to lose clarity and brightness.
•
Too much saturation will cause colors to be inaccurate. Too little saturation will cause the image to appear black and white.
•
Increase AGC only if contrast in the scene is too dark in some areas and too bright in others. Too much AGC can drastically
reduce image clarity in low-light scenes.
•
Lower shutter time values increase the amount of light available, but can increase movement blur. Higher shutter time values
decrease lighting, but motion is captured more clearly.
•
Leave Sense-Up OFF unless required for scenes containing very bright and dark areas at the same time (such as heavily
backlit windows).
•
DNR can reduce some digital noise that occurs in dimly lit scenes. Use the lowest setting that provides adequate image quality.

9.4.2. How to Configure Day & Night Settings (Color Modes)
The camera can record an image in color or black-and-white mode. Color mode requires more light but provides the best image
given ideal conditions. Black and white requires much less light, and the camera’s IR can be turned on to illuminate the scene.
If the camera view is not ideal after installation, adjustments can be made to optimize the automatic settings or set them manually.
9.4.2.1. Day & Night Modes
Select the mode from the Day and Night drop-down menu.
Light Sensor
Mode
(Default)
Uses camera light sensor to switch between Color (Day) and B&W (Night) modes.
See section 9.4.2.3. Light Sensor Mode (Default Mode)
Color Mode
(Day)
Forces camera to Color (Day) mode only. Useful for scenes that will be consistently lit and when color
video is always preferred. All sub-settings are disabled in Day mode. Use the Image Settings to adjust
the picture. See section 9.4.1. Image Settings Menu.
B&W Mode
(Night)
Forces camera to B&W (Night) mode only, increasing low-light performance. Useful for scenes that will
consistently be poorly lit.
Times Mode
Forces camera to switch between Color and B&W modes at specific times.
If the camera view is not ideal after installation, adjustments can be made to optimize the automatic settings.

Synchronize
with DI Input
Selects Color and B&W modes based on the state of a contact output from an external device (such
as a security lighting sensor) connected to the camera’s DI input. When the connection is Open the
camera switches to Color (Day) mode; when the connection is Closed, camera switches to B&W (Night)
mode.
9.4.2.3. Light Sensor Mode (Default Mode)
The default day-night settings are usually ideal. The camera has been calibrated to run in color mode as long as enough ambient
light is available for the sensor to use. Once the scene begins to darken, the camera will adjust to black and white night mode, and
the IR LEDs will turn on as needed. Change the Lux variables to optimize the switch between modes for the scene.
Night to Day
Lux
Sets the detected light level at which the camera will switch from B&W (Night) mode to Color (Day)
mode. Selected level must be at least 4 units higher than Day to Night Lux setting.
• Higher – requires a brighter scene to switch to Day mode.
• Lower – requires a more dimly-lit scene to switch to Day mode.
Day to Night
Lux
Sets the detected light level at which the camera will switch from Color (Day) to B&W (Night) mode.
Selected level must be at least 4 units lower than Night to Day Lux setting.
• Higher – turns to Night mode faster (scene can be brighter and Night mode still turns on).
• Lower – has to be darker before switching to Night mode.

which requires robust processing to decode in real-time. This profile should be used
in conjunction with a Wirepath NVR or in stand-alone applications when maximum
video quality is paramount.
Baseline
Baseline: This profile provides slightly lower quality and less compression, making
it easier for less-robust processors to decode in real-time. This profile may provide
benefits in stand-alone applications without a Wirepath NVR, when camera will be

is a priority.
Profile
Bitrate
Control Mode
CBR – (Constant Bitrate) Bitrate of the image will remain constant regardless of
image complexity. Provides a fixed, known bandwidth use.
(Advanced Mode only)
VBR – (Variable Bitrate) Bitrate of image increases and decreases based on image
complexity. A higher quality image can be transmitted but during complex scenes
bandwidth use increases.
Changes the range of VBR bitrate to Low or High.
Video
Quantitative
• In “Basic” mode, settings range from Low (slowest) - Medium - Standard - High - Best (fastest).
• In “Advanced” mode, quality may be set from 1 (slowest) to 9 (fastest).
When this setting is changed, Bitrate Control Mode automatically changes to VBR, and the bitrate will increase
or decrease depending on the select option.
This setting will change if the camera is enabled or modified from a Wirepath™ NVR, since the NVR
requires a CBR stream.
Video Bitrate
(Advanced Mode Only) Sets the fixed bitrate to use when CBR is selected for bitrate control. The recommend
setting is 1, 2, 4, 6 or 8 Mbps for compatibility with Wirepath NVRs.
Video Frame
Rate
Adjusts the bitrate from 5 FPS to 30 FPS for streaming 1, and from 5 FPS to 15 FPS for Streaming 2. Higher
FPS (Frames Per Second) provides a smoother image but some display interfaces or devices may not be able
to support the higher rate.
Use the defaults 30 FPS (Streaming 1) and 15 FPS (Streaming 2) unless video display problems occur.

GOP Size
GOP (Group of Pictures) is used to generate the visible frames of a video stream. The GOP size setting
determines the multiplier to use for producing intermediate frames based on a standard of 15fps.
Example: 1/2x FPS=7.5fps 1x FPS=15fps 2x FPS=30fps
Note: Changing this setting will affect the performance of the stream. The highest setting (2X FPS) may result in
saved video playback issues when Video Format is MPEG4 or MJPEG. We recommend that this setting is left at
the default setting.
Video Format
While the default of H.264 is most efficient and will work in most cases; some devices that access Streaming 1
or Streaming 2 video streams may not support this format. For example, mobile devices, and automation system
GUIs sometimes do not support H.264. Adjust the format to suit the system requirements and intended use of
the streams.

10. Internal Heater Overview
This IP camera is equipped with an internal heating element that is programmed to turn on as needed based on ambient
temperature. If temperatures fall below 23°F for an extended period, the internal heater will turn on to keep the iris operating
correctly. Without this feature, the iris could become so cold that it sticks in place, causing the camera to lose picture. Once
temperatures rise back above 59°F, the heater will turn off to save power.
Temperature
Operating Behavior
23°F (-5°C) or lower
Heater will turn on to protect camera
-40°F (-40°C) or lower
Camera should be powered off to protect internals. Keep the camera off until temperature rises to a
safe range.
59°F (15°C)-113°F (45°C)
Heater will turn back off.
Over 113°F (45°C)
Camera should be powered off to protect internals. Keep the camera off until temperature falls to a
safe range.
10.1. Safe Operating Range
•
64
-40°F ~ 113°F (-20°C ~ 45°C)
• If the ambient temperature is between these temperatures, the camera should power up and operate normally.
• If temperatures remain above or below the safe operating range, the camera will shut off or will not power on to
avoid damage to the internals.

11. Reset Procedure
If the camera ever becomes unresponsive after an update, or Administrator access is lost, it may be necessary to manually reset
the camera back to default configuration. The procedure was designed to require significant effort so that resets could not easily be
done with malicious intent. For this reason, it may be necessary to remove the camera to do the reset unless an assistant can help.
Warning! Resetting the camera erases ALL settings, including IP and user/admin settings. Use the IP Installer
software to rediscover the camera on the network after the reset. The IP address will return to DHCP.
Important! You must have direct access to the camera and its power source to reset the firmware. Have a way
of reaching the camera. Have an assistant to help control power, or remove the camera to perform the reset.
A. Remove power to the camera at the power supply location or by disconnecting the network cable from the network (if using
PoE power).
B. Open the camera cap and rotate the gimbal so the small black momentary switch on the board is accessible:
C. To perform the reset, the button must be pressed and held for 30 seconds while power is applied. The button must remain
pressed for the entire 30 seconds.
D. After 30 seconds, release the button. The camera will boot up as normal and can be discovered on the network again using the
IP Installer software.
12. Mobile App Access
Use your computer, or FREE iPhone®, native iPad®, or Android® smartphone apps to view cameras while at the office or on the go.
